What do you like best?

We were looking to do outreach for increase the affiliate partners for our brand. We tried experimenting various ways but everything appears to be time consuming. So we tried using this tool - Pitchbox and it really helped us save a lot of time.

This is by far the best tool for prospecting leads. We also schedule multiple outreach emails in the form of sequence using this tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We dislike a few things about the tool:

1. First is that you do not have an option to buy monthly or quarterly plan. All you need to do is buy annual plan.

2. Second is the emails that you find using this tool are not very authentic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There are so many different options for different types of lead searches, variety is a good thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's a little complex? You definitely need to educate yourself and how to take best advantage of it. Thankfully there is tons of content that will help you with all your questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding leads to link build on new sites. Pitchbox really helps your outreach email seem at least some what personalized rather than a mass e-mail that is being sent to everyone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pitchbox is extremely helpful for prospecting opportunities. They give you hundreds of opportunities to look through based on keywords. It used to take me half my week to find the right blogs to pitch to, now it takes seconds. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are certain things you can't go back and do after you create a campaign. For example, you can't go back to make the campaign recurring. Also, while the software is easy to use, the layout could use an update. I'd also like to see a mobile app. That would make sending emails so much easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to focus on writing personal emails. From those personal emails, I can then build relationships with blog editors and owners. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

One of the best things about Pitchbox is its unique ability to find social influencers and bloggers to target for content and contact, taking out the hardest work when it comes to finding who and what to share. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can be a pricey service, but in my opinion, if your budget allows it, it's a must-have! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're hunting for a product that can truly open new doors to target audiences in specific markets, this is the software for you. I can't imagine doing this work without the assistance of such a unique product. The ability to structure communication, plan when and what to say, and who to know, is beyond what I expected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cutting out the work of finding social influencers, bloggers, and other high-profile users is incredible – and lets you and your clients get to the audiences that need your work on a mass-scale quickly. I strive to get this kind of work done in international markets or places where we haven't explored before as a marketing consultant – but I know it can be easier and with Pitchbox it is.

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Pitchbox is the list of opportunities they provide. This is an area of outreach that I really needed help with, and their lists are pretty good. I usually get a decent handful of opportunities from each list. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing that I have a big problem with. The layout is a bit fussy and complex for my taste, but others might love it. Personally I'd love a simpler layout with less business going on, but nothing stands in the way of actually using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just jump in and use it. The support team is helpful, especially during setup. Even if you have trouble at first, you'll learn as you go. I've gotten pretty good results from using it alongside my own methods. It is useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pitchbox is saving me lots of time researching relevant opportunities to reach out to. It's really nice to put keywords in and get a large list of people to contact. I also love that they include the domain authority, spam score, and other helpful information with each list. Even if I was finding my own opportunities, those are extra steps I'd have to take, so I appreciate that the info is already there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the Automation within Pitchbox and the team's Feature Enhancements that they keep rolling out!

I love how we can get all kinds of data from this and create campaigns based on users past interactions/behaviors.

I also love how responsive the team behind Pitchbox is. Seriously, need a column in a report... just ask, if you can make a use case for it they will add it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Support can be rocky depending on the problem, also no mobile app and the site is not usable on a mobile device. I'd love to manage my campaigns while on a subway or in a line... simply responding to an email or matching an email would be cool. But then being able to run reports, or research specific outreach opportunities would be awesome. My staff work on a different time schedule and need help when I'm not in the office... it'd be awesome to be able to help them from my mobile device. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One of the things Pitchbox doesn't offer is tracking on open rates etc, but the reason for that is they do NOT leave a footprint in emails sent from pitchbox... this is amazing as it helps in deliverability and the response rate is WAY more important than open rate... so go on already, use Pitchbox!

