My URL - You can change your profile URL to what ever you want by going to My Profile>Settings>My Profile URL. Your profile page will then be located at pitchingnotes.com/profile/myURL.

Links to your coverage - When you add a media pro, be sure to include any links to coverage that the person was able to secure for your client. Each review (along with the link) will then appear on your profile.

Newsfeed links - You can include links in the newsfeed when updating your status. Simply type it in and it will be shortened automatically upon submission, just be sure the link starts with www.

Media list search - There are two options for searching for media pros. There is a simple name search at the top of every page, but there is also an advanced search under Find Reviews>Advanced Search. From there you can search for media pros based on Outlet, Beat, DMA, or Media Type.

Groups - Setting up a group allows your community to interact at a more personal level. Every group has its own photos, videos and event sections. There is also a discussion board and file sharing feature  in every group you create. Make your group public or private, which requires an invitation to join and view content.

Events - Set an event anywhere in the world and meet other members face to face! Manage your members, set an invite number limit or even send out invitations so that they can RSVP to your event. You can control attendance via private event or even limit the number of available seats.

Favorites - You can save media pros to a favorites list on your home page. Just click on the heart shape at the top of the media pros profile.

Compare - There is a "Compare" check box on each media profile. You can save specific media pros that will appear in a toolbar at the bottom of your screen. This can be used for quick reference any time you are on the site.
