Brand Central Station is not a conventional advertising agency, PR firm or consultancy. We’re an administrative access point to a network of individuals and firms who can do outstanding work. But there have to be basic rules and guidelines in place that allow for the free exchange of ideas, information, instructions and, eventually, money.  For that reason, we have these basic operating rules (which are spelled out in more detail in our Letter of Engagement):

  • You hire Brand Central Station and the folks doing the work are contractors who work for us. BCS reserves the right to change contractors at our discretion and clients are prohibited from hiring contractors directly. Contractors are also restricted from soliciting clients directly and may be removed from any/all BCS projects if they do.
  • Brand Central Station requires a deposit payment from clients in order to make sure all services are provided on a “positive cash flow” basis.  Final payments for services are retained by BCS on the client’s behalf until the client is satisfied and authorizes final payment to contractors.
  • Brand Central Station bills clients on a monthly basis but reserves the right to invoice progressively on large projects (clients will be informed and must authorize these payment terms in advance).
  • All invoices rendered by Brand Central Station are due upon receipt. Past due invoices are subject to a 1-1/2% per month service charge.
  • A statement of accounting on all projects can be made available to clients upon request.
  • Client satisfaction regarding team and vendor performance is measured at the end of each project. Unsatisfactory ratings of a contractor or vendor may result in the removal of that person or vendor from the team.
  • Payments to BCS can be made by check, EFT, ACH, wire transfer or credit card. Credit card payments will include a 3-1/2% service fee.
  • Brand Central Station requires all contractors to sign a general non-disclosure agreement on all work assigned to them. If a client requires an NDA, Brand Central Station may sign on behalf of its contractors and obligate them.
  • All international transactions are conducted in US Dollars.
  • A schedule of general administrative fees (e.g. mileage, shipping, copying, etc.) is available upon request and will be included in each plan submitted to a client for review and approval.
