BlabberMouth PR Launches Community and Economic Development Communications Program for Municipalities

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- BlabberMouth PR, the only public relations firm to offer its clients 100% representation by senior-level practitioners, announced today the launch of their Community and Economic Development Communications Program for municipalities from nations, states and cities.

Once a municipality has assessed their economic strengths, business climate, infrastructure, livability and site opportunities, BlabberMouth PR will develop a communications strategy designed to engage the processes of establishing their brand. Subsequently, BlabberMouth will deliver solid messages to audiences with the most potential for making positive changes in the region. In doing so, BlabberMouth draws on its extensive experience in industries specific to economic development, including life sciences, IT, hardware, software, manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, energy and physics.

"As growth-oriented communities begin their planning aimed at supporting the development of economy, it's important for them to develop a unified vision and a plan of action to attract the groups that will naturally help create and sustain the area's evolution, such as entrepreneurs, large employers, well-educated employees, and tourists, to name a few," stated BlabberMouth President Dr. Duana Welch. "However, communities compete stridently for recognition among these groups. Branding via public relations can make the difference between garnering the desired results, and remaining unappreciated and overlooked. BlabberMouth is proud to build on our longstanding experience to offer these Economic Development campaigns, enhancing an area's public perception via market penetration with highly specialized and distinctive messages."

BlabberMouth's economic development experience includes work with entities such as the State of Texas; the Texas Department of Commerce; the Czech Republic; Texas Healthcare and Bioscience Institute; Tamaulipas, Mexico; the International Travelers Tourist Guide, Inc. (Houston); Lubbock, Texas; and the State of Mississippi.

As a testament to the success of their Community and Economic Development Communications Program, BlabberMouth implemented a campaign for the Czech Republic. Company executives worked directly with CzechInvest, the Investment and Business Development Agency of the Czech Republic's Ministry of Industry and Trade. The Czech Republic had experienced a public reputation that did not fully represent the depth of the country's offering, and it sought to deepen an understanding of the nation's business landscape and engineering prowess in the United States.

Their public relations objectives were to support the attraction of foreign investment and the development of Czech companies. In order to reach these objectives, BlabberMouth publicized key studies on the Czech Republic's human resource assets and leadership in math and science; announced foreign direct investment wins; and maintained ongoing communications with national and international business editors in influential media outlets throughout the U.S.

As reported by CzechInvest in September 2006, the Czech Republic was ranked by the annual European Cities Monitor (ECM) as the second most competitive country in Central and Eastern Europe, and Prague was ranked 13th among 33 European cities in terms of conditions for running a business. Additionally, the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) forecasted the Czech economy as one of the fastest growing in Europe.

Concluded Welch, "We at BlabberMouth are proud of our successes in assisting municipalities to become branded thus far, and we look forward to expanding the good repute of communities around the world and around town through our Community and Economic Development Communications Program."
