I have run press releases on PRweb but I am more interested in distribution through traditional media, mainly newspapers.
I am not looking for a free-ride. But as I am not that experienced at this I do not want to pick a loser. Like any field, there are no doubt a few good companies and a whole lot of bad ones. Anyone know who the good ones are?
I am also looking for professional press release writing. This is for a non-profit organization and the topic is a social issue. Again, who do I put my faith in when spending money?
I was under the impression PRWeb is one of the best. However if you are looking for some other media, you might want to check out PRNewswire - they are little on the expensive side (yearly membership fees + cost for every release + add-ons if you want like more than 400 words, other countries, other languages.. etc), however if you can afford them.. they are worth every penny.
PRWeb is only good for online news releases. I often use them for that. But I need a good company for traditional media: newspapers and magazines. Print media. That is an area where PRWeb is very very weak.
