4534XP - TIME-SENSITIVE PR Services - Inquiry - What's the Best (and what's the cost?)
- Apr 2, 2009I'm used to clients who have tight budgets and won't spring for things like
clipping services, wouldn't consider VNRs, and think satellite media tours
can be done by Skype. However, I've now got a client who has - or hopes to
have - sufficient funding to do things right. They've asked me to put
together a list of recommendations, along with costs, for PR support
services - naturally while I'm home in bed recovering from a sinus infection
that WON'T GO AWAY (grumble), giving me very little energy and not much
focus. I tried contacting Cison - asking for a service/price list - but
instead of a written list I got a smarmy young man calling me at the end of
the work day who clearly wasn't interested and didn't call me back at a
better time (as I'd asked).
So I'm reaching out to you, my colleagues, and asking for your help on one
or more of the questions here. Please scroll down through a series of
questions and answer those you can - post to the list or to me at
ned-at-barnettmarcom.com (or both). Thanks
I've identified the following as possible services:
Satellite Media Tours
Release Distribution Services
My first question: What am I overlooking? Is there a service out there
that has escaped my fevered brain's limited attention span?
My next question - for each of these categories, can you provide a vendor
you'd recommend, along with at least a ballpark number on their cost (if not
the cost, then at least the name and recommendation)? Please tell me why
you recommend them, as I'm sure I'll be asked. If you can also briefly
explain HOW to best work with them, so much the better.
Next, for the same list, can you warn me away from any vendors you've had
bad experiences with? You can detail this or not as you see fit.
Finally, I'm sure to have overlooked something, so please fill in the
