News also runs across multiple online syndication networks with a minimum online placement of 200+ full-text websites including newspaper and broadcast outlets across the U.S. This includes placement in all AP newsrooms in U.S. and the AP website.

HOW TO CHOOSE A PLAN:

First look at pricing (below) and choose best plan your budget allows. Then choose based on reach; example: if you wish to reach U.S. daily media nationwide as well as magazines and online, social, search and syndicators, you need a “National” plan. For local events, look at the “State/Event” plan. For niche or industry specific news, look at our “Industry” plan.

National Plan
Ideal for reaching daily media (newspapers + broadcast) in all U.S. states, national magazines relevant to your news, search, social and syndicators.
Industry Plan
Ideal for reaching national trade magazines by industries relevant to your news, along with daily media in one U.S. state or or mini-region (e.g., DC-VA-MD).
State Plan
Ideal for reaching local daily media in one U.S. state, search, social and syndicators when news has a local or state-wide focus such as events or awards.

Plans and pricing have changed as of March 1, 2021.

This includes clip reports for selected content partners, the Neotrope News Network, Financial Content Network, and custom Google search to locate syndicated content from the Associated Press (AP). Also includes click-through tracking from Twitter and Facebook. Report comes end of the day news is issued. 250+ clips are typical.

REPORTING INFORMATION   

FREE MEDIA MONITORING: Over a decade ago we phased out our paid media monitoring solution since nearly everything now appears in Google. Thus, we switched to providing tools and information to use Google's advanced search tools for free media monitoring, vs. paying up to $500 per month for such a solution.

PRpurls™ CLICK-THROUGH TRACKING: With both plans, we include our social click-through tracking to provide some ROI on folks seeing news on Twitter and Facebook and choosing to "click through" to read full news item.

ON-PAGE READS TRACKING: All stories on our site have basic "how many times read" ongoing stats, publicly visible (no need for login), which ignores search engine scans.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of our unscrupulous competitors advertise a "clip report" as "media monitoring" when they are two different things. Clip reports are typically an initial mostly static report of syndicated pick-ups. A true media monitoring solution looks for earned media pickup over time and must scour the entire internet daily.

Multimedia Options

BASIC PLAN: One web resolution image included for syndication, social and news systems like Google News and Apple News. 150 sites with image is typical. See our news room for examples; size is approximately 700x525 pixels. (Note: AP sites do not currently support image.) Up to two additional web images may be added as paid "add-on" option. Print resolution images not supported with this plan (tip: you can link to any high-resolution images or gallery on your own website; or dropbox or Google docs page).

PRO PLAN: One hosted print resolution image (300dpi 3x4-inches, horizontal), also used for web syndication, social and news platforms. Up to two additional web or print images may be added as paid "add-on" option.

FREE VIDEO EMBED: With all plans, we can embed one YouTube or Vimeo video at no cost; with YouTube can be either "featured" full width below headline on our site, or half-width, at bottom of the release. We can optionally include a SoundCloud playlist in place of video, although not ideal for SEO (slows down page load on mobile).

IMPORTANT NOTE: AP sites do not currently support image(s). not all sites will include image, may only show one image above the text, and most will not embed video. We have no control over how news sites pulling our news content choose to present it, format it, or change it on their sites.

Clip Reports and Media Monitoring

BASIC PLAN: With this budget plan, you will have access to our "self serve" reporting page with tools to locate your news on many of our partner sites, and custom search tools for Google News.

PRO PLAN: With this plan you will have a PRTrax™ clip report dashboard which includes 125-250 direct link clips, and more search tools for finding your news online.

REPORTING INFORMATION   

FREE MEDIA MONITORING: Over a decade ago we phased out our paid media monitoring solution since nearly everything now appears in Google. Thus, we switched to providing tools and information to use Google's advanced search tools for free media monitoring, vs. paying up to $500 per month for such a solution.

PRpurls™ CLICK-THROUGH TRACKING: With both plans, we include our social click-through tracking to provide some ROI on folks seeing news on Twitter and Facebook and choosing to "click through" to read full news item.

