Press Release Distribution Services from Send2Press Newswire


Introduction
March 2014 News
We're still working on our 2014 site revamp, moving to a fully responsive and PageSpeed optimized platform. During the remodeling please bear with us a bit longer, as some things are a bit messy at this point as we continue to suffer the dregs of the 2009 website. :-)
What's New: As of March 1, we have retired our “Extended” level plans in favor of NEW “Premium” plans. New plans include promoted social media marketing campaign ($99 value) with click-tracking.
Since 1983 Neotrope® has delivered proven, effective, and consistent business marketing services and technology solutions. Send2Press (a service of Neotrope) offers affordable news distribution services, professional press release writing, agency of record service, and syndication of original news content.

Neotrope's Send2Press Newswire service and the Neotrope News Network provide a unique solution for dissemination and persistence of news content to targeted media. We offer the only proven, credible and experienced newswire service which was the first in the industry to be fully staffed by current and former professional journalists, and accredited public relations (PR) professionals. We're proud to be a fully U.S. based company, located in Los Angeles, Calif.

March 2014 Update:
* NOTE: pardon the mess while remodeling! We recently started on a long-term plan to revamp the entire business, including migration to new technology platform, responsive/bootstrap design, and expanded services. This is still an ongoing process as of Winter/Spring 2014.

True Direct-to-Editors™ Media Targeting
As a true newswire service, managing our own media contact databases for over 25 years, we do not "mass media" 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!).
We Send Press Releases to:
  • 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 thousands of eyeballs per story (stories with a photo).
  • 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.




( SOMEWHAT DATED INFO FROM 2009-2012 - FOLLOWS )

Overview of our News Distribution Service Plans
 General Overview of Our Press Release Distribution Plans:
  • Two Distribution Plan Levels:
    We have two "levels" of targeted news distribution services: Standard and Extended.
    • Standard Level Plans:
      The Standard plans include Direct-to-Editors™ dissemination to print, online and broadcast media via Send2Press Newswire, with guaranteed publication online through the Neotrope News Network.
    • Extended Level Plans:
      Our Extended plans add national distribution via PRnewswire® (a Strategic Partner since 2002) in addition to features found in Standard level plan.

    All distribution plans include our exclusive hand-prepared SiteWatch™ online clip reports (except "Standard Online Only" plans); free photo or logo; SEO+PR™ optimization of news pages; social media posting; hyperlinks in text; YouTube™ video support; and editorial review of release by accredited PR pro.
    View All Plan Bullet Points
 
  • How Our Pricing Works:
    All pricing below is per press release issued (not a subscription). All services are pre-paid and ordered online. No membership fee. We accept all major credit cards through our secure payment system (PayPal is optional). All pricing shown is "agency pricing" (no further agency discounts).

    Press Release Writing is not included with distribution plans, and may be ordered alone, or as an optional add-on to any U.S. distribution plan.
     
  • Word Length Limits:
    • STANDARD plans have an 800 word base length limit ($20 per 400 words over 800).
    • EXTENDED plans have a 500* word base length limit (*counting dateline, media contact, etc.). If your release is over 499 words total, then all words over 500 have an upcharge of $95 per 100 words or fraction (this is a PRN fee, not from Send2Press). Example: a 625 word release counts as 700 words, and would have $180 upcharge.
NO MEMBERSHIP FEE. There is no annual membership fee with Send2Press, however all services are pre-paid (we do not offer "open account" billing). To order services, all customers simply create an account in our secure Order Center, then submit project after "checkout." NOTE: agencies or company employees using a third party credit card MUST have the actual card holder sign and return a signed Terms of Service (TOS) agreement, found here: Terms of Service Agreement (PDF). Distribution plans DO NOT include press release writing, but you may add that option for only $199.


IMPORTANT NOTES:
• All pricing ABOVE valid as of NOVEMBER 1, 2013 and supercedes all previous pricing.
• You specify your choices on our news information form, after checkout (payment) in our Order Center.
• Pricing for our plans is based on each news announcement issued, and is not a subscription.
• Press release writing and/or re-writing not included with plans, but may be ordered as optional add-on.
NOTICE: SOME FEATURES AND BULLET POINTS HAVE CHANGED FOR 2013 AND DURING OUR IMPENDING SITE REVAMP TO RESPONSIVE DESIGN (FALL/WINTER 2013), PLEASE SEE UPDATED PLAN BULLET POINTS ON THE 2013 PRICE LIST PAGE.

 Features of our “Standard” Press Release Distribution Plans:
Send2Press Direct-to-Editors™ Distribution:
  • LOCAL AND DAILY MEDIA: Direct-to-Editors™ targeted distribution to media at daily newspapers, major news weeklies, television stations, and news/talk radio, in all U.S. states or major metro area (your choice). (Number of states or metro areas varies with plans, such as "State," "4-States," or "National" plans.) Not included with "online only" plan.
  • NATIONAL MAGAZINES: Direct-to-Editors™ targeted distribution to media at national trade and consumer magazine industry categories (as applicable to your news, such as "Travel" or "Medical"). Not included with "online only" plan.
  • DAILY OPT-IN: Additionally, a large number of interested parties subscribe to the "daily summary" opt-in e-mail sent each morning with the prior day's news items (powered by Google; minimum 200-300 people).

