 What’s a Press Release?

A press release (PR) is a short, captivating new story announcing important news about a company, product, or individual. It is typically distributed to the media for publication.

The goal of a press release is to catch the interest of a publication or journalist.

What’s the Purpose of a Press Release?

A press release has several purposes, including to announce new products or services, to announce changes in management or ownership, to provide news about important events, and to generate publicity for a company or individual.

What Types of Content Can be Included in a Press Release?

Content for a press release can vary widely but typically includes news, announcements, product launches, events, and more.

How Does It Work

The press release process typically involves drafting a release, sending it to the media for publication, and monitoring the response.

The press release you send should contain all the essential information journalists need to write a story, including who, what, where, when, and why. The whole idea is to help reporters tell your story to their audience.

Why Do I Need a Press Release?

Now that we know what a press release is, the next question is: why do you need one?

There are many reasons to issue a press release. But the most common ones include announcing new products or services, announcing changes in management or ownership, providing news about important events, and generating publicity for a company or individual.

Here are some of the things a press release could help you out with:

  • Announce an important event, such as a product launch, merger, campaign, schedule, news leaders, or workshops
  • Generate publicity for your company or individual
  • Announce changes in management or ownership
  • Promote a new product or service
  • Report on newsworthy events
  • Pre-empt or respond to negative press
  • Share your opinion on the development of your industry
  • Remind people of what your company does
  • Trumpet your recent successes
  • Highlight new partnerships or initiatives
  • Report on awards or accolades you or your team has received

What’s the Difference Between a Press Release and an Article?

While there is some overlap, there are several key differences between a press release and an article.

  • A press release is a short, written statement announcing important news.

An article is a longer, more in-depth piece of writing about a topic.

  • Press releases are typically distributed to the media for publication.

Articles are often published on company websites or blog sites.

  • Press releases are typically shorter and less detailed than articles.
  • Press releases are typically fact-based, while articles can include opinions and analysis.

What’s the Difference Between a Press Release and a News Release?

The terms “press release” and “news release” are often used interchangeably, but there is a slight difference between the two.

  • A press release is a short-written statement announcing important news.
  • A news release is an announcement of something that has happened, such as a merger or product launch.

Things to Keep in Mind When Writing a Press Release

When writing a press release, keep the following in mind:

Keep It Short

Your press release should be brief and to the point, not more than one page. Try to stick to the most important points and avoid including unnecessary detail. If the reporter needs more information, let them contact you.

Make it Easy to Read

Your press release should be easy to read, with short paragraphs and a clear structure. Use simple, straightforward language that journalists will understand.

Include Quotes

Including quotes from key individuals can help give your press release more weight. It also makes it more interesting for reporters.

Include Facts and Figures

If you can, include some concrete facts and figures to back up your claims. This will help make your press release more credible.

Be Relevant

Before sending a press release to any reporter, make sure you know the type of content the reporter writes about and that your story is relevant to their audience.

If you send them releases on topics they don’t write about, they’ll toss it away and never take you seriously ever again.

Include White Space

One page long is the ideal length for a press release, but it’s also important to make sure it’s easy on the eyes. Use plenty of white space to break up the text and make it easier to read.

Use at least 10-point font and half-inch margins.

Check the Guidelines

Before sending your press release to the media, be sure to check the publication’s guidelines for submissions. Some publications have specific requirements, such as formatting and length.

Best Press Release Distribution Services: 6 Important Features to Consider

To get maximum ROI, you need to distribute your press release to the right people in the right way. Here are six important features to consider when choosing a press release distribution service:

  1. Level of Media Traction and Exposure:

The press release distribution company you hire must ensure you gain maximum media exposure and get heard by the right people.

Your announcements will earn a good level of media traction if you hire a competent newswire with a solid syndication system and an extensive list of media outlets.

The media traction you receive depends on a few factors:

  • The authority levels of the media sites picking up your story
  • The level of optimisation the wire service does for your release
  • The reach and syndication ability of the wire service
  • The number of media outlets your release is pitched to

Trust, relevance, and authority are the three pillars of effective SEO. The three are often used as the key metrics for judging success in other marketing channels.

They also play a critical role in judging the success of a press release.

Here’s how:

Authority: Appearing in a high-authority media outlet gives your release more weight and lends it more credibility.

Other media sites are also more likely to share it if it’s already been published on a highly-respected site.

Relevance: A release relevant to the audience of a high-trafficked media outlet is more likely to be picked up and shared by that outlet.

The press release distribution agency you choose must guarantee a significant level of relevance for your story.

When your story gets published on a highly relevant site, the story will receive reading attention from the site’s audience and other media sites.

Trust: People are more likely to engage more with your story when the trust is high.

Your release will earn more trust when it’s published on a site with outstanding levels of trust.

  1. Brand Exposure at a Single Click of a Button:

Your press release distribution company must offer you brand exposure at a single click of a button.

That means that your company logo and link will be featured on the wire service’s website, as well as all the media sites that syndicate your release.

You’ll also get access to detailed analytics, which will help you track the reach and performance of your release.

A press release distribution service such as MediaOne can help you push your brand across the web through their vast syndication network.

When you publish your release with MediaOne, you’ll get instant brand exposure on hundreds of high-traffic media sites. The press releases get indexed almost immediately. Take that as a positive signal on the media site’s trust level.

  1. Guaranteed Placement:

Your press release distribution company must offer you guaranteed placement.

That means that your announcement will be featured on the wire service’s website and all of its syndicated media sites.

