Introduction to our Two Distribution Plan “Levels”
Send2Press Newswire offers two distinct news dissemination plan levels: Our “Standard” plans and “Premium” plans. By offering two levels of services, we're better able to help clients meet a budget, plan multi-message campaigns, and refocus marketing dollars where needed versus over-spending on PR.
Standard Level Plans
Our classic Standard Plans are designed to provide the “most go for the dough,” particularly if you're budget-conscious but still want to reach traditional U.S. print and broadcast media by email, traditional wires like AP, and top social media; plus guaranteed online placement in both the Financial Content Network (including sites like Boston.com, PE.com, WND.com, etc.) and the Neotrope® News Network (including sites like CaliforniaNewswire.com).
Standard Plans start at $99 for a single U.S. state distribution, or a true national distribution for just $199 – both include photo, video, clip report and social media campaign ($99 value; 2,500 views first 24 hours is typical). No membership or subscription fees.
Premium Level Plans
Our Premium Plans (formerly called Extended Plans) combine the best of what Send2Press® does with the addition of premium distribution offerings from our strategic partner, PR Newswire® (PRN). Our value-add packages give you more features – including multimedia and social media marketing – at a lower cost than using PRN directly.
A true Premium national U.S. distribution starts at $399 with push to 6,000+ media by email, plus 5,600+ websites worldwide (half the cost of other major newswires!). Our Premium PLUS plans add all the extras from PRN including IRW, PRN for Journalists, “comp trades,” and enhanced Visibility Reporting dashboard. All with no membership or subscription fees.
True Direct-to-Editors™ Media Targeting
As a true newswire service, managing our own media contact databases for over 30 years, we do not spam-blast news, or send content to the public or businesses (direct marketing). We only send news content to the media, and all dissemination is highly targeted. Specifically this means we don't send cooking news to car magazines, and we identify specific editors at publications so that the food editor at The New York Times doesn't receive book news (unless it's a cookbook!).
- Daily newspapers in all U.S. states; selected weekly newspapers.
- National trade and consumer print magazines / periodicals.
- Broadcast TV stations and news/talk radio.
- With all plans, news runs on 200+ U.S. finance and newspaper websites automatically (note: these are cloned copies or release, not by-lined “pick-ups”).
- Hand submit to social media with custom #tags on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
- Promoted Post on Facebook guarantees hundreds, if not thousands, of verified targeted views per story (optional Social Boost upgrades available).
- News aggregators, clipping services, social networks and search engines.
- Exclusive national online placement in the Neotrope News Network.
More than Press Release Distribution
Because Send2Press is a service of Neotrope (which has been delivering brand identity and public relations services for more than 30 years) we also offer professional press release writing and editing, and the best “white hat SEO” of news content in the business. You can trust the team at Send2Press to “do it right” when composing and disseminating your news content to the press.
