March 2014 News
We're still working on our 2014 site revamp, moving to a fully responsive and PageSpeed optimized platform. During the remodeling please bear with us a bit longer, as some things are a bit messy at this point as we continue to suffer the dregs of the 2009 website. :-)
As of March 1, we have retired our “Extended” level plans in favor of NEW “Premium” plans. New plans include promoted social media marketing campaign ($99 value) with click-tracking.
All Send2Press services are pre-paid, and ordered online in our Order Center. Please review the information found in the links below (and from the navigation at top and left side of this page) prior to calling us for assistance. If you call and get voicemail, we are likely helping others.

FAQ: How does your pricing work?
As with all legitimate and professional newswire service providers, Send2Press® distribution plan pricing is based on "each news announcement" meaning, that each time you issue a press release, you pay the plan fee, based on the plan you've chosen. We are NOT a simple online news posting site, but a true newswire service sending your news directly to media using our exclusive Direct-to-Editors™ media databases. As a professional PR services company since 1983, we invest over an hour of hand-work per client project!

FAQ: How do I set-up an account to order services?
Simply go to our secure online Order Center (note the gold "tab" at top of each page), and follow the instructions. All services are pre-paid, and must be ordered online. No annual membership fee! We are a PCI DSS certified secure merchant, in business more than 25 years, and a member of the BBB since 1997. After you "checkout" in our Order Center using any major credit card (or, optionally using PayPal), you simply upload your word processor file and photo or logo on our simple News Information Form.

FAQ: Where do you send news?
We maintain our own databases and send news Direct-to-Editors™ at media outlets which are targeted based on your actual news content. Most news is sent by e-mail, with additional delivery via syndication, RSS, clipping services, social networks, and news aggregators. With our "Standard" level plans we use our own lists, and with our "Extended" plans we add distribution via PRNewswire® in addition to what we do!

FAQ: Will you write or revise my press release for me?
You can hire us to write your release from scratch for $199, and you get to work with a fully accredited public relations professional, or you can have us touch-up a release you've written (from $89; revision available only at same time as a distribution). With all plans we will do basic fixes to your release to meet A.P. style, and to fix common typos, at no extra cost (you are ultimately responsible for providing an accurate release).

FAQ: Can I include a photo or logo?
You may include one free Web resolution company/product logo, or a photograph (such as of a product, CEO headshot, etc.), with every distribution plan. We don't allow banners, fliers, or similar. Our photos show up on a wide variety of sites, including Google News, DIGG, Wikio, Newsblaze, Zimbio, DocStoc, Scribd, eNewsChannels, and many more (additional images $10/each). Optionally, you can include a media-friendly, print-ready 300dpi image for only $15.

FAQ: Do you offer any reporting?
All plans include a Clear Time confirmation and quick-links report once the release has been issued (crossed the wire). A Send2Press® SiteWatch™ report follows the next day which includes from 50-300 links to sites running your news story, that we track (varies by plan level, as the "EXTENDED" plan will have many more sites tracked). We *do* provide PDFs showing newspapers, magazines, and broadcast outlets your news is sent to please see "where do you send news" above.

FAQ: Are there any word length limits?
Our "Standard" (formerly Silver) plans, have a base word length limit of 800 words. Our "Extended" (formerly Blue) level plans, have a base word length limit of 400 words (headline, dateline and media contact info count in length). Longer releases have an upcharge (for Extended plans, cost is $75 for ea. 100 words or fraction over 400 see the full Help/FAQs page for how to calculate length).
Click here for info no how to calculate word lengths
FAQ: How fast can my news go out - what is the deadline?
We can normally get any project out within about two hours (sometimes longer on Mondays, or last couple days of the month) of when it's submitted during our normal business hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST/PDT Mon.-Fri (California time). For projects to be scheduled for "early next morning" (such as 7 a.m. EST/EDT), we need to have the project in prior to the previous day close of business. We obviously cannot set-up projects to push to media prior to when we're open the next day, if you submit after we close the prior working day.

FAQ: What are the format and minimum requirements?
We generally follow Associated Press (A.P.) style, and so each release must have headline, dateline, body of release, and contact info so that media can follow up. We prefer MS Word file for release (or .rtf), and images can be any format; we cannot use PDFs, MS Works, or Apple Pages files. All releases must have proper "attribution" in headline or first paragraph (company or person name of WHO is announcing the news). See the following link for step-by-step examples and some issues to be aware of related to content and Google News. Sub-heads (secondary headlines or "decks" are not supported on most Web sites.

FAQ: What successes have clients had with your services?
We have a highly detailed customer testimonials and successes repository you may review using the link below. Keep in mind we have been sending news to the media on behalf of our clients for more than 25 years*, and the Send2Press service has been online since 2000*, and so we have a wealth of archival information on client successes (placement in the media), and many testimonials you may review. (*Send2Press was spun off of our corporate PR services in 1997 as Mindset Netwire, before finally becoming the Send2Press® service brand in 2000. Send2Press is a service of Neotrope, established in 1983.)
