The Bad

  • Tracking reports
  • Scheduling
  • English only
  • Distribution

24-7 Press Releases states that they provide tracking reports, yet there is little specific information available on their website about the types of data which is included on these reports. When queried about specifics on the reports, customer service agents simply parroted back the information from the website.

Scheduling one's press release for a specific day or time of day is not possible at this time. There is no way to target press releases for more detailed demographics or geographic areas.

24-7 Press releases only accepts press releases written in English since their distribution is to the US only.

Limited Trial Plan does not distribute release beyond hosting it on 24-7 Press Releases' site.

The Bottom Line

24-7 Press Releases is reasonably priced in comparison to their competitors and is unique in that they offer a free trial. While the trial is limited in its scope, their efforts to make their product accessible and easier to use are commendable.

More information about the analytic reports from 24-7 Press Releases would be helpful for those wanting to do straight comparisons between companies.

24-7 Press Releases is a recommended company for those looking for a press release services agency to increase their reach via press releases.
