MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Independent b2b marketing, public relations and web presence optimization (WPO) firm KC Associates (KCA; kc-associates.com) announced today that it appears for the ninth consecutive year on The Business Journal‘s annual list of the top 25 Twin Cities public relations firms. It’s ranked No. 20, compared with its No. 23 position on last year's list. The rankings are based on the number of people providing public relations services as well as total billings from PR services.
“So many agencies are looking to lock-in healthy retainers to support their tiered structure and overhead,” said KCA principal Kirsten Chapman. “We don’t believe in retainers. We don’t have overhead. And we don’t have inexperienced people. Everyone in the group has at least 10 years of experience and gets to the heart of delivering results quickly and efficiently and they’re quite creative, so they find media opportunities and that others simply miss.” Chapman credits these things for high referral rates and KCA’s reputation for delivering great results at a reasonable price.
KCA’s experienced team of PR, marketing and web presence optimization (WPO) consultants offers clients an array of integrated services — including strategy, online marketing, public relations, web presence optimization, content marketing, website design and SEO, and content development. Unlike conventional agencies, KCA is a virtual organization, providing top talent and results without the overhead costs and retainers associated with traditional PR, marketing and optimization firms.
