The top tech and healthcare PR firm, Macias PR, has released its 4th quarter report that details the number of media placements the firm secured for its clients from September to December 2016.
Macias PR secured a record number of TV placements for its clients in the 4th quarter – a total of 17 TV segments in seven different TV markets. Those TV segments featured clients from the healthcare, health tech, financial and nonprofit sectors.
Those TV segments were broadcast in New York on WABC-TV, PIX 11 and News 12; in South Florida on NBC 6; in Orlando, Florida on ABC 9 and CBS 6; in San Antonio, Texas on KSAT 12 and KENS 5; in Tampa Bay, Florida on Bay 9 News and ABC Action News; in Phoenix on 3 TV, CBS 5, ABC 15 and Good Morning Arizona and in Tucson, Arizona on KOLD-13.
In October, Fox Business News ran a news story that featured their health care client as an expert on elderly abuse that was taking place in senior centers.
“This quarterly report is our way of holding our team accountable and putting our record out there for the public to see,” said Mark Macias, founder of Macias PR. “We encourage all potential clients to compare our track record with our competitors – large and small. I guarantee the biggest PR firms are not delivering media placements on this type of scale.”
In November, the New York Post ran a large feature on a health care client while Metro New York ran a cover story on its dating app client. Macias PR also secured news features with local newspapers and online publications, including Chicago Woman Magazine, Queens Gazette, Bronx Chronicle, GirlsLife, Huffington Post, Women’s Health and others.
