As a journalist and an editor it amazes me how poorly some PR agencies represent their clients. Forget about getting their messages heard and developing a good image – I find clients often miss out on exposure or even gain bad publicity because of, rather than despite, their PR. And trust me, there is such a thing as bad publicity. I’m not letting marketing managers and companies that do their own PR off the hook either – they often make the same mistakes as PR agencies.
