Likelihood to Recommend

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

Marketwired

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Marketwired

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.

IR Insight is the most robust mobile friendly cloud-based solution we've seen. The competition is catching up but we've been pleased with the pace of innovation in the product.

Return on Investment

Marketwired

  • Definitely no negative impact - and positive impact: we get to offer our clients additional services that we wouldn't be able to do without Marketwired.

  • Saves us countless hours of events management. Over the last three years we've gone from 2 sell-side analysts to 12 and more than doubled our IR related travel. IR Insight is critical in our day to day operations.
  • The integration with FactSet was a great addition...saved us $10K that would have been spent on a FactSet subscription.
