LOS ANGELES, CA - 1/4/2017 — Sites like Dealcatcher and Coupons.com offer coupons to get 10-15% off on press release distribution services from PRWeb. Such bargains may entice those who are looking for affordable press release distribution services. But a careful analysis of PRWeb pricing and service reveals that their services may not be the most cost-effective option, even with a PRWeb coupon code.
The cost of distributing a press release using PRWeb ranges from $129-$369, depending on which tier of service you select. These prices are significantly higher than those of some of their competitors, even with a 15% discount from a coupon code.
In addition, the highest pricing tier does not necessarily provide high-end service. PRWeb distributes to a total of about 150 media sites.
Those who need a more substantial distribution list may consider PRNewswire, which distributes to about 300 sites. Both PRWeb and PRNewswire are owned by the global publicity company Cision. But PRNewswire caters to customers for whom money is no object. Customers report spending a minimum of $775 per release for its services, in addition to a $195 annual fee.
Although PRWeb does not charge a membership fee, it does require customers to have a PRWeb login to upload press releases to their site. Besides having another password to remember, this could also mean that customers can expect more spam in their inboxes.
An alternative to PRWeb (and to PRNewswire) is Press Release Jet, which charges $129 for premium press release distribution services. They distribute to all the major news networks, such as ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CW, as well as Bing News and Google News. Links, images, and video can be included at no extra charge. Press Release Jet guarantees syndication in over 375 media sites. These services are far superior to those of PRWeb for just a fraction of the cost, even when factoring in coupons and discounts.
