Media Contact Database

Connect with the best journalists in your industry

Why you need our media database

Can contact information be downloaded as a CSV file?

Our database has been built to be used on-the-go. Even so, downloading mass email addresses is not wise because it encourages mass emailing. This might seem convenient to you, but in the media world, mass emailing is regarded as spam. Our PR experts have enough experience working with the media to know that personalized email pitches are always more effective than mass pitches. There is no world in which spamming will help you achieve effective media coverage. Trust us on that one. 

Why should I use Pressfarm's media database in addition to getting a custom media list?

Pressfarm’s database helps make it easy for startups to capture media attention and generate coverage in media outlets and popular blogs. Any of our packages allows you access to the database for an entire year. With this database, you can search for journalists in different industries and unlock contact information using credits. Moreover, our on-demand media lists contain contact information for the best people to help you tell your story.

Having newsworthy content is not quite enough anymore, especially if you can’t get it in front of the right eyes. With a custom media list, you will have a higher chance of getting press coverage and media attention from journalists and bloggers in your niche.

After Pressfarm’s PR specialists and expert writers have created quality content for you, our Account Executive will also create custom media lists for you. These contacts are pulled from different sources and networks, including our comprehensive database of over 1 million contacts across different industries. Your personalized media lists should help boost your media outreach by connecting you with the best journalists in your niche. The number of media contacts you get will depend on the package you’ve chosen.

40You want to share your brand story with the world. A media database helps you to connect with skilled storytellers who can help you tell this story. Whether you’re looking for journalists, bloggers or influencers, you should be able to find them all in a good media database. The best media databases also help you organize your media outreach.

We pride ourselves on having a comprehensive media database of over 1 million journalists, bloggers and influencers across different industries. In order to gain access to this media database, you first need to choose a PR package that fits your PR needs. From there, you can get access to up to 500 PR contacts who can help you share your brand story with the world. This gives you continued press coverage for a full year.

Our database is designed to make ongoing media outreach easier for you. Whenever you need to contact a fresh batch of journalists, all you need to do is look through our database and pick the relevant contacts.

Is the database up-to-date?

Pressfarm works round the clock to ensure that journalists’ contacts are up-to-date. We are always welcoming new media professionals to our database. While we strive to only work with updated contact information, we sometimes miss one or two contacts that may need updating. If you think a contact is out-of-date, you can let us know by sending us feedback through our live chat or emailing info (at) press.farm.

How are contacts filtered?

You can filter these contacts by niche/industry, beat and keywords. Given that some sectors, like technology, are a broad niche, Pressfarm recommends that some startups consider a sub-niche that will generate better results. 

For example, let’s look at the gaming industry. While gaming is technically in the technology niche, a tech journalist who usually creates content about mobile phones or other devices will probably not be interested in the new game your company has built. In this case, we would advise you to search for journalists who are specifically focused on gaming. To this end, our Account Executive would also create a customized media list to fit your new game. 

Can contacts be filtered by country, interests, and job title?

Currently, clients can only filter contacts by job interests and publications. But, as our services continue to evolve, we are working on a country filter. At the moment, our contacts are primarily based in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Since we work with clients all over the world, the upcoming country filter will help people like you to the perfect media match in your region and beyond. 

How do you ensure assured deliverability?

The constant updates to our media database ensure we stay current with the ever-changing media scene and bring you contacts that get you through to your target. High deliverability is the difference between a media list that works and one that does not.

Can I reach media professionals in different industries?

We pull our media contacts from a wide range of industries. Use our powerful search engine to connect with professionals from the tech, fashion, cryptocurrency, business, and entertainment industries, among others. 

You want to capture your target audience’s attention, so you need to partner with a trusted authority to promote your brand. We make this easier by giving you an entire database of people to pick from.

Our database gives you access to journalists, bloggers and influencers. How do you decide who to reach out to? By finding out where the people in your target audience spend most of their time. After all, you’re hoping these media professionals will help you reach your target audience.

If your target audience keeps up with the news, then reaching out to a journalist would make sense. Is your target audience composed of millennials who respect influencer recommendations? Reach out to an influencer so that you can connect with these people. For a target audience that reads lots of blogs, reach out to bloggers.

Filter contacts using the things that matter to you
Use our powerful search engine to search for the best journalists in your niche. Don’t have time to dig through the database yourself? Simply tell us what matters to you, and we’ll give you a list of journalists who fit your criteria.

Using information such as your industry, your location and the media outlets you’re interested in, we can build a custom media list containing anywhere between 500 to 2000+ contacts. Submit your information and relax or spend more time on product development while we help you find journalists who are a good fit.

While we have made our media database easy to search and select contacts to reach out to, we also understand that some companies don’t have time to do this. Rather, these companies want a media list that can be used on short notice and on-demand. With your custom media lists, you can continue doing media outreach for your brand long after we finish working on your campaign at Pressfarm. What’s more, you now have a ready-to-go list of journalists who you can pitch whenever you have news to share.

Is the database global?
At the moment, our contacts are primarily based in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Even so, we’re widening the scope to include more regions. Since we work with clients all over the world, the upcoming country filter will help people like you to find the perfect media match in your region and beyond. 

How often do you update this database?
Pressfarm works round the clock to ensure that journalists’ contacts are up-to-date. We are always welcoming new media professionals to our database. While we strive to only work with updated contact information, we sometimes miss one or two contacts that may need updating. If you think a contact is out-of-date, you can let us know by sending us feedback through our live chat or emailing info (at) press.farm.

Can I save and export lists?
Our database has been built to be used on-the-go. Even so, you can also download mass email addresses from the database in .csv files. However, you need to be careful when doing this, because it encourages mass emailing. This might seem convenient to you, but in the media world, mass emailing is regarded as spam. Our PR experts have enough experience working with the media to know that personalized email pitches are always more effective than mass pitches. There is no world in which spamming will help you achieve effective media coverage. Trust us on that one. 
Can I save my search criteria?

When you’re only interested in working with specific media contacts, you don’t want to have to start a new search every time. Our database is designed to make this easy for you. Save your search criteria (including keywords and filters) so that the results you get match your standards every time.

Can I send personalized pitches from the database?

Absolutely. Our database is designed to make your life easier. In order to do this, we’ve equipped the database with an email distribution feature. Simply select the media contacts you’d like to reach out to, craft your email and hit send. You can pick from our pitch templates and personalize your email for each media contact, or draft an email of your own. 

How do I know who the new contacts are?

We get it. When there’s new talent in our database, you want to know so that you can reach out to them immediately. When we add new journalists, bloggers or influencers to the database, we will add an icon beside their name. This way, all the newbies will stand out in your search results.
