We are planning to improvise Presshour with version 2.0 Some of the features we planned for: 1. Filtering ability based on type of startups as well as location 2.More media outlets 3. Traffic & social shares estimates based on real life experiences If you have more suggestions, please let us know.

Thanks @tribaling for hunting Presshour. We created a resource http://promotehour.com last year which turned out to be extremely useful for 40k+ founders. Lot of folks asked us for a resource which would cover Media Outlets. So we created Presshour. What you see on homepage is pretty crude version 1.0. Ultimately, we want to turn it in to a place where you just to pick category relevant to your startup and you get a list of Media outlets you should pitch your startup to. I am sure there are several hundreds media outlets across the world which could be relevant for any startup. We have just 400 till now :) Do share your feedback on how we can improve on it.

@soundankar I think it's a really simple and winning concept. Possibly it would be useful to have contact info to the most prominent journalists and the niche they cover. But I realize that is a gigantic work, and what you have here is enough for startups to start thinking about potential venues for their PR. Good job!

What is the difference with promotehour?

@bentossell Hey Ben, thanks for asking. Promotehour is more of a list of startup directories. We thought Media outlets don't really belong to that. So we wanted to create a different source for it.
