"The most bang for your buck distribution"

What do you like best?

iReach is like PR Newswire's cheaper, more efficient brother. I like that it's totally self service and doesn't require you to constantly talk to a rep to get your release out (usually means less upselling too).

What do you dislike?

As with all PR distribution services in the last few years, the media lists are becoming less and less valuable. My company is moving towards scrapping PR distribution lists altogether in favor of direct outreach and simply using our blog to publish news. Most of the contacts on these lists are irrelevant to our industry, and there are no specific target lists with iReach (as there are with PR Newswire).

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

For large public announcements, it is the easiest way to get into the inboxes of a large audience quickly, and cost-effectively. Our last announcement got picked up by a major language service publication just through iReach publication.

"A great PR tool"

What do you like best?

Being a social media guy, iReach resulted in higher social engagement including retweets and likes. Social sharing is so simple which is what I need in a social media tool

What do you dislike?

I'm cheap but after looking at a ton of similar products this is the one I wanted the most. The price was reasonable for a platform of this type

Recommendations to others considering the product

IReach give your message the most visibility for the ROI. If you are looking to expand your social reach, iREach is for you and I don;t take that recommendation lightly.

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

The ROI of social is so important and iReach helped us increase our reach (see what I did there?). I also needed a tool that was easy to use.

"Easy to start and use"

What do you like best?

It's easy to manage on my own with no hassle. We found the distribution of our releases as easy as 123, and we definitely appreciated their extensive distribution channels. As we used a bit of an interactive content, we found that views and engagement went up dramatically. Sharing the content using the pre-selected twitter channels was also quite useful.

What do you dislike?

Their website looks a bit outdated and not very engaging. The basic plan offer is quite limited.

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

As the target audience increased in size, iReach helped us to send our releases on time and with better-than-expected results.

"Great service"

What do you like best?

It is very cost effective and worth the money. It increases social media engagement (RT's and likes) not just following.

What do you dislike?

It is a little expensive, but worth the money. While it is not the company's fault, PR distribution lists are becoming outdated to blogs and social media.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you want before buying into a PR service.

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

This service increased our social media reach and was simple in doing so.

"Fast and easy to use software."

What do you like best?

How quick it was. I need to move fast with my job and iReach is very nice and streamlined in the way it works and is designed.

What do you dislike?

The website crashed on me once. Not sure if that was an issue on my end but I was almost done on there and lost what i was doing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth a test run and then, if the cost is worth it, can be a valuable tool.

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

The problem solved and benefit gained are the same. I'm able to increase reach and exposure for my clients that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to.

"iReach "

What do you like best?

IReach was indeed a great way of dispersing information to multiple channels at once in a timely manner. Support was there when needed.

What do you dislike?

Using Google Analytics we did not find that this service increased any visibility to our website. We mainly received a lot of soliciting after the fact.

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

Our expectation was to drive visibility and traffic to our website and social media and get our name out there in our industry. We realized that it is beneficial for us to start off doing this on a smaller scale by using other software.
