    Does anyone know if http://lightningreleases.com/ is ever coming back?

    And are there any other press release sites that I can use in the meantime? Besides prweb?

    I am not familiar with lighteningreleases.com. Here are some PR sites that have free and paid options. If it’s links you’re looking for, most of the free options don’t allow for a link in the content, but you may get one in the contact area.

    Lightning Releases is a paid, less expensive alternative to prweb. Does anyone know of a similar service? It doesn’t have to be free.

    What made them unique?

    Lightning just made things easier. Other press release sites would require multiple phone or email verifications and when you need to post for multiple clients on a daily basis, quick and easy is preferable. Lightning streamlined the posting process in terms of adding links and images and they allowed for bulk purchases so they were affordable. They had a fast review time and excellent distribution which could be tailored by country or state. Every release posted could be found very easily through any search engine.

    I’m wondering if the site will be up again soon, or else I’ll need to find a new site for distribution.

    I’ve only used PRWeb. Yes, they’re expensive, but their reporting, targeting, and analytics have gotten more sophisticated over the years, and PRWeb does what you’d expect them to.

    Not the answer you were looking for, I realize, but hope it helps.

    I have another answer that is probably not the one you’re looking for, but why not compile a list of media contacts in the client’s own market area and submit your news directly to them?

    Those are the media outlets that actually care about and will publish real news for that area and get it in front of consumers who have the potential to become your clients’ customers.
