When you order a press release distribution package
When you order a press release distribution package, you will promptly receive an email follow up from us requesting certain information, including your release in Word format, images, logo, contact and the date you want your release distributed. The date you select must be a business day. You will email us back with the date you have chosen. We require that you choose a distribution date at least 1 business day from the date we receive your press release. Press releases received Monday through Thursday by 10 p.m. ET will be published the next business day. Press releases received during the weekend or on holidays will be published the following business day.
For writing services, you can expect a first draft of a press release 2 business days after we receive your completed Press Release Questionnaire. You will then have two rounds of edits, and we can finalize the press release. When you select writing services, we suggest that you plan a distribution date at least 3-4 business days from the date we receive your initial order.
Distribution Process, Lists and Tracking
Press releases are distributed by our team of experienced publicists, using our proprietary technology and distribution processes. Our media lists are part of our proprietary news release distribution process so we do not share contact information. If you choose the Maximum Exposure Package with PR Newswire distribution, PR Newswire™ will provide a Visibility Report following the release with a sampling of the websites that have posted your press release.
To track coverage, we recommend that you set up Google Alerts with terms from your press release. watch for notifications for several weeks as journalists publish stories that may appear weeks or even months following a press release distribution. In addition, if you are contacted by a media outlet about your press release, keep in touch with the journalist and ask for a tentative publication date.
