PerkettPR should be considered a â€śSavviest in Social Mediaâ€ť winner of the Home-Based 100 Competition because we have not only delivered compelling social media campaigns for clients worldwide for the past several years, but we are also proud to be recognized as one firm that truly â€śgetsâ€ť social media â€“ our campaigns and efforts have been recognized by reporters, bloggers and industry influencers alike. Founder and President, Christine Perkett has been featured in numerous books and stories about social media for business, can often be found at industry conferences or online sharing her opinions on how â€“ and why - the PR industry can and should embrace social media. PerkettPR and Christine Perkett were some of the first to join the Twitter community, which has grown leaps and bounds since 2007. Weâ€™ve spent years helping clients to combine traditional PR â€“ events, tradeshows, media, customer testimonies, etc. â€“ with social media such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Ning, Whrrl, online communities and more.
We are proud of our consistent recognition as one of a handful of PR firms that are leading PR 2.0 - successfully merging social marketing and PR - including our rank as finalists for "Best Tech PR" by the TechCrunch Crunchies, one of the 'Top 25 Authorities Moving PR Forward' in a recent industry study, recognition as a firm led by one of the most social media-savvy CEOs (in BusinessWeek's Social Media Report, two years in a row: http://bit.ly/peioG) and as social-media gurus (Women's Entrepreneur: http://bit.ly/76UIKe).
