Quality Is Conformance To Expectations
Our clients typically want to reach audiences of prospects, customers, prospective and current employees, analysts, industry associations, alliance partners, and sources of funding or buyout (exit). We promote firms to consumer audiences, especially when there is a technology angle. Broadly, we cover telecommunications, the Internet, information technology (IT), and supply chain; whether equipment, software, or services.
The technology focus means that clients expect us to have or develop a clear understanding of their business, markets, and competitive landscape. We understand our clients' customers in order to write in words that resonate with the target audience.
MediaFirst's flexibility supports dedicated, effective professionals. We believe that careers are more than just jobs.

The business culture reflects our effort to best balance the needs of the client with those of employees or contractors, within a unique, virtual company model. Meeting client demands is expected, but considerable personal or family flexibility may be available.
