eReleases Marks 11th Anniversary with Final Netbook and Press Release Distribution Prizes of 11-Week Twitter Contest

September 28, 2009

BALTIMORE, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ — This October, press release distribution service eReleases® (http://www.ereleases.com) turns 11 years old, but the celebration began 11 weeks ago. For the past 11 weeks, eReleases gave 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 — were valued at a whopping $34,000, and any business with a Twitter or Delicious account, blog or Web site could enter the giveaway multiple times.

The winner of the 11th Netbook was Tom Buchanan. The Netbook prize is the Asus® Eee PC(TM) 1005HA, a CNET editors’ choice in June 2009. It comes equipped with features like a 10.5-hour battery life, built-in Bluetooth, 160GB of storage and an ergonomic keyboard, and retails for around $389.

Debra Gullen, Mirror Magazine, Saud Thakur and Sarah Shearer also won the last press release distribution prizes of the contest. Each press release distribution eReleases gave 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.

“I congratulate all the winners who tweeted with us over the past 11 weeks to make our 11th anniversary giveaway a tremendous success,” stated Mickie Kennedy, founder and CEO of eReleases. “We look forward to many more exciting years with our loyal customers.”