ON-PAGE READS TRACKING: All stories on our site have basic "how many times read" ongoing stats, publicly visible (no need for login), which ignores search engine scans.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of our unscrupulous competitors advertise a "clip report" as "media monitoring" when they are two different things. Clip reports are typically an initial mostly static report of syndicated pick-ups. A true media monitoring solution looks for earned media pickup over time and must scour the entire internet daily.

Multimedia Options

BASIC PLAN: No image is included with this budget plan. You may choose to add up to (3) web-resolution image(s) for syndication/social and news platforms as an "add-on" option. This one-time fee for a logo/photo would allow you to re-use image on future projects at no cost. Format is 700x525 pixels, horizontal.

PRO PLAN: One web resolution image (700x525 pixels, horizontal) is included with this plan. Cannot be web banner, only photo without text or a company logo. (Note: AP does not currently support image on their platform.)

PRO PLAN - OPTIONAL IMAGE: One hosted print resolution image (300dpi 3x4-inches, horizontal), also used for web syndication, social and news platforms may be ordered as an "add-on" option. Print resolution hosted image not supported with BASIC plan (tip: you can link to any high-resolution images or gallery on your own website; or dropbox or Google docs page). "Hosted" means we host your 300dpi image on our media server, and it is linked to in the release.

FREE VIDEO EMBED: With all plans, we can embed one YouTube or Vimeo video at no cost; with YouTube can be either "featured" full width below headline on our site, or half-width, at bottom of the release. We can optionally include a SoundCloud playlist in place of video, although not ideal for SEO (slows down page load on mobile).

Send2Press Data Partners

Clip Reports and Media Monitoring

SEND2PRESS PRTRAX™ CLIP REPORT: With both of our U.S. National distribution packages, we include our clip report dashboard to help you more easily locate your news. This includes clip reports for selected content partners, the Neotrope News Network, Financial Content Network, and custom Google search to locate syndicated content from the Associated Press (AP). Also includes click-through tracking from Twitter and Facebook. Report comes end of the day news is issued. 250+ clips are typical.

REPORTING INFORMATION   

FREE MEDIA MONITORING: Over a decade ago we phased out our paid media monitoring solution since nearly everything now appears in Google. Thus, we switched to providing tools and information to use Google's advanced search tools for free media monitoring, vs. paying up to $500 per month for such a solution.

PRpurls™ CLICK-THROUGH TRACKING: With both plans, we include our social click-through tracking to provide some ROI on folks seeing news on Twitter and Facebook and choosing to "click through" to read full news item.

ON-PAGE READS TRACKING: All stories on our site have basic "how many times read" ongoing stats, publicly visible (no need for login), which ignores search engine scans.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of our unscrupulous competitors advertise a "clip report" as "media monitoring" when they are two different things. Clip reports are typically an initial mostly static report of syndicated pick-ups. A true media monitoring solution looks for earned media pickup over time and must scour the entire internet daily.

Multimedia Options

BASIC PLAN: One web resolution image included for syndication, social and news systems like Google News and Apple News. 150 sites with image is typical. See our news room for examples; size is approximately 700x525 pixels. (Note: AP sites do not currently support image.) PRN multimedia options and print resolution images not supported with this plan (tip: you can link to any high-resolution images or gallery on your own website; or dropbox or Google docs page). LOGO/PHOTO IMAGE WILL APPEAR ON PRN WEBSITE IN ADDITION TO S2P VERSIONS.

PRO PLAN: One Send2Press hosted print resolution image (300dpi 3x4-inches, horizontal), also used for web syndication, social and news platforms. Up to two additional web or print images may be added as paid "add-on" option. Images are only links on PRN versions, not visible on pages. (A visible image on PRN partner websites is a paid "add-on" option.)

FREE VIDEO EMBED: With all plans, we can embed one YouTube or Vimeo video at no cost on the Send2Press website; with YouTube can be either "featured" full width below headline on our site, or half-width, at bottom of the release. We can optionally include a SoundCloud playlist in place of video, although not ideal for SEO (slows down page load on mobile).

OPTIONAL FOR PRN SITES - PRO PLAN: You may "add-on" YouTube video embed on PRN/CISION sites, for additional cost. You can "add-on" (1) visible image on PRN sites, for additional cost.

