Press releases are a great way to get your name and that of your company out to the general population and if you look hard enough you can actually find free press release services right online. Usually free means that it is either no good or that there is some sort of catch, but when it comes to press releases there are some free press release services that are very reputable and certainly are worth using whether your marketing budget is a million dollars or nothing at all.
Of course of you have the resources a good mix of pay press release services and free press release services is just what the marketing doctor ordered, but if you are on a shoestring budget then you may just want to start with some freebies. Here are some of the more reputable free press release services:
* PRLog.org: PrLog.org is a very plain vanilla looking website, but hey it is free. PRLog.org allows you to submit your press release using clickable links, images, your company logo, and allows your press release to be submitted under multiple categories. You can have your press release come out within a day or they let you schedule an upcoming release as far out as two weeks. After the press release is done they allow you the control over editing or deleting the press release as you see fit. To use their service all you have to do is sign up for a free account and then you can get to your press release submissions.
* Free-Press-Release.com: Also known as FPR, this company is also free to use and you can either register an account with them or remain unregistered. They also have pay services available when your business takes off and you are looking to spend some money. Of course the cheaper the service, or in this case free, the less perks you get. They allow you to optimize your press release and your press release is usually up and visible in a matter of hours.
* PR.com: PR.com allows you to use their services for free once you sign up for a free account. You will have a full company profile which will help you to promote your business and your press releases are distributed to such services as AskJeevesNews, MSN News, Topix.net, and more. Like many other free press release services you can upgrade your free account to a premier paid account at any time and receive additional benefits.
In the world of marketing both online and offline anything that you can obtain for free that actually works is a wonderful thing. While there are many free press release services that are available for you to use you will have a hard time finding any that have the benefits and reputation of the three previously mentioned.
More times than not in life, you get what you pay for. However, free is always a good price to pay when you can get away with it and in the instance of free press release services, free does not always mean that you are getting an inferior service.
