ContentNext Media, home to popular sites including paidContent.org, mocoNews.net, paidContent.co.uk and contentSutra.com, will end its relationship with agency Brainerd Communicators, according to the company’s founder, Rafat Ali.

A post this morning on digital media news site Business Insider highlighted a pitch from the agency, and said in a mocking manner, “This message is so important, in fact, that Rafat hired a PR agency to send it out…”

Reached for comment, Ali told PRNewser, “We’re not going to hire another agency anytime soon…easier to save costs in these lean times. If we had any good results from them, we would have thought of it, but when they didn’t, it is an easy decision.”

UPDATE: Brainerd Communicators Managing Director Michele Clarke contacted PRNewser to point out that the agency had secured a number of business press placements for ContentNext Media, including the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC and Fox Business. Clarke stated, “We have valued our relationship with ContentNext and continue to wish them much success.”
