Post Your Press Release Online ? For Free!!

Are you launching a new product or website? Announcing a new book, movie or seminar? Then you've probably created a press release ? sharing the: who, what, when, where, how and why of your special newsworthy item.

However, there is a lot more to a press release than just creating one. Perhaps the most important aspect of a press release is the distribution. The purpose of a press release is to gather media attention. Online there are many places to post your press release. However, if you're on a low project budget, the cost can be prohibitive ? ranging from the hundreds to even thousands of dollars.

Below, I've gathered several sites, forums and lists that will allow you to distribute your press release for free!
