Publicize, the provider of PR solutions for startups, is today announcing the launch of new platform, Publicize Zero. With offices across the Americas, Publicize says that the new Publicize Zero will bring media coverage to millions of small companies all over the world.

Publicize Zero is built to provide a range of great free offerings to help all businesses conduct successful media campaigns.

“Publicize Zero is the latest in a line of innovative PR solutions that we have rolled out this year,” says Publicize Head of Product Xander Kahle.

“Publicize has moved beyond standard PR by making our services available to everyone at no cost. We aim to help businesses secure the meaningful media coverage they need.”

Businesses and startups can now sign up to use Publicize Zero and take advantage of all the materials they need to run a successful PR campaign.

Users of the new platform can enjoy an interactive step-by-step PR guide and other educational materials. They can also call and chat with PR professionals any time between 9-5pm EST.

The team says that the goal of the new product is to launch a platform that anyone can use for free to grow their profiles and social proof.

“Publicize Zero was built so that anyone, regardless of their location or prior successes, could grow his or her profile and media awareness for free,” says 500 Startups Global Mentor and company CEO Conrad Egusa.

“Our focus has always been to add on value and minimize risk for entrepreneurs – this new platform is an exciting and important step for everyone on our team.”

Traditionally speaking, PR is expensive. In the 2015 Holmes Report, the world’s largest 250 PR firms took fees of $10.7bn.  Figures like this are daunting to smaller businesses and startup entrepreneurs. To address this problem, Publicize’s subscription model has prices that start at just $399/month. Businesses can also enjoy an up to 100% money-back guarantee.

With the new platform, clients of the PR firm can take advantage of an interactive dashboard that will help manage their PR campaigns as well as direct communication with an account manager. The startup also boasts guaranteed media opportunities and 100% transparency with journalist communications at all time.
