"Economical and effective PR distribution with superb customer service."

What do you like best?

PR Underground quickly creates opportunities for me to deliver impressive PR results for my clients. It delivers a solid foundation of coverage and media pickups that I'm able to quickly leverage.

What do you dislike?

I've been using PR Underground for several years, and I don't have any complaints whatsoever about its functionality, resulting output, and effectiveness as a powerful awareness-building tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great starting place for PR newbies, and a useful tool for experienced pros who have their own media contact databases.

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

I provide PR and sales support content creation service for clients in a variety of industries - including hospitality, food/beverage, tech, education, and media. These organizations need to have their news and developments shared with the marketplace quickly and economically, and PR Underground allows me to launch their releases in a professional and visually appealing manner. The resulting online news releases are easy to read, easy to follow, and easy to respond/reply to.

Once posted, I then send my news release's PR Underground link to my targeted, topic-specific database of media outlets and journalists, and I begin phase 2 of my outreach campaign. PR Underground is an ideal solution for phase 1, and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a provider of economical and effective news release distribution with excellent customer service.

"Great Starting PR for Small-Mid-Sized Businesses"

What do you like best?

PRUnderground is a simple, easy to use product great for small businesses trying to get press releases out there on a shoe-string budget. We used it to promote our Evil Dead 2 Kickstarter campaign (which went on to raise 700K). It's great to pair with targeted press pitches. Not every press release needs $300 and a PRNewswire distribution behind it.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, the design of the site is a little dated. It's also hard to compare their more premium options with something like Ereleases mostly because both sites use a bit of jargon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have the keywords you want to target exactly right, it won't help you. (However that is the case with any Press Release distribution service.) They usually tweet out and share any press releases you put out through them, which is a nice added feature.

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

Finding a cheap and effective way to get press releases in front of a targeted audience. If you are a small business starting out, or you have small announcements that you're looking to get passive SEO for, PR Underground is your best bet.

"Superb!"

What do you like best?

PR Underground is like a straight shot to Google News for business owners who have their eye on SEO. I work with at least 1,000 clients a year and it's always been a fail-safe approach to my distribution efforts.

Also a plus, they're always at the ready to provide customer support if needed. So supportive. So great to work with!

What do you dislike?

Nothing! Really pleased with results! I have nothing to add here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it! Google News on tap is just what you need at a price you can afford.

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

The SEO benefits to my clients' businesses have been so encouraging. In a great big world of overpriced (in my opinion) options for press release distribution, PR Underground is a welcomed game-changer. I refuse to pay what the "big dogs" require for basically the same coverage. They're my go-to resource. Happily so.

"Looking for great Press Release Distribution? "

What do you like best?

It is a simple to use platform. They really "dummy proof" it for you.

What do you dislike?

I wish the option for sending out just one Press Release was a little more affordable. I know the lure is to spend 2x as much to get 4x more, but for the fact that you are getting so much less when you just want to pay to put out one, it would be nice to have a less expensive option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have any questions, reach out to their customer service. They are great to work with & respond quickly!

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

It is enabling us to put out relevant information to our customers quickly & efficiently. It goes across a variety of platforms & we know the reach is good.

"A Terrific Press Release Service at a Competitive Price"

What do you like best?

PRUnderground reminds me a lot of Clayton Christensen's books "The Innovator's Dilemma" and "The Innovator's Solution." As you'll recall he talks about how disruptors often start in a low margin part of the business.... Nucor Steel making rebar, for instance. At first the disruptors ignored, because the big players have a higher cost structure. Then over time the disruptors begin to nibble away at higher margin products. Now Nucor has a higher market cap than US Steel. The way I see it, PRUnderground is young Nucor and it has a very good chance of beating the big PR outfits.

What do you dislike?

I Like PRUnderground's Google release. I like how they've recently added new outlets. I'd be glad if they added more so my releases get even greater reach.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do an A/B test against whoever you're using now. You won't be disppointed.

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

My clients are frequently small companies. If I told them it was $600+ to distribute a press release, they'd stroke out. PRUnderground helps me sell my marketing experience and distribute press releases very cost effectively.

"Great product. Great service."

What do you like best?

