Evolution of PR LEAP: Change is good

in New Features, Updates & Fixes

Starting January 1, 2008, PR LEAP will no longer offer a free press release distribution.

After four years we have decided to phase out the free service, so we can re-purpose our time and energy on building more features and tools for prleap.com. This will also allow us to spend more time verifying all accounts and vetting all press releases, which will help safeguard the service in the future from evildoers.

As announced last week, PR LEAP soon will allow you to send out a social media release with video, news photos, audio, documents, and logos. These new features are part of a major service update that will rolled out in December. The service update includes a new and improved user interface and checkout process. We have also revamped our press release distribution packages into the following three:

Premium $149 (Our Best Plan)

  • 5 Media Attachments (Google Videos, YouTube Videos, news photos, audio, documents or logos)
  • Google News1
  • AP National 2
  • UPI National2
  • Moreover CI-Metabase Inclusion
  • Ask.com News3
  • Next Day Distribution
  • Homepage Placement
  • RSS/XML Feed Inclusion
  • 2000 word limit (1,000 more than Plus)

Plus $99

  • 1 Media Attachment (Google Videos, YouTube Videos, news photos, audio, documents or logo)
  • Google News1
  • AP National 2
  • UPI National 2
  • Moreover CI-Metabase Inclusion
  • Ask.com News3
  • Next Day Distribution
  • Homepage placement
  • RSS/XML Feed Inclusion
  • Up to 1000 Word Limit (400 more than basic)

Basic $49

  • Google News1
  • Ask.com News3
  • Moreover CI-Metabase Inclusion
  • Homepage placement
  • RSS/XML Feed
  • Up to 600 word limit

The decision was not easy, but after much consideration we strongly believe it’s for the better. All press releases in the archive before Jan. 1, 2008 will stay online at no cost. Any edits and changes made to any press release are always subject for review.

Sincerely,

Mario and Merrick Lozano
