Media Contact Database + Press Release Distribution WIRE
We Send and Track press releases using our live global Media Contact Database of just under a million contacts, so you know your business release will land on business desks and your consumer releases will reach consumer journalists, in all target areas, maximising exposure.
We also self-publish releases across our own network of websites, as well as to social media and search engines, including Google News and aggregators, providing high-value, long tail SEO benefits.
Our industry-leading Press Release Distribution service works by sending your press releases directly to the journalists most likely to write about them.
We do this by tailor-making bespoke lists from our database for each individual release, across Regional and National Newspapers, Magazines (Trade and Consumer), TV, Radio and Online.
Press releases can be sent through our website by registered Presswire users, or directly if you email them to us. They can be sent as pure text or HTML, complete with images and embedded video at no extra cost.
Prior to send-out, a human editor checks every press release for typos, spelling mistakes, broken links, corrupt formatting and missing images to ensure recipients and search engines always receive a faultless message. We also test send each release to ensure it always reaches the recipients’ Inbox folders, avoiding overzealous spam/junk filters.
Our online distribution reaches over 400+ news websites, click here for a sample.
As press releases are distributed, our unique system tracks each recipient so we can report who opened them, whether they were forwarded, how many times they were read and for how long. This provides you with immensely valuable data to compare pick-up metrics from one release to another, as well as providing you with a roadmap for following-up with your key targets.
Reports are delivered after the distribution and show:
All of the primary recipients who received and opened your release. It does not show any of the contacts who received the release but did not open it (bear in mind, many people read their messages in the preview pane of Outlook, etc.)
Where we identify that a recipient opened your release and looked at it for more than 4 seconds, we include their name, position, publication title and telephone number (where available), for following-up purposes.
Where there are multiple openings of your release, it could mean that the same reporter is returning to it, or that they opened it and forwarded it to a colleague, who has then also opened it.
The average metrics provided at the top of the table show you how many opens, how many reads and how long an email was read for – this is invaluable when comparing one release against another, especially if you put multiple releases through Presswire in future, enabling you to tweak the language and presentation of future releases to boost pick-up and effectiveness.
