7 Critical Press Release Writing Tips

Published on 5/21/2019
For additional information  Click Here

 

1. Start strong: Your title and initial lines should briefly and directly convey what you want to say.

Include the “who, what, where, when and why” in the lead of your press release.

The remaining part of your press release should include supporting facts and examples.

2. Make it easy for the media: Some media agencies and journalists will grab your press release and carry it in their publications with slight editing or no alteration.

But even if it’s not used word for word, journalists may use it as fodder for other stories or to create their own story ideas.

The more information and details you include, the less work the media has to do.

3. Think like the reader: Your press release should be able to keep the reader’s interest. Put yourself in the reader’s shoes.

Would you want to read your press release?

4. Make it relevant: Try to point out real examples to support the message you want to communicate.

Show why your information is important and how it benefits the reader.

If your release isn’t newsworthy, don’t expect anyone to read it.

5. Support your story with real facts: Facts make your point stronger and tell the journalist you’ve already done much of the research for them.

If you pull facts from other sources, make sure you attribute them.

Avoid fluff and add-ons.

And never make anything up.

If content seems too good to be true, tone it down or you could hurt your credibility.

6. Include company information: The press release should conclude with a short description of your company, including where your company is based, what products and service it provides and a brief history.

If you are creating a press release for more than one company, provide information for all the companies at the end of the release.

Also include contact information, both phone number and e-mail, for each company’s spokesperson.

7. Be concise: Avoid using superfluous adjectives, extravagant language, or unnecessary cliches.

Bottom line: Enjoy your writing - it  will be visible to the reader/s.
