Upbeat (formerly PRX) is a next-generation, software-powered PR agency
Jona is a do-it-yourself kit for makers to get press coverage for their startups. It gives makers lifetime access to a database of journalists, a step-by-step PR guide, strategy help, pitch templates and access to the community.
Startuplister helps startups build backlinks, pitch blogs, and get traffic. Of course, you could hire your own virtual assistant to do this work. It's not rocket science, but it is laborious -- it'd take you roughly 8 hours to complete each submission. That's why we exist -- to help startups get exposure quickly and cost effectively.
