PRSourceCode is an online service for the public relations industry. Every year, they poll technology journalists, asking them “Who is your most favorite PR firm?”
Now, one would think that would be like asking Sarah Palin “Who is your favorite political reporter at The Washington Post?“, given the sometimes… shall we say… uneasy relationship between journalists and PR people.
Apparently, however, we’re not all bad in the eyes of the fourth estate. It appears that some of us PR folks actually want to serve our clients AND help journalists get timely information that is useful to their readership.
And so PRSourceCode has named the the top PR firms as viewed by tech reporters.
Baker Communications Group was a runner-up in the small agency category. That means we’re among the Top 10 small agencies nationwide. Since we didn’t know we were even in contention for anything, I guess that’s pretty good. Now that we know, maybe next year we’ll eat some of our own dog food and lobby all our technology reporter friends by plying them with beers and hot wings at trade shows. You know – the same way Hollywood studios do it for the Oscars.
So thanks to the reporters who gave us a nod and thanks to PRSourceCode for asking them.
Thanks also to our clients, who make it easy and fun to do good work, simply because they are great companies with cool technology and products.
And most important – thanks to our wives, husbands and mothers because, well, that’s what people say at awards shows.