The caliber of the service I received on the phone stands out to me. They professional, knowledgeable, and patient in answering all my questions. They were very upfront where their strengths and weaknesses were. They also took care of follow up items just as they promised. I seem to usually speak to a rep named Brian and he has always been a tremendous help.

What do you dislike?

Any items for this category have been minor. For example, the system does not allow us to hyperlink anything in the About Us section.

There is not the same level of review and suggestions for corrections from the newsroom as we had with Business Wire, but we also are not paying the same premium for that service.

If it is late in the day when using PR Underground's joint product with PR Newswire's iReach™, it is possible for PR Underground's version to go out with the same day date, but due to delays at PR Newswire, their version of the release may have the following day's date on the press release.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am sold on the caliber of service I have received on the phone and would encourage others to give them a try. The opportunity for cost reduction is there as well.

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

The main reason we switch from Business Wire is cost reduction. Their joint product with PR Newswire's iReach™ has also saved hundreds of dollars each release with similar or better results than we received using the Atlanta circuit of Business Wire.

What do you like best?

The ease of copy and paste information.

The ability to select categories of news segments

The ability to choose regions of news distribution

Sometimes large photos are difficult to upload but I think they are fixing that

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

"Excellent online press release service"

What do you like best?

The best part about PR Underground is twofold: the pricing which is ultra-competitive, and the support which is outstanding.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about it. It's all great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Quick, Easy, Cheap, and Results!"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to post a new press release. There are a few guided steps, and then BAM, it's published. Okay, maybe not instantly, but I see it posted online typically within hours. I also like how it's not only posted and can be found under News in a Google search of my company name, but also gets posted on twitter, which I can then retweet/favorite. Oh, and the price is fantastic! I have worked with other press release wires that charge triple (or more) for the same level of service and reach.

What do you dislike?

No complaints, and I have been using PR Underground for over 2 years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a quick and easy way to get your press release indexed by Google, then this is your best bet. Keep in mind I use PR Underground specifically for that purpose. If I want/need something published, I go a different route. PR Underground serves a fabulous purpose, for a good price.

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

I was spending several hundred dollars per press release and not seeing any results. My main reason for coming to PR Underground was to get my press releases on a wire that could get it indexed by Google and associated with my company name. So far, every press release I have posted via PR Underground has been on Google and stays up for months, or longer.

"Great PR Promotion Tool For Indie Writers"

What do you like best?

PR Underground is easy to use and prepare. Press Releases are priced right for Indie Writers who want to promote ebooks quickly and economically to reach mass distribution websites like Google News, other News Websites and Social Media. Press Releases appear on Google search sites almost immediately. PR Underground Press Release is one of the most economical promotion tools I have used so far to promote my science fiction ebooks on Amazon and Barnes and Noble online stores. Sales increased as soon as the PR was released to the media.

What do you dislike?

I am not a fan of subscriber based PR releases since I usually don't release PR's every month. I closed my subscriber account within one month and found it hard to set up a new account for a monthly PR.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend PR Underground for all future press releases.

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

I need to promote my ebooks as economically as possible and still be productive. I track my exposure and sales by PR and have seen good results using PR Underground.

"Lightweight, effective way to distribute PRs"

What do you like best?

PR Underground makes it easy to get on Google News and publish milestones for our clients.

What do you dislike?

The site is a bit outdated and I find it buggy on Windows, with different mistakes, timeouts, and mild inconveniences across browsers. Support has been quick and helpful in rectifying any bugs as a result of this.

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

Instead of spending several hundred dollars to push a release, PR Underground is an easy way to publicize small and medium client wins for credibility and SEO value.

"Great Press Release Platform"

What do you like best?

This Press Release platform is very user friendly and cost effective. It's nice to have the option to pay as you go.

What do you dislike?

The heading doesn't allow for enough characters shortening the titles

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very user friendly and easy to use. They have several payment options - you can pay as you go or purchase membership packages based on the volume of press releases you launch each year.

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

Being featured on media outlets we wouldn't normally have the opportunity to be involved with.

"PRUnderground effective at boosting search hits"

What do you like best?

The submission console is uncluttered and easy to use. They offer a no-hassle cancellation. They're very responsive if there's an issue with your press release. As they claim, publication of a press release did result in a top Google News rank for us--several times. A good release will drive traffic to your site. But don't expect miracles.

What do you dislike?