Tier One Wire Service Distribution:
  • TRADITIONAL WIRES: We will submit your news directly to A.P. (Associated Press), UPI (United Press International), and Thomson-Reuters. These systems will choose to use and post your news item subject to their prevailing policy (they will refuse any "advertorial" material).
  • NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SYNDICATORS: Neotrope/Send2Press has partnerships in place with many of the top news systems in the world, including HTMedia/Athena in Asia/India (same outfit hosting Wall Street Journal's Asia news systems); Contify, another syndicator in India, Asia and international markets; ProQuest, which serves the academic and public library networks; ASC/Morningside Partners; and placement of news directly into Factiva, LexisNexis, Gale Cengage, Acquire NewsEdge, Reuters-Westlaw, Newsbank, and others.
  • ONLINE PLACEMENT: News automatically runs on Financial Content portals, and select newspaper and broadcast websites automatically. With our “Standard” plans, this will be 100+ additional sites, and with the “Extended” plans, this will mean 200+ additional websites (in addition to the Neotrope News Network sites). List of sites with links to your story included in your SiteWatch reports! Your news will run on sites like: SF Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, Boston Globe, Star Tribune, Miami Herald, San Jose Mercury News, Columbus Dispatch, StreetInsider, Sacramento Bee, Press Enterprise, LA Daily News, Biospace, Idaho Statesman, Digital Media Wire, AM Best Co., Cincinnati Enquirer, SiliconValleyCOM, AND MORE (actual sites may vary).

Reporting Features:
  • CLEAR TIME CONFIRMATION AND "QUICK REPORT": Once your release has posted and is starting to appear online, we send you a formal "clear time confirmation" by e-mail(*), showing how to find your story on our main sites, on Google News, and selected social network sites. Each release is presented in five distinct formats: article (HTML), print-friendly, plain text (UTF-8) for media, PDF for media, and RSS (with IE8 Web Slice). (*NOTE: clear time quick report is prepared by hand, and if your release posts prior to when we open, you will not get the confirmation until we open for business that work day.)
  • SITEWATCH™ PLACEMENT REPORT: Free hand-prepared Send2Press SiteWatch™ report which shows links to sites and social networks we track that have posted your story within the first 24 hours, plus info on the number of media reads from our main site for your story during the first day. Report is provided in both plain text (.txt) and PDF formats, by e-mail, and averages 7-30 "pages" depending on service plan (from 50-350 links).
  • MEDIA LISTS: All of our media lists ("where we send news") are found in PDF form, by publication, by state, and by industry topic, and may be researched prior to ordering services.
  • EASY READER TRACKING: On all news releases found on our main news portal, we provide simple and permanent tracking by unique page view, which can easily be viewed at bottom of the story page and requires no log-in. Unique visits are tracked by I.P. address, not "hits."
  Standard Features:
  • FREE PHOTO OR LOGO: This plan allows you to include one free Web-resolution photo or company logo (no ad banners). You may include a print-resolution (300dpi) image at additional cost. (Note: Most sites don't use image, but many do.)
  • FREE CONTENT REVIEW: A professional accredited public relations (PR) pro and experienced journalist will personally review your news release for common errors, advertorial issues, and problems related to what media expect to see. Minor typos will be fixed automatically (we try to catch all your errors, but we cannot guarantee to fix 100% of your mistakes - please ensure you provide clean, proofed copy to start with). Major errors in content, formatting, or language will require resubmission of corrected copy if it doesn't meet our minimum requirements (generally, we follow A.P. style).
  • ANCHOR LINKS SUPPORT: We have always provided live links to fully formed URLs (such as www.yoursite.xyz), but you may also have up to 10 (or within reason, see our FAQs page) anchor links around words/phrases to "deep-link" into your site pages, such as to a product page, white paper, or online demo. All links other than to the home page at bottom of release will be "no follow" to meet Google's newest guidelines.
  • FREE VIDEO NEWS RELEASE (VNR): This plan allows you to include an embedded video for your news (you must first host it on YouTube or Vimeo), to create a VNR. Ideal if you have a promo trailer, demo video, etc.

Online Posting and SEO/SEM Features:
  • SEARCH OPTIMIZATION OF NEWS: Neotrope/Send2Press pioneered the concept of search engine optimized press releases (SEO+PR™) more than a decade ago (check Archive.org to see for yourself) and today we're still ahead of the pack in the persistent placement of news online. The value of this is that we've had clients receive media coverage a month, 3 months, even 12 months after a release issuance, simply because our system ensured the news could still "be found" by interested media online.
  • NEOTROPE® NEWS NETWORK EXCLUSIVE: All plans include exclusive placement of your news in the Neotrope News Network, which includes content sites like eNewsChannels.com, California Newswire®, Florida Newswire, Music Industry Newswire, Publishers Newswire, CitizenWire, and many more. Our network generates a minimum of 10 million page views per month, and only Send2Press can get your news in front of this valuable audience (these sites have been widely quoted by BusinessWeek, CBS-TV Los Angeles, E! Entertainment, FOX News, PublishersWeekly, and hundreds more).
  • HAND PLACEMENT IN SOCIAL NETS: Send2Press hand-submits your news to valuable online sites like Bloomberg Current, Delicious, Digg, Diigo, Docstoc, ScooptIT, LinkedIN, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Scribd, Twitter, and Google+ (as applicable).
  • TOP ONLINE NEWS SYSTEMS: All Send2Press news is found in popular aggregators like Google News, Daylife, Mass Media Content, Moreover, Pluck Blogburst, Sphere, and VerticalNews; in clipping services like CyberAlert, CustomScoop, eWatch, InboxRobot, and News Knowledge; in RSS systems like Alltop, Feedburner, Feedzilla, NewsisFree, Red Tram International, and many more.
  • RSS/JAVA: Send2Press has almost 5,000 syndication streams via RSS (both summary, and full-text 2.0 formats for every feed, by topic), JavaScript copy/paste, scrolling news tickers, and even a WordPress plug-in allowing anyone to easily host and pull our news into their blog, CMS, or aggregation system. (We have offered dynamic news streams longer than most of our competitors have been in business!)
