"GlobeNewswire"

What do you like best?

GlobeNewswire is a great application to use in connecting employees to everyday, up-to-date, real current events throughout the globe. It's a great source in all types of businesses for sales, marketing, and research within various industries

What do you dislike?

I am not a fan that GlobeNewswire does not always pertain to news and information needed and neccary to every individual involved in its usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Being able to have had experience with GlobeNewswire, it did not entirely pertain to me based on my profession but was included within overall company software based on Sanofi Pasteur's requirements. I think that it makes a great tool for those involved in the company's pharmaceutical sales and marketing aspect, especially being a globally recognized company involved in various international affairs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So far, there have been no issues with GlobeNewswire in connection with usage for business. It has effectively utilized important tools to incorporate news and important sources to allow indivuduals to be as up to date as possible and make business decisions as a result.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

The ease of use. Didn't need much instruction and can pick it up easily. Intuitive feel and user friendly interface. When I switched from PR newswire, there was no transition period, and I learned to use it in an hour. Another great service is the excellent customer support. Whenever I have an issue or question, the support team is only a call or email away. Very responsive, even by email. Even if I had a strange request, they did their best to find a solution.

What do you dislike?

Seems to have issues particularly during quarterly earnings. Had on occasion trouble uploading press release and for releases that needed to go out immediately from last minute request from clients, caused undue stress when there shouldn't have been any. Didn't seem to have this issue in PRnewswire. However, customer support took care of this. Wished the system was consistent all the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy to use and learn. Responsive customer service

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Distribution of press releases. Sending out press releases can be stressful process as it needs to be correct every time and for certain clients it needs to go out exactly at the time you set it up to distribute and some times on a moments notice. GlobeNewswire makes this whole process easy to do and I no longer have to worry about if I had set things up correctly. Even for last minute submission request, I seem to be able to do it quickly and within the hour, the press release gets distributed.

"GlobeNewswire"

What do you like best?

It's a great PR tool. A PR blast can get traffic within minutes - and the posts are always featured on Google News and other major search engines.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing bad that I have to say. The only thing is that there are other platforms out there that offer almost the exact same service as GlobeNewswire, so I feel like this platform should try and differentiate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like I mentioned before, I think GlobeNewsire needs to differentiate itself from all the other PR tools on the market. Therefore, maybe provide more tips on when to release news that will create an impact? Or how to maximize exposure?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've basically been able to reach a global audience and do great PR with this platform.

"Nickled & Dimed"

What do you like best?

I liked speaking with the editorial team. That was the best part of my experience.

What do you dislike?

I was given an estimated charge, including the extra $150 charge for being over 400 words but under 500 words. Then, after the editorial team made no changes to the copy (no words added or removed), I was charged an extra $150 for sending out a release with 500-600 words.

When I contacted GlobeNewswire to get the charge corrected, I wasn't given a reason for the extra charge and they would only consider refunding it if I signed up with them as an agency for a large number of future releases.

I then asked, respectfully and politely, if getting this extra $150 was worth losing my future business and the senior sales director, Lucas, didn't return a response.

I don't want future surprises eating away at my agency's profitability and there are a lot of other options out there for me to use.

I tried GlobeNewswire because I used to use Marketwired in the past and they were great to work with. Marketwired was purchased, to my understanding, by Nasdaq (who owns GlobeNewswire) and so I tried them.

That was my mistake and I'll only make the mistake once. I've moved on to another service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you use GlobeNewswire, confirm with editorial what the final price will be for distributing your release, and don't sign up for a multiple release package until you've used them once or twice.

Additionally, compare the reach of different distribution services. GlobeNewswire charges a premium rate, but it didn't feel like premium reach for my client.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have clients who need to send out press releases, so I need a go-to distribution service that gives my clients value (price isn't as important as getting good value for whatever I spend on a release).

"GlobeNewswire Review from PR Professional"

What do you like best?

The upload process is very quick. It is easy to make changes if needed for the client.

What do you dislike?

I feel that security is not very tight especially against competitors. Other service usually send a code or something to verify once they call you. Since a lot of this is getting blasted out publicly and to a wide range of audiences, it is vital that there is no room for error. I feel like it is way to hack or someone to make a mistake.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider alternative competitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefit I noticed from GlobeNewswire is that I like competitors more. My client is currently waiting for the contract to be up so they can switch back to what they had before.

"Press distribution solution"

What do you like best?

Global Newswire was easy to set up initially. It lets you identify target audiences that you want your press release to get in front of. It has a good distribution network and shows up on many other websites.

What do you dislike?

The price is a big expensive. I felt like there are other press release distribution sites that were cheaper and achieved the same reach.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company wanted to get the word out about news happening with our company. Our industry is very niche so it felt like what we payed to get this pushed out did not amount to the results we were receiving.

"Globe Newswire is like PR distribution for dummies"

What do you like best?

The customer service is top-notch! I love that someone calls you to double check that everything is good to go, and their responsiveness is probably the best of ANY company I've worked with. They are also very transparent when it comes to costs, which I appreciate.

What do you dislike?

Nothing -- I've actually been extremely satisfied with this service.

I recommend using GlobeNewswire whether you are a seasoned PR veteran or someone just starting out. The service is incredibly helpful and easy to understand.

"Great platform, the same as every other platform"

What do you like best?

I enjoy GlobeNewswire because it easily and accurately allows companies to distribute press releases.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find a defining feature of any press release distribution service that separates one from the other.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is an easy way for companies to distribute their news, and although I enjoy when press releases are sent to me. It's easy enough to find a release on this wire.

"GlobeNewswire Review"

What do you like best?

I enjoy using the media contacts database. I am able to find relevant media contacts based on location, publication and topics they write about, which helps me to build targeted media lists quickly. The wires are also less expensive than other options I've used in the past. I like that they offer unlimited images and contacts, whereas I had to pay a high price for these items with other PR distribution services.

What do you dislike?

I don't think our press releases are syndicated on as many publications/sites as they were with other wire services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using a different service for wires if your budget allows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to target relevant reporters and journalists with our news for increased press coverage.

"GlobeNewswire - Press Release Distribution Service"

What do you like best?

Nasdaq gave us a good deal on switching from PRnewswire due to our company's IPO last June.

What do you dislike?

I mean, for what it is, these services are all pretty similar. Nasdaq does offer some additional attribution and performance metrics that could be more granular, but I don't think that's specific to their service in particular.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best to use their wire distribution services in conjunction with their PR services - our company doesn't have need for the latter, but the benefits are clear: consolidation, one bill, one contact, global brand.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wire release distribution

Benefit of existing working relationship with NASDAQ (we're listed on their exchange)

Press release distribution to generate awareness of business announcements.
