Yes! Depending on your level of access, Muck Rack’s Editorial team can import your media lists and recreate them on the platform. Once uploaded, any updates or changes made to Muck Rack’s database will be reflected immediately on your lists including new titles, beats, media outlets, and contact information. If any of your contacts don’t meet our criteria to be added to the main database, they will be added as Custom Contacts for your team. Custom contacts are owned solely by your organization and will not be maintained by Muck Rack’s Editors.
To request media list imports, message the team via the chat button in the bottom-right corner of your screen while you're logged in to Muck Rack. Attach your media lists as Excel spreadsheets or Google Sheets with as much of the following information as possible:
- First name*
- Last name*
- Media outlets and titles
- Twitter handles
*Denotes mandatory fields. If your team only has first and last names included in an import, but no emails, please contact your Account Manager for more information on this research project.
Imports now include notes! As long as your notes are in one designated column, Muck Rack can add them to journalist profiles and make them visible to all team members.
Please include any additional information on how the list should be organized on your account. For example, a media list with multiple sections or documents can be uploaded as one master media list or as individual lists.
We can generally import media lists within 24-48 hours, assuming they are well-formatted. If there are many lists (10 or more), or they require a lot of formatting, the import may take a few more days. Muck Rack's Customer Success team will notify you if the turnaround will be longer than 48 hours.
