Public Relations Tools for Freelancers to Increase Efficiency and Reach
The PR Cavalry
The PR Cavalry partners with Journolink to create a freelancer friendly suite of tools
Freelance PR professionals have an ever expanding range of PR Tools available to them to increase their efficiency (and therefore profitability) and crucially better equip them to close the gap between their offer and fully fledged agencies.
Many of these tools are free or partly free and initiatives such as PR Stack which is a crowdsourced list of tools and user comments is a great help to Freelance PR in choosing the best fit for their client list.
One of the most impressive and trusted by the PR and comms communities is Journolink and we are delighted to announce that we have partnered with Journolink to create a more affordable suite of services which allow Freelance PR to have complete control of their campaign management and media outreach for clients
Bringing the JournoLink Agency Platform to Freelance PR with a PR Cavalry profile provides an affordable way for them to undertake and manage their PR assignments more efficiently.
The platform comprises a range of services including intelligent press release distribution, campaign prompts, press room management and access to journalist contacts, where a PR freelancer can manage all their clients without hassle, in one place, and without the need for a big budget.
Key features of the platform are:
Unified View – Individual personalised profiles and dashboards for each of your clients, all under your control through one master dashboard. Simple process to add new clients, and automated activity reports for monthly reviews for individual clients saving you time and streamlining your client management.
Media Requests – Whether it’s direct requests from journalists, tweets through Twitter, or input for future articles, Journolink keeps you posted on the requests for quotes and interviews that are right for your clients.
Instant Distribution – JournoLink distributes content to the right journalists, or use your own lists. Media lists, with full contact details, are available if you need a list but haven’t got one. See who’s showing an interest in your release, so you know who to follow up with.
Prior Knowledge – JournoLink provides an up-to-date must-have calendar of upcoming news, events and awareness days. Saving you time and sparking inspiration to take to your clients to develop new angles and campaigns.

Along with the creation of the Freelance Buyers Club which offers Freelance PR with a complete profile on our site with discounts on a range of media and business support services, we are making our platform not just a way for clients to find PR freelancers with exactly the right mix of skills, but also helping freelancers to increase their profitability, either through savings or by increased efficiency.
