Overall: We have been customers of Newswire for a while now. Originally, we thought we would "give it a try", and ended up becoming loyal customers. After what we called the testing period, our entire office decided they were the best agency we had trialed, and we have stuck with them ever since. Our agency Smart Crowdfunding works with people who are running crowdfunding campaigns in all areas of crowdfunding, so there are times we are sending out multiple press releases on behalf of our customers. Our customers are always very happy with the Newswire report we provide them, and the sites they are featured in. The upload system is very simple, and easy to use. The customer service at Newswire is also top-notch. They take good care of their customers, and always take care of any issues or problems right away. We are extremely happy with the service we have received. The only thing we would add is an auto-save feature. It is frustrating when a computer glitch occurs, and the entire upload has been lost.

Pros: Very simple to use. Even when we've had issues with errors, the Newswire team has gone above and beyond to help fix the problem. For example, we sent out a release with a critical error in the title - completely an oversight by us - and the Newswire team resent the wire and went downstream to try to repair the error. I always breath easy when sending out an announcement on Newswire, because I know it will be done right and the pick up will fit our client's needs. I feel like the team at Newswire is an extension of our team. Bravo!

Cons: Overall, very user friendly. A couple of small nits to pick - I'd like to see a "full justify" option on the body of text. Also, would like to see more links allowed as part of the wire price. We're seeing more and more opportunities to link within the release to 4-5 social media platforms, as well as client or product sites, and link to the media contact's email address - 8 links goes very quickly. Pie in the sky - I'd like to see an image/logo built into the price of the wire that goes downstream beyond the PRNewswire pick up.

Pros: Ease of use, flexibility, reliability, lots of features that can be used intuitively. Great tutorials when new features and/or updates occur.

Cons: Not a single thing to dislike.

Overall: Posting releases for my clients gains them excellent exposure. The stat reports amaze them, the layout and features look so professional and increases pickup rates from other online news sources. The support team goes the extra mile for customer service and satisfaction; no question or concern is too small or unimportant. When I've had ideas to improve "life" - like the category search feature - they listen and implement when feasible. I love Newswire - it is the best service out there with the biggest bang for the buck!

Recommendations to other buyers: The only thing I'd like to see is receiving an email announcing when new features and/or updates are about to occur BEFORE they actually happen.

Pros: I have nothing against Newswire. They delivered as promised. They posted where they said they would, their website was easy to navigate, and the overall experience was smooth and professional. But for the cost, I expected *some* results. The only responses I received to our press release were from other people trying to sell me on their press release service, or websites offering to get my company exposure on their blog for a substantial fee.

Overall, using this service was a complete waste of time for our product. I wish I'd run targeted ads to potential customers with the money instead. Lesson learned. I will never use a press release service again.

Cons: See above. No need to type it all again.

Overall: Realized absolutely NO benefits from using a press release service. Incredibly disappointing.

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for your feedback. It's unfortunate to hear that your press release campaign did not yield the results you had expected. I do see there was a good amount of views and some social media shares to your PR however ultimately I do understand if you were measuring ROI thru another metric. If ever you'd like to considering trying our service out again, I'd like to discuss with you, your expectations of the campaign so we can strategize on the best options for your campaign next time. If you have any other questions or would like to try us out again, please do not hesitate to contact me, patrick@newswire.com. Thank you!

Pros: The only feature I needed was the press release feature. The site is clean and easy-to-use and delivers on what I signed up for.

Cons: I don't like paying for features I don't use so it would be nice to have a basic PR plan. Also, press releases rarely have the expected return (goes for all services).

Overall: I will use press releases from time to time and test out different companies. Newswire was good but, ultimately, none of the companies deliver much traffic. It's important to go into a subscription with the proper expectations (as I did).

Pros: The software is very easy to use and great for people who want to create a quick and good looking press release. The software formats it for you.

Cons: I was expecting to be picked up by the big guys- but instead got picked up by a lot of small ones, which still helped the rankings.

Overall: I liked the customer service, they offer satisfaction guarantee which is great.

Pros: Great Team, Easy to use and affordable!

Pros: Newswire has a simple, straightforward interface.

Cons: I had to go through the process twice, because I didn't save the first time. I'd like to have an autosave feature.

Overall: We send few press releases each year. Newswire was the solution that allowed us to most easily and cost-effectively send a single release.
