iCrowdNewswire’s ReleaseLive press release distribution services offer a variety of features, including the following:
This is not a complete list of all of iCrowdNewwire’s ReleaseLive features, so we recommend checking the website for the full list and more detailed information.
Those looking for a press release distribution service will be happy to learn that iCrowdNewswire clearly states its service prices. There are three packages to choose from: The Basic, The Enhanced, and The Super Premium.
All three of the plans include geographic and demographic targeting (users can select the country, state, and city with zip/postal codes and the age group and interests). The release is translated into eight languages for global reach. Additionally, users can view the industry of the target market and see the actual press release distribution report.
The reason the pricing is different for each plan is where the press release is distributed. The Basic plan costs $250 per release and includes distribution on Facebook and Google Networks.
The Enhanced plan includes distribution on Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, Facebook, and Google Networks. This plan costs $350 per release.
Lastly, the Super Premium plan includes distribution on the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, MarketWatch, Bloomberg, and Yahoo Finance. The Super Premium plan costs $450 per release.
iCrowdNewswire’s ReleaseLive™ distribution services work with several leading financial media sites and networks. This allows public and private businesses to place their releases in front of financial and social media investors looking for exact details about their organizations.
iCrowdNewswire guarantees placement on more than 50 recognized, branded sites, and targeted engagement with investors and social media platforms.
To contact an iCrowdNewswire representative, users have several options. The company includes a Contact Us page on its website, including an online form and email address. However, iCrowdNewswire also has a live chat feature that allows users to ask questions while browsing the site.
Although iCrowdNewswire discloses its pricing, it is more expensive than its competition. The Basic plan is the company's cheapest option, and it still costs $250 per release. This may be a reasonable price for larger companies and enterprises, but small companies may find it too expensive.
iCrowdNewswire is a relatively young company within the industry (having been established in 2015). So when it comes to detailed information and consumer reviews, there isn’t a lot of information. iCrowdNewswire also doesn’t have a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. While this may not bother some consumers, others may want more information about the company and its process.
That being said, iCrowdNewswire does have a user guide PDF that shows users step-by-step instructions on how to use the ReleaseLive service. However, this isn’t easily accessible on the website, and consumers will have to click through several pages before seeing it.
