Reviews for our Media Contact Database and Press Release Distribution

June 1, 2017 - 3:23pm -- richard

We've happened across a number of review sites with great client feedback for Presswire... from the coffee company Lavazza, for our Press Release Distribution service, to Martin Deeson, previously of the iconic Loaded magazine, for our Media Contacts Database.

At Presswire, we're always happy to find user reviews of our products online...

The most recent example is an outstanding 5/5 review from the highly-respected Best Company website and its senior Media Company reviewer, Karl Beckert.

His review said: "Presswire is a PR firm based in the United Kingdom, best known for its all-encompassing range of services and powerful clientele, including the U.K. government, the United Nations, and the World Health Organization. Since its introduction 14 years ago, the firm has developed a reputation for fast, effective work and excellent customer service.

"The Bottom Line: Presswire’s reputation is well deserved. Customer service is among the best in the industry, and the firm’s media outreach is virtually unmatched. It is a well-established firm with the experience and resources to accomplish whatever its clients can pay for."

Here's another one from Philip Wylonis, Co-founder of Fitbay.com: "We use Presswire.com - I can highly recommend this platform if you have a little money to use."

And over on No1Reviews.com, Martin Deeson gave us five stars, and called our system 'A Powerful Tool'.

He said: "As someone who spent 20 years in magazine editorial (for GQ, Loaded, Square Mile and others) and working as a freelance writer I know that perhaps the majority of press releases are mis-directed or irrelevant to the editor they are sent to. Two years ago I crossed over to the other side and established a PR company (Deeson & Deeson) specialising in publicity for High Net Worth individuals and PR for the music industry. I those two years I found that probably the single biggest challenge was finding a reliable database of media contacts in the UK and abroad. I have tried a couple of different products and been very disappointed with the accuracy of their information. Since joining Presswire three months ago I have used the media contacts database on a daily basis and found it an invaluable tool for reaching the right person, on the right title or media outlet. Of course, the media is an industry with an often rapid turnaround of staff and so there will always be occasional times when the person indicated for a particular job has moved on, but I find Presswire to be the most accurate source yet for such information and overall I am very happy with the product."

And Lavazza USA called our Press Release Distribution system an 'Excellent service'

They said: "Presswire is one of the best press release services out there for corporate disclosure and news release distribution, for big or small companies. We've been using them for about five years and they keep getting us good exposure through targeting the right journalists for our sector, and syndicating releases across their own online network, which also helps our SEO. The only downside is their website and use-interface is a bit old and hasn't changed for a few years, but one of their account managers told me they're launching a whole new system this year, for Distribution, Media Monitoring and Public Relations, so we're looking forward to seeing that."

The great news is that the new system Lavazza mentioned has now been launched, and we can consequently now give all of our clients direct access to our Media Database directly though our new, redeveloped website and back-office system!

These user comments echo the many references we supply from satisfied Presswire clients on our website, many of whom came over to us from other big-name Media Contacts Database, Press Release Distribution and Media Monitoring providers.

If you're looking to send press releases, subscribe to a media database or monitor media for press coverage, drop us a line here, we'd love for you to be another positive reviewer of our services!
