We’re taking market share from our competitors, so we keep our pricing lower.

We’re similar to Cision and PR Newswire in that we publish and distribute press releases, but we have our own proprietary distribution platform and we focus entirely on release distribution for small and mid-sized companies. This keeps our costs lower and more affordable for you. PR Newswire is part of Cision and they work with publicly traded companies that need their press releases to show up on stock-trading terminals and other services such as Yahoo Finance and Bloomberg. These fees are very expensive.

For companies not publicly traded on an exchange, we are the new “go-to” platform.

5. The submission process. How it works.


It takes just 3 simple steps to prepare your release: create, preview, and choose a distribution. Click on the link “Submit New Release” and then follow the instructions. A form will guide you through the process. It’s as easy as 1-2-3. You can always prepare a draft and save it to work on later or share with it colleagues before submitting it to our editorial staff for review and distribution. Please watch our short tutorial video.


You may save a press release as a draft and return to it at any time to edit it. If you've already submitted it for editorial approval but it has not yet been approved or distributed (this applies to scheduled press releases), you can revert it back to a draft. You'll find a "Revert to Draft" link next to it on the Dashboard. If you find an error and need an edit after it’s been published and distributed we are always happy to make them. Please contact us.


Yes, we can help you. If the release has already been distributed, we can edit it and the edits will appear on all the versions we control through our network and distribution partners. Just send us an email through the contact form indicating the release and the changes needed. We are happy to help you.

If the release has not yet been distributed and is pending approval or scheduled, all you need to do is go to your Dashboard and revert it to a draft. You may then make your edits and resubmit the release for editorial approval.


Yes. Each press release must be approved by our editors prior to distribution. The common reasons for disapproval are cases where the text does not conform to our press release policy, it contains inappropriate language or subject matter, or there is incomplete account information. We do not copy edit your release but we are always happy to make edits for you if something is found later.


If you’ve purchased a Basic or Pro level release and want to upgrade the benefits to use images, video, and scheduling, please call us and we can get you upgraded.


6. PR formatting


You may use 700 words with a Basic release, 1,000 words with a Pro and a Pro+ release and 2,500 with a Corporate release.


No. You must add text and images directly into the form provided in our editorial system. Though we do make this very easy for you.


You can use any location. We recommend choosing the one that best matches the content of your press release or the desired audience.


There are three areas where you can update contact information. One is associated with your account, one is associated with your newsroom, and each press release can have unique individual contacts. This means you can keep a library of contacts for your releases. Edit your account information here. Edit your newsroom account information here. And please click here to visit your press release contact library.


Yes, you can use multiple contacts, although the form currently allows you to enter only one. The solution is to add the contacts directly to the body of the press release.


Yes, we provide you with 3 easy-to-use anchor text link fields. Please make sure the text you use in the anchor text fields EXACTLY matches the text within the body of your release. You may also add additional links directly within the body of your release. However, we suggest you use only 3 links for the best SEO.


You can use a maximum of 3 anchor text links in your press release. It’s based on the best practices we follow for search engine optimization. However, you can add more URLs directly in the body of your press release. It’s up to you.


Based on Google’s guidelines, EIN Presswire only allows for no-follow links in press releases but you’ll show up almost immediately in Google Search and Google News and thus the backlinks do have a lot of value. Our clients are very satisfied with our SEO benefits.


If the text is not exact, it won't work. Please make sure you copy text directly from the body of your release. Follow the instructions provided on the form.


Unfortunately not. EIN Presswire keeps formatting options to a minimum to ensure smooth distribution to our partners who may re-publish your press releases. Keeping it simple reduces the chance that your releases will be poorly formatted on 3rd party sites.


You can add images to your press release by choosing an image from your image library. They are easy to upload. Images are available in the Pro, Pro+ and Corporate bundles.


Supported file types:                JPG, PNG or GIF.

Recommended image size:        1200×628 px.

Maximum image size:                4096×4096 px.

Maximum image file size:        5 MB.


Yes, please contact us through the Contact Form and indicate the release title, name of the image that needs to be changed/deleted and the name of the new image if needed for replacement. Please make sure the new image is in your image library.


Yes, you can. If you have a Pro+ or Corporate level releases, you can embed a YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo or Kickstarter video to your press release. Otherwise, you must upgrade.


