How FeaturesExec alerts you to changes in the media

We recently introduced a third type of email alert to the FeaturesExec Media Database.  Here’s a summary of the three types of email alert, all of which are designed to let you know about potential media coverage opportunites without having to be logged-in to FeaturesExec.

1. Media Outlet Alerts – new media outlets by sector

Receive an email when we add a media outlet in sectors that you cover. You’ll receive a short email with a link to the full media outlet profile on FeaturesExec. Set these alerts up by pressing the envelope icon on the category search page.

2. Feature Planner Alerts – for feature opportunities

These alerts have served the PR industry for over 15 years. We’ll tell you whenever we find a forward feature opportunity that matches the keywords in your Feature Planner profiles. We add over 100,000 feature opportunities a year.

3. Campaign Alerts – whenever we update your watched outlets

Staying on top of changes at media outlets can be hard. FeaturesExec can help corporate level subscribers by sending you alerts when we make changes to any titles and contacts that you would like to watch. Set up campaign alerts by pressing the ‘Add to my alerts‘ button on the profile pages of your key outlets and contacts. You’ll receive a daily summary email alerting you to changes we made in the last 24 hrs to any titles or contacts included in your ‘My Alerts’ watchlist.

We'll tell you when we make any changes to a watched database record.

As always, let us know if there’s any other functionality you’d like to see on the FeaturesExec Media Database.
