How is PNN different from press release news wires ?

PNN is a free news service for manufacturers. News wires are fee-based service providers whom companies pay to issue releases for distribution to other news outlets. Most newswire services are broad and generic; they are not industry specific. Press release services are used as marketing tools by organizations looking for self-promotion. These wire services accept all releases as long as the organization is willing to pay the fees associated with distribution services.

Product News Network is a true new product news service. PNN is also the only new product news service that is targeted for the industrial marketplace. PNN only publishes news stories on products that are truly new to industry. PNN editors eliminate press releases that attempt to promote old and existing products. They can do this because PNN does not charge manufacturers for reviewing and syndicating their information. PNN editors write news stories only on those news items that meet the PNN editorial standards.
