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.

PRWeb

PRWeb served it's purpose for Strouse by sending news out to new audiences although this never generated an overwhelming amount of traffic to our website. If you are only interested in issuing PR and getting your name out there, then I think PRWeb is a fine solution.I find PRWeb less appropriate if you really want to drive traffic to your site through a press release in hopes of creating sales. During the selection process I would be interested in knowing what sources my PR would be submitted to. Is it being submitted to relevant websites? Will links be provided on all of these websites? Ask yourself, will these websites benefit my companies SEO?

Pros

  • Increases search engine optimization.
  • Builds awareness.
  • Bumps up social media engagement.

  • Cost: It's much less expensive than some of the other services. When you work with smaller businesses, they can't always afford $1000 to issue a press release on a wire service.
  • It's easy to use. The interface is fairly simple to figure out and guides you through what you need to include - headline, photo, pull quote, etc.
  • It helps get your news out on the search engines, which can help more people see it. For example, one client I was working with sent a release via PRWeb and it helped them get into talks with a potential reseller.

Cons

  • More detailed reporting.

  • I wish you didn't have to pay for every extra thing. Sometimes it comes off like the people with the most money will be the ones that get their news seen.
  • It would be nice to geo-target globally. Right now, PRWeb only lets you select certain major MSAs in the US.

We are unlikely to renew PRWeb because I feel that the costs outweigh the benefits of the service. For a company like ours (small business with about 60 employees) we don't have enough press that warrants monthly coverage. We may look at using PRWeb on an as needed basis, 3-4 times a year for single submissions, but that would be the extent of it. I could see PRWeb being much more beneficial for large companies that are constantly needing to issue press.

I have only required support from PRWeb on two separate occasions and they handled my issues without any problems. I was a bit confused at first not sure if they had received my requests but shortly after I received responses and was able to move forward with my press release.

Implementation of PRWeb required very little of Strouse. It was a quick process and we were almost immediately ready to use the platform.

Alternatives Considered

Affordable. Easy to use. Effective.

PRWeb stood out against all of their other competitors because their staff was much more willing to answer questions I had about their product.

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.

  • PRWeb helps us get our news out. That's all positive! We've had many reporters pick up our news releases without us having to personally reach out to them on our own.
