BOCA RATON, FL (PRWEB) September 6, 2005 -
cost way for my business to get media coverage Â but I canÂt afford fat public relations retainers. Besides, what if I pay some public relations firm thousands of dollars and then they come up with nothing?Â
Fisher found a way to help. Today, Margie Fisher Public Relations (http://www.margiefisher.com ) offers the Pay For Results Publicity ProgramÂ where clients pay only if they get media coverage.
ÂThe retainer model is the way most public relation firms practice,Â says Fisher, Âbut that model just doesnÂt work for many small companies.Â
Fisher wonÂt soon forget Steve Sims, her first Pay-For-Results client Â owner of Bluefish Concierge, a transportation and entertainment company that caters to executives, celebrities and other well-heeled types who can afford to lease $250,000 automobiles and fly in Hollywood stars to perform at private parties. The West Palm Beach company has been featured in a string of top-tier media including Entrepreneur, The New York Times, The Orange County Register and the Palm Beach Post.
ÂIÂve worked with other public relations firms,Â says Sims, Âbut none competes with Margie.Â
Fisher says some clients want an even lower-cost public relations choice.Â Enter the Reduced Fee Publicity ProgramÂ.
ÂThe concept is simple,Â says Fisher. ÂLetÂs say one of my staff is speaking with a reporter from USA Today and that reporter mentions a story heÂs working on, and we have a client who would be a good fit for it. HereÂs where a ÂReduced Fee Publicity Opportunity,Â kicks in,Â she says. ÂI can offer much lower fees because we donÂt have to pitch the story idea, only the source Â and this saves a lot of time.Â
Fisher says she and her staff speak to many editors and reporters every day. ÂIt just stands to reason that these journalists are seeking sources for other stories theyÂre working on.Â
Wendy Almquist, owner of Boca Raton-based Beeswax Candle Company is one of FisherÂs low-cost publicity clients.
ÂMargie called and said the the Wall Street Journal needed a source, and I fit the criteria. For a very small fee, my little company was featured in the nationÂs most prominent business publication.Â
