Our Roots

Founded in a Palo Alto, California garage, Hoffman Marketing Communications, Inc. has been based in Silicon Valley for its entire 35-year history. Its founder and president, Steve Hoffman, has two degrees from Stanford University. He has called the valley home for nearly four decades. Hoffman client work spans the emergence of the internet, personal computing, mobile technology, and social media. Today, we deliver content for our clients on cybersecurity, cloud computing, networking, regulatory compliance, data storage and management, mobility, enterprise software, and much more.

Hoffman Today

Our first client, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) of Palo Alto remains a client today. We have written for other leaders of Silicon Valley: Hewlett-Packard, NetApp, Symantec, Adobe, SAP, Dolby, Cisco, and many others. We have served over 100 enterprises of all sizes, across the country and around the world. Our writers average 20 years of experience in high-tech writing, content marketing, and marketing communications.

Innovation in Content Marketing

Silicon Valley’s spirit of innovation is manifest in our content marketing. We were writing white papers before most Fortune 500 companies had even heard of them. We continue that innovation today. For example, Hoffman was one of the first agencies to offer interactive brochures with embedded video that run on any device, without plug-ins, apps, readers, or viewers.

Environmental Responsibility

Our base in Silicon Valley is about more than just technology. It’s also about environmental responsibility. Hoffman is a green company. Our national network of hyperconnected senior writers and consultants work full time from their homes in major metropolitan areas. This eliminates commuting and reduces oil consumption and pollutant emissions.

What does it all mean for you? Our structure, practices, and corporate culture enable us to develop effective marketing communications for your organization at affordable prices.
