"Very easy to use for PR submissions"

What do you like best?

Their platform is easy to use to send out press released which was our main use. However, we noticed their Newsroom product which was something new to us. We never had a newsroom prior and saw the immediate benefits once we got our setup. It's an added cost but seems to be worth it as we now have one central location for all our company news, announcements, events, etc.

What do you dislike?

Specifically for their newsroom product I'd like to see more customization options. We were able to edit header/footer but still would be great to get granular and add in our own css/html. Maybe it's possible but it wasn't readily seen. Aside from that their pr distribution and submission form was easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their platform is easy to use for submitting PRs and they have additional tools and products like the newsroom product that we found useful. I have not tried anything else like their media contact db product or monitoring but going to try it out.

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

I was able to quickly and easily submit a PR that was urgent for that day. Their editorial team actually got back to me within minutes of me leaving a vm. So that was a big plus. Additionally their newsroom product was a bonus for us as we now have a showcase for all our company news.

"Professional service and quality work."

What do you like best?

The Newswire team is an absolute professional in the field of PR. I use them to handle my whole press campaigns and press releases when I do new product rollouts.

What do you dislike?

They have a lot of options. I don't always have time to utilize everything I'm able to do on the website, but that's more me than anything on Newswire's part.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd suggest just skimming through the Newswire website to see what all they offer. Before you decide to really go all in with them call one of the reps and have them explain exactly what they'll do for you. Make sure you know what you want and what sore of results you're after.

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

Newswire's services takes a whole lot off my shoulders when it comes time for a news announcement for my company. The greatest benefit is not having to worry about these factors myself that would otherwise cost time and resources. I can focus on my product and how it's being received by the customer.

"Newswire allows for mass outreach"

What do you like best?

I enjoyed the service's ease of use and consistent updates on the status of the press release (views, which media outlets have picked it up, etc...). The pricing is also extremely reasonable (though it is a little complicated).

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that many of the basic functionalities I needed for the service added additional cost. The price was still reasonable enough to not dissuade me, but I would prefer it if services such as choosing when the press release is put out were incorporated into the base price for the sake of simplicity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Initially a little bit confusing, but the company has great customer service that walks you through the process step by step, so definitely reach out to their team.

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

We used Newswire to get a PR release out regarding a portfolio company's recent success. It helped increase brand recognition of our company and bring positive publicity.

"Very Happy Customer in the Healthcare Industry"

What do you like best?

We used to pay more for practically the same distribution before we found Newswire. Plus, they have that industry lists that help target the healthcare space for our news. So far, we are happy.

What do you dislike?

We don't have anything bad to say from our experience. We are just waiting for additional responses from media

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before making any purchases, we read the reviews to see how it compares to others. This was no different. We hoped to get the same service that others received and we approve. Our overall experience was god and their support team helped answer my questions when I needed it.

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

I was able to manage the company's PR by myself. Before, I would have to run it up to my boss and then send it over to legal. It was an all day ordeal. Now, I can just share the draft to my team and get approvals all at once. Managing our PR is simple. plus that newsroom feature is very cool.

"Delightful, affordable PR solution for SMBs"

What do you like best?

Newswire has been instrumental in helping us stay within our PR budget. As small business, we needed help in getting our name out to our customers and the PRs have been great in generating new leads for our business. They were very helpful in explaining all of our PR options but we only needed the distribution for now. When we have more funds to expand with their others services, we will give it a go.

What do you dislike?

National distribution was too expensive for us but the distribution we got was good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a small business, definitely talk to someone on their team. They were helpful in explaining what was available and understood that we had certain expectations in mind with our PR. Our expectations have been exceeded. They did make the process easy and were able to answer all of my questions throughout my order.

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

We feel good that we are able to manage our PR, along with our website content. Newswire makes it easy for us to publish our announcements to many outlets.

"Helped Improve our Brand Awareness"

What do you like best?

How I've been able to create brand awareness across different media outlets. Before finding Newswire I struggled trying to get my brand seen online and off. And we all know without brand exposure in this day and age, you're not likely to be found my customers. So Newswire has made it much easier for me to get my brand out there in the digital world.

