LOS ANGELES, CA - 2/13/2017 — A recent pricing comparison of popular press release distribution services reveals that eReleases, though known for its affordability, may not be the best bargain available. This comparison has been published on Press Release Jet's website.
According to a guide of eReleases pricing, eReleases has three tiers of pricing, ranging from $299 to $499. At the top tier, they guarantee distribution in a total of 150 media sites and also allow the inclusion of links and embedded video/audio. They charge a $150 fee for exceeding the word limit.
It’s possible to get a coupon for a discount on the eReleases website. With these discounts, you can get $30 off or 10% off the price of press release distribution. However, these coupons typically can only be used for one of the bottom tiers of service, “Buzzbuilder” or “News Maker.” Customers who desire the superior distribution and service of their top “PR Pro” tier have to pay the full price of $499.
A breakdown of this cost shows that eReleases costs an average of about $1.99 for each media site it reaches.
Although this price compares favorably to some press release distribution companies, it’s not necessarily a fabulous bargain. In fact, another popular company, PRWeb, offers equivalent services for slightly less (only $369 per press release).
PRWeb does not guarantee syndication in media sites. Its cost breaks down to about $2.46 per site, so the ROI may be slightly better with eReleases.
As this eReleases review states: “If you have identified press release distribution as part of your publicity strategy, good for you! With some careful planning and budgeting, this strategy can really pay off...but only if you choose the right press release distribution service.”
This review also reveals a third alternative: Press Release Jet.
Press Release Jet costs only $129, representing significant savings when compared with eReleases or PRWeb. They guarantee syndication in over 375 media sites, resulting in an average cost that works out to about $0.19 per site.
Press Release Jet does not charge extra for linked or embedded multimedia content, or for exceeding any word-count.
