Questions

A press release is a printed or recorded message directed at the public media. It can also be a simple statement provided for distribution to the media. A press statement is similar to a press release – it is information supplied to reporters.

These seven elements form the basic structure of a press release

to help journalists separate press releases from other communications:

  • Eye-catching headline.
  • Media contact information.
  • Dateline.
  • Introduction paragraph.
  • Body.
  • Boilerplate – a short paragraph about the referred company or organisation.
  • Conclusion

The press release headline is a good example: giving concrete facts such as quantitative data and words such as “setting the record’ makes the event sound more impactful, raising interest for journalists and the public. The story will attract a lot of media attention.

The short answer is yes. Press Releases are still essential and will be for a long time for reasons such as search engine optimisation and marketing. Sometimes, Press Releases can adversely affect SEO if not done the right way.

For a press/news release for advertising and public relation purposes, the rates as a professional writer should be: Per hour: high US$182, low US$30, average US$80. Per project: high US$1,500, low US$125, average US$700. Other: high US$2/word or US$750/page; low US50₵/word or US$150/page; average US$1.20/word or US$348/page.

The primary purpose of all press releases is to sell something significant and specific and to do so clearly. Beyond that, a press release is a record that follows to a strict format and serves three marketing and promotional goals: To inform the media about an event so that the media can publicise to the public.

Tuesday is the most suitable time to send the press release, followed by Thursday. The worst day to send the PR is on Friday. The most suitable time to send the press release is in the morning.

Press releases can be given directly to local newspapers or to free and paid distribution services. The distribution service continues to deliver the content online, as-is, to their media outlets for publication.

The ideal number of words for a press release is about 300 to 400 words – three or four short paragraphs with some quotations. It is essential to be concise. If the PR is longer than that, there may be unnecessary words that do not contribute anything to the story.

How to distribute a press release?

  1. Find journalists who might be interested in the press release.
  2. Get the journalists’ contact details.
  3. Craft a killer pitch.
  4. Send the press release pitch at the right time.
  5. Follow-up on the release.

Send the release to the local media outlets.

  1. Daily newspaper in a community: Contact the News Editor or the Editor in charge of the section that relates to the content.
  2. For a weekly newspaper: the Editor.
  3. For a Magazine: the Editor or Managing Editor.

One organisation that distributes press releases, Comtex, processes up to 80,000 of them a day.

Tuesday is the most suitable time to send the press release, followed by Thursday. The worst day to send the PR is on Friday. The most suitable time to send the press release is in the morning.

Eight SEO Tips for Press Releases

  1. Decide the Angle. The story needs to be a story, not just a generic announcement.
  2. Research Keywords.
  3. Create a Descriptive Headline.
  4. Write the Copy.
  5. Write the Company’s “Elevator Pitch”
  6. Use Keywords as Deep Links.
  7. Format for the Web.
  8. Include Multimedia Elements.

Qualities of a Good Press Release

  • Storylines. Great press releases start with great stories.
  • Information vs promotion.
  • Exposure. Distribution of the PR to the public is as important as the creation of the PR.
  • Professional finish. Keep in mind that the press release is not an e-mail!

The eight most common types of press releases include event, book release, product release, new business, new hire, rebranding, partnership, and award press releases.

When writing a press release, it is essential to adhere to the affirmed press release structure and format – a headline, subheadline, two or three paragraphs for the body, a boilerplate, and contact information. Not using the formal format, will mean there is less likelihood to get media coverage.

Three number signs/pound symbols (###), centred directly above the boilerplate or under the body copy in a press release, indicating to media that there is no further copy to come. The reporter or Editor will know they have the full document in hand.

A press release boilerplate provides a brief description of the company and essential business information at the end of a press release. It adds credibility to the press release, so it is more likely to get selected by the media. A boilerplate is typically 100 words for all kinds of press release types.

7 Easy Steps to Write a Press Release

  1. Find the Angle: Data, Newsjacking or Emotional. Create a news release while keeping in mind that the pitch is for journalists.
  2. Write thePress Release Headline.
  3. Write the lead.
  4. Write the Body Paragraphs.
  5. Include Useful Quotes.
  6. Write Your Boilerplate.
  7. Put Media Contact Details.
