A: A Press Release is a written form of communication directed at members of the news media for the purpose of announcing newsworthy content.
A: Quite simply, if you have a Press Release which you want to be distributed throughout various media outlets, all you have to do is submit it to us, and we’ll do the distributing for you.

Some Key Things to Remember:
A: Yes, do take a look at our Tutorials section to check out the types of articles we expect for publication.
A: This really depends on the demand for the topic and how relevant and useful the press release is. For example, if a sudden flu outbreak occurred and your press release contained information on how to prevent yourself from catching it, many people would be searching for this information. Yours might not be the only source of information, so to put a definite amount of traffic for each Press Release is not actually possible with so many different factors to consider.
A: Press release is subject to approval and it may take up to 24 hours for our editorial team to process your press release. And to ensure that a press release is syndicated on time, it is best to schedule your press release ahead and submit it for approval earlier on. Once approved, press release will be distributed according to scheduled time and distribution report will be ready within 24 hours.
A: It’s permanently indexed so the answer is, forever.
A: For now, both our plans allow you to upload 1 image per press release.
A: No extra cost for image, but you’re limited to 1 per press release. We do not currently support video uploading but you’re able to include up to 1 video in short URL form into your press release.
A: Just login to your dashboard and check the status of your press release.
A: Yes you will find a distribution report in your dashboard under “Manage Releases”. The report includes confirmation of wire transmission to the AssociatedPress, LexisNexis, Factiva and more. You will also see a list of media outlets including CBSNews, Houston Chronicle, etc that have your press release in full page placements with a live link pointing to your site. Please also note that our report is non-exhaustive and conclusive of distribution. Many websites republish our news directly from our RSS feeds and our partners’. It’s impossible for us to track all the publications and mentions. Only the media outlets who participate in our trackback tracking is included in the report. To have better tracking, consider using a media clipping service.
A: This is basically a feature of the branded report. So if you’re sending PRs on behalf of your clients, and you do not wish to show that it’s from MarketersMedia (which we’re completely fine with, of course), then you can insert your own company’s logo (image size: 400×250, file size:500kb) to brand the report accordingly as your company.
A: Simply go to ‘Edit My Profile’ (through your dashboard), and look for the field which says, ‘Your Photo’ to upload your image. Once successfully uploaded, your company’s logo will appear in your new distribution report.
Step 1: Insert the following html code
<a href=”URL”>Link text</a>
Step 2: Replace ‘URL’ with the website you want to link it to, Google for example
<a href=”http://www.google.com/”>Link text</a>
Step 3: Replace ‘Link text’ with the word or phrase you want people to click on
<a href=”http://www.google.com/”>Google Homepage</a>
