FSB Associates has four full-time staff with offices in Carlsbad, California, Chicago, Illinois, and Clearwater, Florida. Our Founder and President is Fauzia Burke.

Our proprietary database of contacts with online media and the blogging community is one of our biggest assets and a big reason for our success. We have built our contact database through one-to-one contact with online editors and bloggers over the last 20+ years.

Throughout the campaign, we monitor keywords and data in real time so we can adjust our approach and take advantage of trends, conversations and opportunities as they happen.
