Overall Satisfaction with GlobeNewswire by Notified

We used this service for publishing feature updates and general news about the company. This allowed us to try to spread the word about what we were doing and possibly get into the different major news outlets for general company exposure. The scope of our use case was limited to publishing digital releases in the US.
  • The software is in depth
  • Responses to releases are prompt
  • Responses by customer service on release questions are prompt
  • While detailed and in depth the software is difficult to use, especially for first timers
  • They changed their name and system several times over the course of the year making it difficult to understand even what system to log into
  • I never heard from our account representative until it was time for us to cancel
  • Publishing press releases
  • Press release review for copy mistakes
  • Digital distribution
  • There was no actual positive impact overall
  • There was no SEO positive impact
  • There was no increase in traffic or brand awareness

This service might be more well suited for large corporations with a lot of press coverage that they need to get out on a very regular basis. GlobeNewswire may be much less appropriate for smaller organizations that cannot commit to the annual spend of the contract and adhere to its strict nature and aren't sending out regular releases. Note that they did not work with us on contract flexibility once signed, so just be sure that you will fully utilize the service and really stay on top of the cancellation date because if you miss it, you will be automatically locked in for another year. Thus for smaller companies it will be best to stick to an a-la-carte service that will be flexible and work with you on your changing needs. That is definitely not GlobeNewswire.
