4. Assess their communication and collaboration skills: Ensure that the PR agency has good communication skills and can work effectively with your internal teams and stakeholders.
5. Consider their cultural fit: Consider whether the PR agency’s culture and values align with your own, as this can significantly impact the partnership’s success.
6. Request references and conduct reference checks: Ask for references and follow up with past clients to learn about their experiences working with the PR agency.
7. Review their pricing and services: Compare pricing and services offered by different PR agencies to ensure that you get value for your investment.
8. Have a trial period: Consider working with a PR agency on a trial basis to ensure the partnership is a good fit before committing to a long-term contract.
9. Go with that gut feeling! Did you laugh? Did you feel welcome? You will be spending a significant amount of time communicating with your agency. You might as well go with someone you like 😊.
