eReleases Announces New Winner in 77-Day Twitter Contest Giveaway: Eight Netbooks and 52 Free Press Releases Remain

August 7, 2009

BALTIMORE, Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ –This October, press release distribution service eReleases(R) (http://www.ereleases.com) turns 11 years old, but the celebration is already underway. For a full 11 weeks, eReleases is giving away one Netbook PC each week and a press release distribution every day (http://www.ereleases.com/prfuel/free-asus-eee-pc-1005ha-77-free-press-releases/).

The prizes — in total, 11 Netbooks and 77 press release distributions — are valued at a whopping $34,000, and any business with a Twitter or Delicious account, blog or Web site can enter the giveaway multiple times.

The winner of Day 25′s press release distribution is Charnell Pugsley. eReleases founder and CEO Mickie Kennedy commented, “We’re pleased to award the 25th press release distribution to Charnell. She is actually a repeat winner in this contest, proving that the more you tweet, the more chances to win.”

Each press release distribution eReleases gives away will provide the same industry-leading service offered at eReleases’ standard rates. Winners’ press releases will be issued over a Tier-1 newswire, targeted to subscribing trade journalists and optimized for online visibility — a far cry from online press release services that blast out releases to free websites with no media contacts or industry credentials.

“We are seeing an energetic response to our social media-based giveaway,” concluded Kennedy. “I can’t help but think that part of the enthusiasm is based on businesses’ understanding that press releases are an integral part of any leading-edge public relations and marketing strategy.”
