PR Newswire

PR Newswire is the world's largest electronic distributor of news releases. They've been doing it since 1954!

With over 60,000 members worldwide - many of which are small businesses just like yours - these companies benefit because their releases are read by editors across the country. A well-placed article, even in a small local publication, can often lead to significant business rewards. Whether you use local advertising, telemarketing, a sales staff, or simply work solo on the phone, you need to communicate your message and increase the profile of your company. Sending out a news release is an excellent tool you can use to help achieve your marketing goals.

PR Newswire reaches these critical audiences:

1.  Print and Broadcast Points

Each release is distributed via satellite directly into the computer networks at daily newspapers, news services, magazines, television stations, and radio stations.

2.  Industry Trades

Releases are sent to appropriate vertical markets automatically. Utilizing wire, fax, email and the Web, trade reporters can select a broad array of news.

3.  Key Web Hubs and Portals

With most Internet searches beginning at search engines, directories and information portals, PR Newswire is one of the most accessed news sources on the Web.

More than 4,300 web sites, databases and online services, including Yahoo!, AOL, Bloomberg,, CNET and Dow Jones Interactive, carry content from PRN.

4.  Private Equity Investors:

The Investor's Research Wire delivers your full-text news release to the desk of more than 1,000,000 institutional investors. PR Newswire's Investor's Research Wire transmits your news directly to Dow Jones, Reuters, Bloomberg, Bridge, and numerous other financial databases and online services.
