In this blog, we’ll be taking a look at some free sources that can help you with PR distribution and app reviews. Let’s take a look!

PR Distribution

Press releases can produce major benefits in terms of PR and marketing, even if they fail to achieve placements in major media outlets. The free services generally publish the release on their site and hardly ever have the distribution/syndication clout of the paid services. The benefit of free press release websites is their ability to build on meta-tags, tags, links, and keywords. All of these factors contribute to the traffic on your app.

Deciding how to distribute your PRs can be quite a task. Many of the PR pros utilize media directories for building their own media lists of journalists and news sources. Larger businesses utilize the more renowned news release distribution services, such as Business Wire, specifically for major product announcements and financial reporting. This is because they believe that paid services offer the best placements and widest coverage.

Nonetheless, in order to assist aspiring app entrepreneurs and others hoping to promote their apps, here is a list of free distribution services:

App Reviews

When a new app is being launched, it is natural for the developers to wish that everyone in the world should be able to see their app. However, most of the app review websites you will come across when you search Google are either spammy or require a payment for submittal.

Worry not however, as we have another list for you which includes some really helpful free app review submittals. Of course, prior to submitting you should know that you have to do a little prep work. You will require a promo code in case your app is not free. Also, your app is likely to have a much better chance of getting reviews in case you create an exceptional demo video. This way the reviewers wouldn’t require downloading your app to see exactly how fun and exciting it is.

When you’re ready to get started, here are some of the sites that will help you get a free review for your app:

It goes without saying that it is essential for you to get as much help as you need in order for your app to gain the required amount of exposure it needs to be successful. You can also try PreApps which is a great service for PR creation and distribution as well as app review submissions.
