Why do you only send it to local media in Pittsburgh?
This service is for people who don’t need to have their release sent out on a national level. Maybe your release will only interest locals or it is an event that is in the local community.
How soon does the press release go out?
We make every effort to get your press release out within 24-48 hours before 12 noon.
How are your press releases sent?
Your press release is sent via email with the text formatted by us for line length and presentation. The text of the press release is sent within the body of the email message as many organizations will not accept attachments because of virus and bandwidth concerns. If you have an image, you can inform editors where to find it (url) or provide contact details at the end of your press release regarding graphics. No HTML will be placed within the emailed press release. The subject of the email message sent to editors will include your press release title or an abbreviated version of it.
What do you guarantee?
We guarantee your press release will be distributed. After your release is sent, you will receive a confirmation from us that it was sent. For $35, we cannot promise you will receive additional media coverage. The fact is that it’s difficult to receive press as so many online and offline organizations and businesses are competing for the spotlight.
Why So Inexpensive?
We, like any other newswire service, can NOT guarantee you media coverage, but we CAN guarantee you that your press release will be sent to all the media outlets in Allegheny County and Surrounding Areas that are on our list. We feel that $35 is a reasonable amount for that.
Any good news?
Yes, the Internet has seen its largest growth among small and mid-sized companies. This medium has helped to level (or at least leverage) the playing field of huge overhead expenses, large contacts, and even larger advertising budgets. As a result, many small companies have seen their businesses flourish on the web. Sometimes this happens when a company is profiled in a trade journal or appears on the front page of the Washington Post’s business section. As long as your goals are realistic, press releases are a valuable opportunity. If you don’t succeed on your first release, remember that one press release is only part of an ongoing media campaign and stick with it. Each subsequent press release (crafted for its newsworthiness) will only help your company or organization gain credibility with editors and writers, who may eventually give you that mention you’ve been looking for. Press releases do work.