What do you dislike?

None so far but I do wish they continue to add more quality sites in their distribution list.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Newswire is a great tool for pr & marketing. Used right you can definitely generate more brand awareness for your company. They have some other products too but I can't speak of them yet. But for pr submissions they seem to be the best option.

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

They've helped me improve my branding problem! I've had to do other things unrelated to PR but without a doubt using their service helped me reach potential customers and spread my brand online. And best of all I was able to track results with their robust analytics.

"Great Options for Expanding Reach"

What do you like best?

The ability to extend reach after submitting my press release to targeted media outlets and even social media influencers. They don't guarantee that our press release would get picked up by an outlet or influencer but the ability to target such contacts and pitch them our story was a big time saver. Previously we had to use a few different tools to the same thing.

What do you dislike?

No issues so far, although there could be a bit more video tutorials and or help guides as the site has many different product offerings it can get confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The ability to expand reach for your news story is a huge plus when using their site. not all PR sites offer this so this functionality definitely save me some time.

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

Being able to submit a press release and within the same site be able to target media outlets and influencers is why I like using them. I've only done one campaign so far but I know I have saved a ton of time and will likely be using them for all of our PRs moving forward.

"Support is Very Helpful"

What do you like best?

What I liked was the one page PR form where I can quickly submit my press release content. Their team seems to be available around the clock from the few instances I called or chatted with them. So that is what I liked best about Newswire. Easy to use and good support.

What do you dislike?

So far there's nothing I've seen that I didn't like. But they have some other modules that I haven't yet tried.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to using press releases in your marketing then Newswire is like having your own PR firm. The rep I spoke with on the phone, I think Anna was her name, was very knowledgeable and really helped me with an angle on my story that made it newsworthy. She wasn't overly pushy trying to sell me upgrades but rather guided me through the process and made sure I had the best success with my first PR campaign.

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

I was new to using press releases and using Newswire really helped me with the process. The dashboard was nicely laid out and easy to use. And the guidance on submitting my first pr was extremely valuable.

"Great agency"

What do you like best?

We have been customers of Newswire for a while now. Originally, we thought we would "give it a try", and ended up becoming loyal customers. After what we called the testing period, our entire office decided they were the best agency we had trialed, and we have stuck with them ever since. Our agency Smart Crowdfunding works with people who are running crowdfunding campaigns in all areas of crowdfunding, so there are times we are sending out multiple press releases on behalf of our customers. Our customers are always very happy with the Newswire report we provide them, and the sites they are featured in. The upload system is very simple, and easy to use. The customer service at Newswire is also top-notch. They take good care of their customers, and always take care of any issues or problems right away. We are extremely happy with the service we have received.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would add is an auto-save feature. It is frustrating when a computer glitch occurs, and the entire upload has been lost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My experience with newswire was exceptional. I felt the platform put me in the eyes of a great audience as well as great customer support.

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

First, for the price, absolutely nothing can beat it. Everything is right on the front page when you log in and it is incredibly easy to navigate. All the big hitting stories are compiled right there for you!

"Easy to use and support was great!"

What do you like best?

The editorial team was helpful in revising my release. I've submitted a few press releases in the past and they were able to make suggestions to make it read better. The process was easy and I would use them again.

What do you dislike?

The first press release was a little difficult to navigate, but the chat feature was very helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Every time I use Newswire it gets easier. The chat support was helpful to check up on the status of my order. They have other options that I might use in the future, but the results from the distribution that I get are already great!

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

I don't have a lot of time in my day to manage the publicity for my company but Newswire makes it easy. Unlike other services, it was pretty quick to get set up and I was able to submit the same day.

"Best press release "

What do you like best?

I like the ease of planning press releases that this company does. Being able to have a custom web address for your newsroom is amazing The simplicity of the interface is super easy.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how much info that they need just to help. But other then that I can't think of anything.

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

At Lizzy's sugar shack Newswire helps me to communicate to my employees about new products, community events and just any business related items that I want my company to know about. Making my company community knowledgeable so we can get out there and share what we do.

