A Very Different Place
Headquartered in Redondo Beach’s Riviera Village, the company is just two blocks from the beach, and in close proximity to Los Angeles and the flourishing entertainment industry.
Today clients include Cisco, which counts on the firm for special events at international trade shows; Corning, to promote its Fiber Optics advances; Ooyala, one of the world’s premier digital video playout companies, Amazon Studios, and others. Clients literally stretch from the UK to China. One of the newest clients is the LIKE video app, which is among the fastest growing video editing apps in the world because it’s so much fun and easily shareable.
The staff is a tight-knit, collaborative group where everyone knows and likes each other. A frequent comment is how friendly everyone is. They work hard as a cohesive team to help clients succeed and grow. The company fosters an environment where employees are endlessly curious and fascinated by innovation.
The agency’s longstanding personal relationships with reporters, editors, publishers and analysts benefit its clients. They treat editors as partners in the content generation business.
Clients want to know what they are buying. The agency tells them in its contract what they can expect; and then works to exceed its promised deliverables as measured in coverage capture reports and its own exclusive S.M.A.R.T. Report – SMART: Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timely – for tracking KPIs. No other PR agency does this.

Disruption. Challenges. Opportunities
Bob Gold & Associates is now one of the most reputable media agencies in the country, but it has had to overcome significant challenges along the way.
The reality of audience fragmentation means the days when one major national story could make an impact has long passed. Major media is struggling for advertisers and audiences. Whether it’s the Wall Street Journal or Los Angeles Times – papers are thinner, reporting staffs are smaller, and competition for their reporters’ attention is fiercer. And this is also true for TV, radio, digital, and trade publications.
Bob Gold & Associates believes it needs to think smarter and more creatively. Maybe the home for a story is best placed on LinkedIn instead of a trade publication. Maybe the news hook needs to be made sexier. And many times, a one-minute video can be more impactful than a 1,000-word article. The goal is to maximize recognition and ROI for clients, whether it’s through PR, marketing, advertising, web development, social media, or a mix of everything.
By constantly evolving and committing to always exceed client expectations, the company guarantees its campaigns will result in dramatic growth and deeper customer engagement for its clients.
