Get Guaranteed Press for Your Startup!
TLDR: We have launched better and more valuable Submission and Coverage plans. Coverage plans come with organic press coverage guarantee + Lifetime access to our media database app: Jona. We moved Free list of Startup directories to https://promotehour.com/startup-... & Free list of Media outlets to https://promotehour.com/startup-... PH exclusive offer: For the next 24hrs, 20 startups get Submission plan for free if they signup for the Coverage PRO or GRAND plan. Longer Version: 3 Years ago we started Promotehour with a free list of startup directories. Eventually, the list of startup directories made a way for the bigger list of 1100+ media outlets. Both lists have been used by over 300,000 entrepreneurs and marketers till now. Our paid plans which were our sole medium to earn bread and butter remained on the backstage driving 4 digit revenue month on month. After a lot of experiments with deliverables and pricing, we are happy to re-introduce them to the ProductHunt community. 1. We have brought back the Submission plan to help you create a presence on startup directories. 2. Our Press coverage plans are now more valuable than ever. Our middle plan which costs $399 offers: a. Guaranteed organic press coverage: We will get your startup organic press coverage in a prominent media outlets with a domain authority of 60+. b.50% Money back guarantee: We will refund 50% of the money if we don't deliver a coverage despite multiple rounds of outreach. c. Lifetime access to our media database app: You get lifetime access to our media database (10k journalists & growing) app where you can find relevant journalists as per beats or media database. Why only 50% money-back guarantee? PR is inherently high-reward, high-risk marketing channel. With our coverage plans, there is a 50% chance startup won't get a press coverage but that shouldn't stop anyone from trying. We are trying to hit middle-ground with 50% money back guarantee. If you don't get a press coverage, you pay a nominal fee for our efforts as well as lifetime access to our app. And we can keep offering the service without going down :) PH exclusive offer: For the next 24-hrs, 20 startups can get the Submission plan for free if they signup for the Coverage PRO or GRAND plan on first come, first serve basis. Will be more than happy to answer any questions, criticism, and praise!

@jitsalunke Given journos have autonomy how can you guarantee organic coverage? What if my product is extremely banal and not newsworthy at all...

@abadesi Thanks Abadesi for taking time out to check the service. It does happen that the product is not newsworthy at all but there is always a room to get press by trying diff. things like Guest post, pitching to local journos or bloggers. E.g. Web dev agencies won't get a press coverage but they definitely stand a chance if they have some interesting insights to share. All said and done, there is 50% chance startup won't get a press coverage he is looking for. But that shouldn't stop anyone from trying. That's why we have 50% money back guarantee.

I've had a negative experience with PromoteHour. I purchased their service with a 50% guaranteed refund if no coverage could be generated. There was exactly one "update" from PromoteHour's team in a span of two months and nothing in between. So, $599.99 for one update. Wow, a great deal right? (being sarcastic here). They advertise multiple rounds of outreach? I have no clue if they did more than one, because I only got one update even when I asked multiple times for an update. After 2 months, I decided to ask for a refund since no progress was made whatsoever. I had to ask multiple times for a refund, which a few times the PromoteHour's team evaded my question, and they finally agreed to a 50% refund... which they said that they'll process. It took them an entire week to process the refund, to which I didn't even get the full refund. The did refund the $299.50, but post PayPal processing fee, $286.02 is sitting in my PayPal account. Yes, it's only a $12 difference, but it is not the 50% advertised. Maybe these guys have gotten some decent press coverage for other startups, but my experience with PromoteHour has been that the team behind their service is a joke and dishonest when it comes to their refund policy.
