  • Business Wire is an important feature that it keeps on updating the contacts and media content.
  • It continuously tracks the movement of the media persons we are following.
  • It is a very simple tool and navigation through this tool is also easy.
  • Its integration needs improvement and there should be more integration with the other tracking tools.
  • Its reports are not advanced and elaborative.

  • This is a primary value aspect of Business Wire's offerings.
  • Reach to a wide range of media.
  • Post-release reporting.
  • Cost is generally a barrier to using a service like Business Wire.
  • Actual results yield. The releases do not truly reach reporters who matter to the announcement.

  • User-friendly website - I always found that the Business Wire website was easy to navigate and I could find what I was looking for easily. This made setting up my distributions a breeze.
  • In-depth reports available - the metrics and reports available about a distribution are available quickly and provide a great overview as well as great details.
  • Lots of choices for distributions - this allows users to really get their news out to the right media outlets, whether by industry or geographic location.
  • Expensive - distributions cost hundreds to thousands of dollars, with a higher cost for longer releases and additional fees for multimedia content like photos or videos.
  • Limited number of media outlets specifically in Florida.

  • Business Wire allows you to have one of their team members review the copy before it is distributed, so that you can have a final set of eyes on the content.
  • Business Wire allows you to customize your distribution. You select the state, region, etc., the key words and topics, allowing you to send out a press release that fits your needs and your budget.
  • Business Wire offers clear reporting, showing where the release was picked up, metrics for these sites and more.
  • Business Wire allows you to pre-schedule a press release in case you are unable to send it out at the exact time that the client needs the news to go out.
  • There have been a few times when a minor grammatical error has slipped by myself as well as the copy editors but it's very rare for this to happen.
  • The cost can get a bit high if your press release is long (as price is partially dictated by length) or if you want to add a logo, image, infographic, etc.

  • The site has a very specific search function that makes it easy for users to sort through the many press releases put on the site each day, making the process easier/more efficient.
  • The "Media & Journalist Tools" tab is helpful for myself and my colleagues, specifically, the RSS feeds to make sure we're staying on top of business happenings.
  • I don't use the "How-To" section, though I know folks who have to learn more about writing press releases, and I've heard it's very helpful.
  • I think the overall UX and design of the site can be improved.
  • Users could benefit from an even more robust "advanced search" function to sort through releases.
  • Business Wire should make its "Earnings" section more prominent. That's such an important part of business media and could really be improved on this site.

  • Separates content based on industry or subject matter
  • Organized chronologically so you can keep up with what you missed since your last visit
  • Press releases come in a variety of languages
  • I can't find a way to always filter out non-English language press releases
  • The search function doesn't typically bring up relevant content
  • I would love to see more photo, video, or additional multimedia content included in the press releases, where applicable

  • Proofing - Business Wire proofs every single release with great precision, and calls you to let you know if they think anything looks like it might be a typo. They are extremely thorough and also check with you about the way you want images or video laid out with the release so that the final presentation is perfect.
  • Customer Service - Business Wire has some of the best customer service I've ever experienced. They are available 24 hours a day, and always have someone manning the phones to answer your questions, proof releases, and make sure your release gets across the wire at the right time.
  • Interface - The Business Wire site is very easy to use, and saves previously used information and images like logos. This is standard for most wire services, but Business Wire does a good job as well.
  • Reach - BW reaches a very wide range of outlets, and its relationships with VentureBeat, Yahoo! and MarketWatch are great. Clients really appreciate seeing their releases in those publications.
  • Price - the main draw back of Business Wire is that it is quite expensive.
