For many years, HMA has had the pleasure of working with agency partners across the globe to pitch and secure business. Through our memberships in PRGN and PRSA’s Counselors Academy, we have access to some very smart professionals who we can rely on to be a part of our team or just pitch-in when we need on-the-ground support in another market.
But how about here at home? We refer business to PR colleagues when we have a conflict or feel that someone else might be better suited to handle the work. And we certainly contact our fellow PR practitioners at other agencies when we need their assistance on one of our client projects – Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge, for instance. And we’ve been reached out to, as well, from other agencies needing assistance from one of our clients, most recently, the Ak-Chin Indian Community’s involvement in the College Football Championship Campus and the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
And of course, we have hired graphic designers, photographers, videographers, etc. for project work on behalf of a client.
Truth is, with the right client and the right project, there is no reason not to work with an agency partner in your home town. HMA prides itself on knowing what we do best…and equally as important, what we don’t. And what we should be focusing on is what resources do we need to do what’s right for our client.Here’s to many more classy collaborations with friends near and far.
