We are very proud of the myriad public relations awards we’ve received, but if we’re blushing it’s because we believe the reward is in the doing, not in the getting. When we agree to take on a new client it’s because we have the skills and the bandwidth to go “all in.” Our clients appreciate that we do nothing half-way, and it’s what we expect of our entire staff.

Fluid, Inc.

Matter is an extension of our in-house team; they’re a true PR partner. They understand our unique business and they’re ingrained in the ecommerce industry. From the first day we started working with our Matter team, their counsel has been thoughtful and insightful, and our communications have been seamless. Their resourcefulness and experience is refreshing, and I’m comforted to know that they’re working professionally on our behalf, regardless of whether they’re talking to the media or interacting with our spokespeople, partners, or customers.

– Stephanie Aldrete, Director of Marketing

Unified Color Technologies

Good PR is more than just issuing press releases. It’s about media relationships and access that an agency can provide its clients. This is even more valuable when the client is not yet a household name or Fortune 500 company. The Matter team has decades-long, established relationships with the key media and influencers in my product category. They are always able to get my products placed at the highest level guaranteeing the most effective product launches. Between new product announcements they have been instrumental in helping us craft and execute a solid media strategy that helps us stay ‘in-the-news’ and strengthen our brand awareness.

– John Omvik, V.P. Marketing
