"Awesome experience with Promotehour. They helped us get featured on top developer media platforms at a price one can only dream of with traditional PR agencies. Highly recommended."

I've tried some 20 to 30 different journalism platforms and some at ridiculous prices. Promotehour turned out to be the best among all!

FAQs

What is Promotehour and what do you offer?

We help entrepreneurs get press coverage for their startups in prominent media outlets.

Who is behind Promotehour?

We are Mona & Jit.
We created Promotehour - a free list of places to promote a startup. Over 200,000 founders have used the list over the last 2 years.
We have helped over 200+ startups secure a coverage in prominent media outlets like TechCrunch, TheNextWeb, VentureBeat, Digital Trends, Entrepreneur and 50+ media outlets.


Why PR is essential for a startup?

Good press coverage helps you get more customers, raise investor interest, hire awesome people and ultimately the growth of the startup.


Can you brief me on how it works?

1. Once you sign up for Coverage plan, we request you to fill up a short questionnaire.
2. Based on the info provided, we brainstorm the PR angle for the story and prepare the pitch as well as the list of relevant Journalists.
3. After approval from you, we reach out to relevant journalists 1-by-1 with personalized pitches, and connect you to the interested journalists and follow up with the ones who don’t respond.


What can I expect from the PR campaign?

We guarantee at 1-3+ media placements from our efforts in PRO plan. On an average we see 2 press stories from our campaign.
In the worst case if we can't deliver min. 1 press coverage within a span of 60 days, we refund 50% of the plan price.


Do you write the press release? What do I need to provide?

Yes, we write the press release as well as an email pitch. You need to fill up a short questionnaire.


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 the campaign and try different methods to get successful press coverage.


Do you also work with apps/games/gadgets/crowd-funding campaigns?

Yes! We have helped apps, games, crowd-funding 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 the other side, PR agencies can add value but they cost $5000/month with annual retainer contracts. Way beyond an entrepreneur’s budget if the startup is not funded.
Through the well-tuned process, we bring affordability and accountability to the PR space with effectiveness on par with PR agencies.
