Effective press release distribution is critical to the success of your newsworthy message. Experience, knowledge of how news agencies tick, and keen SEO skills are key to maximizing your release’s chances for success.

We’ve been distributing press releases for our clients for many years. Based on much experience and hindsight, we have whittled the choices of distribution services we offer down to two that provide the very best bang for the buck: PRLeap and PRWeb.

Liz Ernst can expertly write and distribute your press release(s) for you.



We’ve worked with dozens of wire distribution services over the years and these two have consistently proven to be the most reliable and effective when it comes to targeting audiences, utilizing SEO tools, and delivering press releases to major media outlets.

Both PrLeap and PRWeb are syndicated, which means your press releases are guaranteed to reach the media outlets that count. Keep in mind, publication is the decision of each individual news agency, which is why it is so important to trust your press release writing only to a qualified writer with a journalism background who knows how to meet AP Style standards for news writing, which is required by most U.S. news agencies as well as by PRLeap and PRWeb.

 

PRLeap and PRWeb provide complete analytics reports after your release has been disseminated so you can review where your press release went, and which media outlets published it. The analytics reports include links to the live release which we recommend adding to your website’s blog and social media pages. In addition, PRWeb and PRLeap both keep your release live online and searchable through Google, Yahoo, and other search engines forever. 

Distribution costs are not included in ernstPR press release writing fees, and distribution is only available to clients whose press releases were written (or rewritten) by Liz.

ernstPR offers press release distribution only to clients who utilize our press release writing services.

PRWeb’s premium service is the only PRWeb option we offer/provide. The premium package’s SEO and targeting tools are not available in the less expensive options, which we consider a deal breaker.

PRLeap has one price for its syndicated single press release distribution services, and its syndication, SEO, and targeting tools are top notch. PRLeap’s premium distribution package costs $139 for one release.

Below are details of each service’s press release distribution services.