"Published to many places as promised!"

What do you like best?

I'm totally new with media relations and I stumbled on Newswire from a Google search. I read as many reviews as possible and figured that it's worth a shot. My article was published in many places.

What do you dislike?

I don't understand all of the options because this is my first time. However, it was easy. They also recommended that I make some edits to the headline which helped clarify our announcement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Speak to their team. I was able to choose the right distribution for my first pr with their help. The results were great and I will use them for my next release.

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

Now I know how to submit a press release and get it published to Google. I feel confident in using Newswire again.

"Overall Great Experience"

What do you like best?

First, for the price, absolutely nothing can beat it. Everything is right on the front page when you log in and it is incredibly easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

I would really like it if you could compile a list of news and stories and export it straight from the website to an excel document or something along those lines.

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

Simplicity and followup on activating our press release was done within 20 minutes from start to finish - and therefore we knew that it would be a solution for future use again and again.

"We recomend Newswire to all of our clients! Great service and great results! "

What do you like best?

Newswire is easy to use, it makes sense and they have been extremely helpful. I really like that on top of my PR distribution I can send an email to additional media sources. Its great that we can select our local channels and push a little outside of our target areas or way outside if we like. Jon has been especially helpful in walking us through the different aspects of Newswire.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I have not found anything I dislike about Newswire yet. We have done about 7 Press Releases through them and so far everything has been great! I think they do a great job of staying on top of the competition, they utilize the right technology and have great support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to work with the Newswire team so they can outline all of the features they offer. We definitely learned a lot about their system quickly by working with Jon.

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

We are helping our clients to be recognized in their local and national markets, We are increasing SEO rankings and we are building relationships with the best media outlets for our clients.

"Press Release this..."

What do you like best?

Very easy navigation and friendly press release format

What do you dislike?

What everyone dislikes, paying for premium features

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you struggle with formatting press releases, Newswire is quite easy to navigate. Their customer service and sales are top notch. I've never had any challenges with communicating my needs with either.

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

Newswire has an effective way to spread the news in a short amount of time. Distribution is quite fast. Although, our first PR was far more successful than our last two. I think it may be a timing factor, and not so much on content. We've hit top news feeds for major networks more often than not. And those agencies have contacted us for follow up, which was unheard of with other products we used for Press Releases. Overall, you can't beat the price. And if you should encounter challenges the sales staff is stellar and prompt. In today's market it's difficult to find humans that still want to be human and talk to you personally. This company goes above that. I highly recommend Newswire whenever possible. Features are great, you can upload pics, videos, links, etc.

"PR Newswire"

What do you like best?

PR Newswire’s platform is very user-friendly which makes it simple and easy to get a news release set up for a distribution relatively quickly. You can also save your selections from a previous distribution to make it go even faster. Since I am pretty much always sending out my releases to the same distribution list, all I have to do is check that box.

What do you dislike?

PR Newswire is expensive. I don't think this is necessary something they need to improve upon as their pricing does include a lot and is comparable to what other similar companies charge, but the pricing structure does price out smaller companies or public relations agencies

Recommendations to others considering the product

PR Newswire is well suited for organizations with a significant public relations budget that want to quickly disseminate a news release over the wire to a specific targeted group of recipients

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

When you submit a release via the web portal, you have several options about when it will be released. I typically want my releases to go out as quickly as possible, but even then I know an account representative will take a look at my release and accompanying multimedia materials and give me a quick call to confirm and make sure everything is set before officially sending it out. It's a helpful step without making the process cumbersome.

"superrr"

What do you like best?

Very simple to use. Even when we've had issues with errors, the Newswire team has gone above and beyond to help fix the problem. For example, we sent out a release with a critical error in the title - completely an oversight by us - and the Newswire team resent the wire and went downstream to try to repair the error. I always breath easy when sending out an announcement on Newswire, because I know it will be done right and the pick up will fit our client's needs. I feel like the team at Newswire is an extension of our team. Bravo!

What do you dislike?

