Is This Your Agency/Client Relationship?

On a lighter-than-usual note: Agency folks, does this video seem familiar?

Fortunately, we’re blessed with clients who aren’t like this.

Hat tip to Todd Defren.

  • Hilarious!

    Love the last part… Agencies need an intimidator to close the deal!

    awesome portrayal of how many companies dont appreciate the experience, knowledge and/or soft skills that they are receiving from agencies/consultants. Its all about sticking to your value proposition and not devaluing your services and costs – both hard and soft.

  • Your video is the perfect distillation of difficult client/agency budget discussions. Been there, done that a hundred times. We showed it at our recent Pinnacle Worldwide meeting of agency owners in La Quinta, California and our international gathering of PR pros laughed and cried, simultaneously. Well done.

  • I’ve worked at a PR agency for the last three summers and I am actually transferring into the Humber College PR program this fall. At my level, I just get to execute the programs, but I know budget negotiations are a really serious issue and I loved your satirical approach!

  • Thank you for an additional fantastic blog. Where else may one get that kind of knowledge written in such a perfect way? I even have a presentation that i am presently engaged on, and that i are yearning for such info instead.
