Public relations does require a level of understanding and strategy, and face to face meetings are highly recommended, in order to effectively communicate objectives and marketing strategies.

Selecting an agency that has an understanding of your industry is very important. They will have experience in working with your target media.
They will have relationships with the various target publications you would be featured in. They should be able to get you positioned in the most effective way to generate results for you quickly.
All PR companies in Southampton set different fees for their services, some charge per month, some per year; a few charge by results. Generally the larger the agency is, the higher the PR prices will be. As they have higher overheads, more staff and larger offices; whereas the reverse is the case for smaller PR companies.
Shopping around for quotes is part of today’s society; the cheapest agency is not necessarily the best. However comparing quotes does ensure that you are not overspending unnecessarily. There is also the need to take advice, and go some way to define your campaign, before obtaining a firm costing.
This major port and city is situated in Hampshire on the south coast of England; it has a population of around quarter of a million according to council data. The site has been inhabited since the Stone Age, and the Romans used the area as part of the defences to protect Winchester. When the Romans left England, the Anglo Saxons moved in expanding the area, around St Mary’s, calling it ‘Hamwic’, which later became named ‘Hampton’. The name of the county of Hampshire gets it’s name from this Anglo Saxon town. The Normans invaded in 1066 and it became a major port, between the then capital Winchester and Normandy. The Normans built the castle.
In 1620 Southampton was the port from which the Pilgrim Fathers finally departed in the Mayflower, when they left to cross the Atlantic to the New World. During 1642 it was occupied by the Parliamentary forces and had a number of attacks from Royalist troops, and in the 18th century it was used as a staging post for war with France. In 1740 it became a Spa town where people would come to ‘take the water’.
During World War II 630 people lost their lives as a result of Luftwaffe air raids and over 2,000 people were injured. Much of the ancient city was destroyed due to the War, however the city has been rebuilt and modernised as a result. In 1952 the college of Highfield was upgraded to the University and it became a city in 1964.
