I wanted to let you know about another great online resource I’ve been using for a few years. It’s call PRWEB, www.prweb.com
PRWEB is a “free” Internet-based, press release Newswire. I have found it to be a great service. Previously I used PR Newswire and BusinessWire. They are excellent services, and not tremendously expensive. But I’ve found PRWEB to be just as good, if not better, in many circumstances.
Sending out a basic press release is free, although PRWEB does request “donation” support. Even a small donation gives you access to value-added services, to further distribute or track the results of your press release campaign. A number of them are well worth it.
There is no excuse not to write press releases with such a great, inexpensive service available. It’s one of the highest return activities a high tech company can do, as I’ve stated before. And the cash outlay is practically nil, so even the thinnest market budget can issue a press release in a very professional manner.
There are several other similar services available. PRLeap (www.prleap.com) is another I’ve heard is good, although I haven’t used it personally.
So make sure you don’t ever use cost as an excuse again to prevent you from writing and publicizing your new product news.
