Contact us now for details: adamscomm1@aol.com

Help us help you: Please be sure your press release is in Word, not a .pdf and  be sure to include the following:

  1. In order to be published, each submission has to include an image for the Home Page top slide show.  No logos. Horizontal .jpg images at least 800 pixels wide and 445 pixels tall (approximately 11.5 inches wide by 6.5 inches tall). If your image is larger, we can resize. Please submit at least 2 .jpg images. If you do not have a wide horizontal image, submit at least 5 other images (not logos) and we’ll see if we can combine a couple to create that image for you. Because of time restraints, we cannot research through a download folder with over 10 images.
  2. Invitation images and logos are OK in addition to the images mentioned above and can be published on the Article/Press Release page.
  3. For Party Pics: .jpg images at least 500 pixels tall and 72 dpi.
  4. Include names, titles where applicable and photo credit for all images.
  5. Press release in Word. Spreadsheets and .pdfs do not work.
  6. Send us the URL to link to exactly the page on your website you would like included in the article.

Deadlines for publication:

  1. Each article/featured post published on SocialWhirl.com is published on the next eBuzzNewsletter.
  2. eBuzz is published each Thursday, unless otherwise designated.
  3. The deadline for submission is the day before, Wednesday at noon.
  4. Ads are not automatically included in eBuzzNewsletter. Those are separate.

Getting published:

  1. For guaranteed publication on SocialWhirl.com or eBuzzNewsletter, we suggest you buy a Featured Post, publication package or ads. A Featured Post is only $250.
  2. If you do not purchase a Featured Post, submitting an article/press release does not guarantee publication. If we receive a press release we believe our readers will enjoy, we try and help get news out as much as time allows.
  3. Full disclosure: SocialWhirl.com is published by Sharon Adams, principal of Adams Communications Public Relations (ACPR) and publisher of the award-winning eBuzzNewsletter. Sponsors, SocialWhirl.com sponsored organizations, advertising partners and ACPR clientele receive priority in publication.
