About RecommendPR

Why

We built this super-simple tool for exploring reviews of PR firms, consultants and agents because we commonly saw startups in our YCombinator and StartX communities asking for recommendations on which PR firms to hire or whether they should do PR themselves.

We wanted to open up the conversation about measuring the effectiveness of PR objectively, whether that's founders being scrappy and doing it themselves, which has huge time costs, or paying a firm or agency, which can be a very pricy investment without knowing what you're getting.

How

We sent out a survey to startups we know, including ones from the Y Combinator and Startx communities. We welcome contributions from everyone in the startup community!
