but our work can be measured effectively

Michael Bland's argument that the value of PR cannot be measured (Letters, 16 June) sums up a problem for the industry - which many show little interest in addressing.

There are many techniques that allow value for money to be measured and, on most occasions, these provide evidence of PR's effectiveness.

I can also provide research-based evidence that demonstrates why PR, specifically media relations, is so powerful in contrast to other disciplines such as advertising.

It's time the PR industry woke up to reality.
