Hi Friend, 

“We need to talk”.

Those four words are your clue that you need to act quick in your relationship. But what if those words came from your PR consultant?

That’s right, the agency/client relationship is also one of compromise and listening. This week’s blog is Agency Relationship 101. Here’s a hint: we both need to give a little and take a little.   

Because, just as you can fire your PR agency, they can also terminate the relationship.

One commercial relationship that is proving fruitful is between brands and influencers. If you combined Kris Jenner with a wellness/mummy blogger and swapped the Balmain for breakfast cereal, you might create Taiwanese-Chinese reality TV star and “supermum” Alyssa Chia. Ms Chia has been the key to Sanitarium’s strategy to grow into China. Read on to find out why Weet Bix are now selling at $50 a pop in that market.
