Build Distribution Lists

It's important to reach the right media recipients with every release you send. Using your Newsmaker account, you can target only the media outlets and personnel that matter to you.

How it Works

Click on the "Build a List" button on your dashboard or the "Create New List" link under the Distribution Lists tab inside your account to access the list builder. Here you'll see four boxes that will help you create a distribution list that matches your needs.

First, you'll want to choose the geographic area that you'll want to reach. Click on the "Narrow Your List by Geography" box to expand it and select the state, regions, or counties that matter to you.

You can also opt to reach only certain types of media, including print (both daily and non-daily), broadcast (TV and/or radio) and internet.

Add your personal contacts to your custom distribution list by clicking on the "Add Your Own Contacts to Your List" box. Here you'll be able to choose which uploaded contacts you'd like to include on your list.

Lastly, you can opt to target ONLY highly specialized reporters and editors with your list. Selecting this option will only deliver this content to media recipients covering a specific beat (ie. Education, Sports, or Health).
