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.

Business Wire

Business Wire is great for large companies that need to quickly make an announcement, widely distribute a news release or for publicly traded companies, share financial earnings information as required by law. However, the high cost per distribution and additional fees makes it not a good choice for smaller businesses or for announcements with a limited scope, such as just one city.

  • User-friendly website - I always found that the Business Wire website was easy to navigate and I could find what I was looking for easily. This made setting up my distributions a breeze.
  • In-depth reports available - the metrics and reports available about a distribution are available quickly and provide a great overview as well as great details.
  • Lots of choices for distributions - this allows users to really get their news out to the right media outlets, whether by industry or geographic location.

It's the best service we have used. We have tried a competitor and everyone prefers Business Wire.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Affordable. Easy to use. Effective.

For the services we generally seek when we engage Business Wire, it's effectively interchangeable with PR Newswire. It becomes a matter of preference. The other news distribution platforms generally don't return as much value in terms of visibility, be it through SEO or possibly social channel sharing. We use Business Wire because of existing relationships, but also because of client preference.

Return on Investment

  • Positive awareness building on a global scale.
  • Increased attendance to a benefit for a university.
  • Built awareness for a non-profit event for teens at risk.

  • Because we counsel our clients before spending their money, they fully understand what Business Wire can do for them and what it cannot do. SEO, news tied to stock symbols... aspects that drive traffic to a client's website. Those are where there's good ROI.
  • The only negative impact Business Wire has the potential to deliver is to the bottom line given the cost of the service.
