PRWeb.com was founded in 1997 by David A. McInnis and went live in 1998. It was the first major public relations platform on the internet and continues to dominate this space today.
The combined properties employ upwards of 5,000 people, with Peter Granat serving as CEO.
When making your order on the site you can get savings by redeeming special PRWeb coupons. We list all the latest of these here at Coupofy, so be sure to check back before reaching payment.
In much the same way offline public relations companies distribute press releases to media publications, PRWeb distributes your press release online to social sites and has the ability to get the article published on Yahoo, Google News, and even mainstream news websites like the New York Times.
The basic process is as follows: You craft the press release you wish to be distributed (PRWeb has a number of tools and tips to help you with this, if you have never written one before). Depending on the package you pay for, this is then sent out and submitted to hundreds of different social sites, blogs, news websites, and aggregators.
Furthermore there are over 30,000 journalists who have signed up to receive press releases from PRWeb, which they sift through to find any that they can use for the basis of a story. If your content is newsworthy, there is unlimited potential for appearing in news publications. Additionally many news websites themselves accept press releases from PRWeb, including USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Miami Herald, and many others.
You are also allowed to include links in your press release to your company website, which may help with search engine optimization. Regardless of your own site's rankings your press release will usually rank itself for some of the terms contained within it.
Your press release can read like a traditional press release, or more like a third party news story, and you can include images and videos to really liven it up.
Ultimately the end result is more eyes on your business and the potential for more sales, dependent of course on the type of content you're sharing.
PRWeb's service is sold in several packages, starting at Basic for $99, Standard for $159, Advanced for $249, Premium for $369, and Financial for $499. The higher priced the package the more outlets your press release will be sent to, and the more high profile they will be.
PRWeb.com supports all major credit cards as payment for their service, including MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express, as well as Paypal. You can also open a PRWeb prepay account which allows you to preload your account with funds from your card or bank account, so you don't have to worry about making payments at a later date.
To redeem a PRWeb coupon code all you have to do is enter said code in to the promo box, which you should see before the payment step during checkout.
You can sign up for a PRWeb account before purchasing a package, and you should produce your press release beforehand to make the process smoother. Once you're ready for distribution you can select "Purchase Release," from within your account and you will choose from one of the packages, before attaching your release. Depending on which package there will be various PRWeb coupons you can use.
Submissions are approved within 2 days, or you can select next day for Advanced and Premium packages. Your release will then be immediately sent through the network and will appear right away on PRWeb.com, though it can take several days for all outlets to publish it.
You can track the distribution of your release from your account, where it will be assigned a unique tracking number.
Under normal circumstances you cannot cancel or obtain a refund on your order from PRWeb as the service is mostly automatically deployed based on your package, and the chance of an error is very slim. They are not responsible if you yourself make a mistake in your press release, however you can edit a release at any time before you purchase a package, and if their editors notice grammar issues they will inform you before anything is submitted.
In case you spot an error in the billing, contact the customer care within 60 days from the date of purchase.
