Hi ABC 1111,
In addition to PRWeb, Steve`s great list above, and my list of free sites at www.rembrandtwrites.com, you should get some good coverage and stay within your price range. PRNewswire also has a regional release that may fall within your budget (call and ask a rep for details).
Also, try calling a few media members in advance with the "exclusive" news before you send out your release. You may get a feature story out of it.
Thanks, and I hope this helps,
I have heard and I am about to find out on my own that Google ranks press releases base on the service that you use. I believe the PRNewswire is the top rated source. If this is true than like most things in life, it may be worth the extra expense of using a service with a better ranking. Steve put together a good list at the top of this post.
Before you spend money on press-release distribution, you may want to contact your targeted media members first. You may end up with a feature story! For more information, check out http://www.startupnation.com/steps/77/steps-successful-public-relations.htm for more information on this.
