Hi Guys,

So do you guys know of any automated press release submitter?

I have been searching around the forum and couldn't find any WSO on this.

    Depending upon how many press releases your planning to release, I would just outsource it to fiverr if it's only one.

      I love press releases but I am not a big proponent of sending out via a Bot in one go. Buy or Rent a Bot that has a drip feature. Don't be in a rush.

      Having said that, do send out press releases as they matter.

    Guys...I would love to see the metrics you get...honestly. I have ONLY used PRWeb.com...and considering their reach, functionality, service, packages and reporting backend, I can not believe that any service that is automated could be anywhere close. Some of my clients dominate their niches (I am talking major MAJOR players in the fitness industry) and they wouldn't think of doing anything BUT PRWeb... however, as an openminded knife, I would certainly love to trip on something that was as effective, but cheaper (just cheaper don't cut it as I am about RESULTS...hits, shares, full page reads, pick ups, etc)

    PRWeb.com is good but is very expensive. Can't afford it at the moment : ).

    I am sure there will be some tools for submitting press release but I can't seems to find anything. The only option I have is icansofts press bot. I ll be glad If I have more options.

      That is an amazing attitude. You can't afford to use a legitimate press release service, so you will have to resort to using a spam bot.

      Has it ever occurred to you that:

      1) You can submit press releases directly to reporters via email..

      2) You can submit to the same sites that spam bot submits to for free. Their TOS prohibits bots, but it allows humans to submit press releases for free.

      Why resort to spamming just because you can't afford a paid service that plays by the rules? Why not just play by the rules yourself instead?

    Jusiam...I understand budget concerns, BELIEVE me, but question: Are you trying to send traffic to an offer that will convert? Are you afraid to spend money for tons of traffic? If the offer is good and the site can convert, the investment should payoff, wouldn't you say?

    I do admit PRWeb isn't cheap, my only thought is, if I could get same results for LESS, then I would simply increase profit margin, but I would never NOT want to get maximum bang for buck at any time. Anyways, good luck, and if you do trip over something that really performs, please share and I will do the same!

    I too am interested in press bot. I haven't tried it out yet, but it sounds interesting. Does anyone know how many press release sites it submits to and what the success rate is? I already submit to some press release sites manually but I am looking to expand to more PR distributors and was wondering if press bot was an effective way to do so.

        Not necessarily... I've had big success with PRLog's free option.

        The key to finding a good press release service (either paid or unpaid) is to look at their distribution list. If they're not sending your release out to the right places, they're a waste of your time.

    wouldnt bother with submitters.

    Go to the main sources, or the high PR sources like PR web.

    One good release there is better than spamming other smaller insignificant press release sites.

    But again the magic is in writing the perfect press release and making it news worthy.

    Senuke has a press release module too. Although $147 p/m is a bit much if that is all you want to do ; )

    I have tried some of the press release submitters, none of them were as effective as sending a single paid PR over PRWeb.

    If you are doing that for your site, I would say better paying off. If you are looking for a cheap PR Submitter maybe to use it for clients, You can look up into Press Release Bot

    There are some software that can do exactly what you want. Take the bot from incansoft for example. Though it depends, how are you going to use it. When it comes to submitting PR articles I recommend you to use unique articles or above 80% unique spun articles. And they should be readable of course.

      I have gotten good results with *********************** in the past and they have a high alexa rank (3160). Also, an old press release of mine with prlog.org still is at number 3 for a competitive term. It's important to read each of their requirements because I know certain press release sites require the e-mail address to be the domain that you use as your website.

        Before you upgrade to a bot, hone your press release writing skills. Submit manually. If you need a list of free press release sites, there is one on my website.

        Once you get the hang of what works and you start seeing traffic, then you decide whether you want to go with a bot or a paid service. If you make more than what you pay for, then it's worth it otherwise just stick with manual free submissions.

      I agree with all the comments which suggest that quality of quantity is the best option. Great move though, Ben. I haven't had a chance to try your software but will do as soon as I get a minute.

      Generally though press releases have never lent themselves particularly well to mass submission. What I mean is that there have never been many submitters competing for your dollar. I remember one called Media Magnet which I never bothered with. I have Pressbot which is good because it doesn't claim to submit to 100s of press release sites. They are carefully chosen and just about worth its dollar for the low price.

      But the main emphasis should always be on quality content. Offline you have to get past a gatekeeper i.e. a journalist who will simply bin your effort if it's garbage. Online the press release sites will emphasis relevance. Even f you invest in PR Web, a press release which is badly written or unclear what's publicising won't have as much exposure than a concise and closely targeted one.

      Bit of a tip. Many journalists using Twitter are reading headlines and first lines of paragraphs. If you can write a compelling headline which is genuinely leading to a newsworthy story on your bit.ly link you stand a chance of combining online activity with offline coverage. Obviously much depends on your Twitter friend profile but many journalists doing specific research have created hashtags. All you need to do is find out what they are looking for and sling them a compelling first line. This the best way of doing it rather than sending them out at random, because you are meeting demand rather than being seen as a spammer (even though you are not).

      I am putting together something special on this subject so watch out for my own development here on WF.

        Don't waste money on PressBot. It hasn't been updated in years and does not work. Read Pressbot reviews / critiques on the web or in this forum.

      I'm a user of Incansoft products and have to say, I like the software products I've purchased from them.

      I've had PressBot for quite a while now and I'm just about to use it (to submit a quality PR that is) ... and where I'd like some advice is, how many PR sites should I submit to at any one time - I presume I shouldn't tick off all those in the software?

      I'm after a natural look to my submissions ...

      Also, should I spin each PR I submit?

      Cheers in advance ...

    Prweb? Overated. I used it a few times with little or no success. And yes, I know what I'm doing. The only way I'd even think of using it now is if I had a story I knew would be picked up my others.

    I now use PRlog. It's free, has great reach, and is now being indexed by Google.

    Whenever possible try do things the way they were intended to be done. I really don't see the benefit of using PR submitting software, it's basically spamming and most of what you fire out there will vanish almost as quick as you send it out.

    If you truely want results; concentrate on a high quality, well written PR with an angle. Then get the PR submitted manually to the top paid PR sites like SBwire and a few others.
    There are a couple of high quality Fiver gigs which distribute to many of the top tier PR sites, it costs a fiver and if your PR is any good the results stick. I use this method quite a bit; many of my PRs make me around $100 a month (each one), so it's worth doing it the right way.

      I second his first choice - PrLog It works better than just about any of the others, especially if you buy the upgrade, but even without it.

      Try to write your press release well, this way it will go viral and you will start getting hundreds of backlinks.
      I'm also using both of these, but they seem less effective than Prlog - still if you want extra coverage, I'd go for it.

      Ever since PRweb has raised its prices, I've been boycotting it. I used to use it - especially for a project where the leads HAD to be from the US. It worked for that, just not terribly well. Most of the other sites attract a much larger proportion of international leads, which works great for IM stuff.

      One site - free press release dot com has raised its prices a great deal, and the truly free version is pretty much worthless. It used to be my go-to place, but now I stopped using it.

      Go to PrLog...

      P.S.: I'm not a fan of using bots - a very select few high quality releases at high quality sites are WAY better than flooding the web with press releases in less high quality places. It's the same as with article marketing. And you know what Google thinks about mass submissions, don't you...

    Honestly, it's not the submitter that will get you in the media, it's your press release itself. And with that, you only need to post it to a few most popular pr sites out there and if it's newsworthy, it will get published. If it's not, no submitter in the world can help you.
