We chose MediaHQ to bolster our media relations because it's easy to use and because we wanted a broader database of journalists. There are over 6,000 journalists working in Ireland and MediaHQ has contacts for all of them. We use it to build and manage lists, to find journalists and issue press releases. Their topic search makes it easy to build a list and the list library is very useful - you can also modify these. The customer service is great too. You'll always get a friendly voice at the other end of the phone if you have a question.

The number one selling point for us was the up-to-date contacts base. Knowing which journalists are covering what sports and what news stories is really useful. I like the actual tool, that I can hit one button and send a release out to everybody instead of trying to do it through email, it makes life much easier.
