As usual, every press release distribution service provided would promise to send out your press release to hundreds of thousands of journalists in their database.

Ultimately what matters for you is the number of journalists that will pick up your release and publish it. This is an article shows how five major press release distribution companies perform in terms of value and number of guaranteed placements which is very important in measuring PR success.

NewswireJet offers a basic rate at a very affordable price of $59 which guarantees over 250 placements for your press release. The service provides placement on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Google News, and Bing News. NewswireJet as well offers a premium press release distribution package with 400+ guaranteed pick-ups.

At NewswireJet, you can opt for a complete done-for-you (Press Release Writing + Premium Distribution) press release where you only need to give a little brief about your press release and you will receive a captivating press release in less than 48 hours.

Starting at $99 PRWeb will help distribute your press release on your website only and about 150 media outlets. The quality of this compares to what you get at $59 at NewswireJet. Although the site promises 150 placements, you will likely end up receiving just 75 as stated by their former users.  

At $399 you can sign up for the premium package from PRweb and you get around 150 media site placements. With PRweb you do not receive any guarantee when it comes to number pickups.

eReleases is a popular reseller of PR Newswire. The advantage of using eReleases is that you only get to pay half of what you would have paid using PR Newswire directly. If you opt to use eReleases you pay $399 instead of $775 just to distribute a single press release. At $99, NewswireJet offers you so much more. You get up to 400 guaranteed placements on your site

Business Wire is another popular press release distribution service provider with hidden pricing. You will never know how much you will pay until you jump in and might have to pay what you did not budget.

From previous users, it has been gathered that you can pay between $99 and $499 and sometimes higher. Business Wire does not provide any guarantee with regard to media pickups.

If you are looking to get the best results for your buck, NewswireJet is the best option. NewswireJet’s pricing structure allows you to gain earned media attention on a budget.

If you want to save big on your cost for writing and distributing your press release, you can simply go for the BuzzMaker Plus which offers you standard press release writing and distribution combined.
