About

The Pitch Network is a free CRM built uniquely for journalists like you, powered by the leading PR Management (PRM) platform, Propel. Start saving time and headaches by managing your story pipeline from sourcing to publish day, all in one place.

We know many journalists receive upwards of 200 story pitches every day, and it can be impossible to sift through the noise or streamline the reporting process. But what if you could receive targeted source options and manage all your PR contacts in one centralized hub?

Gone are the days of hastily scanning Twitter or your email inbox for sources at the last minute, trying to figure out where an email thread left off. The Pitch Network enables media professionals to quickly and easily research, find and manage all story sources in one place, optimized specifically for the reporting workflow.

To provide new sources on an as-needed basis, the Pitch Network uses an AI mapping algorithm to deliver relevant story sources from a community of thousands of PR professionals.

Track

Story management just got a whole lot faster and better. Get organized with a “story funnel” made specifically for journalists to manage your reporting progress and source status all in one place.

Source status:

Seamlessly keep tabs on where your source correspondence leaves off. Maintenance statuses include:

clock
In correspondence with source
calendar
Interview scheduled
edit
In progress
send
Sent to editor

And what about making your deadlines? Opt to receive new source tips up to a certain date, and if the right contact is not provided by that date, you can either choose to cancel your source request or extend the deadline beyond initial specifications if the story lends itself to flexibility in the publishing timeline.

Story management just got a whole lot faster and better. Get organized with a “story funnel” made specifically for journalists to better manage your reporting process and source status in one place.

Use searchable directories to revisit any story tips you’ve previously received or requested:

document
Source Management Directory
Visit your source management page to see all sources in one spot, and search for specific sources from all those you’ve previously been in contact with.
task done
Source Request Directory
Use a searchable directory of all of your previous source requests based on topic and a personalizable index of all the source connections you receive.

And finally, take advantage of “source limits.” The Pitch Network will not unleash a flood of unwarranted emails about source requests you don’t need. Keep your sanity by limiting the number of source options you receive based on personal preference.
