Online PR Media offers several how-to guides and videos on their site to help in writing a professional press release. Online PR Media offers a special package specifically targeted to Social Media. This package is affordable and includes many of the tools which are helpful for those wanting to increase their social media presence.

Online PR Media offers a money-back guarantee should a customer upgrade to a paid press release package and the release not meet the editorial guidelines after being reviewed by the editors and sent back for re-writes (to the customer).

The Bad

  • Standards
  • Transparency

While none of the competitors offer a money-back guarantee, there is a catch - should the press release not meet Online PR Media's standards, it is sent back to the customer for a re-write. If it doesn't meet standards again, the customer is eligible for a refund. Customers are then referred to the site's "partner" for professional press release writing (at an additional fee of $249), which includes a $79 press release package. Some digging discovered that the "partner" is owned and operated by the same individuals who own and operate Online PR Media.

When gathering information, there is a hint that the companies are closely intertwined and "referrals" are sent back and forth, with some hard-selling to use services from the "partner." This would be less of a concern if there was more transparency by the companies, rather than as an independent relationship.

The Bottom Line

The lack of specific information about the types of analytic data with Online PR Media is a concern, since one cannot plan for future campaigns without measuring their past campaigns and ROI.

Online PR Media is a small company, with only a few listed employees (gathered from the partner site, SEO Content Solutions). This is not a reason to avoid the company, nor one to choose it, but there are other press release distribution services companies with larger inbound traffic numbers.

The price jump from between tiers is significant and one should be aware of the relationship between Online PR Media and their "partner." The lack of transparency in this issue is more of a concern than the fact that the two companies are operated by the same people.

Online PR Media is not recommended at this time for the above reasons.
