How to Avoid Spammers and Select a PR Service

How to select a reliable press release submission service

Press releases are a wonderful way to announce the recent development within your company, thereby attracting your target audience that will in turn increase your business prospects. Although it sounds easy, submitting a release in order to reach a maximum audience isn’t an easy task. Although there are countless numbers of press release submissions sites that promise to make your news reach maximum media, not all of them are trustworthy. If you are going for free distribution, the page rank will help you select the best options; however if you are looking for paid submissions, you must choose a reliable service provider, who will help you get maximum coverage for your news. Here are some tips that will help you select a reliable press release submission service provider.

Be aware of the spammers

They have swarmed across the World Wide Web and are notorious for affecting your brand name negatively instead of doing anything good. Thankfully, it isn’t difficult to identify them. Here are some warning signs of spammers.

• Stay away from agencies that promise you illogical and unbelievable figures. You might expect a lot from them but a genuine company will explain you their reach and will help you set your expectations right instead of agreeing to them.
• Be aware of spammers who will promise you to deliver your press release across the globe. This is a completely wrong approach. Your press release should be distributed only to target media and not to everyone who will sooner or later mark you as spam. This will badly affect your brand name.

Get the basics answered

Don’t choose a press release distribution service provider because it offered you to do it at a very competitive price. Low prices in many cases can also indicate low quality. Before you strike a deal with any of them, make sure you are clear on what they are going to do with your release and how is it going to benefit you. Find out if they are going to submit your release manually or through an automated process. Ask how much time they will take to get it reach the media and what will be the exact charge. Look for hidden charges that spammers ask you to pay. Make sure they are also submitting your PR to social media such as Twitter and Facebook. A genuine service provider will be able to clarify your queries appropriately.

Ask for a complete report

The responsibility of a press release distribution service provider will not be over after submitting the PR. Genuine agencies prepare a complete report including the actual and working links of your live press release and will also help you measure the benefit in terms of traffic that is directed to your site through it.

A genuine press release distribution agency will help you reach your target audience with much ease. Make sure you spend some extra time to verify the authenticity of their services.
