Hi Folks,

One of the startups I am helping wants to do a Press Release. I know how to write one, but not sure what I am supposed to do with it once it's written. Is there a plugin for it that could distribute it?

Anyone done it before?

@dmortaz - do you have a membership at ezinearticles.com? As one of their writers you have access to their press release distribution service.

Other than that PR Web which costs is a great alternative

I don't know any way to get a Press Release out without paying for it.

I have never heard of a press release being worth paying for either.

I can't remember the last time I paid any attention to a press release.

Can you?

Writing a generic press release and simply sending it to everyone related to the press is more or less a complete waste of time.

Press releases are simply pieces of content and you need to tailor them to meet the needs of your audience, in this case each editor of each media company.

Learn what they want, what they are interested in and simply tailor your message to each, and just make it easy for them... as they are bombarded with supposedly news worthy press releases daily...

Found businesswire which pushes the release to WSJ and Bloomberg.
