I have been using HARO now for several months — I even pay for the additional service — and am very disappointed.
I am a writer that has extensive experience in many areas — parenting, business, food, marketing, tools, family, marriage, promotion, tech. So I thought HARO would be a great place to plug in and help reporters with stories that I can add value to.
Over the past several months I have replied to dozens of postings — for some of them, I would become so excited because the slant was perfect with my background. So far I have not had a single reply.
My guess is, that writers don’t want to talk to writers.
I may cancel my HARO membership. It’s not a bad service, but I don’t think it’s something that needs my kind of contribution.
