This Daily Mail sister title 'helps people save money and make more money', says Oxlade. 'Our strengths are news, analysis and predictions, but we also do step by step guides,' he adds.

Target the right journalist, as each decides their respective agenda. Pitching to the news editor probably will not do the trick. 'The follow-up calls asking whether we've received an email are not helpful,' adds Oxlade.

PR friendly score 7/10.
