January 2017 until May 2021
Our goal was to reach business-to-business media as well as general-interest outlets with information about cloud technology as well as expert contributions about tax and accounting tricks. We aimed to address start-ups, self-employed and small businesses – all those who would benefit from simplified accounting. Additionally, we organized interviews and trend statements to position the CEO of Billomat Paul-Alexander Thies as an expert for FinTech topics as well as a for taxes.
There are many providers on the market of online accounting. Although Billomat started as one of the first cloud technologies in 2007, the company had become forgotten in the past few years. From 2016 until 2021, Paul-Alexander Thies, who previously worked for Rocket’s payleven and Travador, was the new CEO of Billomat. We wanted to share this new era and tackle the dusty image of accounting at the same time.
Through our collaboration, we want to establish Billomat as the first point of contact and expert on accounting, bookkeeping and tax topics for startups, companies and the self-employed in the DACH region. The PR work brings traffic and trust in particular. Together, we have been able to generate more than 930 publications in both high-reach B2C and B2B media and articles in WirtschaftsWoche, Handelsblatt, t3n and Handwerker Magazin, for example.
The expert positioning of Paul-Alexander Thies, the CEO of Billomat, was an essential part of our PR and brand storytelling strategy. As a result, Paul is now among the experts at Focus Online, among others. To date, 22 guest articles on the topics of taxes, accounting and finance have been published online by the medium.

But then we were really positively surprised by the mentality and commitment of our new contact persons. At Mashup Communications, you simply notice that each consultant brings great individual strengths to the table that enrich the collaboration.”
