New PR Agency SagaSocial offers communications and PR services for game and technology companies
Helsinki, Finland, Oct 30, 2013 – SagaSocial, a new PR agency offering services to game and technology companies, was launched in Helsinki in October 2013. Merja Turpeinen, the Founder and CEO of the agency, has been working in several PR and communications positions for close to 10 years before founding her own company. Most recently, Turpeinen was the head of the PR & communications department of Sulake, the developer of the social game and online community Habbo Hotel.
“Considering the recent great news on the Finnish game industry, it’s clear that the industry is booming and more success stories can be expected. SagaSocial was founded to convey the new success stories to the world,” Turpeinen explains.
“New game studios are founded in Finland all the time, but until now you’ve had to look for professional PR services with game industry experience from abroad. It’s great that these services are now available also in Finland. Clear communications and international visibility are vital to both companies and entrepreneurs, as well as to the success of games titles,” Tiina Zilliacus, Founder & CEO of well-being games developer Gajatri Studios says.
SagaSocial concentrates specifically on growing its game and technology company clients’ international visibility. In this, SagaSocial makes use of its international technology and game journalist contacts and a global network of PR agencies focused on the industry.
“Marketing has become an increasingly significant function to game studios, but most of the studios don’t have the expertise needed on marketing and communications. There is a clear demand for experienced professionals, who can offer these services and are familiar with the industry,” says Koopee Hiltunen, the Director of Neogames, a Finnish game industry organization.
In November 2013, SagaSocial will publish its first client cases and launch a media platform to serve its clients at www.sagasocial.com.
