Performance & Proposals & Payments, Oh My!

During the February 2 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros touched upon pay-by-performance, RFPs, and more. Specifically, they weighed in on the following questions:

1. Have you ever worked on a pay by performance basis? e.g., a bonus if you hit X objective, or only get paid when the objective met?

2. When responding to an RFP, how do you keep from coming in too high (or too low) on budget?

3. In proposals, what percentage of a project do you allocate for planning and eval/measurement?

Be sure to check out the transcript in PDF for the full discussion. What's your take on these important topics?

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!
