Managing Your Solo PR Business

As part of this week’s #solopr Twitter chat, pros in PR consulting offered insights on a wide-range of topics, including the following:

1. A community member wanted to discuss @ginidietrich‘s post: It's Time to Rid PR Firms of the Billable Hour. What do you think of billing by the hour?

2. How do you deal with PAPER? Beyond electronic storage. What about old client, project files?

3. If someone who isn't a #solopr is approached to do freelance projects, what would you advise?

3a (follow-up question). [What if someone] asks for a finder's fee or commission to pass along business?

4. What are the top skills you find clients are looking for right now?

Just download the chat transcript in PDF for the full discussion. What do you think — do you have any extra tips to share?
