Spread your news in Europe

Many PR portals all over the world distribute press releases for companies at no cost. Also in Europe there are a number of PR portals which SA companies could use to spread their news in the European markets – at no cost and with a few mouse clicks.

Easier still: E-mail your news to me and I’ll publish it for you on a few good, free, European PR portals.

I’ll list the best (free) PR portals in Europe, as I go along.

Here is one from Switzerland with reasonable readership statistics to kick off with:


Here a BIG German one with a separate section for English releases. It’s free and boasts 7,2 million unique visits per month. Not bad for free, even though not all visitors will read the English releases:


And here a popular (free) German-based one:

OpenPR.com (for English)

OpenPR.de (for German)

And here a UK-based, free, online PR site called Realwire, which recently launched a German section.

And here a German-only one:


Here a brand new one (multi-language):

PR News Events

And here Google’s free, multi-language offer:


To put the free services in context, here one which charges:

Ereleases.com (read: e-releases)

Here the Mercedes of press release portals, with global reach, but not free:

PR Newswire.com

Here the list of German publications, portals etc. they pass your press release onto, if you place on their site. Impressive!

PR Newswire (Germany)

Or this free Austrian-based, but very international, one:


And if you’ve got a bit of money to spend (between $50 and $80 will do), you can go for the mother of all news distributing tools in the universe at the moment. It’s been on the web for a week now, and it’s making all kinda waves. It’s hot, it’s fast and (I believe) it’s effective (mostly in the US until now, but no doubt worldwide soon):

Muck Rack Twitter Press releases

Or go to the mother of all (not free, but huge):
