There will also be a fee to cover location events for requested services.
macys.com 03/09-03/13
For Press Releases posting the cost will be $39.99 for word content not to exceed 350 words with one photo or flyer. For requested additional 100 words the cost is $9.99 and for additional pictures the cost will be $5.99 each.
For Video Releases, clips, or movie trailers the cost is $75.99 (You provide embed code). Accompanying promo reels will run an additional $29.99.00 each.

For a Story Posting Package, the cost is $149.99 with 8 photos limited to 350 words. If you want additional items, you will pay the prices under Press Releases or Video Releases.

“We did not wanted to implement this new policy, but we have expenses to pay every time the we do something for somebody.” said Maria Maty Escobar, President and CEO. She continued, “Almost every time that we go in the field we have to pay our photographers, our video editor, our writers and contributors. Publicists are paying wire service companies to distribute their content and even other online publications are charging different fees. Some Public Relations firms already pay for covering their event or publishing their content because they want to reach a massive audience.”

Many of our photos and articles get reposted on the above mentioned publications. If you want your photo or article to be published on our additional online publications you need to pay only $19.99 for each additional site.

Mrs. Escobar concluded “Diversity News Magazine tries to save money, but people need money and our associates deserve to be paid for their craft and they also have many expenses.We hope public relations agents understand that they get paid to brand a product, service or person, so it is fair for them to invest the money that they get from their clients and continue branding them.”

Diversity News is now a full media company offering video interviews on location and distributed through our YouTube Channels ‘Diversity News TV’ and ‘Diversity News Hollywood’. Diversity News not only publishes or posts your content, but you also get free marketing all over the internet in our other social media networks ‘Diversity News Magazine’ (Facebook), ‘Diversitynewsee’ (Twitter), ‘Diversity News’ (Current TV), ‘Diversity News’ (Stumble Upon), ‘Diversity News’ (Google Buzz), ‘Diversity News’ (Digg), ‘Diversity News Publications’ (MySpace), ‘Diversity News’ (WordPress), ‘Esteban Escobar’ (Linked In), and many more.
