Founded in Reality.

In “olden days” newswires services could justify charging customers on a “per word” basis. Back then, newswire copywriters literally typed press releases into Teletype machines. Humans typing warranted newswires billing companies to transcribe news.


Human transcription disappeared about the same time as leaded gasoline. Today newsdesk staff transcribe nothing. Instead, we take a press release you wrote as a Word document, convert it to HTML and Issue. Word count and page volume are irrelevant, because of today’s file compression, and instantaneous / International dissemination is a key-stroke command taking milliseconds.

Newswire Pricing Facts: All Accredited Tier One newswires provide ostensibly the same compliance reach. Distribution is mandated by the Exchanges and Regulators in order to maintain Tier One status. However, the prices newswires pass on to you are directly the result of each newswire’s own ability to control their own spending; (*staffing, office space, ability - or inability - to effectively negotiate distribution costs).

Q: Why should their spending problems become your spending problem?

TheNewswire.com itself was founded in 2004 by real world journalists who quickly recognized this inequity and changed the industry by introducing Flat Rate pricing.
