How much time does it take to see the results?

The campaign usually takes 2-3 weeks from the time you sign up. But do keep in mind that it does take time to see results in some cases. That's why we ask for 60-day campaign window which enables us to carry out campaign and try different methods to get successful press coverage.

Yes! We have helped apps, games, crowd-fudning campaigns get coverage in the past.


Which media outlets and journalists you target?

We pitch to all the top media outlets as well as niche media outlets which are relevant to your startup. E.g. if you have built a productivity app, we will pitch to the likes of TechCrunch, NextWeb as well as Lifehacker, PickTheBrain, etc.


How does it compare with PRNewsWire or PR Agencies?

Press release services guarantee you coverage which they drive by syndication with media companies. But such coverage drives little to zero traffic to your site which is the actual purpose of the coverage, because syndicated stories never appear on the homepage of media outlet. To make matter worse, Google had come hard on press releases in their Panda update. So, such stories don't even appear in search results.
On other side, PR agencies can add value but they cost $5000/month with annual retainer contracts. Way beyond entrepreneur’s budget is the startup is not funded.
Through the well tuned process, we bring affordability to the PR space with effectiveness on par with PR agencies.
