Emailwire.comô Explains Benefits of Online Press Release Distribution

( EMAILWIRE.COM, July 07, 2004 )†San Diego, CA -- You have launched that business you planned, and it is time to market it to your audience, so your first approach is to write a press release and send it to your local media outlets: newspapers, radio and television stations.
