What is a press release?
- A press releases should promote your goods and services in an interesting way, they’re not adverts.
- Press releases are short, factual news stories sent or given to the media to encourage editors/journalists/broadcasters to feature the story in their publications/programmes.
- Journalists are quick to spot organisations who dress something up as news in order to get FREE advertising.
- They can also be published on the originator’s website (often on the news and/or media page) and adapted for company magazines, newsletters, ezines, emailers etc.
