I help B2B tech companies speak clearly

Across 16 years, I’ve learned many facets of effective brand communications. How I and our group of experienced freelancers are most valuable to tech companies is when we can strategically develop a plan that informs all marketing and comms activities.

Startups and companies including The Stable’s Hyphen, LoyaltyLion, Omnisend, Daasity, Pack Digital, Nosto, and We Make Websites think of me as a sounding board or pulse-checker for marketing and advertising moves. They call us for:

  • Strategic narratives
  • Positioning and messaging
  • Go-to-Market Plans
  • Marketing audits
  • PR programs

Right before launching our B2B tech PR and comms consultancy, I served as Communications Director at SaaS ecommerce software company WebLinc, the parent company of ecommerce platforms Workarea and Orderbot. We “battled” Shopify, Magento (now Adobe), and Demandware (now SFCC).

I’ve been proud to appear in Forbes, The Washington Post, PR Week, Digiday, and USA Today, among other outlets.

I trusted John to represent our SaaS businesses for 3+ years and I’d do it again. I didn’t think someone with ecommerce knowledge and an understanding of how to work with media to repeatedly deliver results existed. John’s role went beyond communications and PR – he wrote site copy, eBooks, blog posts, plus he interviewed clients to develop co-marketing materials. Most importantly, he got our B2B tech company seen by retailers without handholding.

On day one of our relationship, I was interviewed and quoted in Digiday. Months later when we announced funding, John got us a feature story in TechCrunch. My phone blew up all day. Our sales team heard from two prospective customers within one hour of the story being live.

John is a combination PR professional and industry insider. He brings his experience, relationships and market insights to bear when working on behalf of a retail vendor or service provider. He approaches PR assignments as a partner in your business. He not only executes in a professional and thoughtful manner but brings new opportunities and ideas to the effort. I highly recommend John.

Unlike other B2B PR firms I've worked with, John gets it! He's proactive, honest, and has his finger on the pulse of relevant media, always pivoting when the direction and time are right. We saw our research and educational content appear in all the right places under his strategic guidance.

Since our engagement with John, our marketing efforts have been more intentional and focused, resulting in a more cohesive strategy.

“I would hire Forberger Communications again. They are a specialized, standout group in a sea of tech PR agency sameness. Since they only work with solution providers, they were quick to provide differentiators, messaging advice, and guided us on the timing of a big company announcement.”
