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.
