Issues with Subcontracting, and more

On the #solopr Twitter chat this week, we discussed several critical issues related to working with subcontractors, among other things. The questions included:

1) How can you start a virtual firm with other solo PR folks?

2) What if a subcontractor (in this case, photographer) tries to change an agreement midstream and holds work “hostage”?

3) What system do you use to keep track of your contacts?

4) For someone already working in PR who never got a degree (and is a single Mom), is one necessary?


To see what some of the top independent PR consultants nationwide had to say, be sure to download the transcript in PDF. Add your wisdom to the conversation — what do you think about the questions above?

The #solopr chat – held each Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. Eastern – is a weekly ritual for some of the most savvy Solo PR Pros on Twitter. Anyone with a Twitter account is welcome to participate – see Join Us for the #solopr Chat on Twitter to find out how!

  • Very good things to consider. It is amazing to me that people are so quick to run out and hire help. Personally, I think we ought to push ourselves a bit more.
