Tri-County Public Relations Resource Fills a Niche no Longer Covered by Print Media
The South Florida Public Relations Network (SFPRN) continues to grow from 200 in 2006 to 730 members in 2010 and now, over 1,700 recipients of the PR Daily Digest in 2012. “The database is over 3,700 people from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County,” says Founder and Owner Linda Hamburger. “Not everyone receives the Daily Digest but many are recipients of updates and event invites.”
"SFPRN attracts interest because of its unique niche in providing local industry focused news,” said Hamburger. “What used to be found in the newspaper as weekly columns is no longer available. It was important to me to preserve this type of industry round-up. SFPRN is an umbrella, providing a one-stop-shop South Florida-focused resource of PR jobs boards, groups, resources and news.”
“I try to stay aware of new groups and organizations forming. I am currently involved with The South Florida Wordpress Meetup Group; New Tech Community in Boca Raton, and the Miami Social Media Club. I expect we’ll see more of these groups take shape over the next couple of years. I expect that they may soon provide accreditation similar to PRSA, Women in Communications Association, and others.”
Hamburger also credits volunteers and sponsors for its continued growing popularity. She says Naples-based publicist Pete Cento frequently contributes and event coordinators always lend a hand. In return, they have added to their resumes which Hamburger says resulted in new employment for a few.
