NEW YORK – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional in coordination with iCrowdNewswire, today announced the launch of Nexis® Newswire, one of the only distribution services in the industry to use paid advertising to drive traffic to news releases. Nexis® Newswire enables targeted distribution to 11 million websites globally, as well as key social channels and Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The news release distribution service leverages the Google Ads network, so issuers can leverage unparalleled targeting to reach their specific audiences—and access unrivaled reporting that tracks real opens and clicks, not just opportunities to see.
“Our customers are always looking for new, effective ways to reach their target audiences—and stay ahead of their competition,” explained Chasity Johnson, Director of Product Management at LexisNexis. “Nexis® Newswire is shaking up the established newswire industry with a modern approach that delivers more.” According to Johnson the addition of Nexis® Newswire completes LexisNexis’s portfolio of media intelligence solutions, giving customers a comprehensive package that supports data-driven decision-making and fulfills customer needs.

With Nexis® Newswire, on the other hand, users can take full advantage of the digital space with paid advertising on premium websites and distribution on voice devices to reach more people and drive more targeted traffic to news releases.”
