Public Relations is a people-driven business. When you’re selecting a tech PR agency to represent your company, it’s critical to select the right people on your team that will be an extension of your organization. This will ensure your communications program is built strategically and executed upon flawlessly.

When you’re looking for the right PR team to bring on board, here are 3 areas you’ll want to evaluate.

 

Experience – Having a proven track record of reaching your target audience is critical. Make sure the firm has at least 3 solid examples of campaigns they’ve conceived and executed in your specific vertical. You want an agency that understands your industry, the competitive landscape, and the KPIs that will drive your business forward.

 

Execution – Without proper execution, no strategy is sound. You need team members that have translated strategic insights into real-world results. Look for team members that can give you tangible examples of media and influencer relationships they leverage consistently to earn coverage for their brand partners.

 

Dynamics – You have to feel good about the people you’re working with. Your agency will be an extension of your organization, so you should be able to mesh well on both a professional and personal level.  The same methodology used to ensure new internal hires are a culture fit should be applied to hiring an agency. Ask the right questions to determine they are strategically sound, able to execute, and fun to work with!
