I’ve heard a lot about Brand Featured lately, so I decided it was time to try out their services myself.
In this Brand featured review, I’ll walk you through my experience with their “as seen on” service. I’ll cover what it was like ordering from them, what the quality of their press release is like, and whether their publishing service is legit.
Adding an “as seen on” badge to your website can do big things for your business. It’s a great conversion booster, and you also getting high-quality backlinks at the same time.
Is it worth paying Brand featured to do this for you? Follow this complete review to find out.
Overall BrandFeatured Review
I give Brand Featured 3.5 stars out of 5.
I can’t complain much about this service because Brand Featured did exactly what they advertised. They wrote a short article about my business, distributed it to news sites, and got it published over 100 times. After this, I could add those valuable trust logos to my site.
On the downside, there were a few areas that I would have liked to improve. The overall quality of the press release wasn’t fantastic. For what you pay, the press release is also very short. There are other “as seen on” services that provide better value.
If you just want to add a badge to your website, then Brand Featured is an efficient service to help you do this. If you want high-quality PR for your business as well, then you might want to consider other services.

My Brand Featured Experience
To see just how good brand featured really is, I ordered an article for my website.
For this Brand Featured review, I’ll share the process of ordering an article and what my overall experience looked like.
Ordering an Article
Placing your order with Brand Featured is very straightforward. All you do is choose your package (I went for the “Pro” article), pay for the article, add your details, and wait for delivery.
Upon ordering, you get sent straight to a checkout page like this:
Once I completed the order, I shared the necessary information about my business for them to write an article. After this, you just wait for the article to be delivered.
Brand Featured offers three different pricing options. These are:
- Basic: $297
- Pro: $397
- Unlimited: $597
In the Basic package, you provide the article and they simply distribute it and publish it across their network. You will need to hire an additional content writing service if you choose this option.
The Pro package includes a 200-word article written for you. The Unlimited package includes a 400-word article written for you, with unlimited revisions.
There are certainly more affordable “as seen on” services available.
Brand Featured advertises a 10-day delivery period for new articles. There is also the option to get an extra fast 5-day delivery at an added cost. I opted for the standard 10-day option, and true to their word my article was delivered within 10 days.
So far, my experience in this Brand Featured review was very smooth. Now for the important part though - the quality of the article they wrote.
I’ll start by saying the article was only 200 words, which really did not leave enough room to highlight the true value of my business. Other “As seen on” services, like those from Contentellect, provide articles that are double the length. For a 10-day turnaround time and nearly $400, a 200-word article was underwhelming.
The quality of the press release content was also very standard. It didn’t feel like a true representation of my business, it just felt like a brief overview from somebody who had never actually experienced my services before.
I requested a revision on the content (you get two free revisions), which did improve things slightly. However, I still wasn’t blown away by the article.
I guess the main reason to use Brand Featured is to get mentions and backlinks from high authority sites. So, I went ahead and gave the article the green light for distribution.
I was impressed with how Brand Featured handles its distribution. They guarantee to publish on 100+ news sites. As promised, they delivered a PDF with all of the live links to my article.
This was published 102 times on sites that were affiliates of big-name publishers like Fox and NBC. Very impressive. This included live articles on Google News and Digital Journal.
The main reason to use a service like Brand Featured is that you can add trust badges to your website once your article has been published across different news sources. Unfortunately, you have to create those trust badges yourself. As I have zero design skills, this was a bit annoying.With a service like Contentellect, you get trust badges like this included in the package:
Once I had figured out the trust badges, my site definitely looked a lot more convincing. I did see a slight increase in conversions after adding these badges to a few pages. The good thing is that you pay for your press release once, and you can use these badges forever.
Overall, a solid service that delivers what they advertise. Although, it’s good to know what other “as seen on” services are out there.
