(in case you want to have a look)
PR Web recommend adding a link back to them to add credibility to your web site - good idea, I think!
The Comitatus Group also offer a FREE press release service. Their web address is: http://www.comitatusgroup.com/pr/pr_save.asp
Other Press Release services we've used are: Emailwire.com: http://www.emailwire.com/. They are mainlyfor corporate businesses, but check them out. Also Xpress, who distribute news releases by e-mail. (Their address is email@example.com).
Lastly, John Crescione of eNewsRelease.com is very friendly and helpful with writing and distributing press releases.
We have no connection with these news distribution services, but have found them all to be effective in increasing "hits" after a news release.
Use press releases to get word out about your web site, product or service. They DO WORK.
Lastly, I don't think you need to be a writer to write good press releases. (In fact, it may work against us, as we do tend to "waffle on" a bit and sometimes I don't write in sufficient "business-speak".) My advice is just write in your own "natural" style - one in which you feel MOST COMFORTABLE... as I've tried to do in this article.
Don't take life too seriously and have FUN writing your press releases.
Hope this may help you readers "out there" in cyberspace, as we at Eagle Productions and our associates learn something new about on-line and off-line promotion each day.

Take pleasure in journey.