Overall, very user friendly. A couple of small nits to pick - I'd like to see a "full justify" option on the body of text. Also, would like to see more links allowed as part of the wire price. We're seeing more and more opportunities to link within the release to 4-5 social media platforms, as well as client or product sites, and link to the media contact's email address - 8 links goes very quickly. Pie in the sky - I'd like to see an image/logo built into the price of the wire that goes downstream beyond the PRNewswire pick up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes I will.

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

We have been customers of Newswire for a while now. Originally, we thought we would "give it a try", and ended up becoming loyal customers.

"A Fantastic Customer Experience with Newswire"

What do you like best?

The interface was very easy to use. As a financial professional and radio show host, the scalability was also a great feature that I used often. The most impressive part of my experience with Newswire was their professional customer support team. They were always accessible and their expertise and advice help me increase the companies media footprint. My representative, Anthony Santiago, was invaluable in teaching me the way write the best Press Release and maximize our distribution. I recommend them for any individual or company looking to reach mass media markets.

What do you dislike?

There can be more customization of the Press Release text.

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

This solution addressed our need to get the Show and it's content picked up by content providers and news organizations. We have added literally hundreds of organizations to our list, who have picked up the Press Releases and promoted our radio show.

What do you like best?

I like Newswire because it is easy to use and easy to find. It is also the best software for press release, it simply makes work easier for me in my work area. Newswire can deliver optimum results within a short time.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about the software, having used it for more than 3 years it just makes my work easier.

I strongly recommend the use of Newswire in organisations for it eases the workload and helps to save time

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

It has helped us to release information which is up to date and also with the use of Newswire we can now reach out to a more larger audience.

"The best press release service available. By Far."

What do you like best?

I checked out multiple services for functionality, customer service, cost, ease of use, and results. Newswire outperformed the other services hands down in all categories. I am the media manager for a national nonprofit organization. We have used Newswire for two press releases with outstanding results. In the first instance, our release resulted in a story in The Washington Post. In the second, our release was picked up by Google News, and disseminated, landing on multiple sites of station affiliates for ABC, NBC, and CBS News. Dominick Martinez, our PR Strategist at Newswire is exceptionally responsive, smart and strategic, able to act as a valued partner.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Wish all business services could meet this standard for excellence.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save yourself time. Newswire easily beats its competition in user friendliness, cost, and efficacy of results. Their product is far superior to other offerings in the marketplace. Ask for Dominick.

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

We needed to raise awareness of a national event we were sponsoring, and of an open letter signed by our coalition partners. In both instances, our Newswire release was exceptionally effective.

"Professional support team and best pricing for the small business"

What do you like best?

The fact I can speak to a REAL person and the responsiveness of the support team: Anthony listens to me and when possible, gets the right folks involved to implement my suggestions that helps ALL their clients. Great service!! My clients love the stat reports I share with them -- the best feature.

What do you dislike?

Not a thing -- I've been a client for three years now and Newswire just keeps getting better and better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Newswire has great tutorials, knowledgeable staff who will talk with you by phone and guide you step-by-step if you're trying something new [like several times I needed to create a special database for a targeted email blast for some press releases I've done.

If I have any questions, I mostly ask via email or if it's an emergency, I can call and get a response from Anthony or Patrick almost immediately.

Whenever I've had ideas to improve some area, Anthony hears me out and then brings the idea before the appropriate department and many times my ideas have been implemented. It's wonderful -- and amazing -- to find a company that actually listens to and, if possible/practical/feasible, implement it.

I can't say enough positive things about Newswire -- I had checked into other companies before deciding to go with them.

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

I'm solving my clients visibility problems. The templates I've set up for each of my clients makes posting quick and easy to do, even last minute press releases. The benefits I've realized really are for my clients and their business -- more online exposure means more business for them ... and ultimately for me, due to their referrals to colleagues who also need to "get the word out".

"Excellent"

What do you like best?

First off I need to give Stephen Howley major credit. The guys is A+. He made this experience seemless for me and actually motivated me to complete it. Great guy, and I can't say enough about how much he helped.

I'm a firm believer that great employees make great companies and clearly this is the case for Newswire.