It also includes guaranteed placement in the wire service’s daily email blast, which goes out to thousands of journalists, editors, and bloggers.

MediaOne offers you guaranteed placement in their email blast and on all of their syndicated media sites.

  1. Social Media Integration:

Your press release distribution company must offer you social media integration.

This means that your announcement will be automatically tweeted and posted to the media outlets’ and wire service’s social media accounts when it’s published.

The social media posts will include a link to the release on the wire service’s website and all of its syndicated media sites.

MediaOne offers you social media integration with all of their syndicated media sites. This will help you push your story further across the web and increase the chances of it being picked up by other media outlets.

  1. Expert PR Writing Option

The success of any press release campaign starts with the story itself. Finding the right angle and crafting a story that journalists will find interesting is difficult.

That is where an expert PR writing service can come in handy.

Your press release distribution company must offer you the option of having your announcement written by an experienced PR writer.

This writer will help you create buzz out of what many people consider an ordinary story.

  1. Fast and Reliable Customer Support:

Your press release distribution company must offer you fast and reliable customer support.

That means that you’ll be able to reach someone at the company 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns you have about your campaign.

On average, it takes between 18 to 24 hours for most newswire services to respond to inquiries.

  1. Impressive Media Coverage

Press release distribution services aren’t just about sending releases to journalists and bloggers. It’s about gaining as much exposure as possible for your company.

That’s why it’s important to choose a press release distribution company with impressive media coverage.

You want your press releases to show up on several top-tier media outlets, with a reach that extends beyond your typical trade publications.

Before choosing any PR distribution service, make sure it offers the best value for your money. Check to see what media outlets will pick up your news story and make sure they’re all premium.

 

However, you don’t want to do this at the expense of quality. Make sure that the distribution service you choose has a good reputation and offers high-quality services.

  1. Press Release Optimization: Multiple Media and Formats at No Extra Cost

Most press release distribution companies will charge you extra to optimize your announcement for multiple media. Only a few won’t.

By optimization, we mean re-writing and formatting your release to suit print, broadcast, and online media.

They may also include additional photos, videos, or infographics with your release to make it more visually appealing.

A competent press release service will never ask you to pay extra for press release optimization.

  1. Money Back Guarantee:

The best press release distribution companies offer a money-back guarantee.

That means that if your press release doesn’t get picked up by any media outlets, you’ll get your money back.

Make sure that the distribution service you choose offers a money-back guarantee. This will protect you in case your press release fails to get the traction you’re hoping for.

Types of Press Release Firms

Types of Press Release Firms

Not all press release distribution companies are created equal.

Here are the eight main types of PR firms that you’re likely to come across online:

  1. General News Wires

General news wires are the most common type of press release distribution company.

As the name suggests, these companies distribute your press release to a wide variety of media outlets.

This includes print, broadcast, and online media.

The idea behind using a general news wire is to generate traditional coverage for your company. The only requirement is that your story is newsworthy — although their definition of a newsworthy story is a bit of a stretch.

For example, you can send out a press release when your company hits a major milestone, even if it’s not really news.

  1. Broadcast Wires

Broadcast wires are similar to general news wires, focusing exclusively on broadcast media outlets.

This includes TV and radio stations.

If you’re looking to generate exposure on TV or radio, then a broadcast wire is the right distribution service for you.

  1. Online News Services

Online news services distribute your press release to a wide range of online media outlets.

This includes websites, blogs, and social media platforms.

The idea behind using an online news service is to generate exposure on websites and blogs that wouldn’t normally cover your company.

  1. Trade Publications

Trade publications are publications that target a specific industry or market.

They usually have a smaller reach than general news wires, but the readership is typically more engaged.

If you’re looking to generate coverage in trade publications, you need to use a trade publication distribution service.

  1. Regional Newspapers

Regional newspapers cover a specific geographic area.

For example, there are regional newspapers for cities, states, and countries.

If you’re looking to generate coverage in a specific region, you need to use a regional newspaper distribution service.

  1. Local Newspapers

Local newspapers are similar to regional newspapers, but they have an even smaller geographic focus.

For example, there might be a local newspaper for a city or town.

If you’re looking to generate coverage in a specific location, you need to use a local newspaper distribution service.

  1. Syndication Services

Syndication services distribute your press release to a wide range of media outlets, but they don’t have their own distribution network.

Instead, they partner with other companies to get your press release in front of journalists.

If you’re looking for a way to reach a wide audience, you should consider using a syndication service.

  1. Custom Services

Custom services are exactly what they sound like — custom-made solutions for your specific needs.

For example, you might work with a custom service to develop a targeted list of media outlets for your press release.

You might also work with a custom service to get your press release distributed through a specific channel, like social media or email.

If you have specific needs that can’t be met by one of the other types of press release distribution companies, then you should consider using a custom service.

How to Hire a Press Release Firm/Agency

When you’re looking to hire a press release firm or agency, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:

  1. Experience

Make sure the firm or agency has experience distributing press releases to the type of media outlets you’re interested in.

  1. Cost

Press release distribution isn’t cheap, so make sure you get a firm or agency that offers a good value.

  1. Reputation

Ensure the firm or agency has a good reputation and a track record of success.

  1. Communication

Ensure the firm or agency is easy to communicate with and responds promptly to emails and phone calls.

  1. Timeline

The firm or agency must meet your deadline for distributing the press release.

  1. Distribution Network

The firm or agency must have an extensive distribution network connecting to different types of top-tier media outlets.
