PR in Denmark
Danish media landscape is characterised by a strong digital turnaround that has been taking place for the last few years. On TV public service broadcasters are most preferred, readership of print media has been dropping significantly, and smartphones keep on growing in popularity as a news source. Traditional media still have a high rate of trust among their own audiences although they now distribute news online. Among worth-mentioning quality media there is the online Zetland recognised for its innovative approach and quality stories – 80% of their subscribers listen to rather than read their stories.
The Danish population is highly multicultural and is characterised by a high level of tolerance and social equality. Danes are open and helpful, they may however avoid conversations about their private life within business situations.
English, known by approx. 80 percent of Danes, is commonly used as a corporate language in a great number of companies located in Denmark.

How much does PR cost in Denmark?
Hourly rates differ from 80 EUR for juniors up to 250 (or more) for partners. Independent and small agencies have lower rates than large network agencies.
Monthly retainers start around 1300 EUR which can cover one press release per month including personal pitching to media, 3000 EUR is a good base for ongoing PR (2-3 stories / bylines per month) and really ambitious companies can spend 2-3x the amount but should be aware that Danish media prefer Danish stories, so be realistic and maybe divert some of the budget into paid media.
