eReleases Description

eReleases is a press release distribution service created by Mickie Kennedy. The service sends out your press release to a list of over 30,000 journalists that stem from daily newspapers, 100 top newspapers, newswire services, radio stations, websites, and more. The company also has partnerships to PRNewswire and also sends out their releases to Google, The New York Times, USA Today, and Yahoo.

eReleases Detailed Overview

Press releases have become a great way for businesses to get the buzz they need. This is especially true for small businesses and Internet businesses that are on limited budgets and can’t afford expensive marketing methods. Press releases also are a great way to get a good amount of backlinks for an SEO campaign.

eReleases is a service that helps you write your press releases and send it out to their network of 30,000+ journalists. The company stands out from the others because they have collected a good database across many industries and news sources. They also provide many extras which further enhance your press release campaign.

eReleases distributes your press release to 3000+ national newspapers, 3000+ radio stations, and 4000+ news databases while other press release companies don’t even offer such distribution. They also allow longer releases (up to 500 words), a visitor counting, social book mark links, tag clouds, meta keywords, meta descriptions, anchor texts, and submission to Google/Yahoo news.

This is a huge benefit for those that want to use press releases to increase their search engine rankings. They’ll get the extra traffic from online news sources, get traffic from social bookmarking & networking sites, target their release with their desired keywords, and also get a good view of how their press releases are doing.

eReleases charges $599 for the combination package (writing and distribution) or $399 for the distribution alone. To get a press release written by the company, it costs $299. They claim that their writers are professionals that know how to craft a compelling release and do the necessary research to learn about your company. You can choose to direct the writers to include specifics or let them work on their own.

One of the best features eReleases offers is the ability to track your press releases. You can find out where your press releases have been posted, keep track of them with your own newsroom, and also find out how many visitors have seen your press release. This will allow you to really find out how your campaign is doing and also helps you check if eReleases have done their job right.

eReleases Reputation

eReleases has been well received from various companies online. However, there are limited reviews from Internet marketers. This can be the fact that eReleases charge very high prices (which is the biggest complaint about this service). Aside from that, many businesses have received the traffic that was promises as well as new leads as a result of using eReleases. If you have the budget to use them, I recommend it as it is a reputable service.

Great service at an affordable price

Have tried low cost internet based press release companies in the past(i. e. prweb). Although these companies were able to host my releases on their website, they were never able to get me actual MEDIA coverage. eReleases uses a traditional newswire and were able to get me results within 2 distributions.

Thanks again. Will continue to do business.

Steep Prices, But Gets The Job Done

One of the virtual assistant stints I've had in the past required me to handle communication with eReleases while the boss was in the midst of launching his other sites and he has just started using the PR services of eReleases. He wanted me to monitor what was going on with the press release, how it was faring (he did mention that he was concerned about the rates charged to him, and how he would be seriously dismayed if eReleases promised results to him will not happen), and to let eReleases know what he thinks of the service once the process was through. Fortunately, the whole shebang turned out quite good. It generated leads for him that even I wouldn't have thought possible in such a short time had it not been for the PR he contracted from eReleases. It certainly helped out a lot in making our future dealings with his clients because he was virtually unknown and he direly needed all the exposure that he can get. This is all thanks to eReleases.

Not Worth the Hefty Prices

I've used eReleases on one of my previous positions with an online company. We hired eReleases to write one of our press releases for one of the new products we were featuring on our website. We also took advantage of their distribution services, and yes, the price was steep at $599. They did get the writing done fast and basically highlighted everything we needed to say about the product featured, but it wasn't what I would have expected for almost $600. They did promote the release and we got some traffic from what they did, but they are a bit misleading about how much attention they can actually get you. The tracker they show you is a neat service, but I question just how accurate it is, because it seemed a bit inflated compared to the tracker we had on our own website. We were getting more exposure simply from our ad campaign, which was much cheaper in comparison. We never used eReleases again and were able to get better releases written for far cheaper from freelance writers or other services. And that is the route I would recommend anyone else go too. eReleases' prices are far too inflated for the actual services they provide, and their distribution isn't as effective as they promote.
