At the end of our first year with MediaFirst, we have won awards, had extensive coverage in a variety of industry and national journals, increased our social media presence, and been involved in many interviews and byline articles. We have never been in the spotlight as much as we are now with Becky leading our PR efforts.
"If you say interesting stuff on twitter, people will follow you there. I think Jim Caruso, from MediaFirst, does this well. He’s been at every single technology event I’ve ever attended in Atlanta for the last 10 years. He knows what’s going on. He’s a technology geek at heart... And he’s on twitter, tweeting about local startups, global technology news, and of course, his own clients. I follow him on twitter."
