Proposals, Pricing and More

Proposals, Pricing and More

As part of this week’s #solopr Twitter chat, pros in PR consulting offered advice on two key issues in running your business, addressing the following questions:

1. As discussed in today's Solo PR post, have you used value/fee-based (rather than hourly) pricing? Experiences?

1a. For those who use value-based pricing for media relations, how do you “sell” this?

2: In your experience, how long does a client take to respond to a successful proposal? Is silence a bad sign?

2a. Regarding client pre-qualification, do you talk budget before submitting a proposal?
