Merrick talks about the Social Media Release and gives tips for optimizing your press release.
Some of the questions asked:
What’s new in the area of press releases that people should know about?
Probably the first important step in a successful press release is getting picked up and included in Google News. What are some tips you have for people to increase the likelihood of that happening?
Once you’re in Google news, the next big thing most people want to happen is for blogs, magazines, newspapers, or any other media to notice and cover the story. What are some tips you might have that can help people reach that goal?
I noticed you have the ability to include pictures and videos with press releases that are distributed through your service. Is this worth the effort, is one more effective than the other, and how can I best use this my advantage?
Shoemoney.com’s latest blog post BuddyTV Launches Fantasy League Reality TV is a great example of how bloggers can add more context to a conversation that was sparked by a press release – embed the press release within the post using PRTube.
I am big Top Chef fan so I can’t wait for next season to start using BuddyTV’s Reality TV. You can read more about BuddyTV’s Fantasy TV in the PRTube below and see it in action at buddytv.com/ftv.
Press play to watch how easy it is to share your press release using our PRTube embeddable press release viewer. The PRTube embed code is available on every press release on PRLeap.com and also through the share button on the PRTube viewer. You can paste that code onto your company site, blog or social media profile and get the conversation started.

Today we’re excited to tell you about our new easier and secure checkout process on PR Leap. Wednesday, we implemented Braintree Payment Solutions on PRLeap.com, which streamlines the checkout process to just 3 easy steps:
1) Submit a press release;
2) Choose a Distribution Package;
3) Checkout on prleap.com.
It’s that easy.
CREDIT CARD ON FILE
The next time you send out a press release, you can checkout using the credit card on file. Enter the information once, use it again and again. No more having to track down your manager for the company card. It’s on file.
We chose Braintree Payment Solutions because of their great reputation, and because they made the investment to get through the compliance process. This allows us to store your credit card information in their vault and when you checkout the second time you are actually making a request to process a transaction from their vault.
We still accept PayPal. We understand some of you are more comfortable using PayPal. We will continue to offer both solutions for a period of time.
PRLeap. This newest and least expensive outlet also has the fewest press releases being submitted on a daily basis, and is great for smaller businesses. My company has successfully distributed press releases through this channel into Google’s universal results.” By Mark Jackson, Search Engine Watch, Jul 29, 2008
We’d like to add to the article that our service is actually great for any business (small to big) that wants to send out a social media press release and save over $200 in the process as compared to the other 3. For more details, visit our pricing page at: http://www.prleap.com/pricing
Last night we launched a new feature that makes it possible to post your press release to del.icio.us, which has over one million visitors per month, using the tags you assign it. Those same tags are also used as keyword meta tags on your press release to help those search engines that still use them.
Tags are bundled with our social media plans: Premium and Plus. You can assign up to 10 tags with your purchase of our Premium Plan; and up to 5 tags with the purchase of a Plus plan.
To add tags to a press release:
1. Submit press release;
2. Purchase Premium or Plus plan;
3. Click “Add Tags” on right menu;
4. Enter comma, separated, tags;
5. Click Submit.
Note: You may change them or delete them at any time.
