“Throughout my online marketing career I’ve used countless release services, is the only one that has stood the test of time and has been used on a continuous basis. The administration panel is simple and quick to use, the pricing model is one of the best around and the resulting exposure of the press release never ceases to amaze me. I’ll certainly be using again soon and wouldn’t hesitate to heartily recommend to anyone serious about their online advertising campaign!”
