Bospar 5 Year Anniversary

We're built for the heavy lifting. Our team of journalists from social and traditional media, together with recognized marketing, influencer, financial, SEO and public affairs experts, collaborate to secure top-tier client placements, month after month. We get smart fast, build relationships, and launch PR campaigns, grounded in strategy and infused with creativity. And we don't stop. We're out there every day learning about what's trending and changing and newsjacking clients into the conversation whenever possible.

Virtual is a real advantage. Virtual from Day 1 with a national footprint means our team stands ready in every continental US time zone, easily reaching into Europe and Asia. No matter when news breaks, we have coverage – from ground zero in Silicon Valley to regional hotbeds like NYC and Chicago. Being 100% virtual also means we hand-pick the industry's brightest, regardless of where they live. Just one of the reasons Bospar continues to have the best staff retention in the industry.

Speed ahead. When it comes to getting known faster, accelerating adoption, and driving impact, Bospar breaks through with coverage and visibility to audiences around the world.
