SourceBottle is an Australian-headquartered online subscription service designed to connect media experts with journalists and bloggers. Launched in 2009, SourceBottle has become one of the leading PR & communications disruptor platforms operating in Australia, the UK, the US, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and Singapore.
SourceBottle has gained mass recognition in the public relations and media industries for offering a free-of-charge service to help media professionals and bloggers source subject matter experts on relevant subjects, along with case studies for stories.
The origins of SourceBottle came from Rebecca Derrington in 2009. She started this unique company with the goal of creating an online worldwide PR platform that would provide free access to subject matter experts. Since its inception, the platform has served as a bespoke connection platform for journalists, bloggers, and other professionals in the communications industry who frequently seek out subject matter experts, case studies, and stories in response to their 'call out' requests for experts on issues relevant to the stories they are covering.
The company, which began its operations in Australia and New Zealand, has since expanded to include the United States and Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Singapore being its latest addition. SourceBottle, as of 2022, has a vast inventory of over 50,000 sources and experts subscribed who receive the customized daily emails, each filled with call outs for subject-matter experts.
SourceBottle is a freemium service that allows users to subscribe for both free and premium services. The free service sends out up to two emails per day with call outs to sources who have signed up to the service, allowing them to reply and be quoted in the media.
