State of the PR Industry

2009_07_sad.jpgLost in the talk about restaurants' troubles is the plight of their poor mouthpieces; one PR vet tells Eater NY how things have changed in the last year: "Nobody was willing to sign contracts at all anymore. It was verbal agreements only. PR fees dropped significantly. Clients expected major media results in 4 weeks. Checks bounced ... it’s very bleak at the moment. Yes, there are restaurant PR agencies out there who may be doing relatively well. However, the independent publicist like myself, like the small business owner, is suffering terribly." PR kids, are things a little better out here? Do share your thoughts in the comments; and restaurants, you can always send your news straight to us. [~ENY~]
