"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."
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.”
Charles Roe, Digital Content Manager, DATAVERSITY®
“We’ve been working with McCoin & Smith Communications for many years now and have built a very positive and ever-expanding business relationship with them. As a Data Management education company, we rely on working with some of the top data professionals in the industry to develop content with, whether that be articles, blog contributions, case studies, and others. Chris and Rick have helped us to build solid connections with many such professionals, create compelling narratives around the principal topics in the industry today, and both of them are so wonderful to work with. Their knowledge and dedication to their work comes through in everything they do. I look forward to even more opportunities with them in the future.”
As a tech CMO having worked with a number of PR firms over the years, I can tell you that Chris and Rick are true professionals. They are highly experienced, know their craft, and do what they say they are going to do. Many firms talk about working as an "extension of your team" but that's truly been the case here, and they've accomplished everything we've tried to tackle together. Most impressively, they've acquired a remarkable understanding of supply chain technology, our solutions and value prop which I think is what's made them so successful in placing our content and messaging across our targeted channels. Plus, it's made our work together immensely efficient. I highly recommend M&S.
