What Is A Press Release?

What is a press release? Let me just explain a few things about press release. A press release or news release, media release, press statement or video release is a written or recorded communication directed at members of the news media for the purpose of announcing something ostensibly newsworthy. Typically, they are mailed, faxed, or e-mailed to assignment editors at newspapers, magazines, radio stations, television stations, or television networks.

You can write a press release in for new product introductions or enhancements, to build new executives and promotions and to launch innovative business approaches for your business. You can also establish trade show participation to get people know your products or services, and when clients view your press release you’ll be able to win contracts, new client sign-ups mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. You can also tell people about your business awards, speech or seminars.

A press release conveys information that your organization wants to share with the public through the media. After the press release writing is done, there are some procedures and guidelines to submit a press release to the right media outlets. You can look for the e-mail addresses of important bloggers in your field and e-mail them copies of your press release or try to search up the names of key people in your industry. For example, if you are a member of an association, then find the person in charge of media relations in your association. Send press release to that person via fax, e-mail or snail mail.
