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.

- Amanda Hinton, International Asset Systems

"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."

"MediaFirst helped raise the awareness of our company to compete with companies that are much bigger. They are a professional group and work very hard to generate publicity for us.  I would add that MediaFirst has been very creative in developing new ways of generating publicity (e.g., issue-based press releases) for Optiant."
