Easy View Price List for Send2Press®
Targeted Press Release Distribution

This page provides interactive tools to explore our service plan
pricing and features all on one page.

 

30+ Years Reaching Working Media
Using our true newswire service for press release distribution, you can reach traditional U.S. print (newspapers and magazines) and broadcast (TV and radio) media by email, online media and syndicators, and wire services like AP and Reuters, with free SEO. Custom social media campaign with ROI metrics included with every distribution plan.

Personal Service Second to None
Our “concierge” style service features old school advice and personal review of your press release from a PR expert on-staff, not an order taker. We don't make you do all the work, pasting content and choosing targets, and there is no membership fee. If needed, work with an accredited PR pro to write a compelling announcement.

Understanding our Two Distribution Plan “Levels”

Send2Press Newswire offers two distinct news dissemination plan levels: Our "Standard" plans and "Premium" plans. By offering two levels of services, we're better able to help clients meet a budget, plan multi-message campaigns, and refocus marketing dollars where needed versus over-spending on PR.
Standard Level Plans services from Send2Press
Our classic Standard Plans are designed to provide the “most go for the dough,” particularly if you're budget-conscious but still want to reach traditional U.S. print and broadcast media by email, traditional wires like AP, and top social media; plus guaranteed online placement in both the Financial Content Network (including sites like Boston.com, PE.com, WND.com, etc.) and the Neotrope® News Network (including sites like CaliforniaNewswire.com).

Standard Plans start at $99 for a single U.S. state distribution, or a true national distribution for just $199 – both include photo, video, clip report and social media campaign ($99 value). No membership or subscription fees. 
Premium Level Plans
services from Send2Press + PR Newswire
Our Premium Plans combine the best of what Send2Press® does with the addition of premium offerings from our strategic partner, PR Newswire® (PRN). Our value-add packages give you more features – including multimedia and social media marketing – at a lower cost than using PRN directly.

A true Premium national U.S. distribution starts at $399 with push to 6,000+ daily media by email, plus 5,600+ websites worldwide (half the cost of other major newswires!). Our Premium PLUS plans add all the extras from PRN including PRN for Journalists (PRNJ), “comp trades (magazines),” and enhanced Visibility Reporting dashboard. All with no membership or subscription fees.

(For N.Y. dateline, PRN will push to N.J., while Send2Press will push to N.Y. daily media as part of national push.)
FLEX TARGETING: If needed, you may optionally select a custom set of up to 10 U.S. states anywhere from coast to coast, or a simple “region” like NE or SW. For custom state mix or region, you specify desired states on our Project Form after checkout is complete (“all states” is always presumed unless otherwise specified).

Stuff you might like to know!

Click/tap the icons to expand/reveal subject information.

When news is disseminated, it's generally highly-targeted to reach specific daily media as well as trade/consumer publications. These represent the media outlets that might consider your news announcement to be of interest and in turn present that news in some form to their own audience. Additionally news may be syndicated (or “cloned”) onto a vast number of sites, but which is completely automated.


  • DAILY MEDIA: This most often refers to U.S. regional newspapers (daily and weeklies) and broadcast (television and radio). So you will see many distribution plans which describe a push to “daily media” in one state, regional, or national. This specifically identifies that news will be sent to “daily media” in specific areas.

    For one example, a newspaper in Arizona might not care about a local event in Miami, so there would be no purpose in sending a press release to that media outlet. Send2Press offers plans that cover daily media nationally, or more focused to a region (like NE, or NY-NJ-CT), or to a single state, allowing you to more accurately target the media who might actually be interested in the news you're announcing.
     
  • TRADE PUBLICATIONS: Trade pubs is a term which encompasses print magazines which are published for specific audiences, both in niche trades (like engineering), and broad consumer appeal (like music or fashion). Most magazines are considered “national” since anybody in the U.S. can subscribe to them. Magazines are placed into categories for simplifying both distribution of news announcements and in specifying a target audience for an individual news announcement.

    So, some magazines might fall into a category like “Construction” which would be differet from “Computing” or “Books & Publishing.” Some news crosses multiple categories, such as a book about construction, or financial services software.

    No news announcement can be sent to “all contacts” in our databases, as that would be news spam. News can only be sent to those outlets which cover the specific type of news actually being announced.
     
  • NEWS SYNDICATION: Most newswire services, including Send2Press, rely on news syndicators (and aggregators) to extend the online reach of each news announcement by automatically publishing the news onto various websites, often to fill space on said sites.

    These are not traditional “pick-ups,” since there is no editor byline, and the staff at the syndication sites might not even read the announcement. It's a way of raising reach at a very low added cost to each project. Primarily this element was developed for agencies to show ROI on a project to a client. It also allows newswires to claim “guaranteed placement” on news portals, although in reality the long-term value is fairly low.

    Syndicated sites have no direct relationship with where your news was sent. So, you might choose to do a 4-states or regional distribution, or even a single state distribution; your news might be sent by email to Florida daily media, but it will also be syndicated onto websites in California, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, etc., as part of the syndication package.

    (*Note: Prior to 2013 Send2Press eschewed some of these syndication systems – like the Financial Content Network – as having little value, but they were added for competitive purposes and due to customer requests.)
