|FEATURES - PRESS RELEASE DISTRIBUTION|
Exclusive 4-WAY Distribution Process:
Regardless of the geographic area that you have chosen for distributing your press release, all releases are delivered by a unique "4-Way distribution process". Other press release distribution services only post your press release online without sending it to any journalists, reporters or editors. Without sending your press release to journalists, you will not be successful in getting publicity or media attention.
STEP 1 (Posting Online): In addition to being automatically posted to about 5,000 news sites, we will post your press release to our highly respected MMDNewswire.com service. Your press releases will appear in popular search engines, including Google News. Search engine optimization (SEO), up to five links, and two images are included.
STEP 2 (RSS Syndication): Press releases are sent by RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to popular news sites. All press releases included in our RSS feed are automatically posted to approximately 5,000 popular news sites. This online visibility brings traffic, SEO benefit, and credibility to your news and website.
STEP 3 (FTP): We also send your press release to newsrooms and Wire Service by FTP (File Transfer Protocol). The wire services and newsrooms then redistribute your press release to thousands of additional news outlets.
STEP 4 (Email): We reach individual journalists by email. Your entire press release is sent to journalists (reporters, editors, etc) that cover the topic of your press release. Journalists at newspapers, magazine, trade journals, and TV and radio stations are constantly in need of story ideas and guests. Our media list contains over 800,000 media contacts. Each press release is sent by itself, not grouped together with other press releases. This feature ensures that your release gets the kind of personal attention from journalists that is so essential. Journalists are much more likely to consider press releases that come directly to them, and as noted above, they very rarely search the internet for story ideas.
In comparison, when a press release distribution service does not give you exact details of what methods they will use to distribute your press release in writing, this generally means that they will be posting your release online, with perhaps some limited RSS syndication.
Highly Targeted Distribution:
Once we receive your order, we read your press release and target journalists from our proprietary list of 165,000 media outlets and 801,284 media contacts. Our media list is divided into 517 categories, enabling us to target journalists that are looking for your news. Our innovative service and unique features are what make us the leader in direct-to-journalist press release distribution.
Local, Nationwide or International Reach:
We give you the option of sending your press release to journalists in a single city, metro area, country, multiple countries, or worldwide. Our proprietary database of media contacts covers 193 countries. Our distribution fees are based on the scope of the geographic area where the press release is delivered (Local, Nationwide, or Worldwide).
Proof of Distribution:
Once we have distributed your press release, we will send you a list of journalists that we reached, links to the first 25 sites that post your release, a link to track hits to your press release online and a link to see your press release in Google News.
