A reader emailed us that the Denver Business Journal has dropped its annual ranking of Denver PR agencies because it no longer trusts the numbers provided by the agencies and is tired of hearing complaints from those challenging other agencies’ numbers. Representatives from PRSA and several of the larger agencies in town are reportedly going to meet Thursday to discuss how they can change DBJ Publisher Neil Westergaard’s mind.
One thought on “Has the DBJ Dropped its Rankings of Denver PR Agencies?”
Update: The listing was not done in 2008 or 2009, but it looks like there will be a 2010 listing, thanks to a few PR agency leaders who have been working on this over the last year.
The bigger issue is that there is not a listing of PR firms in the Book of Lists.
PRSA Colorado offers an online Find a PR Professional Directory — it is super easy and very inexpensive to join. Check it out in the “Making Connections” box on http://www.prsacolorado.org.
When an organization or company contacts PRSA Colorado looking for PR firm resources, we do not promote one firm over another. Rather, we send each lead to the Find a PR Professional online directory. So if your firm doesn’t subscribe, then your firm misses the referral.
Hopefully, the DBJ list returns in 2010.
