Vocus image
Vocus.com is a software-centred service that aims to take your press release to a greater audience. Using their professional system you have a great amount of control over who receives your release, how it’s viewed and shared. A particularly interesting feature is the ability to see who has opened your email and then to get in touch with them more directly, meaning that a fairly generic approach can be...

eReleases image
eReleases.com attempts to set itself apart from the crowd of free or ‘cheap’ press release sites by asserting that those sites simply don’t work. Well there may be some truth to this for a number of people, but how are we to know that this site can offer a better service? What they do differently is to focus your press releases rather than simply to put them out into...

Free Press Releases image
Free-Press-Release.com is a press release and App News service site that offers  a small variety of payment options to help their press release reach a wider audience. On first inspection the site appears to have a “magazine” feel, with its categories lining the top of the page in a banner of quick links which include genres such as “automotive”, “home and family”, “lifestyle” and “movies”. It’s covering a lot...

PR Fire image
If you’re looking for free press release distribution in the UK then PRFire.com might just be the site for you. Its simple system allows you to write and upload a press release, which will be monitored by their staff to check if it is of a particular standard and ilk, and have it distributed through their system. There are also plenty of other options if you do have a...

BigNews image
BigNews.biz is a well organised, well conceived free press release and news distribution service with a healthy number of clients and an experienced set of staff. You might be surprised at how easy the site is to use after the initial bland mass of text on its homepage. Creating your press release is very simple: just sign up (this takes just a couple of minutes and is unobtrusive) and...

24-7 Press Release image
24-7PressRelease.com is a comprehensive press release service which offers both free and paid services. There is more of a focus on news releases than releases that focus primarily on advertising, though both are accepted. A free press release is possible though the site does indicate that these are limited to one a day (which is fine for most companies or individuals), that they receive limited distribution and that there...

Best Database System Out There
User Review of Presswire by Edelman on 03 March 2017

We love the Presswire database and its ease of use. It's fast to export Contact data and the Content Management System on the Presswire.com site means we can easily upload and distribute our releases to the targeted lists we build,... (Read the full review)



Vocus image
Bad Service, Limited Print Monitoring, Decent PR Database
User Review of Vocus by Ams on 20 August 2014

We've been using Vocus for two years now and I would not recommend this service. We signed up because Vocus claimed they offer international media monitoring, but unfortunately that isn't the case. The only coverage the system really picks up... (Read the full review)

Powerful Tool
User Review of Presswire by Martin Deeson on 25 June 2014

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... (Read the full review)



24-7 Press Release image
An excellent source for press release distribution.
User Review of 24-7 Press Release by Seanna Adams on 21 May 2014

We found the website, since their new upgrade to be fantastic. It would appear since this review was written, they have also stepped up and increased their distribution. We found (using a coupon code), the $139 package of extreme value... (Read the full review)

Sales Tactics and Software Are a Problem
User Review of Vocus by John Thompson on 08 July 2013

Vocus tries to get people to sign up for a year, but won't allow monthly subscriptions. The actual value of the functionality provided is low, and the consulting and software are overpriced. But once you sign up, there is no... (Read the full review)
