We help your agency find new business opportunities
The PRCA's Matchmaker service is designed specifically to help PRCA agencies to find new business. To be on Matchmaker, agencies must have obtained the Communications Management Standard (CMS). Marketers, procurement professionals, business owners and in-house communications teams contact the PRCA looking for PR and communications support and through Matchmaker we connect them to the appropriate PR and communications agencies.
Up-front vs. commission models
Agencies are, by default, enrolled on a no win no fee commission based model. Should an agency win a brief, the PRCA will charge the agency either 5% of total project fees or of total first year fees.
However, agencies also have the choice to sign up for the up-front Matchmaker model.
What is the annual cost for the up-front model?
|Fee income: Less than £500k||Fee income: £500k - £99k||Fee income: £1m - £4.9m||Fee income: £5m+|
What are the benefits?
Enhanced agency profiles with the ability to showcase up to six interactive case studies including videos.
No commission owed upon winning a brief(s).
