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.

Marketwired

If you want to guarantee 5-8 pieces of online coverage for a news story, then Marketwired is worth using. It's cost-effective and the news often appears on news syndication sites that wouldn't otherwise feature it (Yahoo Finance, Canadian Business, Bloomsberg etc.).If you want to get news coverage on the radio, in print, and on TV, then you're still better emailing it directly to the news outlet and picking up the phone. It's much more time-intensive, but a lot more effective.

Pros

  • Increases search engine optimization.
  • Builds awareness.
  • Bumps up social media engagement.
Teri Thompson profile photo
  • Easy to use dashboard with pre-selected newslines and industries.
  • Quite a comprehensive results dashboard that details the outreach of where your releases go.
  • For non-online releases (they just recently changed this), an editor will call you to verify your releases and they are very detailed in reading your article for any grammatical errors and other recommendations.

Cons

  • More detailed reporting.
Teri Thompson profile photo
  • They recently changed that all online releases do not need verification. So there isn't a physical extra person screening the submission.
  • The topics of our press releases are very industry specific (healthcare and medical) - based on the results dashboard, the newlines and 'corridors' that they are sent out to seems generic and arguably irrelevant.

Alternatives Considered

Affordable. Easy to use. Effective.

I find Marketwired comparable to slightly better than CNW and Business Wire. For smaller companies listed on the TSX Venture, CSE or OTC, their money is better spent on TheNewswire.com.

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.

  • Positive: We get a handful of contacts and leads from our press releases, but overall nothing else. Our clients like the to see press releases of our events that reach out to a wider net of the online audience too.
