We are excited to now have the ability to send wires through the application, but understand that you are probably in need of a guide to this integration. Please read below to learn how to start sending your releases through the Meltwater application with Newswire, or click here to read our Newswire FAQ:
What is Newswire?
The Newswire feature allows you to assemble a press release and send it to global, national, and/or regional wires–––groups of publications and downstream partners.
Newswire is integrated into the Meltwater Platform, so you now have the luxury of sending your release whenever you'd like (whether it's in real-time or scheduled), on your own and without the hassle of going through a representative.
View, edit, duplicate, delete, and cancel scheduled wires directly from the landing page. You can also filter the display for draft, scheduled, or sent wires.
Pro Tip: Take two minutes to set up your company information from the settings icon. We will confirm that your company information is all accurate and you will be good-to-go when it's time to send your first release. Because there is a one-time vetting process during the initial set-up, don't wait until the last minute to send your first wire.
Select the newslines the wire should be sent to. Information about the amount of credits used is also updated as you select. Search through the different regions for subregions and contact your account manager for an upgrade at the click of a button.
Construct the press release all in one page. The main window is used to supply crucial information for the wire, including headline, sub-headline, body, and contact info. The side panel can be used to add extra information such as up to 2 images, up to 3 industries, subjects, and tags.
You can preview the release prior to sending, saving, or scheduling it. Once the press release is looking right, you may choose to send it now, schedule it, or save it as a draft to work on later.
When sending and scheduling, you will be able to preview the release one more time and are informed on how many credits will be used. List emails for those who should receive notifications about the scheduling and sending of the release.