They did an overall amazing job on their product and on my product. I'm very thankful for everything they have helped us with and I wish them the best of luck with their business.

Again I would like to personally thank Stephen Howley for all the help and support he gave. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Great work and job well done.

What do you dislike?

I disliked Nothing, Price was great, platform was great, and I would do this again if I ever have something to say. If you're interested in getting info out there and fast. This is the company to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

YES

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

Press Release, and yes major benefit to doing this! At IMS we wanted to get our news out to the our State of CT, our country of the United States, and the world.

That is what Newswire helped us with. We also wanted to get our name and brand out there. Thanks to Newswire we were about to. They did their job and I couldn't be happier. Trust me when I say this give them a chance.

Thank you,

"BEST PR PROGRAM!"

What do you like best?

Newswire is one of the few PR programs that can deliver optimal results within a short period of time. The software is easy to navigate and the design makes it clear to understand

What do you dislike?

I have not experienced any cons while using Newswire. The program is self explanatory, however it may be difficult to use if you have no experience using PR software/programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Anyone working within the media/ PR industry I HIGHLY recommend the use of Newswire. The program will benefit your company in multiple ways in a short amount of time.

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

Monitor what’s being said about your brand, competitors, and industry across multiple online, social, print, and broadcast channels, with tools and metrics to gauge momentum and uncover actionable media intelligence.

"Newswire has custom solutions for your distribution needs."

What do you like best?

Newswire gave me the ability to be in control of our marketing efforts ALL the while allowing me to distribute content for my client to the media. They love the exposure!

What do you dislike?

None as of yet, so far so good. Very happy with level of service received.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to know exactly what type of distribution you want because the custom solutins while they are great can add up.

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

As an agency, everything we do is time sensitive so spending a lot of time in planning PR and distribution outlets can seriously impact our client's reach and consumption. Newswire helps in managing our portfolio of clients.

"It is amazing to work with Newswire and specifically Amanda Bennett!"

What do you like best?

The whole process is seamless and essentially intuitive. But, if there are any questions I have Amanda has always been only an email or phone call away ready and willing to help!

What do you dislike?

So far there hasn't been anything that I dislike. It is a great way to get out your press release and you more than receive the value for what you pay.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely give Newswire at least a trial run and a strong consideration. It is one of the easiest, most seamless and valuable public relations tools any business can have/use today. The need for good press releases and easy distribution is essential in any business's strategic marketing plan.

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

Newswire has eliminated my dependence upon a professional agency to write and distribute a press release, when I knew all along that I was more than capable of writing great press releases (since that's what I was essentially doing for the agency anyway). But, in the past, I had to pay them, because I still couldn't get them distributed.

"An industry standard"

What do you like best?

The Newswire name, itself, has a real value to it. Having been on the receiving end of the process (while working as a journalist in various news settings), I can honestly say there's a certain gravity to items released through Newswire. Considering the source is important and it always caught my eye. That said, as a user it is also rather simple to use. Knowing it will be seen provides a real value and incentive to create.

What do you dislike?

I really don't have many things to say negatively about it. For what you pay into it, you get an extremely favorable ROI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most definitely take it for a test drive! Find out what you can so you can get the bean counters to understand its value.

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

Where do I begin? It continues to get our name out there in the public and in front of influencers. It is probably as good as it gets for a service like Newswire.

"Amazing Company, Staff, and Results with Newswire!"

What do you like best?

Our rep, Amanda Bennett, is awesome! She responds quickly, presents information clearly, and truly works with you to present options that are best tailored for your company/organization! I was seeking help to market our press release for the Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc., Centennial Grant program. As a not-for-profit and membership/volunteer organization, we needed a lot of work for a small budget! Amanda walked me through the most strategic options for us. We also had a tight turn around and she made us a priority. I will definitely not only recommend Newswire, but will use their services for upcoming marketing needs.

What do you dislike?

Really, nothing comes to mind! Looking forward to future times to work together!

