Media Contact Database

Our essential, exhaustive, searchable and regularly-updated media contact data set of more than 850,000 editorial opportunities worldwide provides easily-exportable contact information that enables you to effectively identify target publications and media outlets, and take your messages directly to the most relevant correspondents there.

Media Contacts lists can be saved and exported into Excel files for sharing internally with your team, as well as combined with your existing contacts data, so all your press releases and announcements can be sent from the Presswire system to include your own contacts as well as ours.

We offer professional PR and Communications campaign management from our all-in-one online system, which comprises some of the most powerful Contact, Distribution, Tracking and Media Monitoring tools available today, to suit any budget.

Press Release Distribution

DistributionOur 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 for each individual release from our live Media Contacts Database of more than half a million editorial opportunities, 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 by email 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 then test send each release to ensure it always reaches the recipients' Inbox folders, avoiding overzealous spam/junk filters.

We can push press releases onto Google News, The Press Association and AcquireMedia NewsEdge, as well as syndicate them across our own network of websites and onto social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Feedburner, Digg and Delicious.

We also provide permanent links to our releases, promoting your keywords, content and links to major search engines for the long-term, providing quality back-links that will boost your search engine rankings and page rank for years to come.

Standard costs are: £150 for UK Press Release Distribution, £150 for Europe, £100 for North America, £200 for Asia, and £250 for a Worldwide release (all countries).

Many of our clients opt to take bulk Press Release Distribution and Media Monitoring/Distribution Report deals over an annual period allowing us to offer discounts on our standard on-spec rates of up to 33% off, depending on the number of distributions required.

Tracking Reports

TrackingAs press releases are distributed, our unique system can track each recipient so we can report who opened them, whether they were forwarded, how many times they were read and how long they were read for.

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.

Regarding our Tracking Report service (at an additional cost of £50 per release), the report (in Excel format) will show you: 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.

In cases where there is no data on how long a recipient looked at your release for, we do not provide this contact data. We hope to provide contact data for any and everyone who opened a release, soon.

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 should be very helpful to compare 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.

In short, it's a roadmap for following-up with journalists who are interested in your message.
