Gen-X PR Agency Gives It Away Local Nonprofit Orgs

Share Article

A Raleigh-based PR agency is bursting at the seams with creative ideas to make the truth work for worthy nonprofit orgs in the Triangle area. The dot-com agency is offering fee publicity campaigns to 3 non-profit orgs in 2005. The only stipulations are that the nonprofit must be located within the general Raleigh or RTP area in North Carolina and must be focused either on helping the area homeless, local education, or the local arts scene. The 3 winning local nonprofits are to be selected in January of 2005.

Mark Brimm, a freelance writer and founder of the dot-com PR agency,, has something rustling under his agency's curtain. With creative ideas and skills to make magic out of thin air, the time has finally come for his agency to put its resources where its mouth is. Says Brimm, "We want to provide opportunities for deserving local non-profits to make a dent in the publicity arena this year." The campaign, designed to raise awareness for the dot-com PR agency,, is also an attempt to enrich relations with the surrounding community. "We can do two useful things during this holiday season,' say Brimm, "promote our agency, and promote three deserving non-profit orgs in our community who need publicity in 2005. Why not?" started out from a laptop, and rapidly grew to serve clients nationally and abroad. “The great thing about the Internet is that it has become an equalizer on the basis of sheer merit. This is the age of the self-made agency who makes it on pure experience and talent. In the 00's, above and far beyond the IPO I think will be the emergence of the talented, self-made dot-com agency. That’s what really is. Generation X is known for cultural authenticity envy, better than anything else. I think Generation X has not fully made its full, positive impact on the culture just yet, and I think we're going to see some surprises out of our ranks. The Internet may be a baby-boomer innovation, but the Internet is truly a Gen-X medium, and it is the ultimate creative medium in which to create and launch ambitious projects. There is also a little bit of a quirky sort of intelligence and originality in the Gen X constitution, I think, and now that the baby-boomers are beginning to step down, we already understand how things really get done --not by sheer numbers or political idealism, but through pivotal, informed application of influence at the right place and time,” stated Brimm, now 34.

The agency will be celebrating it's first year since the initial launch of the web site on December 18th, which is also the founder's birthday. Concerning the company's outlook, Brimm states, "It's really become a personal thing for me. I want to see something good come out of everything I do, so I've begun to make everything personal, because I want to try to make everything in my life matter --in my writing and in the way I forge my career. Everything worthwhile requires effort and a clear head devoid of illusions. That's how I see this agency's projects: undertaken with integrity, but with a striving for clarity and the right approach." has recently performed promotional and creative services for such dot-com companies as, Guardent, Inc. (, recently purchased by Verisign, Inc.), 2020:Marketing Communications, LLC ( and, and Active Capital Solutions, Inc. (, to name just a few.