Some of the link fields in setup don't work well. For example, they need to update their YouTube entry fields. I found that it was hard to get the link I pasted into the YouTube field to result in a valid link on the Newsroom or press release pages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good service to use if you're not willing to shell out for the higher-end distribution services like PR Newswire or even PRWeb, but don't want to go the free route.

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

We use PR Underground as a tool in our low-budget "guerrilla" marketing to get exposure in the marketplace and start to build credibility.

"Super effective service"

What do you like best?

What I like best - hands down- is the pricing. While other newswires are charging several hundreds of dollars per press release, PR Underground does an excellent job at distributing releases at a fraction of the cost.

It is amazing that within moments of uploading files, your release is distributed to google and a host of other outlets within minutes- it is truly amazing to be able to get such great / effective service at such an unbeatable price!

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything that I dislike. The one thing that I am no certain about is how keywords are being used or if they are effective; but I think it boils down to a matter of me doing research.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Solid, cheaper option to get your content out there"

What do you like best?

I've used other PR service sites like PR Newswire or PRWeb, which are good, but they're too pricey and I can essentially the same results with PR Underground. Affordability and pragmatism.

What do you dislike?

As with most other PR service sites, it does take a good bit more money to really reach significant media. But that is just the pay-more-to-play-more style of all those types of sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot - you'll probably like it as much, if not more, than your current services.

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

We don't work with a marketing budget, really, so I need to spend wisely - it's solving the problem of getting our releases out there beyond my personal media contacts. The benefits I've realized are related to the way in which PR Underground targets viewers and hits social media with releases. Our gallery has a social media manager as well, so I don't deal in it very much - seeing the positive impact from that outreach has been great to realize.

"Good support, Affordable & Delivers per Promise"

What do you like best?

It was within our budget and all my queries were answered on time. We had some issue with Paypal and they even helped us figure it out.

What do you dislike?

There we some basic UI issues in the form. While they helped us over come those, it would be nice if they just fixed it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The small budget allows you to experiment with them. Go ahead ...

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

We are what you may call a 'Whatsapp for Kids'. We had just released an Android version and upgraded the iOS version. Our safety features (key one being that parents can always inspect and control kid's contact list) are what that make us what we are.

"Highly recommend this service above all others for Social Media Press Releases!"

What do you like best?

I have used PRUnderground for over three years for social media press releases. I always get a good reach on what I publish. The releases get to the top of search quickly and attract the positive attention I am seeking for the brands I represent from the audience I want to see them.

What do you dislike?

This is a really tough question because I don’t have any complaints in relation to this company. They provide great customer service and always aim to please.

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

I use social media press releases to get more exposure for brands that I might not otherwise get visibility for in an affordable manner.

"Most affordable option for Google News syndication"

What do you like best?

PRunderground.com delivers exactly what they say they will, syndication into financial sites and Google News. As long as the author knows how to properly draft a press release, PR Underground is a for-sure distribution path into Google News.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing much negative to say about PR Underground. As with any service, as broad of reach as possible is great. However, smaller, quality reach is better than broader reach. PR Underground offers that.

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

As an SEO company in Utah we were looking for affordable options to deliver our customers' news to Google News. There are several ways to do that, but few are priced in a way that allow us to offer consistent submissions with dramatically increasing fulfillment costs. PR Underground allows us to increase our customers' exposure without drastically increasing their costs.

"Great price, great customer service, good results"

What do you like best?

Brian Scully, the CEO of PR Underground, actually took the time to personally assist us.

He explained the nuances of PR Underground's services and how they compare to some of the other more expensive press release distributors. We needed to make sure our press release would go out at a specific time, and Brian personally made sure that happened -and also explained things like why they don't accept hi-res images, how formatting would appear on various platforms, etc.

I also like that PR Underground tells you upfront that in some cases they may not be the best choice - of example if you have big, national news.

What do you dislike?

A lot of us in the PR world are working under tight deadlines and may not read the fine print or FAQ's, so it would be great if PR Uunderground had some warnings as you go through the UI for submitting your release. For example -

we did not realize that there can be up to a 24-hour wait time before the release goes out. We only learned that after we hid the submit button.

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

The SEO and social optimization is pretty good, and PR Underground has useful reporting.

"An affordable way to get your story ranked on google news and social media - but that is about it."

