You can pay via credit card or Paypal on the checkout page. Credit card information is verified and secured by Stripe.

For Paypal, you are directed to the PayPal website so payment information doesn’t go through us at all. For credit cards, we use Stripe as the payment processor. Stripe is well-regarded in the payment process industry and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.

Stripe and Brand Featured forces HTTPS to ensure your payment data is transmitted safely. HTTPS encrypts your information and verifies the integrity of traffic between your browser and the destination server.

We not do store your payment information on our servers. All information is sent to Stripe, which is then encrypted on disk with AES-256. Brand Featured is given a unique identification key which is how we reference to your payment information when requesting charges with Stripe.

More information on Stripe’s security practices can be found on their website. Third-party information on Stripe can be found on its Wikipedia page.

You won’t be published to the main website (for example fox.com) as those are reserved for national headline news. But you will be published to local affiliates such as FOX 28, FOX 43 etc which are the official sites for the TV stations. For example, FOX 43 is for channel 43 in a specific city and is part of the FOX news network. It’s similar to getting published in a local newspaper.

As per Google’s best practice guidelines, we send them out as ‘nofollow’. Top SEO experts agree that nofollow backlinks are actually good for SEO. See this google search.

Every search result on there states that nofollow improves SEO, some with case studies they’ve tested. Our own customers have also reported higher SEO rankings after getting Brand Featured. See our reviews for more info.

As with any news announcement, your article has a “shelf life” – the news gets “old”. The time it stays on a website is determined by each news site, and Brand Featured does not remove your press release at any time unless it violates our terms of service. Some news sites remove them after 2 years, some after 90 days. Some host them indefinitely. The fact that you have been featured will always be true and you can proudly claim that as long as you like.

Assuming the article is written, less than 4 days.

Unfortunately no, once it has been released it is in the hands of each news site that has published it.
You do have the option to reach out to each news station individually, but most likely you won’t get published because they typically only work with clients who can provide a bulk number of articles per month. It would take you many months / years to build a network of over 100 new sites from scratch.
As we are publishing to our news network, they will be categorized as press releases.

Writing the Article

Many writers require lengthy questionnaires from you that waste your time. We only require 3 things: your website, the topic you want the article to be about, and 1-2 quotes that best describe your business. We’ll do the research to form your article with just that information.
It’s your choice: the Basic package is lower priced but you need to write the article that we’ll publish. While the Pro and Unlimited packages have the article professionally written for you.
Yes, our professional writing staff will first research your business, then write a custom article highlighting your business in the best light, with links back to your site.
Yes, after we write the article we can go through up to 2 rounds of revisions before it’s published for the Pro package, or unlimited revisions for the Unlimited package

– The article must be between 200-500 words.

– Your article can have no more than 1 link per 100 words.

– The headline must include the company’s name.

If we write it, it will have a 200 word body, a headline, and subheadline. If you want to provide the article, it must be between 200-500 words.
