PitchBox Media Launches the First Monthly Public Relations Subscription Box Built for Press to Discover Brands and Stories

Posted on July 23, 2020

San Diego, CA (July 23, 2020) – As the world continues to evolve and industries pivot in light of COVID-19, PitchBox Media™ launches with a new way for brands and agencies to elevate their communication strategies. As the first subscription box service built for journalists, PitchBox Media’s themed shipments solve myriad challenges faced by members of today’s press and publicists alike, according to company CEO, Michelle Metter.

“Public Relations professionals and journalists are both stretched thin and are being asked to create more with less,” explained Metter. “PitchBox Media’s solution cuts down on time and builds connections through a vetted selection process that is controlled by the journalist so they get only the trends they are interested in, with curated products that meet their editorial objectives.”

For journalists, the process is streamlined. Members of the press subscribe to PitchBox Media and select the themed boxes of interest. The box comes during the selected months filled with products that represent that theme’s biggest trends along with a research report and references to help make filing the story and meeting deadlines timely and efficient. Subscribers have access to an online member center, which contains detailed information on each product, downloads, images, company information, and a trend report specific to the given theme. Subscription to PitchBox Media is free for qualifying members of the press. 

For publicists, agencies, and brands, PitchBox Media helps cut through the clutter. Because journalists subscribe and select the themes they want to receive, brands are guaranteed their product will be seen and considered for an upcoming editorial or content inclusion.

PitchBox Media opened subscriptions in June with journalists from notable outlets joining including Architectural Digest, Better Homes and Gardens, Bustle, BuzzFeed, CBS, Condé Nast, ESSENCE, Food Network, Good Housekeeping, Good Morning America, Hearst, Hello Giggles, Lonely Planet, Marie Claire, Meredith, New York Magazine, O, the Oprah Magazine, PureWow, Reader’s Digest, Real Simple, Refinery29, Rodman Media, SELF, Seventeen, Southern Living, StyleCaster, The TODAY Show, Us Weekly, WWD, and many others!
