Should I pay $300 for a press release service? Probably not…

Hi Angela & Richard:

I am contemplating using a service to send out a press release for my book. Seems like it may be a good investment of $300.00. I wanted to get your input on the subject though.

What sort of thoughts would you have about press releases in general?

Thanks in advance for any input you can give.

I seriously doubt that using a press release service will result in many, if any, book sales – likely not enough to pay for the release itself.

There are free online press release distribution services. Please refer to 90 DAYS OF PROMOTING YOUR BOOK ONLINE: Your Book’s Daily Marketing Plan for marketing ideas that do work.
