Are you paying too much to send out your news releases?
May 25, 2009
Are your press releases reaching the right people?
If you have been using a corporate newswire service to send out your news releases you are likely paying $500 or more to send out a single release. That may be acceptable if you want to distribute your quarterly financial statements to potential investors and business editors. But if your concern is to get publicity and media coverage for your organization and the issues it is concerned with, why should you pay hefty fees and then see your release buried on a feed designed primarily for companies and investors?
There is an alternative. It′s called SOURCES
has been helping organizations and businesses like yours get publicity and media attention for more than 30 years. Annual memberships, which include an array of powerful media relations tools, including unlimited news release distribution
, begin at only $349 a year.
That′s right: for less than the price of sending out a single release through a corporate newswire, you can disseminate as many releases as you wish through SOURCES
. Your releases appear on SOURCES.COM
, go out to the media and on the Internet via RSS
feed, and are indexed by all search engines and by news aggregator/RSS sites.
And that′s only one benefit of being in SOURCES

they need for their work. Being included in SOURCES
positions you as a media source and puts you in line to receive more media calls and more media coverage.

receives more than 600,000 page views every month. When you are in SOURCES
, you ensure that the media will find you when they do stories about your areas of expertise.
And distributing your news releases through SOURCES
– a free benefit of membership – ensures that your releases reach the media – and members of the general public who use Internet newsfeeds or search engines like Google to track the issues they are concerned about.
