Muck Rack

MuckRack is best at getting a good picture of one person's interests and what they like to write about. It helps me build very specific media lists. I don't spray and pray with my outreach. Everything is very targeted and MuckRack lets me find exactly who could be receptive to my story.

Muck Rack 10.0
Based on 1 answer
I'm sure it's fine. I have never used their customer support, not even when a list does not save. I just figured there isn't much they can do since it was a search. They do have live chat to get answers quickly but most of the time I'm working on lists after hours (since it's a lot of admin and I can do it front of the TV) and no one is available.

Alternatives Considered

Muck Rack

Muck Rack tends to have contact information for a wider range of individuals, and the search feature in the Muck Rack interface is very easy to use. It has a lot of different filters that enable specific and effective searches. I do wish though that I could save location based searches more easily.

Return on Investment

Muck Rack

  • It's hard to measure ROI but I can say this: I have discovered and build relationships with media I may have had a hard time locating before. MuckRack has probably increased my efficiency by 50 percent and doubled my effectiveness.
  • I haven't looked a media databases in about 2 years but it is a much more cost effective media database than the big, traditional ones that everyone else has.
