May 19 Chat Transcript

During the #solopr Twitter chat this week, PR consultants shared their top tips on topics that are key to running an independent PR business successfully. The questions included:

1)  Does anyone have a co-op, biz partner or share office space? How's that working out?

2)  How do you charge for full-day sessions w/a client? Hourly rate? What if clients asks for a “day rate”?

3) Do you include a termination notice in their contracts? How do you manage if a client won't?

4) How do you handle clients that don't pay/honor contract? Are you worried about reputation if you fight?
