From smart home technology to wireless speakers, phones, headphones, virtual reality and even pet tracking and video tools, the consumer tech market is as varied as it is vast. There’s a device for every part of our lives. What comes with this myriad of innovation is the competition for the consumers’ spend. How does one brand standout and sustain momentum post launch? How does it even launch effectively from the start?

As anyone who works in PR knows, the concept of time can be a tricky one. Thanks to lengthy client planning cycles, print editorial deadlines that are determined months in advance, and the constant impulse to look ahead at what’s next, it can frequently feel like we’re working in the future.
