NewspaperDirect Inc., Vancouver, B.C., has announced that its online aggregated news site, now offers free media monitoring services for print editions of more than 350 newspapers from around the world.
With PressDisplay.com, users can set multiple keyword and phrase monitors, and receive automatic e-mails at the moment an article that includes their search terms is published. One click connects them to the story in its original context in the paper, often hours before that paper hits newsstands.
While other monitoring services track topics and keywords in blogs or media Web, NewspaperDirect calls itself the first to offer free monitoring of local and international printed newspapers.
PressDisplay.com provides access to exact replicas of every printed issue in its roster of newspapers, showing stories exactly as they appear in printed editions.
Besides just how a company, product or ad is positioned in the printed publication relative to other stories or ads (e.g., section and page placement, font size, picture position, format, etc.) and providing copies of the original, color article, complete with any graphics, articles can be translated on the fly in up to 12 languages.
Smart bookmarks allow subscribers to set up folders for topics, providing a repository that others in their organization can access. With a corporate PressDisplay.com subscription, anyone in a company can contribute to shared folders with their own search results.
PressDisplay.com offers free, pay-as-you-go, personal unlimited, corporate and professional subscription plans.
