Saluda, NC (PRWEB) May 26, 2011
PitchRate.com, the free online service that connects journalists with top rated experts, has launched two new free tools to help businesses, authors and entrepreneurs get found by the media.
PitchRate's article resource center for journalists allows people seeking free publicity to connect with journalists who use PitchRate's free news query service every day.
The service provides a "one-stop shop" for journalists seeking expert sources and bylined articles on the topics for which they are searching, and for experts seeking free media contacts, says L. Drew Gerber, creator of PitchRate.
"We help people get found on the Internet," Gerber says. "We all know PR is a game-changer, but what you may not know is the fast way to get media coverage is to have the media knocking on your door."
Experts can post their bylined articles along with profiles featuring their name, photo, bios, and keywords to help the media find them. Articles from experts link to their profiles, making it easy for journalists to find sources and articles on a wide variety of topics.
"Getting free publicity, making free media connections, and getting found by the media has never been easier," Gerber says. "It's as easy as signing up at http://www.PitchRate.com. "
