Sending press releases

A press release is an effective means of communication to improve an organization or institution’s image and reputation, and build on its existing perception. Press releases are frequently used by the public relations professionals and a key communication activity to get your message across to the media and your target audience.

A press release goes through three stages; writing the release copy, distributing the press release, and reporting coverage. In order to ensure that the press release is successful, each of these stages should be carefully planned and executed.

The first stage where content is written by experienced editors or copywriters is followed by second step, called press release sending or distribution process that involves sending it to editors and reporters. It should be noted that no matter how well and carefully the content is written and constructed, a small mistake while sending the press release can undermine its impact. To make sure that the time, labor and money spent does not go to waste, each stage must be handled with maximum care and diligence. ​

Localizing the press release is essential in distribution

There are some important points to consider before going on to the last stage; global press release distribution. First of all, the content should be localized according to the each target country or region to maximize the reach of a press release. Press releases must be translated to the local language to get more attention and reach more audience. One other essential point is to work with a PR agency that has a strong distribution network. A PR agency that can reach to more media outlets and contacts can offer more visibility in media. Moreover, getting visibility in the social media channels will contribute to overall PR coverage.

Points to consider when sending a press release

1A press release should have newsworthy content for the media to consider it for publishing. Sending it to the relevant editors and reporters is equally important. Sending a press release about a senior appointment in the company to a journalist who specializes in health news would not only be irrelevant but also lead to an unfavorable perception about the organization or institution.
2When sending press releases, the only focus should not be print media, and in addition to newspapers and magazines, they should also be distributed to online news sites and blogs. It should be noted that online channels feature 33 times more news content than print media.
3The headline should not be all caps to draw attention, and words like “attention” and “important” should be avoided. You should also keep in mind that press releases with “trap” headlines are not considered newsworthy and undermine your credibility with the editors and reporters.
4When sending the press release, distribution date should be provided and contact information should be included in case the reporter needs further information.
5When sending the press release, copy (Word or another text file) and images (jpg, etc.) in acceptable resolution and maximum 1 Mb in size should be attached to the message.
