Press Releases can sting back if you don’t focus-

  • Headlines should be catchy

A strong headline (and, for that matter, email subject line when you send out the pitch) will pull in journalists seeking good stories. Your headline should be as engaging as it is accurate.

  • Get right to the point

Get the message of your press release out quickly. Every important point should be addressed in the first few sentences. The subsequent paragraphs should be for supporting information.

  • Substantiate with numbers

Leave the artistry to the writers — pack your press release with hard numbers that support the significance of your product or announcement. If you’re claiming a trend, you need proof to back it up. Quantify your argument and it will become much more compelling.

  • Proof reading is a must

Proofread your press release and let a few other people proofread it as well before sending it out. Even a single mistake can dissuade people from taking you seriously.

  • Include your contact information

A common oversight that can render a press release ineffectual is a lack of contact information  to follow up with. Whether you or someone else at the company is the point of contact, don’t forget to include an email address and phone number on the release (preferably at the top of the page).

  • One page is best — and two is the maximum

As with most good writing, shorter is usually better. Limit yourself to one page, though two pages is acceptable. This will also force you to condense your most salient information into a more readable document.
