JustReachOut automates building a list of relevant journalists so you can start pitching them right away
JustReachOut’s search engine crawls through thousands of recent articles to help you rapidly build a list of journalists who has written about topics related to your company. Our goal is to help you pitch journalists yourself because a) you know your own story and company better than anyone else and b) doing it yourself lets you create and keep the relationships with these journalists to keep the door open for more opportunities down the road.
We also use machine learning to return more and more relevant journalists and articles. As soon as you conduct a search, it triggers our crawlers to scan the web for more journalists who wrote articles containing your keywords.

The rest of their pricing plans include PR agency services where Publicize does the outreach for you so it costs a lot more.
JustReachOut provides you with proven prewritten templates to get more responses and features
JustReachOut provides you with prewritten pitch templates you can simply weak and send to maximize your chances of getting a response from journalists. They’re based on Dmitry’s (founder of JustReachOut) experiences helping hundreds of clients get featured in top publications from CNN to ABCNews.

At JustReachOut, we’re dedicated to helping you find every possible opportunity to get featured. And which journalists are even more likely to feature you than ones who have written about relevant topics in the past?

JustReachOut crowdsources the validation of email addresses - makes sure your pitch actually lands in their inbox!
Publicize keeps their journalist database private since they do the outreach for you. We provide you with the contact information for every journalist. Once we add their contact details to our database, we also keep checking to make sure they’re still working. This is important because journalists move from publication to publication a lot!
We also crowdsource the validation of their emails and let users notify us if an email doesn’t work. If you discover an email address no longer works, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll follow up with you within 24 hours with the up to date one. That’s our commitment to helping you pitch journalists as easily and effectively as possible!
Sometimes, we can also find the personal email addresses of journalists, which are far less likely to change. Landing in inboxes where you’re not competing against 1000+ work emails makes it more likely for your pitch to get noticed:
