On Friday nights, PRNewser clicks through some of those tiny Adsense ads for free press release distribution to see what else is being uploaded beyond the big PRNewswire and BusinessWire services. Lucky for us and for you, Mashable has links to 20 free ones.

Most of these aren’t for Safe Harbor sailing. They might be worth a shot if you have clients on a budget.

Click here to get a dissection of the press release–7 elements, 5 Ws, inverted pyrimid, boilerplate, and explanation of that little “###” at the end.

And if you’re a freelancer, check out mediabistro.com’s recent “What to Charge” article on press release, and sharpen the skills at the upcoming Copywriting Essentials class.

Avoid jargon, stick with AP Style, and let us know how it goes with your free release. Email links and examples to prnewser at mediabistro dot com.
