Negative

Failed miserably

I had an extremely disappointing experience with Spark. After over 25 years in the industry, I can honestly say that I would not recommend this PR firm. After researching different PR firms, I settled upon this company based on the enthusiasm and passion they showed about our products. Please do your research before settling on Spark PR and avoid retaining them as your PR company. In our case, their claims to have extensive connections within the consumer tech press seemed completely inaccurate and untrue. After a couple of months of working with their team, the only thing they seemed to deliver was a press release. I was left with no choice but to terminate their contract early for lack of performance. It’s so frustrating to launch a product with almost no coverage. Their outreach consisted of cold emails to the wrong editors. When I tried to redirect them, they said all the right things, but did not perform. They did acknowledge on several occasions their failure and they tried to attempt to rectify it, but nothing resulted in change. We launched two of our flagship products with zero media mention on Day One of our release, forcing us to bring PR and outreach “in house”. This resulted in a wide array of media coverage through our own team’s effort.

Best part of the experience?

Empty Promises

Any suggestion or changes about the experience?

It would be nice for Spark to under promise and over deliver instead the other way around.
