PRNewser Poll Results: Publicity is Good for PR Firms

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote about a Dow Jones analysis of which PR firms in the U.S. and U.K. got the most traditional media coverage in 2010.  This post captured quite a bit of attention, some of it asking the question of whether this is a good or bad thing for a PR firm.

We brought the question to you in last week’s PRNewser poll and nearly two-thirds of respondents (about 64.3 percent) said this is a positive thing. About 21.4 percent say it’s a negative thing and about 14.3 percent said it doesn’t matter.

We’ve heard a number of times from publicists that PR firms don’t have time to promote themselves because they’re busy promoting their clients. It would be great to hear more about the pros and cons, so please feel free to take to the comments with additional thoughts.
