An Austin PR Firm

for Austin’s Best B2B Tech Companies

Ketner Group has helped high-growth B2B technology providers tell their most important stories and build brand equity for nearly 30 years.

Relying on local and national relationships and industry expertise honed over three decades, Ketner Group is here to celebrate your competitive advantages, keep you top of mind among the influencers and audience you care about most, and help you build a public image you can be proud of.

As Austin cements its place as a global hub of innovation and creativity, you deserve an agency partner that was born here and is now one of the most trusted B2B technology firms in the country.

The Ketner Group Advantage

We know B2B tech. And we know Austin.

With deep roots in retail technology, blossoming expertise in hospitality tech and advertising tech, and a leadership team that cut its teeth serving a host of Fortune 500 brands, we have the know-how to get the results you want.

We’ve worked with startups on their way to acquisitions and with foreign companies successfully navigating U.S. market entry. We have launched countless products, helped craft bulletproof corporate identities, increased client share of voice, driven spikes in web traffic, secured prominent speaking gigs, and so much more.

But that's not why you should work with us.

It’s not lip service for us when we say we’re an extension of our client teams. We build partnerships that last.

Every client has direct access to our executive team and our senior leadership is actively involved in daily account management and execution. Our teams are consistent, and once you meet your new partners, you can count on them staying for the long haul.

If you’re in Austin, we’ll meet for coffee as readily as we will to develop major campaigns. And even if you’re not in Austin, we’ll know your dog’s name, make it less stressful to stay home with sick kids, and only sometimes remind you how nice the weather is here in February.

PR and Marketing Services

We know every company is different.

That’s why we offer a robust suite of traditional and digital communications services that enable us to build the program that’s right for you.

Public Relations

We enjoy developing brand strategy and corporate messaging, training spokespeople, securing great media coverage and landing our clients in key analyst reports. When we work together, we will introduce you to our local Austin and broader national network. Your dedicated team will put you on stage at the right events and help your brand realize its full potential by identifying and capitalizing on the perfect mix of earned opportunities.

Content Marketing

Your audience isn’t just at events and reading the news, so we will also make sure your owned media is working as hard as you do. Our content marketing team is committed to turning your unique perspectives and customer stories into strategic campaigns that drive measurable impact on your business, in any market, every time – across all channels. From website audits to social media management and influencer engagement, e-book campaigns, and even paid content promotion, we’ve got you covered.

Strategy

We’re also here to help you figure out the best marketing strategy for your business goals, regardless of where our services fit into the picture. From help solidifying brand identity or messaging platforms to setting up a communications program or website plan, we can advise you on how to make the biggest impact and get the biggest bang for your buck.

Austin’s Domain: Who Says Shopping Has to Be Boring?

I’ll start with a confession: I don’t really like shopping, which is a surprising admission for someone who’s worked with enough retail technology companies to populate a small mall.
