Media Outreach Packages

Be a news feature

Did you ever wonder how you could get yourself, your book, or your business in the news?

Stop guessing and start making it happen!

The best thing: We can help you with achieving your goal of “being seen” on news, TV, radio, and other related sites for a small fraction of the usual costs. Plus, we can give you a guaranteed number of sites where your story will appear depending on the package you’d get.

A press release and its benefits

A press release (PR) is an official news piece normally used to announce new products, mergers, or significant pieces of timely information. It is usually utilized by huge corporations and important personalities like TV stars or sports icons, but we believe that you also deserve a chance for that spotlight if you have a real and newsworthy factual story to tell too!

A PR has the following advantages:

  • Functions as your official statement about you or your brand
  • Helps your followers avoid the guesswork and know the real story
  • Features your newsworthy story on where it should appear
  • Widens your audience
  • Spreads the word about your awesome achievement or announcement
  • Increases social presence
  • Reinforces social proof
  • Aids in search engine optimization (SEO) for your brand
  • Enhances online visibility

BREW PR exclusions

BREW is not a PR submission or distribution site. Upon request, what we do for you is to facilitate your PR submission and distribution processes, to cut the chase, and to simplify the process for you. You can avoid the exorbitance, legwork, heavy lifting, and guesswork as you can leverage the competitive pricing and guaranteed syndication for your PR through our network. You’d even get a post-activity PR distribution pdf report with links to actual sites where the PR goes live, so you don’t have to search for your PR on individual sites on your own.

Like any other BREW product or service, we do not guarantee any outright financial return on investments (ROIs), sales, increased rankings, reviews, or other results for your PR. It may or may not produce financial or non-financial ROIs, but such are merely bonuses and not part of our guarantees.

The Basic and Premium PR packages’ distribution includes general sites only for maximum coverage. If you wish a targeted distribution – e.g. specific country or industry, we can facilitate your request when you choose the Platinum PR package. Contact us if you’re interested in upgrading your PR to include more than one distribution targeting parameter.

We do not include PR writing in our Basic and Premium packages. If you want us to help you write your PR text, you need to choose the Platinum option. We currently do not include exhaustive fact-checking in any of our packages, so you have the responsibility to provide us with true and factual information for your PR.

PRs cannot be modified once published. Thus, ensure that the information you provide to us is what really should be published. Similarly, we recommend that you ensure you’ve checked the proof we will provide to you based on what you gave us before you give your final approval to publish.

If you found an error on the PR after it has been published, you are discouraged from contacting the PR sites. They cannot modify your PR. Contacting them for change requests may even force the sites to take down your PR. We are unable to restore deleted PRs. A take-down request will cost you a minimum of 200 AUD.

BREW PR distribution report

You will receive a PR post-distribution report.

Note the following in addition to the abovementioned features and exclusions:

  • The PR report will contain live links to actual sites where your PR appears.
  • Your PR may disappear from certain sites after some time. Thus, we recommend that you take screenshots or print to pdf your PR’s appearance on the sites that you’re interested in for memory sake or reference purposes.
  • We are unable to guarantee where the individual sites will publish your PR. Certain sites may choose to publish it on their other pages and not on their pages. Thus, using the sites’ usual search functions will not make your PR show up.
  • Not all PR versions will show up on search engine results. Some may show up at some point but may also disappear at another point.
  • You need to click on the individual site’s links to view your PR.

BREW PR sample

Below is a sample PR post-distribution report for BREW Awardees’ Premium Package. Use the scroll button on the right side of the pdf report to view the live links to sites where the PR was published.

The actual sites where your PR will be published may vary, although you will get the number of sites guaranteed by your chosen PR package.

Subscribe to our newsletter, so you’d be the first to know what’s new.

Important timelines

We will ask you to specify your preferred promotion date. If the date you requested is not possible, we will let you know.

PRs need to be timely, so it’s important to lodge your PR requests as soon as you can. We will let you know if adjustments need to be made to ensure your PR request’s guaranteed acceptance by the media sites.

Media sites do not usually process PR requests during weekends and holidays. Thus, processing of submissions made from Friday to Sunday or on public holidays may commence the following Monday or the next business day.

PRs can be published around 2 to 8 business days after a final write-up draft has been submitted. We can normally provide you a copy of the PR distribution report in 2 to 4 business days after the actual publication date.

Very important reminder

Some sites may modify the PR to suit their specific requirements. We are unable to make changes to the PR once it has already been published. The only solution in such a worst-case scenario is to unpublish the PR from all the sites, which will then attract a minimum extra 200 AUD payment from you. You are discouraged from contacting the sites directly, as they will have no choice but to take down your PR unnecessarily and without prior notice.

Ensure that you fully read, understood, and agreed with the PR’s full terms and conditions prior to placing an order. If you have questions not addressed in the references and links, it’s best to contact us first via
