Muck Rack Fast Fact

You might be wondering...why do I need Muck Rack? Let us tell you.

There's never been more potential to tell your story to the public, yet most tools haven't fundamentally changed since the first journalist directory was published in 1952. Press releases are aimlessly blasted out. Journalists are spammed because of antiquated media databases. PR pros get little response and can't measure the effectiveness of their work. 

Muck Rack is the solution to these problems; trusted by top-tier journalists, global PR agencies and Fortune 500 companies, in addition to many boutique agencies and entrepreneurs.
