The Bad

  • Customer support
  • Transparency

Receiving customer support or contacting customer service is difficult, as there is not a phone number listed for PR Log. Wait time for a return email exceeded three business days, and no response was received, well beyond what would be expected for a reasonable timeframe.

There is a definite void in information about PR Log online, such as who operates the company and how long they have been in business. While not necessarily a significant detail for those electing to use the free plan, it would be helpful for those planning on upgrading to have some information about the company which will be billing them.

The Bottom Line

PR Log offers extensive features for their free products, and the submission process is simple and straightforward. All optimization of a press release must be completed by the user when using the free plans. Minimal editorial support is reported to be available for the paid plans, but with the delay in responding to emails, one cannot be sure about how soon or if this will be the case.

The inbound traffic for PR Log is notable, so one can count on their release being seen by many people. At this time, the free products are fully recommended, while there are some reservations in so doing for the paid products. If nothing else, PR Log is an added tool in a press release marketing campaign, using the free product.
