  • Media Contact Database.

  • Sorting and identifying industry specific publications.

  • More economical press release packages available.

  • In terms of finding specific contacts, it does a good job.
  • It finds mainstream media hits well.
  • One issue we ran into with media tracking was that when it came to smaller or more niche media, it had a hard time tracking hits from those outlets for our clients.
  • Building larger media lists was time consuming and cumbersome.

  • It provides a Newswire option at a very reasonable price.
  • The pricing is in a sweet spot for many startups who would want to use it.
  • It hits up all of the key media outlets that you would expect a wire service to be connected to.
  • Would be nice if they didn't charge extra for a release that has is submitted the day before it is scheduled to be posted.
  • The option to upload a word document instead of copy and pasting all release content into a form would be nice addition.
  • Uploading social media links a representative of a client is not so easy.

  • I am not pleased with the service.
  • We pay a great deal of money for the service and twice they have delayed releases to question our organization's information accuracy. Most recently, they questioned a grant receipt amount; they previously posted with no issue 2 years prior. I met their demand and had the information verified. Hours later they did not send the release delaying our reach impact. No reason why.

  • 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.
  • PRWeb is very particular about certain types of releases. For example, when a company makes an acquisition, PRWeb requires authorization from both companies before they'll issue the release. This can cause a slow down in the timing of getting the news out - and it creates a hassle when they both have to fill out paperwork. This could be streamlined.
  • It doesn't automatically save your work. For example, if you are staging a press release, you have to remember to save it - or it disappears. This has happened to me multiple times.
  • You have to pay an additional fee to get the news out the same day. Otherwise, you can choose for it to go out the next day. It requires you to plan and think ahead - and many companies don't do this.

  • PRWeb is good for publicly distributing your news announcement.
  • PRWeb can also help you write or edit your press release if you need help or aren't able to do it on your own.
  • You can target certain geographical areas or business sectors for your news to be distributed to.
  • 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.

  • PRWeb is fairly easy to use to issue press releases. They have a review process that will look over your release before submission although this review is not going to catch spelling and grammatical errors.
  • I've seen our press releases posted on industry relevant websites thanks to the reach that PRWeb provided us.
  • Although I never used it because we subscribed to a different service, PRWeb allows you to create and send email blasts within their OutMarket marketing platform.
  • I enjoy the ability to add a quote call out in the release.
  • I also like that images or videos can be added to the release.
  • While I was surprised with how well PRWeb could publish our content to many different outlets, I was disappointed that some of these outlets were not including links back to our website even through links were provided in the initial release. I found that on the most important sites where my PR was posted, that no links were sent back to our website.
  • PRWeb could do a better job at providing analytics for the release. They present some good info, not a lot, and the data that they do show you is not presented cleanly. I was most interested in the # of reads, impressions, and clicks my release received, and while they provided this information it was not in depth enough so that I could identify where the majority of this data was coming from.
  • Besides clicks, reads, and impressions, I was also interested in where my press release was being posted online. They provide an extensive list, but this list is so long and full of low quality websites that it is difficult to find the high quality sites that your PR is posted to.
  • More enhanced reporting dashboards.
