They delivered fast, and even created a new industry specific list at my request.
Overall, I was very satisfied. :)
I got 2 lists from Jonapr (tech and health) for an upcoming launch and was really impressed with the quality.
The 30$ are definitely worth the investment - it would have taken me ages to put together a list like this. Recommended!
We purchased a few of your media lists, and they're working phenomenally.
We have meetings with Vox, Washington Post and the WSJ after using the lists.
Jona is so point and just what I needed, when I needed it. I checked out the site but didn't see a media list for my specific niche, which was arts and culture. I reached out and Jonapr delivered super fast, and did I mention how responsive (and friendly) they were? Affordable and worth the invest.Niesha Kennedy
Mona and Jit have created quite an affordable solution for DIY PR. The quality of their lists is quite high compare to alternatives and the $30 per list will save you more time (and money) than trying to compile the list yourself.Hiten Shah, FYI