WORD LENGTH LIMITS:

BASIC PLAN: Word limit for BASIC plan is 500 words. PRN has upcharge for word length overage, of $140 per 100 words or fraction over 500 words for this plan.

PRO PLAN: Word limit for PRO plan is 400 words. PRN has upcharge for word length overage, of $140 per 100 words or fraction over 400 words for this plan.

NOTE: BASIC plan has higher word limit due to being on PRN "tier 2" platform which does not include "comp trades" or "PRN for Journalists" site; while PRO plan is on their "tier 1" platform.

FREE NEWSROOM INDEX: With all service plan packages Send2Press creates a custom newsroom index with "about company" information, link to social accounts and link to cilent (news source) site. This index includes RSS feed which can be pulled dynamically into client website (e.g., using CMS like WordPress, Drupal, etc.).

ANCHOR LINK SUPPORT: Press release can have unlimited anchor links, within reason. ALL links in release will be rel="nofollow" per Google's 2013 guidelines to prevent "news spam" abuse. Visibile URLs preferable as they work everywhere, while anchor links on words will be removed on many sites. Links cannot be tracking redirects on visible URLs (meaning the link must go to the site shown, not a third party location). Link shorteners not recommended as media dislike "blind links."

BLOGGER AND FREELANCER OPT-IN: With all service plan packages we have 250+ verified journalists, bloggers and freelancers who prefer to get a once-daily summary email of our prior day news.

Optional Press Release Writing

With all Send2Press distribution packages, you may optionally hire one of our accredited staff to help you write, or even simply rewrite, your news announcement. Trust our 35+ years in the PR business and over 25,000 earned media engagements.

FULL WRITING WITH PR PRO: With this option you will work with our lead editor, Liisa Andreassen, who has worked at numerous trade magazines, and as part of the Send2Press team since 2006. She received her Masters in Media Studies from the New School for Social Research in New York City. Price is $199 as an "add-on" option you may select when ordering distribution package, and includes phone interview and multiple drafts to craft your best message for media.

ONE OR TWO DRAFT REWRITE: If you don't need a full interview and multiple drafts, you may provide your own "almost done" release, and Liisa will re-write your press release, then give back to you for approval or for you to make final additions/changes before anything goes out to media folk. One draft re-write is $89 and two-draft re-write is $169. These can be included with distribution package as an "add-on" option.

PRESS RELEASE WRITING INFO   


CONTENT AND FORMAT REQUIREMENTS

We generally follow AP Style for our announcements. We cannot send bylined articles to media, only properly formatted press releases with dateline, proper attribution in first paragraph and attributed quotes (not blind quotes). You MUST review our content requirements prior to submitting any project. If content does not meet our requirements it will be delayed until fixed.

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR ALL PLANS

SCHEDULING: Our business hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST/PDT Monday through Friday. Closed weekends (Sat./Sun.) and major holidays. It should be self evident, but projects submitted Saturday or Sunday cannot go out prior to when we open on Monday. Projects submitted after closing Friday is the same as submitting Monday. "Next day" refers to next business day from project review/approval.

IMAGES AND VIDEO: Not all sites that syndicate our news support inline images (including the AP at this time). Some may only show one image, some will show none. Some may enable video embed, most will not. This is outside our control. We provide various format feeds for content partners (and non-partners) and they choose what to pull from us, and how it will appear.

PUBLIC COMPANIES NOTE: Send2Press plans do not have wide reach to OTC ticker websites as that is not main focus. If you are focused on maximum reach to OTC/ticker sites online, our plans are not a good fit. News does not appear on Yahoo! Finance, but does appear in Yahoo! search. PRN/CISION does not allow any tickers in text, while Send2Press does.

INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION: We do not currently offer international distribution (outside U.S.), other than content syndication partnerships with selected websites in Canada, France, India, Ireland, and Germany.

ALL PRICING IS PER RELEASE ISSUED, NOT A SUBSCRIPTION. ALL SERVICES OFFERED SUBJECT TO OUR TERMS OF SERVICE (TOS), ACCEPTABLE CONTENT POLICY (ACP) AND FORMAT REQUIREMENTS. SERVICES ARE PRE-PAID AND ORDERED SECURELY ONLINE.
