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.

PR Newswire

PR Newswire is a great tool to have if you have a small PR team. Maintaining distribution lists are time-consuming, and subscribing to a media monitoring service can be expensive. Even if your company subscribes to a media monitoring service, it does take some time and effort to maintain distribution lists. So using a service like PR Newswire helps take some of the grunt work out of public relations work and makes it easy, and quick, to distribute your press release to a wide audience.

Cons

  • More detailed reporting.
Teri Thompson profile photo
  • The search function does not typically bring up news that is relevant to me or the search terms
  • Press releases are frequently removed after publication, leaving us with broken links or missing URLs
  • I wish there was a way to set my preferences for language, location, topics, publication date, etc. If there is, it's not intuitive to set up

PR Newswire is an industry leader and gives the user the ability to send out a press release, to a wide audience, very quickly and easily. The pricing is on par with other companies (perhaps they are a bit higher) but they do send useful "visibility" reports after a release is distributed, which is helpful when trying to explain ROI to C suite leaders. You also can email or fax your own distribution list, which is helpful and reduces the need for a media monitoring service

Alternatives Considered

Affordable. Easy to use. Effective.

PR Newswire is slightly more difficult to use than Business Wire, but it often picks up news that other platforms miss. PR Newswire is my primary newsgathering source, and Business Wire is my secondary. Used together, I think I'm able to cover all the bases.
