Overall Satisfaction with Newswire
We use Newswire to distribute press releases. It is easy to use, and the pricing is reasonable compared to competitors. It does not have as wide a reach as other distributors but we are still able to get press releases into the networks that are most important to us and at a lower price than others offer.
- Increased brand awareness
- Referral traffic
It is very simple to use. The platform is straightforward, and even a novice user should be able to navigate it pretty easily.
Newswire provides a good mix of affordability and reach. Some of the bigger players have slightly more reach, but you pay much more to put out releases. Some of the smaller services have much smaller networks and though the price is lower, you don't get much out of it. Newswire is a good middle ground.

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.

Evaluating Newswire and Competitors
Yes - PRdistribution.com was replaced by Newswire. Newswire offered a better network and was easier to use. The price points were similar for the two products, but we found that Newswire was the superior offering. We were very pleased to have made the switch and we have used Newswire since that time.
- Product Features
- Product Usability
Price was important for us, and Newswire offered the best value at that price point. Compared to other platforms at a similar cost, it is also a very easy-to-use platform that does not take a long time to get comfortable using, so there is value almost immediately upon signing up.
I would not.
It is a very simple product to get started using, particularly for press releases. I have no used the other functionality so I can't say for sure how easy or difficult that might be, but my guess is that the way the platform is built makes it easy for anybody to get started.
