WASHINGTON, November 3, 2016 --- Clutch has released a report on leading public relations (PR) firms. The publication features US-based public relations agencies, each of which was evaluated based on their level of focus on PR and firsthand client feedback about their quality of service.

The top PR firms for 2016 are: Bateman Group, BIGfish Communications, Pinkston Group Inc, EMSI Public Relations, Marketing Maven, Jones Social & PR, TrizCom PR, Blanc and Otus, NewmanPR, Firecracker PR, Taylor & Co., MediaSource, Shelton Interactive, Sonata Venture Solutions, and JJR Marketing Inc.

Clutch analysts spoke to each company’s past and current clients to learn about their approach to crisis management, strategy development, and media exposure.  The quantitative aspect of the research process is the Clutch Leaders Matrix methodology, a long-standing algorithm that maps each firm’s focus on public relations against their proven ability to deliver quality results to clients.

“To have a solid PR strategy is a crucial element to any company’s success in their industry,” said Jenna Seter, business analyst at Clutch. “Strong PR agencies, like the ones featured in our report, have a really great opportunity to capitalize on the growing need for strategy development on all different media platforms.”
