Conclusion

* Thoughts, directions, ideas, improvements and requirements should be discussed regularly whether it is written, face to face or on the phone as this enables the Prestige to express our needs and provides the opportunity to go into background detail that is not always easy to put in writing. Develop the Relationship * The participation of individuals significantly influence the perceived quality of the advertising service and the Whole business relationship * Trust is the most important factor in a good relationship. Prestige should ensure that MKH understand our goals and objectives and resources. MKH should be allowed to develop close relationships with the key people at Prestige. Planning & Consistancy * Prestige need to set clear goals and objectives in order to give both MKH and ourselves a clear plan but to give us a basis to judge the creative and to measure the results. * Prestige needs to stick to decisions and return approved copy and layout on time as we are particularly bad at causing delays by changing our minds. * Prestige need to make sure that we don't change our standards from meeting to meeting. Conclusion Prestige will continue to work with MKH and will strive to develop a better understanding of the advertising process, by becoming more involved with and utlising more of MKH's services. Communication will be more regular in future and Prestige more accurate in our briefs and decisive in approving work that is pitched. ...read more.
