REDWOOD CITY, CA: Eastwick Communications has landed four new
clients in recent weeks, adding between dollars 1.2 and 1.5 million in
annual fee revenue to agency coffers.
The new accounts, all Internet start-ups that have never worked with a
PR agency, include Hotlinks, an online search community; Keynote, which
provides Internet performance measurement and diagnostic services;
ReleaseNow.com, a supplier of outsourced e-commerce solutions for
software publishers; and ONElist, an online retailer and e-mail
According to Eastwick principal Barbara Bates, all of the new business
can be attributed to referrals from industry insiders rather than
participation in formal RFPs.
’There is a pretty loyal following of ’friends of Eastwick’ in the VC
community and in the Valley,’ said Bates. She noted that Keynote and
ReleaseNow.com were referred to Eastwick by VC firm CMGI.
Based in Redwood City, Eastwick is one of the few independent PR firms
in the Silicon Valley top 10. Reporting dollars 4.7 million in revenue
for 1998, the agency experienced a 62% growth in 1997, and should
surpass dollars 7 million in 1999, according to Bates.
Founded in 1992, Eastwick has nearly 30 employees. Other clients include
Hewlett Packard, Adobe Systems and Ramp Networks.
