Write a Press Release Today to Market Your Business and Get Back Links


So you want to write a press release.  You’re thinking in the right direction and you’ll get more benefits than you imagine with a press release.  A well-written press release will accomplish a couple of things.  This article will discuss how to write a release and the benefits you’ll get by publishing it online.

First, let’s get into how to write a press release.  The easiest way to write a release is to answer the following five questions.
  1. Who
  2. What
  3. When
  4. Where
  5. Why
Who is making the accouchement?  What are they announcing? When is the event taking place? Where is the release coming from and why is the announcement beneficial to consumers? 

Write Your Press Release by Answering the 5 Questions

Ideally, you want to answer those five questions in the first paragraph of the document.  By answering the five questions in the first paragraph you will ensure your press release doesn’t get reject by distribution outlets.  Here’s a quick example.

Where: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Who: XYZ company today announced - What: the company acquired their competitor – When: - last week – Why: to increase their product offering to consumers.

Asking yourself those five questions will also help you write your release a lot faster simply because you know exactly what to focus your attention on.  After you’ve answered the questions then you can give readers a little background on both companies and how the announcement will benefit consumers.

Most press releases are between 450 to 550 words.  I’ve seen releases that are 800 words but that’s too much.  No one is going to read that much text unless it is something they are passionate about.  Also, most distribution outlets will only accept a release that’s more than 350 words.

Don’t use the words ‘you’ – ‘our’ – ‘my’ in your press release because it will be rejected.  It should be written the third person.  Your release should also contain contact information and a short ‘about’ section that’s about 5 or 6 lines long.  To see a sample press release online please click here so you can view the format.  Pay attention to the last part of the release so that you know what to insert in the contact section.

The benefits of a press release are that you will create brand awareness.  The more people that read your release, the more exposure you’ll get.  Also, they may share it with their friends so make sure you include the social media sharing buttons if you’re given the option when you submit your release. 

Press releases also provide SEO benefits, but only if you use your keywords inside of a hypertext link.  You should also include three hypertext links in your release, but no more than five.  Make sure the links are on your keywords.  For example, if your keyword is ‘business signs’ you’ll want to create a hyper link on that keyword within the text like I did on this sentence.

Do not publish your press release to a distribution service that doesn’t allow hypertext links.  You’ll be wasting your time.  There are plenty of services that allow hypertext links.  Links in your release provide SEO value, but they also give the reader something to click on if they want to visit your website.

It doesn’t matter how popular the service  is or how much traffic it receives, it readers can’t click on a link you’re wasting your time and their time.

Why Choose a Press Release Writing Service?



If you’re considering using press releases as a way to promote your business you’re going in the right the direction.  Press releases are a great way to accomplish several things at the same time.  With a press release, you can create back links, increase brand exposure and generate traffic to your website.

Choose a press release writing service if you don’t know how to write one and you don’t want to take time out of your busy schedule to learn how to do it.  If you want your release published on Google News you should use a professional service as distribution outlets may reject a press release that’s not well written.

To give you an example of how a press release can be used to generate traffic to your website, I once wrote a release about a free Twitter training webinar.  After I published the release I received more than 150 unique visitors to my blog within twenty-four hours.  I used a free service for that one and I kept getting traffic for weeks after the event was over.

Press releases are powerful.  But as with anything else there are certain things that make one press release more effective than another one.  Keywords are an important part of Internet marketing and depending the keywords you choose for the title of the release, you may or may not receive traffic.

The keyword ‘SEO’ is extremely competitive which means a press release alone may not drive traffic to a website simply because it may not be found online.  Regardless whether or not a release will drive traffic to your website, it will provide extreme SEO value provided you use anchor text links on your keywords.

So how do you know whether or not to hire a press release writing service?  In order to answer that question you first have to decide on several things such as your budget, whether or not you’re going to use a free press release distribution service or a paid service.

Press releases can cost upwards of $200 or more depending on where you want it to be published.  Most services that publish to Google News, Yahoo News and Bing will charge you more than a couple hundred dollars to write then submit your press release. 

Oftentimes the distribution charges alone can cost more than $100.  You can write a press release yourself then pay a distribution service to submit it for you.  Doing it that way will save you a lot of money, but if your release isn’t written as a newsworthy article, it will not get accepted by Google News.
