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 must include an image for the Home Page.  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. Post/Article Page: Invitation images and logos are OK in addition to the images mentioned above and will be published here.
  3. For Party Pics: .jpg images at least 500 pixels tall and 72 dpi. We can format the images for you.
  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.

Where your article/post is published:
If you want your article to be published in the Home Page Featured Posts Slide Show at the top of the page, purchase a Featured Post, as described above.

Complimentary posts are published under “Latest Posts” on the Home Page.

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 on SocialWhirl.com 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, Spotlight Q & A, publication package or ads.

However, if we feel our readers would benefit from learning about the product or item, we are happy to write a review or help promote, time permitting, and that promotion will be indicated in the review. To guarantee your product is featured, we suggest purchasing a Feature Story, Spotlight Q & A, ad, or an advertising package.
