PR Works is one of the breakthrough finds that have improved our organization and our messaging.

'Working with PR Works is like working with family.'

I’ve had the pleasure to work with PR Works primarily as a scientific and/or research panelist. Their journalists are very professional and always do a great job putting you at ease prior to each interview session. In my new role as principal investigator and owner of a contract research company, PR Works assisted us in developing the SPRG logo. They took considerable time to understand our company to ensure the logo “fit” our company. It is remarkable how often clients compliment us on our logo. Working with PR Works is like working with family.

'PR Works helped us forge the concepts, clear the clutter and turn our messages...'

PR Works was my public relations agency for more than 11 years, from 1999 through 2011. They helped us at Schering-Plough (later, Intervet/Schering-Plough and Merck) to tell our story about coccidiosis control in poultry. Actually, they did way more than that. Through a dynamic interaction with our team, PR Works helped us forge the concepts, clear the clutter and turn our messages into crisp, clear, compelling stories that impacted the industry.

The best I can say about PR Works is that more than once I heard from the sales team that a certain news story or testimonial they had written was a decisive factor in convincing another customer to try our products. A public relations agency with results that can actually be measured in dollars and cents. Now, that's something one can't find every day.

'There are few as creative and talented. I highly recommend PR Works.'

PR Works' enthusiasm for their client's programs is contagious and matched with their creativity, versatility, and talent for developing successful communication strategies for all aspects of a good public relations campaign. When they were called on to develop a public relations campaign beyond agriculture into the global energy sectors, the execution of this program successfully obtained a front page, above-the-fold, placement in the Wall Street Journal. I have worked around the globe for all my career amongst many stakeholders and multiple industry sectors, and there are few as creative and talented. I highly recommend PR Works.

'What I liked most about PR Works is their proactive approach...'

I have worked together with PR Works for almost two years and, I must say, it was a relief to finally work with people who understand the poultry/livestock and animal health market, which is quite rare among communication agencies. What I liked most about PR Works is their proactive approach in suggesting and implementing concepts, messages and creative ideas. I have experienced that, with PR Works, you will get a maximum of high quality communication output with a minimum amount of input or guidance. I experienced a level of seamless teamwork, which is very difficult to accomplish nowadays. It often felt as if they were ‘part of our team without being part of our team.’ I would highly recommend their services.

'We were able to educate the market about our products' benefits.'

The professionals at PR Works helped us develop and deliver our marketing and technical messages — not only to our customers and prospects, but also to our own people. With their PR, editorial and technical expertise, we were able to educate the market about our products’ benefits and effectively tell our story to the world. The collective effort between PR Works and our marketing, sales and technical service teams allowed us to increase global market share for a key product range from less than 1% to 10%. I highly recommend this agency.

'PR Works gets the maximum spin for any event or story.'

What I like best about PR Works is that they really know and understand agribusiness and the animal health market. Most of PR Works' competitors are often young upstarts, who are quickly in and out of agribusiness PR as a passing career path.

PR Works, on the other hand, offers industry veterans that are networked into all key editors. Joe and his team dependably get feature stories and releases placed in the major media.

Their stories are also crisp and concise, using the latest industry "buzz words" and hitting the "top buttons." They're also balanced and accurate. PR Works gets the maximum spin for any event or story.

And most importantly, they're not afraid to tell the client when a story isn't newsworthy.

'A real gift for coming up with interesting angles'

PR Works is a unique agency with extremely good knowledge of animal health and agriculture, along with some very creative ideas and plans to promote products and a company.

They have a real gift for coming up with interesting angles or positioning ideas for products that are well received by the target audience. They understand the business and they're a pleasure to work with. True professionals.

'I knew from the start they were something special.'

I've worked with PR Works in three different organizations. The first time, PR Works was already part of my company's marketing team — and I knew from the start they were something special. In the second and third times, I made it a point to bring in PR Works to effectively communicate our messages.

Why PR Works? Because they ask tough questions, they challenge the thought processes and they stand up for what they feel is in their client's best interests.

In addition, PR Works brings knowledge of our industry and have excellent writing and communications skills. They have the ability to take a technical subject and make it understandable for all audiences, from producers to PhDs.

'This sensible mixture of science and sell is hard to find.'

PR works has a long history in agriculture, so they know the issues and understand the fine details of food animal production. You don't have to go through lengthy explanations about basic concepts to get them up to speed. They actually save marketers and technical service reps time.

I've also been impressed with the experience and relationships PR Works has with the press. They know how and where to place stories for maximum impact, saving money and effort.

PR Works not only has great copy writing but also great technical writing. This sensible mixture of science and sell is hard to find. Your product is noticed, but also perceived with integrity, thereby enhancing your image as a supplier.

PR Works is also proactive. They take the initiative on projects and go above the call of duty to make sure the project meets their own high quality standards, thereby enhancing our image as a supplier.

'I would recommend PR Works in a heartbeat.'

Public relations is much more than writing press releases and contacting editors. You have to go about it professionally and effectively, balancing the client's need for publicity with the media's need for real news.

PR Works does just that. They listen. They comb through and understand your research data. They ask a lot of questions that make you think and help fine tune your positioning. They interview independent specialists to get additional perspective.

In the end, they deliver newsy, credible, compelling, well-written news releases and features that get results. They're also good at working with editors behind the scenes and pitching story ideas. I've also been very impressed by their graphic design capabilities.

I would recommend PR Works in a heartbeat.
