Frequently Asked Questions about Media Lists and Press Release Distribution

What is a media list?

A media list (oftentimes called a press list, a news outlet list, or a press contact list) is a database of key media contacts who write or report about your specific topic areas.

They usually contain complete contact information for the individual, their title, email address, phone number, preferred method of contact, name of the media they work for, and (most importantly) the type of story they are most interested in reporting on.

How hard is it to compile and keep a media list updated?

As you can imagine, press contacts change constantly as journalists and reporters change companies, beats, and interests.

Keeping an up-to-date press contact list can almost be a full-time job – we know, that’s a big part of what we do for a living!

Why is it important to keep your media list up-to-date?

Having inaccurate information about the person you’re trying to get to report on your company or product is key. Press releases sent to the wrong contacts tend to go directly into the trash, or worse.

Why is it important to have influencers on my media list?

Influencers play a huge role in today’s society. Because they steer the thoughts and actions of large or powerful groups of people, a single conversation or post by an influencer can literally make or cost you millions.

Plus, huge numbers of people now get almost 100% of their news from online sources. That’s why eReleases offers online press release services and includes influencers, bloggers, and other online media in our media lists.
