Newswire’s Top 10 Most Viewed Press Releases of 2022

If you’ve been following us for some time, you might have noticed we talk about the value of consistent press release distribution

Consistent press release distribution is an excellent way to build brand awareness, attract website traffic, improve SEO performance, generate leads, and more. 

Over the past year, our team published 130 press releases for our Newswire brand. 

The topics of these press releases varied. We covered team members who earned features in Forbes and Medium, client success stories, awards, and more.

By developing and distributing newsworthy topics, we attracted hundreds of thousands of views.

Out of the 130 press releases we distributed this year, here are our top 10 most viewed press releases. We share why they were successful and how each headline contributed to its success below.

These press releases are ranked from one to 10. One being the most-viewed press release this year. 

  1. How Newswire’s Media Advantage Platform Transforms Press Release Distribution into Real Results for CEOs

Traditional press releases are seen as a marketing must-do. A company has something to announce and they write a press release, check it off the list, and hope the media covers it. 

We’ve turned the industry on its head (in the best way possible) with our Media Advantage Platform (MAP).

Because of that, Chief Executive Officers reap the benefits.

The use of the word “Transforms” in the headline highlights the power of our program and piques the interest of our readers.
