Big admirer of IH and the indie hacker movement. A few weeks ago I was inspired by IH to create something, so I created https://pitchfront.com (this was actually built inside Bubble.is, for those of you who don't code).
The big issue for me is whether or not to launch. I don't lose anything from launching, other than time + energy, which is valuable in itself. But I don't want to spend time on something people won't like.
Essentially, you'd pay ($0.75c) to get in touch with a journalist, but with the guarantee that your message is read (if it's not read within 7 days, you get a refund).
One difficulty it getting the supply of journalists. I sent out some messages and had about 30 different journalists sign up, so not a whole lot of supply, but perhaps enough to start?
Is this concept something that would be valuable to anyone?