Being able to send emails and follow ups that look like emails, not newsletters, in an automated fashion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes thee emails form differently than intended. The test will look good and then the real email will have unintended indentations. Having to turn the schedule back on after an autoreply. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pitchbox was an excellent addition to our agency. It allows us to segment each area of outreach into what we call "buckets", which allows us to have people of varying levels of skill with different specialties. Clients are no longer paying $150/hour for someone to review blogs and decide yay or nay. Our initial results were outstanding, and our clients were thrilled with the results and reporting capabilities. If you care about defining a scalable process for linkbuilding/outreach, Pitchbox is absolutely the right tool for your agency. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The page load speed can be slow in different areas, and that can be frustrating at times. The workaround I've found is to preview sites in separate tabs rather than in the iframe. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's pricier than some other options, but if you're process-driven, this is the only tool that really supports that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows us to track each worker's efforts individually, and we've been able to break down linkbuilding into a scalable process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Projects are easy to set up and run.

You can both find prospects and contact them in one place.

You can build automated email chains.

Helpful insights in analytics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Picking up trial is a complex process, I guess there's a reason for that, but it's hard to recommend it to someone as you cant just try it.

Pricing is above average. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just use it. Time to first results is very short, and you don't even have to train your employees to use it, it's that simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly looking for guest posting opportunities to build backlink profiles.

I loved that you can find relevant sources by keywords, contact them and get results all in one place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They offer excellent customer service. A representative will walk you through the ins and outs of the platform and answer questions promptly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pitchbox has the appearance of being easy to use, however the set up is fairly complex. Our entire team had trouble learning the layout. They also offer pre written contact emails. While this seems useful, it's actually only going to increase the chances your press release or other info is deleted immediately by the recipient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It contains tons of contact information for publications and other important outlets. They basically scour the internet for the info. Unfortunately, that often means you have to cleanup or verify contact info. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Everything is in one place. I used to perform a similar task with 2-3 different pieces of software. Like mention and reply app, which are still great and my go to for other tasks. The best part is that it looks up emails on all websites that fit my requirements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. But I only use a small part of it I guess setting up work email as the primary was a bit hard. Other than that, just for this small task, it's pretty good once you figure it out, which isn't that hard if you're familiar with similar soft. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go through onboarding thing that they offer, It helps a lot. And as long as you know how to write a good email, you're set. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pitchbox has an easy interface, theres lots of space for different campaigns and projects, lots of room for your to customize your message, who gets it, and when they get it. The option to either manually manage your outreach or automate it on an opportunity by opportunity level is a huge plus. Additionally, you can set the number of automated contact attempts for any particular opportunity (url) you are going after and customize the template for each attempt. One of the best features I have come across is their live support, they have not only helped me address usability issues I have come across, but also have been a very personable and useful resource on how to improve my outreach and use their set of tools to their full potential. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few technical issues with Pitchbox in the area of general usability. It doesn't greatly interfere with the function and purpose of the product but makes things a little more restrictive and less convenient. One of the drawback is the inability for the user to reorder outreach contact order when you set the opportunity (your outreach url) to automated outreach. The system isn't currently able to detect auto-responders, message undeliverable, etc, which stops the outreach process since Pitchbox interprets it as a response. Such opportunities need to be manually restarted to the next listed ordered contact, this can be a time consuming task, along with pairing the usually unmatched accompanying email.

There are multiple different types of setting up a campaign within a project, currently there is no way to bulk upload opportunities once a Website Import campaign has already been created (you will need to add them manually one-at-a-time). Currently there are issues with email addresses randomly disconnecting if you are using Office365 as your ESP, this can easily be reconnected though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get to know the product and use the Live Support, they will bend over backwards to make your experience with their software as useful and beneficial as possible! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

E-mail campaigns often require a highly targeted and personalized approach but there are often times when you are looking for volume and a broader strategy. Pitchbox has allowed us the flexibility of both outreach approaches and gives us a level of message customization we haven't found in other similar products such as Buzzstream. Pitchbox offers the scale and level of customization we needed with our outreach. It allows automated contact attempts using different templates (there is an unlimited amount of templates you can create) and currently there is an unlimited number of opportunities you can upload to any given campaign.
