Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • When we only sent out a few releases for small clients, ROI was inconsistent.
  • When sending out for larger clients, ROI is usually easier to achieve.
  • Labor cost savings helps to increase our ROI on most campaigns.

  • Our agency needs a reliable solution for distribution of press releases. PR Newswire has served that need.
  • While newswires are generally a necessary evil, the agency doesn't directly incur costs. There's no real impact on ROI outside of being able to deliver this service for clients.
  • There's been a positive impact based on the ability to report impressive results, but we as an agency usually temper the numbers by explaining what they truly mean.

  • I've seen a press release issued on PR Newswire show up in Google searches, which is valuable to most companies. That may be a limited-time type of benefit, however.
  • If you can't get stories pitched/published about your news, PR Newswire will at least get it out there for you. While it's a press release issued by the company, it will help disseminate it widely. That can help drive traffic and sales.
  • I think it can be expensive, which could negatively impact a client's budget. When it's $1000+ to issue the release, that seems like it could get pricey pretty quickly.

  • PR Newswire saves us from having to maintain our own distribution lists for press releases
  • PR Newswire automatically sends all our press releases to a list of our beat reporters that we keep on file with them so that we don't have to spend time doing that
  • PR Newswire makes submitting edits to our releases easy

  • Return on Investment - the PR Newswire report features make it easy to show a positive return on investment. These reports give me a quick snapshot of how the release was distributed, as well as a list including all the links.
  • Time Savings - PR Newswire's user friendly interface, reporting features and customer support make it quick to use and it saves me time versus other competing programs I've used in the past.

  • ROI is difficult to calculate in my company's specific industry, but we do know our visibility has increased when we send out a release via PR Newswire.
  • We send out a relatively small number of press releases a year, so we know when we send out a report if our target audience is receiving it.
  • With Google and other search engines being the primary way people research information about company's today, we know that when we do a press release via PR Newswire that release will "live" indefinitely on the web, so we know our press release will go much further than the initial distribution.
