"Easy to use and HUGE database which is frequently updated"

Pros: I loved the database and search features. We could tailor lists to pres release subject matter. It was also easy to use with great customer service. Organizing multiple campaigns and lists was very easy as well.

Cons: Sometimes there's almost too much data to sort through. But that's a minor issue easily navigated with the search features.

"Incredibly straightforward and easy to use. Pretty much essential in PR"

Pros: First, for the price, absolutely nothing can beat it. Everything is right on the front page when you log in and it is incredibly easy to navigate. All the big hitting stories are compiled right there for you!

Cons: I would really like it if you could compile a list of news and stories and export it straight from the website to an excel document or something along those lines.

"Newswire makes me look great in print!"

Comments: Posting releases for my clients gains them excellent exposure. The stat reports amaze them, the layout and features look so professional and increases pickup rates from other online news sources. The support team goes the extra mile for customer service and satisfaction; no question or concern is too small or unimportant. When I've had ideas to improve "life" - like the category search feature - they listen and implement when feasible. I love Newswire - it is the best service out there with the biggest bang for the buck!

Pros: Ease of use, flexibility, reliability, lots of features that can be used intuitively. Great tutorials when new features and/or updates occur.

Cons: Not a single thing to dislike.

"Great Resource for News Distribution"

Comments: My overall experience with Newswire has been fantastic.

Pros: Newswire is an effective tool that makes sending our press releases seamless. The tool also allows one to track distribution very well.

Cons: The service can be a little pricey. Many items add up. Wish there was a way to receive more discounts.

"Good for State or Regional Releases"

Comments: Depending on the package, Newswire provides satisfactory coverage for a lower price than other platforms.

Pros: State and regional releases are sent through PR Newswire (Cision), which I've found to achieve the highest-quality pickups. Newswire nickels and dimes less than PR Newswire (but sends through the same platform), and Newswire's customer service is phenomenal.

Cons: One of our releases mentioned a public company, and so Newswire sent it through Accesswire instead of Cision. We were picked up by fewer outlets and the quality was lower.

"Customer Service Prevails"

Comments: The customer service is awesome. The attentiveness that is given to me speaks much louder than anything else.

Pros: So far, it seems very user friendly, but I need to use it more to learn o all its capabilities.

Cons: I don't like the lack of ease from returning to the previous viewed page. I have to use the internet toolbar back button to return to the previous page.

"Streamlined Press Release distribution"

Comments: Newswire has streamlined the process of distributing our press releases, and has done so at a fraction of the cost of other services

Pros: The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, with the most important information available right on the front page. And for the price, I'd say it's definitely the best option out there

Cons: It would be nice to have a function that would allow me to export a list of articles to Excel or another program for easy reporting.

Pros: Ease of use, simple to use, did I mention you don't need a Ph.D from MIT to use this? easy, works and does what I need it to do. The add ons are a nice touch.

Cons: Some of the add ons are a bit too much -- maybe just bundle a couple for a different price.

"It helps with SEO rankings!"

Comments: I liked the customer service, they offer satisfaction guarantee which is great.

Pros: The software is very easy to use and great for people who want to create a quick and good looking press release. The software formats it for you.

Cons: I was expecting to be picked up by the big guys— but instead got picked up by a lot of small ones, which still helped the rankings.

"Newswire is One of the Best Services Out There"

Comments: We have been customers of Newswire for a while now. Originally, we thought we would "give it a try", and ended up becoming loyal customers. After what we called the testing period, our entire office decided they were the best agency we had trialed, and we have stuck with them ever since. Our agency Smart Crowdfunding works with people who are running crowdfunding campaigns in all areas of crowdfunding, so there are times we are sending out multiple press releases on behalf of our customers. Our customers are always very happy with the Newswire report we provide them, and the sites they are featured in. The upload system is very simple, and easy to use. The customer service at Newswire is also top-notch. They take good care of their customers, and always take care of any issues or problems right away. We are extremely happy with the service we have received. The only thing we would add is an auto-save feature. It is frustrating when a computer glitch occurs, and the entire upload has been lost.

Pros: Easy to use
Simplicity
Quality

Cons: Does not auto-save
Limited hyperlinks
