How to Grow a PR agency

I just listened to podcast 188 about how to Grow, Build and Sell a PR agency, and I really thought the advice was great.

I call myself an online marketing consultant but I am facing so many of the issues about growth and management that they raised in the podcast. Such great insight from two guest who demonstrate TE d they have a lot of experience with this topic.

I really want to like this. But the production quality is just so bad

This pod seems to find a way to talk about developments in the PR and ad agency word in a timely manner. Which makes me want to like it. But it is just so poorly produced. The audio quality is awful, there doesn’t seem to be an editorial storyline to the questioning. Episodes never provide context or background to new listeners. I’m surprised it has this many episodes. Plus for people in the communications business, the bar really needs to be higher.
