Pros

Newswire is easy to use, and gets the best reach than any other press release company that I've used before. I've recommended this service to my clients and friends in the PR, and they all love them!.

Cons

Nothing to add in this place. Perhaps that the review time after hours or over the weekend is a little faster.

Newswire is Reasonably Priced and Easy to Use

Reviewed on 2019/06/28

Pros

Newswire is reasonably priced and easy to use. I can have a press release uploaded and distributed in less than an hour. They also have great customer service - I once had an error in a press release that had already been distributed. Once I contacted them, they updated the error on their site and contacted companies that had published the press release to have them correct the error on my behalf in a really timely manner.

Cons

The introductory price point for a single release, while reasonable, does not result in high levels of traffic for us. The backlinks are helpful to our overall end goal, but the outlets aren't big enough to lead to revenue. The Premium Plus I think would be a better source, however, the price point doesn't work for us right now.

Our goal was to attract interest to our free high school and middle school health education resources. results were underwhelming , especially considering the high cost of the press release.

Pros

Distribution of press release to many outlets.

Cons

Categories of interest were too general - we needed much more customization.

Prior to using Newswire, we routed most of our releases through our PR firm.
Using Newswire allows for great self-service options and the "pay as you go" feature is economical.
Doing the basic releases in-house (with Newswire's help) allows us to refocus our firm's time and energy on higher-level work for the firm.

Pros

Set-up is easy, and the overall user interface is straightforward and easy-to-use.

Cons

The only issue we've had was a change that was made during the editing process that was different than our internal style. Customer service quickly jumped into action, helped make necessary changes and set up necessary safeguards moving forward. Mistakes happen, but Newswire's responsiveness was appreciated.
