4. FAQs

  • Where are vendor press releases syndicated? Press releases on Hotel Tech Report are syndicated to (1) HTR's newswire, (2) the news ticker throughout HTR, (3) your profiles, (4) category pages, (5) similar/related profiles and (6) theRewind monthly newsletter
  • Do you syndicate to 3rd party sites? We don't syndicate to 3rd parties.  
  • Should I also post my press releases to other 3rd party PR newswires? You absolutely can; however, the purpose of newswires is typically to get picked up by mainstream media coverage.  That said, unless you are announcing a major funding round or mainstream media 'buzzworthy' milestone--typically mainstream media will not pick up hotel tech (and most B2B) news and announcements.  For that reason it typically doesn't make sense to pay hundreds of dollars to post press releases on other PR newswires when the only media platform that will likely pick up the story (and has a relevant/targeted hotel tech buyer audience) is HTR and you can just post for free right from your dashboard.
