Refining your media requests from ResponseSource

By Daryl Willcox

3rd May 2013

ResponseSource Enquiry ServiceThe ResponseSource Enquiry Service has evolved a great deal since its beginnings in 1998. Today it offers requests from a wide range of media, from traditional print and broadcast to online media outlets and bloggers, distributing over 23,000 requests a year.

With such a broad mix PR professionals sometimes find the full feed of journalist enquiries rather daunting, so we provide the ability for users to set their own filtering preferences.

For example, you could filter out all requests from bloggers (or conversely filter out everything except blogs if that is your specialism) or exclude case study requests. These are just examples, there are many more filtering options, all designed to help you get more of what you want, and less of what you don’t.

To set your filtering options log in to the ResponseSource preferences page.
