News Direct is all about flexibility. From our adaptable workflow to customizable geographic options, we designed a platform with more opportunities for control and customization.
News Direct is powered by a team of news distribution experts, including our founder Gregg Castano, the former president of Business Wire. Our deep industry experience gives us a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities everyone in the newswire business faces. With these in mind, we developed a platform that provides solutions to the pain points PR and IR pros experience in their news distribution workflow.
Our platform offers more geographic options than any other distribution service—for the same flat rate. News Direct maintains distribution relationships with the world’s leading news agencies and commercial service providers. Press releases and standalone media can be delivered through newsrooms, trade press, and influential bloggers.
Plus, our partnership with Agility PR Solutions enables users to more precisely target their trade distribution. Within the US, comms pros can choose among national, regional, state, and metro area distributions—again, for no additional cost. Internationally, they can select Basic and Premium distribution packages or by region or country.
News Direct has also completely reimagined the news distribution workflow, adding flexibility and efficiency. Seamlessly collaborate with trusted stakeholders in the Collaborative Content Studio. Automatic version and document control track every change and comment, to eliminate confusion.
