McCoin & Smith Communications is the only PR firm in North America that focuses exclusively on data, analytics and intelligence technologies.
Elizabeth Walther, Paxata
“February may be the shortest month of the year, but in the past 28 days we set the record for the most press coverage in Paxata's history - 17 articles! It is no coincidence that it happens to be the first month we had McCoin & Smith fully on board as our PR partners.”

"I get about 122 pitches a day, but I really liked how you pitched a story and not a product…that is what made me read your email. You guys are very effective, and that is rare these days."
Terry Stickler, VP Marketing, NA - Stibo Systems
“The dynamic duo of McCoin & Smith is unique because they specialize in public relations for data-related technology. They understand how to articulate messages that resonate with the marketplace. M&S has developed story ideas and pitches ranging from the highly technical “How to articles” that appeal to data scientists and stewards all the way to vertical and departmental angles that map to lines of business users. They are a highly regarded member our team, and their flexible and adaptable model ensures that they are always looking out for our best interests. Unlike other agencies I have worked with, Chris and Rick continuously look for opportunities that deliver ROI time and time again.”
Ray Wang, Principal & CEO, Constellation Research
“McCoin & Smith Communications has that special touch in building relationships with the key media and analysts who influence the specialized world of data and analytics. Their success in putting companies on the map comes from an understanding of the technology from both the buyers and vendors perspective. More importantly, they know how to prepare the vendors so that they deliver the right resources to the analysts in the right communications channel. I have worked with them for over 7 years and have always found them to be professional and respectful.”
Julie Sall, VP Marketing, Connance
“Having the firm’s principals as our account team made a clear distinction between McCoin & Smith and other firms. Chris and Rick were an integral part of our over-all marketing team and efforts. They think strategically, and were able to successfully penetrate a very narrow and important segment of the media. Their creativity resulted in a campaign which placed our CEO in front of our prospective buyers on numerous occasions. In such a competitive PR market, I would highly recommend them for any organization that wants to drive awareness and generate solid leads.”
Nick Berents, Director of Marketing NewRiver Inc.
“McCoin & Smith Communications has great instincts, timing, and ideas. Not only were they able to articulate a complicated financial technology and capture the attention of the books that count but thanks to their efforts and spot on results, a previously unreachable
prospect actually called us which resulted in a highly lucrative multi-million dollar sale.”
Dan Power, President, Hub Solution Designs
“Small to mid-size Master Data Management (MDM) companies need the help of a good Public Relations agency to develop name recognition and break through the clutter in a fast growing and noisy market space. McCoin & Smith Communications is a talented
PR firm that specifically targets the Data and Analytics spaces, and they are pros at providing the strategic media guidance that enables their clients to gain meaningful press coverage.”
