We are rolling out a number of great new feature enhancements designed to provide you with an improved user experience, more scheduling options, and increased visibility for your images. Here are the new features now available through PRWeb:
All PRWeb news releases are hand-reviewed by our dedicated editorial team to ensure each release meets our editorial standards. Traditionally, customers upload a final copy of their news release when they are ready to submit it for editorial review and distribution.
Save your press release as a draft before submitting
With draft mode, you can now create a news release in our system and save it as a draft without submitting it for review. When you are ready, you can go back, finish it up and submit it to our editors. Note: if you save as a draft, then it will not go to an editor for review and won’t be distributed until you have specified that it should be submitted for editorial review and distribution.
ALT tags help images perform well in keyword driven searches. For instance, if you are distributing a picture of your cat without an ALT tag, it would be difficult for a search engine to know that the picture is of your pet cat. Adding an ALT tag that reads “my cat” will help explain to the search engine that the picture is indeed about your cat. ALT tags also make your site more accessible to text readers used by the visually impaired.
To help explain the steps involved in uploading your release and provide you with an indication of where you are in the process, we now offer an enhanced navigational device to guide you.
Enhanced navigation shows you where you are in the process
You can now synchronize your communications more effectively by choosing the time of day you want your news release distributed.
If you need your news release out fast, simply select priority distribution when you choose your distribution package. With priority distribution, your news release is immediately sent to an editor for review. Provided your release meets our editorial standards, we’ll publish it right away through our distribution network. Note – priority distribution is available between the hours of 4AM (PST) and 6PM (PST) and is contingent upon editorial approval and processing time for any additional services ordered.
