Top press release distribution services for startups

Press releases are an effective way for businesses to get their latest news, earnings and updates out to customers and the media.

They often include information on recent partnerships or acquisitions, revenue growth or expansions and other news on the business, and having the right tools to send them out is a good way to easily distribute all announcements.

Press release distribution services can be strictly directed to journalists and analysts, to a particular market industry, or a bit of both. Regardless of who you’re trying to pitch to, a distribution tool is the most effective way to reach them.

Techworld looks at some of the best distribution services for startups and small businesses to consider.
