Here’s what I know about Sally Ferguson and David Caras of Ferguson Caras:
They’re effective PR professionals who aren’t pushy. They know how to make life easy for stressed-out reporters and editors. I think that’s because they’ve walked in our shoes – they both have real-world journalism experience, which in my opinion still counts for something. They understand about deadlines, they know how to craft story ideas that aren’t just “a sell” but that have meaning and integrity – they believe in what they’re saying and they know how to get their message across.
They’re helpful and friendly and funny. They combine an old-fashioned work ethic with cutting-edge technology, which means they work hard for their clients and they work hard for the journalists – old media, new media, emerging media – who are out there spreading the word. Sally and David know how to build and nurture relationships, which means that at the end of the day you can trust them and depend on them and respect them.Irene Virag
