Summary of SBWire Reviews
SBWire doesn’t have many user reviews online but of the ones we found, it seems that they have generally negative ratings.
What SBWire Does Well:
From the reviews we found, SBWire provides a good price point for small businesses. Even the 3-star rated reviews have rated their pricing at 4-5 stars.
What SBWire Does Not Do Well:
A negative reviewer from BBB said that their after sales service is practically non-existent. They had a lot of typos that needed to be corrected from the press release which was already sent out. They said the Live Chat customer representative kept them on hold for 11 minutes only to be given a callous response after. The user said that the two tickets he issued that day for urgent corrections were also ignored.
SBWire offers only one type of package but it is categorized into two plans depending on the frequency and volume of press releases. For a one-time send or a non-regular submission, business owners can get a press release distributed online for $39.
|Industry and Regional Targeting|
If the client plans on distributing a certain number of press releases in a month, there is the Monthly option. This will allow business owners to submit 3, 5, 10, 15 or 20 online press releases for distribution in one month at a cost that will range between $59 to $299 per month. SBWire does not offer writing services with their PR package, but they do allow the addition of photos, videos, and audio.
When clients subscribe to SBWire’s PR package, they get permanent hosting on SBWire.com, syndication to 200+ news/media sites and major search engines, as well as major social networks and Associated Press journalists.
