When Things Don’t Go According To Plan & More

PrintDuring the January 16 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed unexpected client issues, time tracking software, & Lance Armstrong’s PR crisis. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

  1. When something isn’t going according to plan, do you tell the client asap, or wait ’til you have something to recommend? #solopr 

  2. We haven’t talked about this in a while, & since it’s a new year: what are you using for time tracking & billing these days?#solopr 

  3. There’s been so much coverage re: Lance Armstrong this week. From a PR perspective, can he come back? #solopr

    To make things go in the most proper way or manner, its the time factor that matters a lot in the go. Always it has been advised by experts that time tracking and management must go with automated version of tools because most of us ignored the time which leads to the a great loss in future.

    Inspired by my current company I have always opted to go with the time tracking software which is automated ones and makes the things go in a much proper manner and way and that helps. Eventually I have been using time tracking software from Replicon – http://www.replicon.com/time-tracking-softwares.aspx which is cloud based with calender based and user friendly interface manages the time pretty well and exclusively. Upon using this software I have learned to get organized and streamlined in all those manner.
