Over the course of our research we have found that many businesses benefit greatly from outsourcing a large portion of their public efforts to a dedicated agency. PR agencies are often more experienced than either hiring a PR professional internally or attempting to build a PR department internally.
The costs commonly associated with handling PR internally are often cost prohibitive and thus it may be easier and more cost effective to hire a PR firm. PR firms are often well versed in a number of activities and strategies which means being able to accomplish more rather than having to rely upon the knowledge and experience of internal professionals. This leads to more effective PR campaigns and more creative solutions.
The decision to outsource public relations efforts is often fueled by internal struggles or an increasingly important requirement that seems to be unable to be resolved internally. In addition, many find a number of benefits associated with outsourcing PR strategies to a PR firm. Among these benefits, many larger companies have found it to be economically advantageous in addition to being able to focus on the tasks that the company has internal specialization for.
Additionally, some companies may have internal resources capable of handling one type of PR task while lacking the specialization required for another. As a result, some companies opt to outsource part of the PR strategy.
It is becoming increasingly important for companies to maintain a positive brand image online. Reputation management is becoming a requirement for any business which has communications with the public. As a result, many companies opt to dedicate resources towards managing a positive reputation among major search engines and social media.
While some companies may opt to handle reputation management matters in-house, a large portion of companies hire online marketing and PR firms in order to create and maintain a positive brand image in major search engines. This is due to the specialized nature of the task and an increased success rate from professionals which specialize in online reputation management.

We receive opinions from clients of both PR firms featured in our rankings and those which are eligible, but have not been selected for the rankings.
Our analysis has identified that the largest portion of positive feedback comes from the pool of recommended vendors when compared to positive feedback from clients of PR firms in the unranked pool. We also performed an analysis of reviews found on other websites and social media and found the largest positivity among those which are featured as recommended PR firms within our rankings.
