New Business, Renegotiating Client Contracts, & More

The November 16, 2011 chat was sponsored by PitchPen, a new service for consultants to pitch companies actively seeking PR help: Consultant participation in PitchPen is invite only- email with your name/experience/links to request an invite.

During the October 12 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed new business for 2012, working from a home office, charging for trade show work, and renegotiating client contracts. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

  1. What are you doing right now to get more business for 2012?
  2. If you work from a home office, are you pleased w/the set up and how it looks?
  3. Client is trade show. How do you charge for three 10-hour days?
  4. Client recently hired someone, now says out of money- seeks to renegotiate contract $, w/same responsibilities. What to do?
