Our New HARO Publicity Alerts Are Live – Choose Your Package!

We launched our new, advanced HARO Publicity Alerts packages!

Just think: four years ago, getting a business in the news was a very exclusive job. You had to be a PR pro, who pitched journalists in the hope of getting your story picked up and published. As a good PR pro, you would, of course, work hard to improve your story’s chances. You’d do your research; create a great press release; target the right journalists at the right time; build relationships to earn trust. Nonetheless, there was always an element of fishing to it: no matter how good your preparation, at some point you had to sit back and hope for a bite.

And then HARO arrived and flipped the whole thing on its head.

But before we go on, here’s HARO founder Peter Shankman to tell you about the new features.

So nowadays, you don’t have to be a PR pro to get your business in the news. You simply sign up for HARO’s Publicity Alerts, which tell you exactly what stories journalists are looking for, right now. You get three daily emails – featuring hundreds of queries from journalists a day– and when you see a request that matches your story or expertise, you jump on it and write a reply, introducing yourself.

PR pros love HARO too, because it’s goodbye guesswork; hello publicity.

Now, we’ve made it even better. Today, without spoiling or changing the free-to-use HARO model that our 100,000 subscribers (and 10,000 active journalist users) know and love, we added three packages – Standard, Advanced and Premium – featuring a range of  power options that really take things to the next level, including:

Filtered Alerts: set up keyword preferences to filter your alerts and find your matches faster


Personal Profile: create a profile to help journalists recognize you as a good fit for their story at a glance

Head Start: get alerts early to give you extra time in crafting your response

SMS Alerts: alerts of upcoming opportunities delivered to your mobile phone


Online Searching: search our entire database for opportunities anytime


The new features come in three different packages that you can choose from according to what suits you best. They’ve just gone live on our HARO website alongside the free package – which remains unchanged and unspoiled – so take a look today and see which would be most effective at getting your company into the news.

See you in the headlines!