Yes. This feature is available at our Pro+ and Corporate level. Please make sure that you are only using links to websites that have a security certificate. They must be HTTPS. Furthermore, some sites contain “do-not-frame” (X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN) instructions in the coding. At the time you set up a release you will find a quick test and further instructions at the section provided. If you continue to have difficulties please check with your webmaster or contact us.


Not at the moment, but we plan to add this feature in a foreseeable future.


The exclamation marks should be used sparingly in headlines. They should be used only when there is strong irony in a story or an unexpected twist. For these reasons, our editorial staff may remove them from press releases before they are distributed.


7. PR timing/scheduling


After we’ve reviewed and approved your release, it will go out when you’ve scheduled it, or immediately if you haven’t scheduled a specific time.

Deleting a release that is Pending or Scheduled: You may simply click the delete link associated with your draft. It’s removed and no credit is used.

Deleting a release that has been distributed: You may simply click the delete link associated with your release. This will remove the release form EIN Presswire and our EIN NewsWires.

13. NewsPlugin.com


The NewsPlugin is a simple and easy news plugin for WordPress users. It will allow you to add news from a variety of sources to your website, blog or intranet.


Yes, at this time you need a WordPress website. If you’d like to use the NewsPlugin but are using a platform other than WordPress just email us. We’ll work something out for you.


Basically, you just need to be logged into your WordPress website, install and activate the NewsPlugin. The NewsPlugin comes with simple instructions to guide you.


To edit your newsfeed make sure you are logged into your WordPress website. Click on “Appearance” on the left navigation and then click on “Widgets”. Once on the Widget page, you will see the NewsPlugin and you can start editing from there.


When you are in the newsfeed edit mode you can use the star function to move a headline to the top of the list of headlines. The star is for editing purposes only and will not appear on your website and will not be seen by the general public.


When you are in the newsfeed edit mode, you can star an article to move it to the top of the feed.


You’ll need to take a look at the settings or keywords (located in appearance>widgets) and adjust them:

Search Mode – You can choose to show news that has your keywords in a headline or anywhere in an article. You’ll get more articles if you choose “Headlines & Full Text” in this mode. Alternatively, if you want fewer articles choose “Headlines Only”. This is the default mode.

News Age Limit (in hours) – This allows you to set the age of the articles. For example, if you want to exclude articles older than two days then you would set this limit to 48, for 3 days it would be 72 and so on. If you are not getting enough articles you may want to set this limit to 0 which is the default.


Searching is case insensitive. Words music and mUSIC return the same results. Some of the common words like the, is, etc. are not included in your search. You can learn more about using keywords here.


No. If your feed is set to automatic then new articles will flow onto your website. If you have set “feed publishing” to “manual” then you will have to choose new articles each day. If you don’t choose new articles then the articles that you last posted will remain online until you change them. If you don’t want to update your articles each day then set “Feed publishing” to “automatic” which is the default.


You can temporarily change your “manual” feed publishing to “automatic”. This means articles will flow onto your webpage automatically.


“A shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. Shortcode = shortcut.” (source)


The difference between the “NewsPlugin” and an “RSS” feed is the range and control of news sources. RSS is a stream of news that someone else has created and it generally contains articles from one source. With the NewsPlugin the feed you create is totally customizable, with your own keywords and the news coming from over 5,000 sources.


By installing the NewsPlugin, you can use our NewsPlugin widget to create and customize the news feeds.

“In short, with the widget vs. plugin debate, a widget is essentially a plugin that you can drag and drop around your WordPress blog or website. The plugin is a script that is downloaded that improves the functionality of your blog in both the front end for the user and the back end for you as the website admin. Use this to help you remember the difference between plugins and widgets: WordPress widgets are always plugins, but plugins are not always widgets.” (source)


We’ve been scanning news sources across the internet since 1995. As of today, we’re scanning about 5,000 news websites. Our database of articles contains over 400 million articles and is growing by 75,000+ new articles each day.


We understand that good article sources are very important. Our editors have reviewed and chosen only the most reputable sources. You can get a sense for the sources and the type of articles you can expect by taking a look at this page. Here you will see a live feed of all the headlines and sources.


Yes, you can send us an email with any news website you would like us to add and we’ll start scanning it. Please be sure to include the URL of the site so we know where to look.
