Frequently Asked Questions About Press Releases

How do I add anchor text links to my press release?



How do I embed Facebook and Twitter streams into my press release?



What is the difference between the different press releases packages you offer?


The primary difference among the different packages we offer is their level of distribution. Higher priced packages get more distribution and full-page reprints (including anchor text links) around the web. Clicking the "compare packages" button under each press release package will show you the specific details that separate the different packages.


How quickly will my press release be published?


We make every effort to process press release submissions quickly. Press releases that are part of an upgraded package receive premium placement and expedited approval. If you need your PR approved quickly, choose one of our upgraded press release distribution packages.


How do I get started submitting a press release?


To submit a press release, either paid or free, you need to register for a free account and create a username and password. Your free account gives you access to your own press release dashboard where you can add, edit, or delete press releases at any time. Once your account is active, you can decide on our home page whether or not to submit a free or paid release. Click the appropriate button and follow the prompts.


How long will my press releases stay on Online PR Media?


Indefinitely. That is why our upgraded packages are such good value! The anchor text links included in the paid upgrade will be valid forever -- so just as your page is gaining some traction with rankings, it won't be pulled due to an arbitrary time limit. How soon after I submit a press release will it actually be distributed?

All press releases submitted through Online PR Media will go through an editorial screening process. Paid upgrades receive prompter attention and are approved before free releases.


Once I save my release, can I still make changes?


Yes -- you can make changes to your press release anytime on the Online PR Media site. To make changes to your press release, simply log into your admin panel, click edit and make changes. However, if you have chosen a $79 package or a $389 package, your press release is syndicated to a large news and press network. Once your press release has been "released" into the world, it is nearly impossible to make changes other than by contacting the editor of each website that picked up your news release.


Does Online PR Media publish press releases in languages other than English?


At this time, Online PR Media publishes press releases in English only.


What kind of contact information does Online PR Media require?


Many journalists will not use releases as news without proper contact information. This also helps your release get picked up for any local news settings that journalists or bloggers may have filtering news. Online PR Media requires the following fields be filled out when submitting a press release for distribution:

  • Media Contact Name - the name of the person to contact with questions regarding the contents of the release
  • Email - the email address where the Media Contact can be reached
  • Phone number - the phone number of the business

If my press release does not meet editorial guidelines, and I've paid for an upgrade, will I get a refund?


Absolutely! Our goal is to help you publish quality press releases. If your press release does not meet our editorial guidelines, we'll send you information explaining how to lift the editorial hold. However, if you choose not to make the changes to lift the hold, we will refund your upgrade fee with no questions asked.

I've been using your service regularly for a couple of years now and continue to be impressed. The submission process couldn't be simpler, despite the fact that submission options are pretty comprehensive, and the review/approval is very fast compared to some of the other services I've used. What impresses me most though is the volume of real traffic releases here consistently generate.
