By: Spritz  |  October 25, 2012  | 


The Spritz team rallied for an exciting night out at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Tuesday, October 23rd to cheer on the Golden Gate Warriors in their preseason finale against the Phoenix Suns. We invited friends and VIP guests to join us in a viewing suite to socialize, network and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and libations, as the Warriors proved dominance and spirit on the court. Warriors David Lee and Harrison Barnes blazed the trail to a 107- 92 victory with 16 points each, and the halftime show wowed fans with athletes making slam dunks while performing tricks on a trampoline. The evening was filled with laughter and great conversation, and was truly bonding experience for Spritz.

Introducing Innovation

By: Spritz  |  August 3, 2012  | 


Spritz began over a bottle of wine.

It was a Pinot Noir and the quietness of dusk had settled in the air. Raghu Shivaram and Beth Schnitzer were sitting across a table, heatedly discussing what they felt was wrong with the world of marketing: the obvious branding solutions that were not being implemented, PR that had gone awry, and social media outlets that were not being addressed as a valuable commodity of advertising.

That’s when the light bulb flickered and Spritz was born.

Named after Beth’s nickname in adolescence, Spritz embodies the daring gumption required in marketing and the creative initiative that makes or breaks a successful firm. Today, Spritz has grown into an intimate boutique agency and strives to introduce innovation to every business with which it partners.

With a growing number of distinctive clients, Spritz redefines the meaning of marketing in 2012. From the San Francisco’s legendary America’s Cup Sailing aboard USA 76 to Moreno’s Swarovski crystal-encrusted sparkling wine bottles, our clients and marketing results are top-tier.

We throw launch parties. We promote product placement for luxury merchandise. We generate success for our clients through mobile applications, web design, and strategic partnerships. We are Spritz, and after one meeting with us, you’ll be hooked on our contagious passion for working with local businesses.

At the end of the day, we know that words are simply words. Take a tour of our site and see for yourself examples of the marketing tools we’ve executed for any one of our diverse clientele. We know you’ll be back.