What do you like best?

The price was so inexpensive that I tried it a couple of times to see if it would help me gain exposure.

The product definitely did what it said - my news was shared on google and social media.

What do you dislike?

User experience wasn't great - and I'm not sure if I was using the product to its full potential - but I found that even though the news appeared on the first page of google, it didn't impact my business or get us any additional press (articles etc). We are in a very niche market which may be impacting the results.

From what I've read (again, I'm not an expert - this is not my core job) ranking on sites like PR underground, or getting an article ranked through pr underground doesn't help your businesses SEO. In our case - after two press releases, we didn't see a change in our rankings from any of the pr underground activity - I think my time is better spent cultivating relationships with influencers and editors in our niche to write about us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This service is useful if you have your own list of media contacts - and you want to use this service to send it to them.

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

I tried pr underground as a way to share information about our company in a cost effective manner however I wouldn't say that I have seen any material benefit from the site.

"First Time User of PR Underground"

What do you like best?

I like the concept of a social PR wire. The cost was also really attractive, especially when compared to others

What do you dislike?

I came across PR Underground through an article from 2012ish. It promoted PR Underground as something which helped show releases in Google News. We tried it with one release. I didn't see as much traffic as I would expect. It was good to try, but not planning it to be a go-to PR Wire.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Offer reporting features so we can get insight on traffic or impression on the article? I was pretty sure this was offered (most wires have this), but couldn't find it.

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

Finding a way to share company news and announcements to people online through a news channel.

What do you like best?

Beyond their fantastic customer service the job they did on the actual release was very nice. We were pleasantly surprised to see how nice the release they posted to their site was. Also, we happened to notice that they did well in supplying us with backlinks as well. Again (and above all) their customer service was excellent! Price was reasonable as well.

What do you dislike?

"Very affordable; earns you same results as the big players at a fraction of their cost"

What do you like best?

The price and the fact that your release shows up in Google News. It pretty much earns you the same results as the other big players in the industry at a fraction of their cost. It got our releases in Google News and on the main Google search results page for a day or a couple. We also got some good pick-up from a bunch of local and smaller industry sites.

What do you dislike?

As with every other PR wire service there are hits and misses when it comes to organic pick-up. It's not something particular to PRU, just a fact of how press releases work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to work on your headlines as it's one of the most important elements for getting your release picked up.

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

Main goal for us was SEO - to get some exposure and pick-up for the content we're producing in-house. As stated before we got some good pick-up and was very happy with the ROI.

"PRunderground helps extend our reach beyond our network"

What do you like best?

PRunderground is a straight-forward way for us to get our news releases out to a wider audience. The platform is simple to use, provides an orderly newsroom and is a great cost-effective way to keep sending a slow and steady drumbeat of information to the public.

What do you dislike?

"Simple and Priced Right"

What do you like best?

We have used a variety of PR distribution services over the years. Some are clearly build on web 1.0 technology. PRUnderground is not. The user interface is sensible and straight-forward. You can get a release ready in minutes, the photos all appear reasonably on the page, and overall the user experience is great. The pricing is set low against competitive services with similar reach.

What do you dislike?

The name "PRUnderground" seems a misnomer. We use PR to be heard, to get noticed. I'm sure there is a legitimate reason to name the service PRUnderground but if it requires an explanation it's probably not a great name.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out for one release to get the experience for just $40 and then pick a plan if it works for you.

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

We used the service to announce a new partnership and product launch. The purpose was to raise awareness and drive traffic to our landing page, with the goal of converting visitors into trial users.

"Low-cost PR distribution tool for market entry organisations"

What do you like best?

Very cost-effective solution for market entries to submit press releases, with a nice newsroom interface.

What do you dislike?

Like similar distribution platforms, there is little value beyond submission to Google News.

If you're looking for basic submission and nothing beyond that, this platform does what it says.

"The price is right"

What do you like best?

We're a small startup, so the price of a PRUnderground press release is right. It gives us an official release to link to and has a small boost in traffic for us.

What do you dislike?

We haven't seen much interaction on social media, comments, etc. in response. But that's not necessarily PR underground's fault.

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great service for a small business for getting a quick press release out. If you know you are going to send a lot of releases and want maximum exposure and stats a more expensive service like PR Web could be more appropriate for you.
