ewsitter provides a number of public relations services to individuals or companies that desire to promote or market their product or services to Catholics in the United States. The Catholic demographic consists consists of approximately 67 million Catholics in more than 150 dioceses.

Pewsitter is a Catholic news web portal. Our readership is over 100k unique visitors/month and growing. We are a recognized news source by Google. This means that our articles are indexed by Google within approximately 15 minutes of being published.

Pewsitter has a proprietary database containing the names and email address of the more than 125 diocesean newspaper editors. We use this email database to to disseminate press releases, book reviews and other important information to these dioceses instantaneously.

Amongst the range of services offered by Pewsitter, one area of specialty is books reviews. A very important tool for marketing a book is to get it reviewed. Bowker estimates than more than 300,000 new titles were released in the U.S. alone last year, making it increasingly difficult to secure reviews on reputable sites. Kirkus Discoveries is one of the best known review sites, charges $550 for their book review services and the time frame is normally 3-4 weeks. Pewsitter’s fees are less than half of this amount and our time frame is normally less than a week.
