When they find your information on the web or in the newspapers, they call you and make you think that they are producing a segment on you to be distributed to hundreds of TV and radio stations. It sounds SO legitimate. But beware, it is NOT a news company.
They told me that my local TV station has aired their segments. I called the station and here's what they told me: "We never use services like that." So you see, Max World News will tell you any number of lies to entice you.
I used to work in TV news and I know that there is NEVER a fee involved in making a news story -- NEVER EVER. And most TV stations do not want to use footage from other places -- they often have their own video libraries and very capable production staff. So don't let Max World News give you the line about "smaller affiliates who can't afford production." That is pure bull and an outright lie.
Here are some other interesting facts about the company. They have photographs on their website showing their staff with reputable newspeople like Charles Osgood. Well, look carefully at the photo -- that photo was taken at a media trade show. Anybody there could have had their picture taken with Mr. Osgood. In fact, I'm sure Mr. Osgood would not be happy to know that his photo and his name are associated with these scam artists.
Look carefully at their website and you will see that is actually very poorly done and amateurish.
Do not be lured in by Max World News unless you feel like draining your bank account of $10,000 and getting nothing out of it. Sure, you may end up with a nifty looking "news segment," but who is going to want it? In fact, using services like this actually can DAMAGE your company's reputation, because it makes you look desperate for coverage.
If you want real news coverage, hire a reputable PR person.
