ICCO 2015 Barometer Pulse Check™

Budgets are always a hot topic at this time of year and according to the International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) Industry Barometer Pulse Check™ agencies and clients have been having positive discussions when it comes to PR budgets for 2015. The ICCO has predicted strong growth in the global PR industry based on its key findings which revealed that 40% of consultancy respondents describe budget discussions as ‘generally positive’ and 50% said that the industry would grow by at least 10% over the next year.

An equal number of respondents also said that they had refreshed their business model over the last year and that it was making ‘a real difference’. This is something we as a business can strongly relate to. Having been founded in 1996 and originally very much focused on PR and media relations, over the years we have expanded our offering of services to ensure we meet our clients needs in this rapidly evolving market. We now pride ourselves on offering integrated sales and marketing solutions to help our clients achieve success.
