Likelihood to Recommend

CyberAlert

This is a great tool for larger size companies that will have a lot of media tracking they need to do. It appeals to stakeholders involved in PR, data analytics, and helps decision makers know what will have the most impact and where their marketing dollars should go!

PR.com

I often recommend PR.com to clients on a budget. There are some organizations, like non-profits, or very small businesses I work with who just don't have the money to spend on a pricier press release distribution service like Businesswire. For those clients, PR.com is a good alternative. You can use the free version - or elect to spend a little money to include hyperlinks, increase distribution, and so on. But there are options - and that is a good thing.

Cons

CyberAlert

  • Personally I didn't see any. Though I know my boss had a few calls with their team to get the daily reports formatted and presented just the way she wanted them. The team took a few tries to get into the swing of what she was asking for, but they were more than willing to put in the time and effort to customize the reports for her.

PR.com

  • It's a little dated as far as the interface. They could update that.
  • It's mostly cut and paste - and fairly intuitive, but it won't let you continue if you miss checking some categories off - that may not be entirely clear to newer users.

Alternatives Considered

CyberAlert

I think it's a bit more developed and professional looking. It's best for bigger companies.

PR.com

As a newswire Cision is great and certainly has its place in any marketing plan. But newswire services are not what most companies who are seeking content distribution to regularly attract and engage their best audience need.

Return on Investment

CyberAlert

  • I wasn't at the top of these discussions but, I did help make monthly reports that went directly to the CFO and CEO that used these analytics to show how our corporate communications office was doing and all the work we had done for the past month. This is a way to cover yourself and show that we had done a lot of work and good work at that.

PR.com

  • I believe PR.com has been a big help for my small business clients who simply can't afford hundreds of thousands of dollars to distribute press releases. It has saved them a lot of precious budget dollars.
  • It helps clients achieve greater visibility for their news/press releases. When more potential customers see the news, it can help them win more business.
  • I can't think of anything negative. I sometimes recommend coupling distribution on PR.com with distribution on another free service like PRLog.com to cover more bases.