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

The Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc. is a not for profit volunteer organization. Normally to send a press release, volunteers would be searching for hours on end for updated contacts in the local media. Also, in the past, using local marketing firms, they have charged us thousands of dollars to create a media contact list and or send out a press release. Using Newswire we were able to send to local and national media outlets without spending a fortune. In addition, we loved how there were many contact categories to circulate to a wide-range audience.

"Very positive experience overall"

What do you like best?

It reduces the effort needed to contact news outlets repeatedly, rather it provides a one stop platform to reach out to all local media regarding an issue that needs attention. It's wide usage means that more often than not, our story is picked up by multiple outlets. Best experience so far has been 7 major news outlets picking up our story within a few hours

What do you dislike?

It does get clogged with a lot of news publishing sometimes, not sure if the quality control on the published articles is the best

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely a great place to get media attention for whatever your purpose is. Make sure to always include contacts and have a title that fully reflects what your article is about. More often than not media agencies will tend to skim for particular keywords.

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

Media attention for our day of actions and media coverage for governing council meetings at our university to highlight policies effecting students with mental health. We had every major news agency run a story on it within a day of posting on newswire

"Newswire Review "

What do you like best?

Similarly to GlobeNewswire, I like the fact that content can reach a large audience quickly, and it get's picked up by major search engines. It's a great PR tool overall and a great way to disseminate press releases.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any dislikes other than it's hard to differentiate this platform from the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like to see more online PR tools offered for free.

It'd be nice if the company held webinars or online tutorials from time to time like LinkedIn.

Other than that, perhaps they could adopt a tool in the future that could be adopted to disseminate news via social media platforms? We all know that the future of marketing lies in social media, so I think it'd be a good investment.

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

- Being able to reach a large audience

- Releasing up-to-date information

- Ability to release news from one of our clients

"A decent distribution platform for science discoveries"

What do you like best?

I like that it allows our stories to have increased national exposure and I like having internal analytics that we can combine with the other story analytics we track.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I thought it was a larger distribution source. We rarely hit higher than 2,000 reads internally on Newswire, and while that could increase if the story was picked up, it appears to be the case across the board of our university.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would see what sort of neeeds you have from a distribution standpoint and see if Eurkalert or other distribution outlets would provide similar or better distribution.

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

It provides the benefit of increased distribution of PR.

"Cheapest advertising media to get. Action"

What do you like best?

The Rep Joe Shea spent the time to walk me thru the website, price the program he thought best fit my application reviewed and correct my shortfalls. To my surprise in the first day I got phone calls from two T V stations. Recorded an interview and both were on broadcast that evening.

Between the press release and T V broadcasts my story was picked up on Facebook and it seemed like the website story was a virus.

P S

NEWSWIRE WAS A FRACTION OF THE COST OF THE OTHER WEBSITES I HAD CONTACTED

What do you dislike?

I can only say there was no dislike I can say in my comments. The achieved my goal

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended

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

I am releasing story to create public awareness of a new 1,000,000 sq. Ft. Shopping complex. The public interest in the site was exactly what I needed to bring awareness to the local politicians offering their help to bring this tax benefit to their community.

"Writing and Distribution in one place"

What do you like best?

We like how we can opt for full press release service, writing and distribution all in one process. With the writing service we have the ability to speak with the writer to make sure they understand our product and announcements.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the writing team doesn't always get it in the first draft and takes a few back and forth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the option to speak with the writer to make sure they understand your product and news announcement.

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

Being able to go to Newswire for writing and distribution helps to centralize our PR efforts.

"Great PR Coverage and Excellent Customer Service!"

What do you like best?

Newswire has a very easy-to-navigate platform that allows us with a variety of different options to get the best coverage on our press releases and press announcements for both ourselves and our clients. They also have amazing customer service and always respond within minutes if I have a question or concern. They are continuously updating the platform according to customer feedback and staying up-to-date with new PR features.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike! I would like to see some additional industries added to the list, but other than that, I have no complaints.

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

We are definitely getting our clients much more coverage with Newswire. We are seeing a greater pickup with Newswire than even other big, well-known PR distribution platforms.

"Newswire Is One Of The Best Press Release Services To Work With"

What do you like best?

