First Steps

Subscribe to your organization’s RSS feed

On your readMedia Dashboard you'll see a Publicize your news section on the right side of your screen. Here you'll find a link to your organization's home on the readMedia Newswire and a direct link to your news feed. Follow the link to subscribe to the feed and/or incorporate it into your website or blog.

Upload your letterhead and logo:

Click on the Press Releases tab at the top and then on either My Logos of My Letterhead on the right. You'll then see a link to create a new letterhead/logo.

Upload your personal contacts

Click on the My Contacts tab to view all of your previously uploaded contacts. To import more contacts simply click on the New Contact link to add one person at a time or the Import Contacts button on the right to import a list of contacts from a .csv or Outlook file.

Make a distribution list with only your personal contacts

To create a distribution list for your personal contacts, just click on the Build a List button on your dashboard or go to the Distribution Lists tab and click on the New Distribution List link. In the list builder click on the Add Your Own Contacts to Your List box and select the personal contacts you want to add. After saving your list you'll be able to select it any time you send a release.

Choose your favorite lists

From inside your account, you can mark any distribution list as one of your favorites. Simply go to the Distribution Lists tab to view all of your created lists. Click on the star next to any list to mark it as one of your favorite lists. You can also mark any readMedia's circuit lists as your favorites. When it comes time to send a release, your favorite lists will appear at the top of the list selection screen.
