What sets our media list apart from the rest?
We go beyond the simple details that large media databases such as Cision publish, to give you the complete picture, not just a piece of the puzzle.
We don’t load the list with small-time bloggers. We look for the real deal to give you the best ROI on your PR campaign.
Up-To-Date Media List
We contact editors, producers, bloggers, and writers every season to find out their specific feature details, deadlines, lead times and contact preferences for the current year.
No more keeping track of the revolving door of newsrooms. If an editor leaves, we find their replacement ASAP!
Our competition isn’t really competition because they don’t focus on the nitty gritty.
We find editors, producers, and bloggers for each media outlet who actually cover products! We make sure to always find the right contact for new products in every category.
“Thank you Gift List for helping to streamline the gift guide pitching process!”Stephanie Driscoll
How It Works
Let Us Vet The Media For You
We call each media outlet to find the right contact for each product category. We ask what they are looking for and how they want to be pitched so that you use your time doing what you do best: Pitching!
Get Data In Real Time
We upload each contact as we speak to them, so that you have as much time as possible to pitch before their holiday deadlines. We make updates if deadlines are changed. Just log in to see everything you need.
Pitch As You Go
Don’t miss a deadline by regularly logging in to find the latest updates on long leads and short leads. Save your pitch notes in your Gift List accounts to track who and when you’ve pitched and schedule follow-up.
What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“Most of our contact with the press is specifically about gift guides. We tried a very robust PR software solution to source contacts, but there were a few problems: we didn’t need all the features, it didn’t focus on pertinent gift guide information, and it costs thousands of dollars every year. The Gift List provides distilled useful information about publications and contacts that has landed MistoBox in more than 10 gift guides.”Samantha Meis
“The Gift List has consistently provided gift guide details and contact information to augment our holiday outreach initiatives, helping us to be successful in our holiday program execution for clients.”Jane Fainer
“I have been using The Gift List for the past four years. The team at the Gift List does all the heavy lifting in terms of identifying the appropriate contacts for gift guides. It is a very tedious, time consuming process so to have the contacts given to me is more than helpful and allows me to spend my time pitching and securing placements rather than researching contacts. Last year I was able to secure placements in USWeekly, Family Circle, Sound & Vision, The Dallas Morning News, Huffington Post, Brit + Co and The Today Show, to name a few, through Gift List contacts. And it does not just end at holiday. They also do all the research for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Back to School and more. I would highly recommend this service to anyone that does any gift guide pitching throughout the year. It’s worth every penny and is constantly updated to provide the most accurate results. Focus on your expertise— pitching—and let The Gift List team focus on their expertise—the research!”Stephanie Driscoll
