What is the history and popularity of the app?

Prezly was created to help users successfully reach out to their audience. The concept was born as the founders identified a need for an easy way to send out press releases. During their time in advertising, Frederik and Jesse noticed that producing a professional press release with various media was a challenge for many. To help users find a better option, they created Prezly. The Prezly team is based in Belgium and includes Frederik Vincx, Jesse Wynants and Gijs Nelissen.

What are the differences to other apps?

Prezly is an attractive option for many users because it simplifies the process of building and sending an effective press release. Users with little or no design experience can create an eye-catching press release that includes images, videos and other content. They can also monitor the success of their marketing campaign through detailed analytics features included with Prezly.
