PR Newswire specializes in helping large companies get pickup and publicity for their press releases. PR Newswire’s systems and pricing are set up accordingly, including annual membership fees, and fees that vary according to the types of media targeted for distribution.

A number of years ago, eReleases, seeing the huge advantages for small businesses to have their press releases distributed through the PR Newswire system, formed a partnership with PR Newswire. 

PR Newswire chose to partner with eReleases because they recognized eReleases’s ability to help small businesses craft a newsworthy story at an affordable price would give their journalists access to those small businesses’ news they would have difficulty accessing in other ways.

As part of that partnership, eReleases focuses on small businesses, helping them manage their press release creation and inputs into the PR Newswire system.

As a result, small businesses can get the unmatched advantages of PR Newswire’s press release distribution system that they simply could not access otherwise.

eReleases is the only full-exposure, nationwide partner of PR Newswire. That means that all the press releases sent out through eReleases are distributed throughout the entire PR Newswire network.

Other sites may claim they offer PR Newswire coverage, but the releases they send are either 

  • Sent only to online news sites (that are virtually useless in getting pickup by the media) 
  • Only sent to a small geographic area of the nation, usually not the markets you are targeting. 

Don’t waste your time and money with other so-called press release distribution companies – they’re not giving you the distribution to the right places for your press release to succeed. is the only way small businesses can get access to PR Newswire’s complete, nationwide distribution network.

      Besides Cision PR Newswire Distribution, You Get Much More

      At, we work hard to live up to our reputation as the best press release distribution company for small businesses.

      So, besides sending your press release out on the PR Newswire distribution feed, every press release is also sent to:

      The journalists and social media influencers most likely to pick up your story from our in-house database containing personal access info for over 1.7 million journalists and social media influencers.

      Over the last 2 decades of being in this business, eReleases has built relationships of trust with a huge number of journalists, reporters, editors, bloggers, and influencers. They know that we will only send them releases that are appropriate for them and their audience, so opening our emails won’t be a waste of time.

      Most of our competitors who claim to have large internal databases have no relationships with anyone and most of them are just mass emailing (spamming) the generic email address for each media source ([email protected],) knowing that most of those emails will go directly to spam folders then automatically deleted so will never be seen by a human being. 

      Is that how you want your precious announcement to be “distributed to the media?”
