Forbes Ranks 919 Marketing as Top PR Firm

919 Earns Highest 5-Star Ranking Based on Client Surveys

919 Marketing is proud to be recognized as one of the nation’s top PR firms by ranking on Forbes’ prestigious 2021 inaugural list of America’s Best PR Agencies.  The company competed against thousands of national PR firms to earn this coveted honor.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista that surveyed more than 12 thousand experts and 20 thousand customers who nominated more than 5 thousand firms.  The list was narrowed down to the top 200 PR agencies. 919 Marketing received the highest five-star ranking.

“919 Marketing is thrilled and honored to rank among the best PR agencies in the country,” says CEO and founder David Chapman.  “We are proud of our growth and the growth of our brands that have selected 919 Marketing as their trusted PR partner.  We have earned this award because we provide a host of content marketing services along with PR and all our work is magnified and measured by 919 Insights, our proprietary data analytics platform.  Our reputation as a cutting edge, industry leader has attracted top talent to our team, helping us deliver game-changing results for our clients. “

The Forbes ranking comes during the unprecedented pandemic, when 919 Marketing had to navigate all clients through an uncertain, volatile, and noisy year. The company had to quickly pivot and become more like a consulting firm, rapidly developing internal and external crisis communication strategies as Covid-19 affected all clients, their customers, employees and pretty much every aspect of their business.

“We pride ourselves on being nimble and stepping up to lead our clients with clarity through a difficult and tumultuous time as evidenced by our 5-star ranking,” says Chapman. “Our clients trust us and their loyalty, continued business and accelerated growth- helped by our efforts-   is the best reward of all.”

919 Marketing services include franchise and cause marketing, social media marketing, strategic planning, brand strategy, franchise public relations, crisis communications, grand opening services, video and podcast production and more.
