Q: How long have you been in business?
A: Press Flash was established in 1997.
Q: Who receives releases sent on the PF Wire?
A: Releases are first reviewed for content and formatting. Then they are analyzed by a distribution specialist and a target group of 100 editors is formed. The release is personally faxed to these editors with their name on the release. We do this to increase the impact your release by being both in printed form and personally addressed. Finally, the release is sent out on the wire and syndicated nationally.
Q: What kind of guarantee do you provide for PF Wire?
A: You are guaranteed coverage for your release. If a minimum of three media outlets do not pick up your release, you are given a full refund.
Q: How can you guarantee coverage, isn't that against the policies of most news organizations?
A: No news organization will buy or sell the rights to determine their own editorial content. However, given the number of contacts we have and through long experience in the industry, PressFlash is comfortable putting our reputation on the line and guaranteeing that we can provide placement for any release we accept.
Q: Do you accept all releases?
A: No, we do not. Approximately 10% of the releases that are submitted for inclusion on our wire do not ultimately make the cut. We always favor long term growth over short term gain, so we do not risk alienating our trusted editorial contacts by sending them sub-par news items. When a release is rejected from our wire, we always offer free constructive criticism on how to bring it up to standard.
Q: Do you sell my information to any third parties?
A: No, your information is never sold to any third parties. We know that sending your news through our wire is a sign of trust and we will always work to respect that trust.
Q: Can I call and speak with someone about my release?
A: Yes, you can call 800-883-9050 from 9-6pm Eastern and reach one of our distribution specialists.
Q: Can I specify the time/date my release will be sent?
A: Yes, we can accommodate requests for a specific date and hour of release.
