"Our partnership with Influence & Co started with a need to become thought leaders in the technology industry. We were working on various strategies in the Public Relations space, but nothing really felt right until we met the Influence & Co team."

our partnership and Problems to solve

Rocksauce Studios partnered with us to create thought leadership content that would help establish the company as an industry leader in building mobile experiences for brands and position its CEO and CRO as experts in the worlds of tech, creative development, user experience, and mobile. It would also present these leaders as experts in effectively running an app development company and managing its employees.

Its secondary focus was to showcase its knowledge on rapidly growing technology, which is creating more and more possibilities for product offerings. These factors create confusion for its audience of appreneurs and tech enthusiasts, who need guidance on what the various platforms capabilities are and how and why they should use them for diverse applications.

Highlight Content






In order to achieve these goals, we focused on creating three guest-contributed articles per month, targeting key publications that Rocksauce Studios audience of entrepreneurs, appreneurs, startups, and small business leaders read. The cadence of three articles a month helped establish consistency in the brand’s content, emphasizing trends and predictions within the industry, including what it takes to build amazing mobile experiences for brands. It also showcased Rocksauce StudiosCEO’s and CROs abilities to educate others on building a positive company culture and offering incredible customer service.


Through our partnership, Rocksauce Studioshas published more than 90 pieces of content across 42 publications (including VentureBeat, UX Magazine, The Next Web, Mashable, and Entrepreneur), earning more than 37,000 shares and reaching an audience of more than 63 million readers on social platforms.
