Newswire is well suited for press releases and gaining necessary PR for corporate news, sharing company announcements, and getting your brand message in front of decision-makers. One thing that is great about the platform is the speed of publication. The approval process is very quick and that is important for busy professionals like myself working in the public relations space.

The people at Newswire are always so helpful and easy to communicate with which is part of the reason that we come back year after year. We had trouble with expired credits that weren't supposed to have been expired and they helped us get our account back on track within a few hours. The turnaround for PR reviews after submission is also one of the reasons we have been a long-time customer, it is very easy to submit, make updates and then get it all set up for release all within a couple of hours.

Newswire is well suited to quickly distribute messaging and press releases to help announce company news and initiatives. Their review process is timely and, on occasion, has pointed out areas that needed to be clarified or better worded after I have submitted a press release to them for distribution. Over time I have found that due to their pricing model, Newswire is better suited for larger-scale press releases vs. local only distribution.

As mentioned, I use Newswire to distribute our press releases. Newswire is well suited for us when sending press releases because it is an easy-to-use platform, it allows me to select a specific industry to target, and I have the ability to add other services based on each individual release. We are a small company, so the number of press releases we send is fewer than most - but hopefully, in the future, our company will grow, and we will be able to utilize Newswire more frequently.

Newswire is an excellent tool if you want your company news to reach millions of people. It's ideal for press release distribution, and I'd also recommend the targeted campaigns -- there are hundreds of publications to choose from, including some well-known ones. Reporting is great and paints a clear picture of your reach.

If you need to get a press release out on the wire with targeted local distribution, Newswire is excellent at this. It also shines in getting national distribution. When we have done national distribution we have also seen some international pickup. It is a good way to get your press release out there.

I believe that Newswire is best suited to a startup business that is looking to take its media relations and marketing to the next step. If you just want to put a basic press release out there for the sake of doing it, there are cheaper options that'll accomplish that goal. However, if you want people to actually read your press release and find it, you need a more robust platform like Newswire which has greater SEO, greater analytics functions, and distribution channels that'll reach the press.

Newswire is great for smaller firms with limited marketing departments. Their team can be a great addition to support consistent content development (which can be leveraged well beyond the press release they craft), SEO, and lead generation for sales teams. For larger firms, or those with PR specialists working full time already, the better scenario would be to leverage the platform for distribution and focus on the sales/lead gen side if you can.

If you are looking for an easy-to-use press release distribution service with a low barrier to enter at a reasonable cost, Newswire is a good option. You can target industries and networks fairly simply and the analytics provided are solid. They do not have quite as large a distribution network as some other companies, but generally speaking, you can target who you need to target with Newswire.

Works well for us, a small creative services agency, that needs access to an affordable media distribution list for company news releases, primarily for SEO purposes. We write our own releases, so I can't comment on those services, and we have not explored any other plans, so I can't comment on more full-service PR options.

Newswire provides much more than press releases for us - they have a whole team of young professionals that are eager to provide amazing customer service. They are organized, and strategic and are truly experts in their field. With every press release, I feel supported with each step - from brainstorming interviews, copywriting, and launch of the PR, to earned media outlets. Also, I enjoy the feedback and monthly update sessions as check-ins to make sure we're aligned.

Newswire is a good option if you need to build awareness and/or SEO for a newer/smaller name company. You'll usually get re-published by at least content farms, so that helps for inbound links and SERPs. It's less helpful for this if you're already an established company, or your news is so notable that it'll get placements without the service. If you don't have substantial news or know how to write a proper press release, don't expect it to get you published anywhere other than content farms.

For orgs sending regular brand updates, this is a perfect service to utilize to help blast those announcements to a broader media listing. If you are providing a full media packet typically, this would be a great place to host them as well. For smaller orgs sending maybe one or two PRs a year, from my experience my team found it hard to get traction and attention vs a traditional hand-sending method. It was a nice way to subsidize those efforts, but not as effective for my team.

Newswire is my go-to platform for press releases. It's utilitarian, easy to use, and gets the job done. It's been around the block, so Newswire definitely has a strong and trusted network of media brands. The cost for a small press release is pretty reasonable for its distribution level. Most of the time, I can rely on the fact that a relatively well-known national or a local station will pick up our news digitally, though it doesn't always receive inbound traffic I wish it would. I rely on Newswire to get my message out there, so if the topic is strong enough, traditional press releases are still great outlets.

It's useful for big companies that want a press release. But for smaller companies trying to generate traction, it won't hurt at all, and even will maybe help a little, but it's hard to quantify the value you're getting with paid promotion.

For publishers with a large or small newsroom, it's great to use content from Newswire to add to the organic reporting of the organization. I don't see where Newswire would not be appropriate. It's a great option for writers and publishers.
