- Remember one thing, unless you are a big brand like Apple, or Samsung nobody cares about you. Sounds harsh but that is the truth. Press releases are not a pitch fest, and the media is not interested in promoting you for the sake of you selling more products. That’s the fastest way to be ignored. But then again, a strong press release will help you go through the tunnel and you can share expert advice, opinions, views and information about your products and services to the journalists and the readers. All you need to do is write a strong and informative press release.
- You can write online press release. Keep in mind that you must use the relatable keywords, especially on the title and the first paragraph. Using anchor links to some specific pages of your website can benefit you more in this regard and then you should post the press release to release distribution services.
- Pitch your company’s product to review bloggers but you must do your research properly and pitch the right product to the right reviewer. Pitching about education to book review blogger won’t do any good. The press release provides a lot of background information about the product.
- Make sure that the press release is written by experts and by someone who knows in and out about the company and the product. A good, strong press release can help you grow to a great extent and then again, a poor one can make your business look really poor.
- Your press releases should be unique and you should try writing about something new happening. For example, you can write about the latest product launched, write about the new milestone you have achieved or maybe about a new partnership with a giant company and so on.
