Swordfish Communications Launches New Service to Help Organizations "Help a Reporter"
New HARO Monitoring Service Can Help Small Businesses Achieve Big Media Results
Help a Reporter Out (HARO), founded by industry veteran Peter Shankman, is a three-times-
Swordfish's HARO Monitoring service is geared toward non-full-time clients, and includes vetting queries, alerting users to those that are appropriate, helping to craft responses, and submitting them as the PR representative of the organization. It also includes monitoring for usage and providing electronic versions of any resulting stories.
"Everybody should be taking advantage of HARO, but not everyone has the time or the know-how to reap the rewards," says Gary Frisch, Swordfish Communications' founder and president. "We've had great success exploiting HARO for the benefit of our clients and our own company, so we're excited to offer those same great media opportunities to those who aren't already working with Swordfish."
HARO Monitoring from Swordfish costs $99 per month, paid every three months. Swordfish Communications cannot guarantee coverage, nor a minimum number of opportunities in any given month or subscription period, as requests vary and are at the complete control of HARO and its journalist community.
