eReleases Awards More Than 50 Press Release Distribution Prizes in Twitter Contest
BALTIMORE, Sept. 3 /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.
Thus far, eReleases has awarded seven Netbooks and 52 press release distributions to contest participants. The winners of the past week’s press release distributions were Spero Leontaritis, Justin Marinos, Mark Herre, Nicola Geretti, David Tra, Kat Johann and followbackz.
Each press release distribution eReleases gives away provides the same industry-leading service offered at eReleases’ standard rates. Winners’ press releases are 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,” stated eReleases founder and CEO Mickie 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.”

In its 11th year of business, eReleases (http://www.ereleases.com) is the low-cost leader in press release distribution and writing services. The company was founded on the principle that professional press release writing and targeted press release distribution should not be out of reach for small and medium-sized businesses. The company earlier this year launched CauseWire(TM) (http://www.ereleases.com/causewire/), a press release service for nonprofit organizations, and GreenRelease(TM), a press release submission program designed to offset global warming. Through its PR Fuel blog (http://www.ereleases.com/prfuel) and newsletter, eReleases.com features press release tips and resources for visitors who want to learn more about press releases, including the recent article “Free Press Release Websites Are Expensive” (http://www.ereleases.com/prfuel/free-press-release-websites-are-expensive/).
