PRWeb Media Digests Available

Posted on 5.08.2008

PRWeb announced that customers can now distribute their press releases directly to hundreds of regional media outlets and trade publications through its new Targeted Media Digests feature. These "new media digests" will allow customers of the popular press release distribution service to increase their media exposure in local news outlets as well as trade publications. Ahhh.... old meets new - sweet!

"Our aim is to help our customers communicate to as broad an audience as possible," said Bill Wagner, Chief Marketing Officer of Vocus, Inc. "Now we can provide our customers with traditional online visibility benefits, such as search-engine optimization, pick-up on major news sites and RSS and social media distribution, as well as increasing their visibility within their local outlets and industry trade publications."

But will it work? Distributing press releases is only half the media relations battle. Getting picked up is another story entirely. Let's hope that PRWeb has established formal connections with the recipients of these "digests" to ensure that what customers are paying for (exposure) ends up as a genuine mention on the Web and in print.

Customers can choose from four regional digests, North, Midwest, South and East, as well as from four Industry-focused digests, Business, Information Technology, Health Care and Travel & Hospitality. Inclusion in one Targeted Media Digest is complimentary for customers who purchase the social media visibility ($140) package or SEO visibility ($200) package. Customers who purchase the media visibility ($360) package can choose two Targeted Media Digests in which to include their news release. Customers can also purchase inclusion in individual media digests for $50 per digest.
