Getting your news out to solid news outlets is a good thing. Spamming people through wire-type services is not. If you access any of these FREE distribution services, pick 2 or 3 and submit different news angles and modify the copy accordingly. Should you have the resources to pay a distribution company, the fee will start at $400 and go up. Your deliverables may vary and could include: more reports, more targeted lists and ability to add images. We also strongly recommend you build your own media contact list. Also see FREE Findz #5 this week for a FREE trial to media lists.
