Part 1 – Content is the key
We cannot but stress the importance of a well-written press release.
When writing a press release, consider your target audience. At the same time, keep in mind that part of your audience will be an editor, reporter, or reporter. This is important because these are people who, if they like your story, will publish it and provide you with additional information.
Make sure the first paragraph of your press release answers important questions like who, what, when, where, and why. You have a sentence not to lose an editor/journalist.
The content of your press release should be specific, easy to read and up-to-date. A well-written press release doesn’t have to be a novel. Remember that the purpose of the press release is to encourage the reader or reporter to contact you for more information. You don’t have to tell your business the whole story of life. In fact, shorter press releases (usually 175 to 300 words) tend to attract more attention if they are well written. What for? Because many professional journalists can search for brief information to take a place in a magazine, newspaper or website. Have you ever seen short clippings on the side of a magazine or on a website page? Guess where the information comes from.
A carefully crafted and informative press release is sure to attract the attention of journalists. Take your time and carefully edit your release.
Part 2 – Don’t embellish or exaggerate the grammar of your press release
As we already know, a well-written press release at the perfect time will give you the visibility that everyone is looking forward to and hoping for.
Now that you’ve written your press release, sent it for distribution, and received phone calls and emails about it, you’ll no doubt have questions to answer.
If your press release is embellished, you will quickly lose confidence in yourself. Keep in mind that this loss of trust will also affect future press releases. Journalists will remember one source.
When using facts and figures to improve your story, be sure to specify the sources of these figures as much as possible. The reason is simple. It adds credibility. If you publish numbers or information, even if the information is correct, people may accept the theory of “it should be too good to be true”. Again, although it is completely harmless, it may seem that the truth is stretched. Again, your press release may be ignored in the future.
If the information is correct and you can’t save it, be careful to let them know when they will contact you. This is not always possible, but keep in mind that you don’t want to deactivate a reporter/editor.
Part 3 – Grammar
Before you send, make sure your press release has been read, edited and subtracted. A poorly written press release will be a very quick stop for any journalist or editor. A poorly written press release will also have a negative impact on any business.
In this way, you can catch grammatical errors. While some of the best copywriters sometimes lack grammar or typos, make sure you read, edit, and correct your press release, greatly reducing the likelihood of errors.
Print your press release. By printing out your press release and reading a paper copy, you’re more likely to find bugs. This is great for press releases that can be a bit long.
You might ask a colleague or friend to edit your press release. Sometimes different eyes can detect an error. Although you have read and reread your work, sometimes you can correct the error if you are very focused.
Wait until morning and reread your press release. You won’t believe how much night sleep can make a difference to you when you write. If you’re smart and fresh, re-read your press release to make sure it’s exactly what you want it to be.
If everything is read correctly and there are no errors, send your press release for distribution.
24-7 Distribution press releases Newswire is currently working with a number of editors so they can write or edit your press release.
Part 4 – How often should press releases be sent?
At 24-7 Press Release Newswire, we offer a variety of types of press releases, from simple to professional.
Our professional distribution of press releases is covered by our media distribution program and includes the dissemination of press news to approximately 80,000 journalists, more than 4,000 websites, volunteer journalists requesting news that are sent directly to their inboxes and, of course, relevant professional publications. Major websites and industry publications include Yahoo Finance News, MSNBC, The New York Times, USA Today, Ask Jeeves, Google News and many others. In the 24-7 press release, the cast is also sent out for signing up to subscribers who subscribe to make our headlines and use them as content on their websites. When our headlines are updated, their headlines are also updated. Part of this remarkable press spread is attributed to our partnership with PR Newswire.
Now that we’ve surprised you with the type of press release we’re capable of, we need to let you know that a poorly written press release is almost impossible to recover. This means that while in some places your press release will be published (but not in many) if it is poorly drafted, it will be immediately ignored. It also means that reporters will review it and ignore it. They are also likely to ignore future press releases from the same source/company.
What are we saying? In short, although we can provide this wonderful distribution, if it doesn’t be a well-written press release, you won’t get a lot of feedback.
Part 5 – How often should press releases be sent?
We asked ourselves this question over and over again and now we have decided to finally include this information in our advice on writing press releases.
