Why do you need a CRM for press releases
When you have a big announcement or you're looking to promote something important to an audience, press releases and publications can help spread the word. However, as simple as that sounds, press releases involve a tedious process: notifying multiple media agencies, contacting reporters, and preparing announcements across social networks. To ensure this process goes smoothly, we've built a ready-made CRM template that will suit the needs of your business and PR team.
A CRM template created just for press releases
Managing your projects and clientele couldn't be easier. Bigin's ready-made CRM template brings together all the stages of issuing press releases—laid out neatly in your pipeline—and provides various modules to store supporting information. And not only does Bigin fit your start-up team perfectly, but it's effortless to use. Bigin is your best bet if you have a relatively small workforce. Take a look at what it can do.
Everything you need to track your projects
Get the maximum benefit from the applications you use. We put together the right modules and figured out the optimal way to store your client information.
The Projects module lists all your press release projects. Because it's a pipeline, you can easily distinguish projects that are in the initial stages of ideation and assess how far they have to go until they're reviewed and announced.
Keep up with your ever-growing list of clients. In order to see them neatly arranged in stages on your pipeline, you need them all to be safely stored somewhere. The Clients module is where you'll find every client you've pitched, negotiated with, and signed—which simplifies the process of issuing press releases.
Bigin gives you the flexibility to work with individual projects or an entire company—or a mix of both. This module makes it simple to track all your clientele information.
Keep a list of all your releases and publications so you never have to scramble for details. Monitor it all from start to finish.
Set up tasks and events, make calls to your clients, and host and schedule video calls and meetings—all within Bigin.
Stay on top of your performance so you know just how much you've been crushing it and how many projects you've landed. And—what's more—you can even create your own dashboards with a variety of customizable charts and tables.

For a solopreneur like me, Bigin was a dream come true! I have tried Pipedrive, Close, and other CRMs, but couldn’t justify the expense, and the free tiers of other products simply lacked the features that truly made them useful. But then along came Bigin! Everything I need, and affordable. Thank you so much Zoho for making a product that helps solo operations and small businesses!
