Free Press Release Tips

Posted in web notes at 12:38 pm by Jon Symons

This page has a free press release template and many tips for how to create good quality press releases.

Is your news “newsworthy?” The purpose of a press release is to inform the world of your news item. Do not use your press release to try and make a sale. A good press release answers all of the “W” questions (who, what, where, when and why), providing the media with useful information about your organization, product, service or event. If your press release reads like an advertisement, rewrite it.

The press release is an often overlooked method of publicty…most people think only in terms of the big “News” and therefore don’t consider press releases.

But the many media outlets in the world have a huge need for filler stories and press releases like, “GardingCentral.com Releases The Top 10 Tips to Get Your Garden Ready for Spring” can drive a pile of visitors to your website and also land you [and your business] on television.
