@petershankman founded HARO so he knows a bit about this space. ;) I'm curious what reporters think of this. They already get pitched like mad but if you can help them connect w/ the right people + content, they should appreciate it.

My feedbacks are 1. I recommend to use "Forget PR Firms, connect with relevant reporters yourself." as H1. In the current layout people cant see your main pitch. 2. While loading you say "Sit tight, we're searching latest news articles about "productivity" so you can connect with reporters over a common interest." I think, you should show us how important thing you do. For example you can say "we are searching 111111 resources and 222222 reporters" 3. Then "Reach All" button would be nice. To sum up, i think, you do a great job. I like the flow.

P.S. I have one concern. So this is for people who reach out to reporters instead of using PR firms. I would personally do my outreach myself instead of paying a lot of money (I checked out your pricing model). What does JustReachOut offer that one cannot do themselves for free?

@rrhover - yes we do give you an email address. Our product is a bit different in a sense that we are trying to get startups to form long lasting relationships with reporters, not mass-contact a bunch of them with news of a produce launch.
