Idea Grove has been named a winner in the PR Agency of the Year category of the Best in Biz Awards, which honors companies, teams, executives and products for their business successes. These are the only independent business awards judged by news media members and industry analysts. Companies based or operating in the U.S. and Canada are eligible for consideration.
Idea Grove was recognized at the Bronze level on the strength of its growth in clients, revenues, and staff, as well as results achieved for clients. Company President Scott Baradell’s innovative approach puts public relations at the center of an integrated PR and marketing platform focused on helping B2B technology companies reach media and buyers. This approach integrates public relations, content creation, social media marketing, search marketing, web design and conversion rate optimization.
On the strength of this approach, Idea Grove has emerged as one of the fastest-growing public relations and marketing firms in the southwest United States. The agency routinely receives prospect inquiries based on client testimonials and referrals, as well for awards received.
Idea Grove was named Media Relations Team of the Year by the Golden Bridge Awards and won a Marketer of the Year Award from the local chapter of the American Marketing Association for a campaign undertaken on behalf of its client ShopSavvy. That campaign also won the agency a Pegasus Award for best Marketing Communications Program from the Dallas chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.
Idea Grove’s blog, Media Orchard, has been ranked among the top 3,000 blogs in the world and in the top 10 PR blogs, according to Technorati. Media Orchard has been cited as a resource by a range of websites and bloggers, including Gawker, Copyblogger, Romenesko, Adrants, Brian Solis and Marketing Profs. In September, a Media Orchard post secured Idea Grove a Silver-level Content Marketing Award from the Content Marketing Institute.
