A Great Alternative To Email Blast Systems

4 6 months ago

Comments: The team is supportive and helpful and customer service is top notch.

Pros:

I had been sending out press releases for years using Constant Contact and iContact but was introduced to Prezly by a business associate. I think it is a great option to manage all PR contacts on multiple lists, tag them by media type or client, set up newsrooms, add in photography and blast out. You can also track who is opening your releases and pitches.

Cons:

Some of the features don’t really work like seeing who is clicking through to a client website or who has opened pitches but I am sure they are working on that.

Prezly is the easiest solution to manage press and bloggers data

3 6 years ago

Comments: For now on, I'm only using Prezly as a database (not as a way to send press releases). Why is it so?
Because I still miss some functionalities to be able to do so.
We're working as a team on different client, and sometimes, I'd like my colleagues to have a look at the list of journalists/bloggers I selected. With Prezly, it is not possible to save a list, make comments and tracked adaptations.
I also miss a place to put the unique visitors/month for a blog (not ideal to use the comments sections).
Anyway, Prezly is really easy to use! Everything is logical and well designed.

Thank you for the feedback Déborah. Excellent suggestion for the lists. This is in the pipeline. Soon you'll also be able to see extra info for the outlet domains.

Prezly is a PR solution from novice to pro.

4 7 months ago

Pros:

Being able to add stories is one thing, but to add video or pictures to your story is a game changer.

Cons:

I’m all about organization. That means utilizing categories to help flow is necessary, but categories are not available on the first tier level plan of newsrooms. Instead I have to come up with other ways to make categories within a program that makes them. It adds time to the process.

Alternatives Considered: Mynewsdesk and Cision

Reasons for Switching to Prezly: Price and no hassle Sales. Additionally I love the fact that they made their services available to freelancers or those who cannot necessarily afford it the very expensive solutions that are out there. This sets Prezly apart by being able to offer a solution to anyone who needs one. I also love how they highlight those who came up for uses of Prezly outside the original scope. For example, I think utilizing Prezley for a portfolio solution or a intranet platform is brilliant. Thanks for sharing that and kudos to you, Prezly.

Prezly

5 last year

Comments: We are a small non-profit organization that needed to create and maintain communication with different audiences: funders, donors, team, community, media, other institutions, etc. Prezly gave us the opportunity to communicate with all of these audiences using a simple and smart interface.

Pros:

The software is in constant update and upgrade, this is important. Ease of creating content. Possibility to create newsrooms in different languages. Mailbox integration. Contact enrichment.

Cons:

Not being able to customize the captions of images. Not being able to create columns easily without going back to a developer. Not being able to create permissions for newsrooms (newsrooms accessed through a password only).

Alternatives Considered: Mailchimp

Switched From: Mailchimp

Reasons for Switching to Prezly: Customer service, flexibility in plans, a simple interface, multiple newsrooms.
