Thank you all so much for your support, great feedback, and insightful questions during our ProductHunt launch in 2016! We've shifted to a membership model, which you can read more about below. We are no longer offering a ProductHunt discount, but we can assure you that our model is still many times more affordable than traditional PR agencies.

Process Media Outreach Campaigns

Over the course of four weeks, our PR experts will guide you through the entire media outreach process while you monitor our progress in real-time.

Campaign Timeline

We will work with you to make your story media-ready, identify the best journalists for your story, pitch it, and follow-up with anyone interested. On your end, setup is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Tell us your story

You tell us your story over the phone or in writing (press release or blog post).

We’ll use our story editor to turn it into a beautiful landing page for journalists with in-depth analytics.

2. Build your gameplan

You tell us who you want us to reach out to, and when.


We’ll find journalists that we've worked with who are right for your story, and send a plan over for you to approve.

3. Pitch your story

We’ll pitch your story and do everything we can to get reporters talking to you.

You monitor progress in real time from our dashboard and talk to interested reporters.

How much does Upbeat cost?

Annual Membership: $800/year (includes 1 Campaign)

Launch additional four-week Campaigns at any time for only $500.

Your quest for media coverage doesn't stop at the end of the four-week campaign because journalists do not work around your schedule. Retaining an agency to continue contacting journalists can cost as much as $20,000 a month. Upbeat's Membership improves your chances at media coverage over time by refining your stories and angles, identifying new media opportunities, and monitoring ways to act as sources for journalists.

Testimonials Here's what our clients think

As someone whose work draws a lot of press attention— from emoji to documentaries to books — I find it helpful to use Upbeat to supplement my own media outreach.

They are able to help me get in touch with journalists that I don't know myself. Some of these are smaller publications that can do high quality pieces, which is really important when you are trying to get the word out, as well as larger ones — like The Los Angeles Times.

Upbeat's innovative model is perfect for non-profits like ours. We work with Upbeat every month to get the word out about our events, programs, and awards aimed at highlighting the Latino leaders in our community. They are a critical partner for our media strategy.
