So where do you start, how do you find the right firm:
Most businesses given the choice would prefer to work with a local agency whenever possible. So as to enjoy meetings on a human level, rather than electronically. As there are quite a few companies locally to choose from, there are enough to compare.
Experience is possibly the defining factor to influence results. Selecting an agency that has worked in your industry, knows your competitors, has already developed contacts in relevant media, can result in effective PR that is targeted.
Many companies/people believe that going with a recommendation is good. Indeed a lot of marketing companies base their sales on recommendations. But just because a firm has worked well for a friend, does not mean they will do so with you. They may not understand your product/service or know the media publications you wish to target. They will indeed be glad to help and may work hard, but not work as effectively as an agency that has already worked in your industry.
Size of company does not really determine how effective the campaign is. However if you are a global business, then talking to a firm that has a global reach is wise. Likewise, if you are a new business, then talking to a small bespoke agency is the best course to follow.
There are no standard PR prices and firms vary in what they will charge depending on their overheads, staff salaries and charging structure. As well as other factors such as expertise and the type of campaign.
