How can targeted media outreach be more effective than a newswire?

Newswires typically work with a 'spray and pray' approach, meaning you're essentially paying for your press release to get almost no valuable impressions and relevant engagement.

The PR industry is moving towards targeting and customizing pitches towards smaller—and more importantly, relevant to your story—groups of journalists and media influencers.

With Prowly, you're sending your press release to people that are most likely to be interested in your story.

Using a media database and recommendations based on your press release, you can find the most relevant people or outlets. Next, send them personalized media pitches with your press release straight to their inboxes.


Flexible, transparent & budget-friendly pricing plans

We don't charge any membership fees or other annoying fees like including a logo, image or video in a press release.

PR Newswire charges a membership fee (which they waive for some promotions) and then charges additionally for extra images and other media. PR Newswire also charges separately for geographic distribution and certain media lists.

The best PR tool on the market

We tried a couple of PR tools but eventually chose Prowly and we are extremely happy with everything it provides - the features (especially brand journal!), customer support (very responsive), and the ease of use (all features packed in the great design and well-thought interface). I am pretty sure you will love Prowly once you try it!
