It makes good sense to work with someone local, rather than an agency that is several hours drive away. There are over 100 agencies in Suffolk to choose from. So if there is not a local company that is suited very close to you, certainly there will be many agencies to consider that are not too far away.
When considering using an agency, it is advisable to arrange a meeting with them before a decision is reached. As the personal touch in the media world is important. Some PR agencies make claims on their websites. Claims about winning awards, blue chip clients they have worked with, and so forth. A meeting gives a good chance to make your own appraisal, and ensure that all is as it appears.
Selecting a partner that understands your industry is important. As it is better if there is no learning curve as they get to grips with your business or product. They might then have established contacts within industry media groups, to approach right away, so as to get your campaign up and running.
One thing to bear in mind when considering your media is that all PR companies in Ipswich are privately owned, they all set their own fees and are all profit making. All agencies need to generate income for staff from the fees they charge. The costs of PR are therefore related to the size of the agency as well as their overheads, the work they do for you, and the added costs of any press releases.
Comparing quotes is important so as to not to pay too much, perhaps for too big an agency, when a smaller one may be able to do the same work for less.
