Marketing & Publicity are so Good Together
Forge is a new San Francisco digital marketing agency. With one core retainer, we achieve excellent results for our clients. But we can do it all!
At Forge, we center everything around three core services: PR and playlisting, Instagram growth and management, and Influencer and Sponsorship campaign management. These three together form our number one service: The Becoming Well-Known monthly retainer. This is all about leveraging fame, circa 2020, into sales, streams, views, web traffic, and of course true awareness.
At our bay area digital marketing agency, we are happy to work with any small business or creative. However, we center around music and film (entertainment), eCommerce, and cannabis. We do have experience everywhere, so if you’re another small business or entertainment brand our San Francisco digital marketing agency can take you on!
The PR and playlisting service consists of submitting, pitching, and outreach. It can be leveraged for truly anyone. There is a media home for every entrepreneur, genre, entertainment brand out there.
But instead of talking about how it works, I want to talk about how I know it works. I’ve seen the results. In one month, for example, a completely new and unheard artist could gain 1,000 streams, a 50% increase in website traffic, insane amounts of video views. In two months, it could compound to thousands and thousands of streams, countless video views, and new fans churning through your website daily. It takes time, and we work hard, but it pays off. And the payoff can be bigger for more established musicians.
Instagram growth is a classic. We do it right, with classic techniques and an extra pinch of strategy, tried and true, to make sure the right people are following you. Instagram growth or management can lead to web traffic, sales, leads, streams, whatever you need. It takes time, but it’s worth it. Even as an entertainment brand, you can garner viewers for your movies and so much more. eCommerce will see a spike in leads to retarget, if not sales.
Influencer and sponsorship campaign management means we sculpt the campaign from a marble block. We plan who the influencers/sponsors are, what they’ll say, visual direction for their content, and more. Influencer campaigns lead to increased sales or streams, increased buzz and awareness, and the right followers and fans. It works for an entertainment brand (in this case a film company) just as it works for fashion. We can handle sending influencers to your film premier, or just have them review your film. Nothing is so powerful.
Altogether, these three work to grow a brand, be that a musicians’ brand, a cannabis brand, an entertainment brand, or an eCommerce brand--and more. What do I mean by growing a brand? I mean results you can measure. I mean results that matter.
We also offer a deluxe retainer including all services mentioned with the full-fledged Instagram management upgrade, other social campaigns, ad campaigns of all digital kinds, email, project management, all kinds of copy, branding design at the onset, and whatever we can dream up together.

WHAT IS FORGE? WHO IS VINCE?
Forge is the marriage of marketing and PR, primed and ready for this decade. It’s a new bay area digital marketing agency with one purpose in mind: get you known. While Vince (me), the owner, still handles most things himself, he is building his network of freelancers and can offer everything from album artwork to WordPress web design. While these are not his primary offerings, he’s happy to accommodate with his talented freelancers. Their portfolios are available upon request.
Vince believes in workers building each other up. And this speaks to his progressive values. Vince never lets a Pride month go by without donating a percentage of his earnings to queer causes. When George Floyd was killed, Vince offered pro bono work to black creatives and entrepreneurs, believing access to entrepreneurship and music careers should be a great equalizer. He knows from his own experience that the ability to dive into freelancing and entrepreneurship is determined by privilege. We’re a bay area digital marketing agency in our humanitarian politics as well as our skilled execution.
Instacollective has been managing my Instagram account (@themommycomplex) for several months now, and it's been an awesome experience. Vince's work is excellent—I'm regularly impressed by his quality of content creation and curation, as well as his success around community building.
Because of his efforts, Vince of Instacollective grew my Instagram community to more than 1,000 followers BEFORE our products were available for purchase. These are real followers, all achieved organically without any advertising. This is especially impressive when you consider that mommy complex is a CBD brand, so effective and compliant social media is very tricky.
Vince’s content is engaging, unique and effective, and he’s a pro when it comes to working with influencers and other Instagram communities to take the mommy complex brand to the next level. Vince and the Instacollective team is responsive, accommodating, creative and very easy to work with. If you need Instagram strategy and support, do yourself a favor and reach out to Vince. You’ll be happy you did.
The support coming from Vince [the owner] at all times has been more help in this process than I thought it would be. This guy has never not been able to make something happen and has always been enthusiastic and positive of all my thoughts and ideas. Being able to rely on someone to help manage and grow my social media allowed me to put all my focus into my craft. I'm thankful for how well we work together and get each other's brains going. Thank you for being someone I can trust and count on.
