Outdated database (many years old) and NO customer support
20 February 2018
Reviewer: Lily from France

52 of 102 people found this review helpful

It is very easy to get someone on the phone to sell to you. And they are very quick to take your payment but the database information they have is very outdated (several years old). Some journalists on there have changed jobs a few times since the database was last updated. Some are not even journalists any more.

Of course, customer support tells you no one is available to take your call and they will call you back but they never do.

They acknowledged that and promised another update. They never provided the update. And refused to pay me back.

I would recommend to run away from them.

In summary, I would not recommend Presswire to a friend.

Simply the best distribution and data
29 January 2018
Reviewer: Chris Naugton, Honda from New York, US

51 of 95 people found this review helpful

This is our third year renewing with the Presswire global database, for sending press releases and exporting data for our own contact lists, and it's the best service out there hands down. Customer service is excellent if you need something additional like language translations or national newswire distribution.

In summary, I would recommend Presswire to a friend.

Best Database System Out There
03 March 2017
Reviewer: Edelman from Chicago, US

69 of 122 people found this review helpful

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, globally or regionally. The contacts on the database are comprehensive and constantly updated, and if we want to add more then their Account Manager is always helpful. In short, for the cost of the subscription, it's the best system out there.

In summary, I would recommend Presswire to a friend.

Powerful Tool
25 June 2014
Reviewer: Martin Deeson from UK

187 of 294 people found this review helpful

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... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would recommend Presswire to a friend.

Excellent service
03 May 2013
Reviewer: Lavazza from New York, NY, USA

185 of 360 people found this review helpful

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.

In summary, I would recommend Presswire to a friend.
