LOS ANGELES, CA - 12/21/2016 — A recent PRNewswire review shows that this media giant provides a range of excellent services to customers that are able to pay top dollar. However, there are other options that are more affordable and may fit the needs of consumers equally well.
As the article explains, not all press release distribution companies are alike. They differ dramatically in terms of services and price. Effective distribution requires an array of tools, such as distribution to top-tier media sites, inclusion in popular search engines, and the ability to easily share images and video.
PRNewswire is at the forefront of the pack when it comes to these essential services. They distribute press releases to all the premium news outlets: ABC, CBS, NBC, Google News, Bing News, and many others for a total of about 300 media sites on average. Customers can opt to include images and video in their press releases by choosing add-ons or selecting a higher tier of service.
This superb level of service comes at a cost. PR Newswire charges prices starting at around $775 per press release, with costlier options for those who want to select a higher tier of service or purchase add-ons. In addition, customers need to pay a $195 annual membership fee.
PR Newswire iReach provides less expensive options, but also does not provide many of the essential services necessary to circulate a press release to the right media professionals. The cost per press release for this program starts at $199.
In contrast, Press Release Jet charges just $129 per press release with no annual membership fee. The price includes a comparable level of distribution to PRNewswire, with guaranteed placement in over 375 media sites. They also have a standard distribution option that is comparable to iReach for just $69 per release. In the absence of personalized, 24/7 customer support, Press Release Jet provides detailed and substantive articles on their resources page to guide customers in specific industries as they craft and format their press releases.
