Global press distribution: from GBP £160 (approx US$320 or 200€)

Press Dispensary’s global press release distribution service sends your rich media release out to journalists, editors and other opinion formers in any part of the world you wish to reach. We will manually compile your press list and carefully target journalists and editors - on a release-by-release basis - from our database of more than 1.5 million global contacts. This is in addition to reaching the many journalists who have registered to receive releases directly from us.

We also provide a translation service.

And we publish the release on our site in your own free online press office, add it to our RSS news feeds and provide you with your own, personalised RSS news feed. With each release we can include up to five embedded links, your logo and up to two images. If you’d prefer more images, you can opt for an enhanced press office.

Media targets
Before distributing your press release, our distribution experts carefully select the media contacts that should be targeted. Each press release is evaluated and a bespoke mailing list is tailored to the content and angle of the story, the target audience, the relevant industry sectors and the geographic location.

For example:

  • If your business operates in the US-wide healthcare sector, we will target the US's medical and health-related publications, freelancers who cover the topic and more. If it is of consumer interest, we will include healthcare (and, if appropriate, lifestyle and human interest) journalists writing for newspapers and magazines.
  • If your business is in the Spanish property market, we will target all the relevant Spanish publications, and other publications in other countries you require. We will also translate your release into as many languages as you require.
  • If you run an internet-based shop, we will work with you to identify the countries or territories you wish to reach – and, if appropriate, the languages you wish to use – and will target internet magazines, trade publications and IT correspondents as well as the publications, journalists and freelancers who cover your particular retail sector(s)
  • If you are launching a service aimed solely at the residents of Leeds or Louisiana, we will target the local press in that area.

Before your release goes out, we'll send you a list of the publications we're targeting, for your approval.

Newsworthy releases
We'll only undertake to distribute your release if we believe it's newsworthy and editorially appropriate. We're not in the business of charging our clients for releases that have no future. We'll happily vet your initial submission for free and we'll only invoice you if we believe it's worthwhile. Sometimes we may contact you if we spot minor mistakes or can suggest editorial changes that may help your announcement gain better coverage.

If you're new to writing company announcements, you may wish to view our press release writing advice page before proceeding further.

With our distribution lists, we do not charge according to the number of journalists targeted as we believe in producing the best list for each individual release, rather than counting heads.
