OzMedia Press & Media Release Distribution
Our goal is to get your release the widest possible coverage in the media. We ensure that your release arrives at its destination addressed to the correct recipient in their preferred format and with an immediate impact to maximise its chance of being published.
Who Can Use OzMedia's Distribution Services?
Whether you are a media professional, corporation or a small business with a great story to tell, OzMedia can help you get your message out to the world. After a very simple and FREE sign-up procedure, we give you direct and immediate access to one of the most powerful and up-to-date media distribution systems in the world.
How Much Does it Cost to Send a Press Release?
OzMedia charges 60c per recipient (or 50c if you are a charity or N.P.O). You get to create your own distribution list on-line to suit the audience for your release. So for example, sending to all the "Computers & IT" editors across Australia would cost around $33. If your release is more general and you wanted to target all the "Major Metro Press Radio & TV" in Queensland this would cost around $20 or to go Australia Wide around $130. Ultimately you are completely free to pick and choose who gets your release.
There's no charge to register an account with OzMedia, or hidden monthly charges. Payment is either by monthly account for regular users, or pre-paid for casual releases.
Before sending your release, we provide you with a detailed online price estimate before every transmission to help you manage your budget. We also offer free telephone assistance and support.
Can OzMedia Help Write My Media Release?
Absolutely. We offer a basic service where we can give your release a polish for $50, or write your release from scratch for around $200. For larger organisations we offer consultancy services to plan media campaigns, write creative copy and graphical design.

How do I Know Who Has Read My Release?
After transmission we will send you a full summary report detailing, wherever possible, the organisations that have seen your release. We do this by embedding a tracking image in every e-mail transmitted and counting the number of times an organisation has opened / read the e-mail. This will give you a good indicaction of the initial reaction to your story.

Choosing the distribution list for your press release is simplicity itself. Just choose the press selections and the geographical region for distribution. Where necessary you can also select from our specialty editors & publications.
Media Distribution - Selection By Locality
One of the more powerful aspects of the OzMedia selection system is the ability to target specific and small geographical regions. This is especially useful for government or local authorities, political commentary, publicising local events or raising awareness about local issues. Targeting local media also means very small expense compared to targeting an entire state or region in order to get your release read by the correct publications.
Selection is made from thousands of media contacts Australia wide (and/or USA & Asia) Press, Radio, TV or by specialty distribution lists or geographical region. We can accept most file formats such as HTML, TIFF, PDF, Word etc and have your message immediately transmitted to the relevant fax and/or email destinations (depending on the preference of the recipient).
The OzMedia database has been compiled by people with over 30 years experience in building and maintaining highly accurate media contact databases and who deeply understand the media requirements of Industry, Government, PR Companies, Associations, Lobby Groups, Political Parties and other Organisations.
OzMedia can also provide access to Australian Government Lists at Federal, State and Local level. OzMedia can also distribute your media release on the internet to gain more traffic and ultimately improve your search engine ranking.
