» Big List of Free Press Release Distribution Sites / Social Realist Last edited on June 4, 2008. As promised, here is a big list of free press release distribution sites (something I’m very commonly asked for by clients in the webmaster / online business world). Disclaimer: I in no way advocate the mass-submitting of press releases using automatic submission tools, or even manually submitting to large numbers of free press release distribution sites on this list or not. Frankly, my thoughts are this: If you spend the time to do that, you’re an idiot. If you spend the money to have someone else do that, you’re an idiot. If you’d like to distribute your press releases for free in a way that’s actually effective: A) make sure you have something newsworthy to say, B) make sure your press release is written professionally (or at least isn’t total crap or a blatant advertisement), and C), follow the free press release distribution tips I’ve already laid out previously. Also, I haven’t submitted press releases to each of these sites. 10inShare
