Hey guys! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Press Hunt is a categorized database of 750k journalists & podcasts. Running PR campaigns is expensive and time-consuming. It can take hundreds of hours to find the right journalists to reach out to about your new product launch or fundraising round. Finding the right journalists to pitch, then finding their current email, is the biggest kink in every PR campaign. Press Hunt aggregates millions of data points on 550k+ journalists, reporters, and media outlets, and 200k+ podcasts. Most importantly, Press Hunt includes tags and categories to help you find the most relevant journalists AND their direct email address. Since our 2.0 weโ€™ve: ๐Ÿ“ฐ Added ~200k new journalists from all over the world ๐Ÿ”ฎ Enriched our journalist dataset with more attributes, including photos & twitter bios ๐Ÿ“ป Added over 200k podcasts to the database, complete with emails and data like hosts and # of episodes ๐Ÿค– Integrated a guided Press Hunt experience where we lead your campaign, match you with 1,000 journalists, and run outreach email campaigns for you ๐ŸŽจ Drastically improved our UI to help you find new journalists to pitch and easily export their contact info ๐Ÿ† Helped hundreds of startups, enterprises, and PR agencies like Universal Music Group, Datadog, and Taskade (YC S19) run PR campaigns Weโ€™ve also brought on some new talent to the team, like Andrew Medal who hosts podcasts for Entrepreneur & Sirius XM reaching tens of millions in their network, and has written columns for and contributed to outlets like The Next Web, Forbes, and Inc for the last 6 years. Heโ€™s interviewed people like Gary Vaynerchuk, DJ Khaled, and Nipsey Hussle for his shows. Press Hunt plans start at $69/mo, but weโ€™ve made a special 40% off forever lifetime discount code for early adopters on Product Hunt: PRODUCTHUNT. This code expires this week. ๐Ÿ™‚ Weโ€™ll be around all day to field feedback, answer questions, and help you get started. Thanks for reading this all the way through! - Matt, Aaron, & Andrew
I love this product I have been using it since 1.0. I've been following your 24 in 12 challenge for the past year. Really loving the output guys
@mungerology Thanks for following along man! Really appreciate the support ๐Ÿ“ˆ Hope you're happy with the new updates ๐Ÿ™‚
@mungerology appreciate you! ๐Ÿš€
Interesting, thanks! I wish we could get a little more context about each journalist and also a training on how to reach out to them properly.
@romain_carpentier Thanks Romain! Yeah our goal is to keep building more comprehensive profiles of journalists to give more context about them, what they like to write about, etc. Training is a great idea! We're working on some resources to help startups get press. I can follow up when that's ready!
@romain_carpentier @juhaszhenderson Yeah Matt I agree with Romain on this one. I'd like training or resources to help me better use the dataset
@romain_carpentier @juhaszhenderson As Matt said we've been working on some resources to provide support for pitches. We also have some templates that work well. Once you signup feel free to email us directly and we can send your way (probably will add this as another feature in the near-term too). ๐Ÿš€
If you build it, they wonโ€™t come...unless you put yourself out there with a strong PR strategy. Congratulations to Matt on launching the third version of this invaluable service for startups ๐Ÿš€
