Likelihood to Recommend

24-7 Press Release

Well suited for increasing digital presence for traditional and online businesses or brands. Can't think of any situation where smart use of 24-7 Press Release isn't relevant.

It's well suited for searching for news that is timely and immediate, especially business news, which is important for my position. Not sure where it wouldn't be appropriate to use, though I will say that because of its direct competition with PR Newswire, it's not always the first wire site that I check.

I gave it this rating because the Business Wire website is very user-friendly. Being able to navigate the platform on my own without technical assistance made it possible for me to quickly and easily submit news release distributions, which can be critical at times, such as during hurricane season when we need to get information out to the news media and our customers quickly.

The team members are very quick to respond and do their absolute best to help resolve issues quickly. I also like that I can have one of them proofread my press releases before they are distributed. It always helps to have another set of eyes on the content. There have been a few times that they've caught an error that nobody else did so it's worth the extra couple minutes that it takes!

Business Wire is very easy to implement. This isn't a requirement, but it's recommended that you begin to set up saved distributions for different clients so that you don't have to start over from scratch. Rather than doing all this work on the front end, you can just do it as you send out your first piece of news for each client.

I prefer PR Newswire over Business Wire. I’ve gotten more attentive customer service, better pricing and increased presence with my target media outlets.
