Effective Communication for Digital Brands
Individual Professional Passionate


We ensure that digital brands and projects attain media attention.

We deliver results

Achieving and surpassing goals – that’s easiest with experienced professionals. Every project is overseen by a senior team, which not only comes up with great concepts but turns them into results.

We give everything

How do we get new business? Almost entirely via recommendations. To make sure that it stays that way, we apply all our expertise and connections to get the best possible result for every single client.

We work flexibly

Communication solutions off the rack? You won’t find those with us. We think that every assignment deserves an individual approach. Especially as the digital industry is prone to quickly shifting priorities. We remain flexible and adjust our course of action accordingly.

We challenge ourselves

Just do it? Sure, but we also constantly challenge ourselves: Is this really the best course of action? How can we optimize results? We are a true partner, on eye level with our clients so that together we can achieve the best possible results.


We are a team of experienced consultants and senior consultants who enjoy impactful communications and collaboration.

From our “pre-life” we know not only how agencies operate but businesses too. That enables us to understand the processes, interests, arguments and objectives of our clients.

Every assignment is carried out passionately and professionally by an individual senior team.

Main disciplines

Media Relations

Our core competence: We get businesses, brands, products and people into the media – print, TV, radio and digital channels. This is best done via storytelling, a deep understanding of media and the way it works, and good contacts to media representatives.

Influencer Relations

Experts, bloggers, social media stars also influence opinions about a business, product or service. We collaborate with them to design authentic campaigns that are suitable for both the influencer and the brand.

Speaker’s Bureau

Presentations at conferences are perfect for increasing attention and demonstrating expertise. We select relevant forums and place business representatives as speakers.

PR Stunts

We put the spotlight on brands in high-profile PR stunts that get talked about in both social and traditional media. How? Not as an end in itself, but with a clear return on investment as the goal.


Those who can tell exciting stories have a clear advantage. We create relevant, search engine optimized content for internal and external channels. By using free as well as paid forms of content distribution, we ensure a wide reach and a high number of leads.

Social Media

Communication is most effective when stories are synchronized across and tailored to different channels. HotDot adapts messages for social media, designs customized campaigns and manages all ongoing communications.


Our clients are major digital industry players as well as innovative start-ups.
