Not sure how to fire your ad agency? While breaking up with an ad agency is never easy, sometimes it just has to be done. As the cost of business class flights and goat’s milk cappuccinos increase, so too do your ad agency fees. At some point or another, you may not be able to justify the expense.

Below are a few tips to smooth over the experience and make it as painless as possible:

1. Pick the right time
Choosing the right time of day to meet up with your ad agency is incredibly important. Too early in the morning, and they’ll still be hungover. Too late in the afternoon and they’ll be too intoxicated. I recommend around 11:30 am, just before they head out for their long lunch.

2. Bring them a gift
There’s nothing ad agencies love more than decorative shelf ornaments with their names inscribed on them.

Hot tip: Complement their 100% organic hemp knit beanie.

3. Tell them directly ‘You’re Fired’
Thank the unpaid interns on the way out for all their hard work.
