Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much does it cost to issue a press release?

You can issue a press release for free using a free press release distribution[9] service. However, some services can cost as much as $1,000. The price you pay depends on the goals you have for it, how you target it, and what you include in it. For example, many press release distribution services charge more to target a press release nationally than locally. Some also charge more to embed videos or images into your release. Still, you could also simply email your press release to individual journalists of your choice for free.
