We’ve added a page on the Dot Star Media service that gathers together an individual journalist’s previous requests. This includes requests sourced from Twitter and any that a journalist has submitted directly on our journalist enquiry submit form.
Why previous journalist requests are useful
Looking through earlier requests can help you better understand the journalist’s typical style and the subjects they have already covered. This is especially useful if you’ve never pitched the journalist before and can help you improve your pitch.
How to see previous journalist requests
To view a journalist’s previous requests click on the ‘Previous Requests’ link in the alert email.
If you are receiving your media request alerts in Slack or Microsoft Teams click the ‘View previous requests’ links that appear at the bottom of each alert.
How to find previous journalist requests in your Dot Star Media account
Log in to your account on dotstar.media and go to the Enquiry Search or Recent Alerts page. Then just click the profile picture or name of any journalist to go to a list of their previous requests.
We hope this feature makes Dot Star Media even more useful for subscribers and journalists. Do let us know what you think.
