PR True Or False: PR Is A Waste Of Money For Startups

PR True Or False: PR Is A Waste Of Money For Startups

Firefly HQ

Last week VentureBeat ran a piece about the launch of a new virtual PR service for startups that means they don’t need to hire a public relations agency any more. Meanwhile, Dragon Den’s Deborah Meaden said this week that if you spend less than £3,000 a month on PR, you might as well not spend any money at all.

On this week’s PR True Or False Phil Szomszor and Austin Brailey discuss the value of PR to startups, whether growth hacking could take off and if there’s an ethical consideration for PR agency’s taking startup founders’ personal money.
