Free and Cheap Press Release Sites for Small Business – Marketing and Social Media

Want to get the word out about your business and earn valuable backlinks at the same time?

After a deep dive into the world of online press releases, I have come up with a short list of the best online Press Release sites for entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small businesses. Many hours of research have gone into whittling a long list down to these three. After using a wide array of press release services, I believe that these are solid, reputable choices. I have had good experience using them, and with good results.

The vast majority of online press release sites are not as professional as we wish, and most should be avoided so as not to embarrass your company.

However, these sites offer a choice of free and paid, with the free options being solid services that meet the basic needs of most small businesses. Especially attractive:

  • They are relatively high Page Rank (PR). According to Google[1], “PageRank is what Google uses to determine the importance of a web page. It’s one of many factors used to determine which pages appear in search results[2].”
  • They are “Do-Follow[3], meaning a backlink from this domain (when they post it on their site) gives you “link juice” – or, ‘extra credit’ from Google and other search engines.

Getting all this in one press release service is a feat accomplished only after doing the extensive research which led me to these sites. So enjoy! (PR 6)  Syndication Service[4]

Through a single page submission form you are able to input all of your press release information. Their editorial process is fast and you will receive notification within a few hours. If you are looking for additional distribution, you can try out the media outreach[5] feature.