The professional, courteous, rapid responses to my requests to publish my press release was the best!

What do you dislike?

The distribution for certain industries are a little weak. They should make it a focus to expand or specialize in the industries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Delivered exactly what was promised. I will use them in the future for other press releases and articles that I need to get out!

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

The need to get Press Coverage for our releases.

"Amazing Experience!"

What do you like best?

I was really impressed with how they made the whole process so simple. Plus my account manager, Jon Pierce went out of his way, just to make sure I did everything right. In today's busy world you don't see that anymore. It was a breath of fresh air!

I am a marketing professional. But I have always had admin's do this work.

I had to do all the work this time, so I had to understand all the steps. Jon made it very easy

What do you dislike?

Nothing! It was an amazing experience. More help video's on what to do after the Press Release is released.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use them! They are great!

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

A Press Release that gets us on the Radar. A platform to reach the right audience

"AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!"

What do you like best?

The customer service at Newswire has been exceptional. Stephen has been instrumental in helping us navigate through the process of delivering successful press releases and marketing campaigns. He has exceeded my expectations.

What do you dislike?

So far my experiences at Newswire have all been positive. I do wish the press releases allowed for more images to be uploaded without any extra fees.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I explored and tried many of the competition and Newswire certainly gives you the most bang for your buck. I definitely recommend Newswire to any business small and large. If you are new to press releases, Newswire.com will walk you through every step of the way.

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

Problems we were trying to solve were gaining more exposure and distribution to media outlets and seeing ROI on sent press releases. The Newswire interface was very easy to navigate and we were able to see very clearly which media outlets viewed and shared.

"Newswire is a Game-Changer! IMMEDIATE Impact to Reach and Professional Messaging!"

What do you like best?

I love that Newswire has left no stone unturned in creating a platform that offers industry-leading features and technology, but one that I’m able to easily and quickly navigate. Most importantly, the exceptionally warm and insightful hands-on service provided by Carla Carpentieri each and every time I’ve reached out to her means I’ll be a fan for life. She’s taken the time to understand our specific goals and objectives and works shoulder-to-shoulder with us to create customized initiatives that have resulted in unprecedented impact.

What do you dislike?

There is absolutely nothing that I dislike.

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

Press alone was not creating our desired exposure. Being able to craft and layer a customized, targeted email campaign (choosing contacts from Newswire's enormous data base) with a press release had an immediate, measurable jaw-dropping impact. Accessing Newswire's real-time campaign analytics means I'm no longer guessing or wondering if our messaging has hit its target. It's exciting to watch Newswire's impact grow exponentially in the days following a campaign --I'm watching our news being picked up and shared in our location target - in everything from local papers, industry blogs and more. Having the artistic freedom to craft our "Newsroom", another cool feature, is something else we're looking forward to engaging in. Newswire offers sky's-the-limit impact!

"Ease of Use"

What do you like best?

Simple site interfare, and ease of use.

What do you dislike?

I havve no real complaints about Newswire. i'm so new with PR, it's going to take time to learn of the feeatures that are available for my marketing efforts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've spoke to a lot of other vendors and they were the only ones that really walked me through the entire process. Semms likes a lot of companies use them.

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

I no longer have to spend a great deal of time doing press releases or similar announcements.

"We've used Newswire to send press releases related to an upcoming fundraising event."

What do you like best?

Newswire distributed our press release to a large list of local media professionals that we wouldn't have had access to otherwise. Coming from Newswire, the press releases had a very legitimate and professional feel to them. The team at Newswire works quickly and efficiently to help us get the word out about our event. I also liked that the responses from the media came directly to me.

What do you dislike?

I haven't had any negative experience with Newswire.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have your own list of media professionals, or a very limited one, press releases sent through Newswire

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

We are seeking help in getting the word out about our event to get people involved in a variety of ways. After the first two press releases, we received a few news placements with local newspaper and had a news video crew on site to interview our event chairperson. We have heard from a few others that they are working on even more media coverage. I don't believe we would have had this interaction if we had sent the press releases out on our own, with our very limited list.
