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 $5m 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, read by >1 million people)
* We’re an open company: talking about an “almost acquisition“, “5 years from the inside“, “why we took funding“, “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.
