For the past five years, we have grown our online backup service through word-of-mouth and the kindling that helps fuel it: PR, social media, events, and affiliate marketing. We have worked on these activities ourselves on a very lean budget and have built a bootstrapped and profitable company. But, last month we raised $5 million to grow even faster.
Now, we are looking for someone fantastic to help us blow this up. Is that you?
Why is this a fantastic opportunity for a PR expert?
- Online backup is a “feel good” product—we help people every day.
- Our customers love the product.
- We have some fantastic stories (e.g. Storage Pod blog post, which was read by >1 million people).
- We’re an open company, talking about an “almost acquisition,” “five years from the inside,” “why we took funding,” and “explicit datacenter needs.”
We’re open to hiring a full-time in-house person, a part-time consultant, or an agency. To apply, if you are not yet a customer please install the free trial of our online backup service (since, obviously you should know what we’re doing) and then fill out this form. While there are a number of questions here, if you keep your answers concise, I hope this will not be too time consuming.
I will absolutely read every response and am very much looking forward to finding someone amazing to help us for years to come.
UPDATE: Thanks for your interest! We’ve now found a spectacular partner to help us with this.
