PR is an amazing tool to let people know about your brand. Comit has been in the business for more than two decades yet one of the most common questions we get is – how to choose the right PR agency. We’ve heard it at meetings, events and while networking with people who don’t have a PR agency.
It’s been a long ol’ year and it’s not over yet! As Ireland’s leading tech PR agency, we’ve had an exceptionally busy 12 months helping our clients help their clients with connectivity, innovation and digital transformation - all essential for life in lockdown.

A 'one-size fits all' approach to client management just doesn’t cut it in today’s highly competitive PR agency landscape. Given the numerous ways that PR can elevate your brand, it is important that PR agency client managers get to work quickly, both in terms of delivering tangible results, but also in terms of complementing a tailored communications strategy with a personable, engaging style of management.
