Newswire is a progressive step in the right direction

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: I am very pleased at the rapid response from Customer Service and their ability and patience to assist me, even if it's last minute.

Pros:

I am able to access it whenever I want. I can manipulate it without going through a "representative". It's hands-on and self-explanatory.

Cons:

There are some features I wish were more user-friendly, such as returning to the previous page w/o having to go back through the browser.

Newswire's value punches above its weight for SEO, functionality, and ease-of-deployment

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

My favorite thing about Newswire is its ease-of-use and value for the price. The PR world is fast-paced and stressful enough as it is, you don't want to add to that stress by having a clunky release service in which you might accidentally make a mistake. Newswire has helped me out time and time again by ensuring that all of my questions are answered, and delivers tremendous value in terms of SEO and functionality. It's a distribution service for those who take media relations and marketing seriously.

Cons:

I don't have any cons to list. The tool works great and the customer service team in particular is incredibly helpful and has helped me multiple times.

Save your money and run a targeted ad.

2.0 5 years ago

Comments: Realized absolutely NO benefits from using a press release service. Incredibly disappointing.

Pros:

I have nothing against Newswire. They delivered as promised. They posted where they said they would, their website was easy to navigate, and the overall experience was smooth and professional. But for the cost, I expected *some* results. The only responses I received to our press release were from other people trying to sell me on their press release service, or websites offering to get my company exposure on their blog for a substantial fee. Overall, using this service was a complete waste of time for our product. I wish I'd run targeted ads to potential customers with the money instead. Lesson learned. I will never use a press release service again.

Cons:

See above. No need to type it all again.

Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your feedback. It's unfortunate to hear that your press release campaign did not yield the results you had expected. I do see there was a good amount of views and some social media shares to your PR however ultimately I do understand if you were measuring ROI thru another metric. If ever you'd like to considering trying our service out again, I'd like to discuss with you, your expectations of the campaign so we can strategize on the best options for your campaign next time. If you have any other questions or would like to try us out again, please do not hesitate to contact me, [email protected]. Thank you!
