Building Media Relationships in Europe PR Services Comparison  Manage all European countries directly.  Direct experience in working on online games.  Building communication over-time, not just launch.  Interact with media beyond specialized press. Build peripheral interest media lists and enthusiast press (blogs, fan sites).  Handle one country directly. Hand over PR for other countries to partners.  Most staff have only worked for agencies, and have limited experience of the realities of a game service.  Build communication for a launch, move on to other projects after.  Focused on specialized press.
