Just read this post on Guy’s blog – The Top Ten Reasons Why PR Doesn’t Work

1. The client doesn’t understand …
2. The scope of work is not detailed
3. The client has not been properly trained …
4. The client
5. The client has not
6. PR people don’t …
7. Clients don’t
8. Clients refuse to be …
9. Clients get upset
10. Clients won’t change their …

Can you believe this? A professional is asked to list 10 things that constraint the practice and 9 of the 10 she comes up with are listed as, more or less, faults on part of clients.

Guy may have posted the list as an educator, for marketers who employ PR, to get a bigger bang for their buck. But all I saw in there was one sentence: Clients are terribly wrong and moreover refuse to adapt to work with us!

I suggest you go read the post yourself
