Albany.com Announces New Broadcast Feature

Capital Region Businesses Can Add Their Press Releases For Free

ALBANY NY, September 2, 2008 – Albany.com today announced a new online news release and broadcast center at Albany.com/broadcast where businesses and organizations across the Capital Region can add their company news and announcements free of charge.

Albany.com is a city guide to the Capital Region, owned by Internet marketing company Mannix Marketing, Inc., attracting an average of 130,000 visitors per month.

“Local business owners and organizations need as much online and media exposure as they can get,” said Sara Mannix, Founder and President of Mannix Marketing. “Now here is a place where you can announce your exciting news and get RSS distribution for free!”

The new broadcast section on Albany.com offers a no-strings approach to online press release submission and RSS visibility. All entries are reviewed and approved by site administrators before being published on the site and sent to subscribers, but there is no registration procedure, credit card form or step-by-step entry to slow down the process. Users fill out a basic, streamlined form with options to preview or submit.

“Business owners and communications managers are busy, so we made the submission process as fast and simple as possible,” said Jennifer VanScoy, Director of Portal Marketing. “We feel one of the biggest benefits of our new broadcast center is that it literally only takes two minutes to add your release.”
