The Public Relations Power of The Online Press Release


Donna Price, M.S., M.S. Keynote Speaker, Trainer Facilitator and The Business Success Coach,;; (973) 948-7673, has found the online press release gives her expanded reach and access to her audiences more efficiently than the traditional press release.

Today, when you search for information, where do you go?  Many go to The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times or their own trade publications and of course to GOOGLE.  As more people are reading their news online, the Internet has grown as a popular news provider. 

This past decade has seen the shuttering of many veritable newspapers and magazines, most recently Newsweek.  With fewer places to distribute your press releases, business owners and public relations people are turning to online distribution outlets.

Donna has even found that utilizing online press release distribution outlets have helped push her company’s name higher up in search engines.   There are many online press distribution outlets to choose from – some are no cost while others charge a fee.  To find a list of all the online press release distributors go to:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=d3ddaee4ee84f1b4&bpcl=35466521&biw=965&bih=607

In my own practice, I use, a free press release distribution service and, a paid one.  This is in addition to sending out press releases to a targeted print media list.

To promote her company, Compass Rose Consulting, LLC and her two radio shows, BizologyBuzz and Leadership Navigator, Donna uses a number of online press release distribution outlets such as:, (a free online service),, a paid service,, a paid service,,  a paid service.

Interestingly, Donna tells of an experience she had when one of her online press releases was picked up by The Star-Ledger.  This double hit led to increased awareness for her company.

Donna states, “Press releases have helped my company to rank higher in the search results for the area that I am located and business success coaching.  I have received calls from prospective clients from Hawaii, Maryland, and other areas based on search results that have returned press releases.  The online press release helps to build valuable SEO links back to the Compass Rose Consulting sites.  They have also played a role in getting articles included in print publications.”
