Michael Iwasaki, Senior Business Development Advisor and Partner at 24-7PressRelease.com was interviewed recently on BookAdz.com, a site that promotes Canadian and American writers. According to Iwasaki, 24-7PressRelease.com offers affordable press release services, starting with a free release option “for those on a shoestring budget with nowhere else to turn to start off.” But it is, perhaps, their personal customer service that sets them apart.
The company was created to address both industry and customer service needs. “Something that larger companies may have a tough time with due to their sheer size,” states Iwasaki, who has a background in search optimization. Competing with companies like PR Web, their key to success is “fantastic customer service and attention to our customers needs and wants, quickly.” Something which BookAdz.com CEO Cheryl Kaye Tardif praises them for. "24-7PressRelease.com provides a press release service that goes above and beyond sending out releases. They are truly interested in their customers' needs and are willing to assist whenever possible. This company KNOWS customer service! They excel at it!"
Iwasaki says their company is similar to PR Web in that both require higher payments for more exposure. 24-7PressRelease.com provides two levels of distribution―Mass Media Distribution and Regular Distribution. Mass Media Distribution distributes to a pool of over 80,000 journalists, 4,500 web sites and trade publications. Regular Distribution costs $10 - $75, and still provides excellent exposure, however not as in depth. Along with their exceptional press release services, they also offer inexpensive advertising. Despite the steady increase of online press release companies, 24-7PressRelease.com continues to rank high in Google and Yahoo search engines, and to compete with other PR leaders.
Tardif was very happy when Michael Iwasaki agreed to be interviewed for BookAdz.com. “Authors are continually looking for affordable ways to advertise and promote their books,” she states. “And 24-7PressRelease.com has been very supportive of me and my causes, so I wanted to give something back by featuring them on BookAdz.com and helping our authors at the same time.”
Over the past few years, she has used 24-7PressRelease.com as her #1 press release service, and Iwasaki and his company have even sponsored some of her projects. Last year, they sponsored Project Drumheller, a fundraising campaign initiated to help a young six-year-old paleontologist travel to Drumheller, Alberta, to meet with the esteemed Dr. Philip Currie and see real dinosaur bones. Currently, 24-7PressRelease.com is the media sponsor for Authors’ Row, a group of Canadian authors that autographs books twice a year at the Edmonton Woman’s Show.
Cheryl Kaye Tardif is also a Canadian mystery author. She is the author of Whale Song (2007 Kunati Inc. Book Publishers), The River, Divine Intervention and Whale Song (2003). She was recently in the headlines when she responded to a plea from a school in Streator, Illinois, that was asking for book donations for a silent auction to raise funds for a new wheelchair accessible playground.
