April 23, 2010 - PRLog -- Saluda, NC, April 20, 2010 — PitchRate.com now offers all its experts and publicists expanded options to automatically attach online press kits to every pitch sent to the media through its free media query service.

Previously, PitchRate.com allowed users to attach online press kits that were developed only with Gerber’s PressKit 24/7 online press kit technology (http://www.PressKit247.com). PitchRate.com now also enables users who have created online press kits with the InstantMediaKit.com (http://www.InstantMediaKit.com) and TheOnlinePressKit.com (http://TheOnlinePressKit.com) technologies to attach their online press kit to their PitchRate.com profiles.

PitchRate.com (http://www.PitchRate.com) is a free service that connects journalists with the highest rated experts. Journalists sign up at PitchRate.com, make requests, and view pitches in their inbox or online. Experts view the requests that are relevant to their expertise, and then tailor a pitch to fit the media’s needs. According to founder L. Drew Gerber, “The primary goal of PitchRate.com is to make journalists’ jobs easier. Our technology keeps them organized and saves time, allowing journalists to meet their deadlines, even on weekends and holidays. And if we make journalists’ jobs easier, experts will have better opportunities to connect with them.”

According to Gerber, 93% percent of all journalists prefer to get their information online. Gerber adds, “Now that our experts and publicists can automatically attach online press kits developed by a variety of platforms to the pitches they send out to the media, PitchRate.com is able to further its mission of making the media’s job easier.”

An online press kit is a virtual platform that contains a user’s bio, high-resolution photos, product images, media placements, and more — everything the media will need from a source. “What’s great about having an online press kit is not having to send attachments any more,” Gerber says. “The media is more apt to click on a link that houses everything than open a variety of attachments. An online press kit is an easy way to impress the media with your professionalism and show them you’re in tune with their needs.”
