How To Get The Media To Write About Your Business

1 year ago 340


When it comes to writing press releases, the first thing that has to be done is finding out what your audience wants. What are they looking for? What do they want? Then you can craft a press release that will get them interested in your brand or business.

Decide what your press release is about.

  • Decide what your business press release is about.

  • What is the newsworthy aspect of your business? For example, if you have a new product or service that will make people more productive and happier at work, consider this in your title and body text. Or maybe it's an office opening with free lunches for employees!

  • What is the newsworthy aspect of your new product or service? If someone were writing about this for a newspaper or magazine (and they probably wouldn't use a generic title like "New Product"), how would they describe it? What makes it unique? How does it solve an important problem for consumers? How does it fit into existing trends in technology/businesses/etc.?

Identify your audience.

The first step to getting the media to write about you is to identify your audience. Who are you writing for? What kind of person would be interested in this information, and why?

You should know who your target audience is, as well as what kind of people will be reading your press release. If you're doing a PR campaign for a new product or service, it's important that everyone knows who they're targeting: the media, investors (if applicable), potential customers and influencers such as bloggers who can spread the word further still.

Once we know who our market is comprised of—and whether or not they're interested in hearing about us—we can move on to figuring out how best we want them hear about us through traditional means like advertising campaigns or social media posts/links which attract attention from search engines like Google News & Yahoo News etcetera.)

Create a catchy headline.

The headline is the most important part of your press release for business. It's what gets people scrolling through their inboxes and opens their eyes to what you have to say. If it's not catchy enough, people won't read it; if it isn't informative enough, they won't take action on what you have to say; if it doesn't stand out from other headlines in their inboxes or social media feeds (or worse—in their Facebook newsfeeds), they'll forget all about your message and move on without giving your business a second thought.

So how do you create an effective headline?

Write a lead that hooks the reader.

To get the media interested in your business, you have to write a lead that hooks the reader. A good lead has three things:

  • It's short and sweet. The shorter it is, the better. If your headline is too long or wordy, then people won't read it--they'll skip over it in search of something more interesting (like another headline).

  • It uses quotes from people at your company who are experts on what you do or know about the industry as a whole (or even just about one aspect). This gives credibility to what you're saying and makes me trust that it's worth reading because other people agree with my opinion too!

  • It includes numbers like "a percentage increase" or "the average duration between sales." This shows me how much business there was last year compared with this year--it also tells me how much money was made last quarter compared with previous quarters; this helps show whether things are getting better or worse overall...and so on!

All these elements together allow readers without having any prior knowledge about our brand/product line/service etcetera know exactly why they should care enough not only visit us today but also buy whatever we offer here today!"

Give more details in the body of your press release.

In the body of your press release, you should provide more details about the news item. This can include:

  • A quote from a company spokesperson

  • Links to other online sources for background information on your business or product (for example, an industry blog)

  • An actionable call-to-action summary and closing paragraph

Remember your Boilerplate information.

Your company name, address and phone number are the most important information in a business press releases. If you're not sure how to format this information, ask someone at a local printing company or call your local newspaper office.

The CEO's title will also help readers understand who they're dealing with when they read your article. It's better if you can include quotes from employees who work at the company in order to add credibility and realism to their statements about what it's like working there!

You should also include dates on which specific events occurred so that people know when exactly those things took place (for example: "On July 21st" or "In October"). This way they know exactly when any changes took place within the organization itself – which could potentially lead them down another path during their research phase!

Identify Keywords.

Once you've written your press release, it's time to identify the keywords that will help people find it. Keywords are words that people use when searching for information on Google, Bing or any other search engine (SEO). When someone searches for "media training" or something similar, they'll be looking for an article about how to attain this type of training—a keyword like "media training."

Keywords should be in the title and body of your press release so that search engines can easily index them. It's also important to include up to five keywords at the end of each sentence in order for those phrases to show up in SERPs (search engine results pages).

Provide a quote.

The quote should be from an authoritative source.

The quote should be relevant to the subject of your press release and in the first person.

The quote should be short and snappy, so it's easy for reporters to write down on their phones or whiteboards, as well as copy-paste into their articles (which will make them look like they're trying).

Include links to other online sources for background information.

  • Include links to other online sources for background information.

  • Create a list of relevant sites, then link them in the article. If you don't want your company mentioned by name and don't want it to be associated with any particular site, just use "Online" as the domain. For example: "This is an article about...and all the other great things we do." This way, people will know what they're reading is not just about your business but also about other companies that are doing similar work!

Call to action summary and closing paragraph.

The closing paragraph should summarize the key points of your release, and encourage readers to contact you for more information. If it's a press release, include your contact information in this section as well. It should be written in a way that makes it easy for people who don't know you yet to find out how they can get involved with what you're doing—and what they'll gain from doing so!

The final sentence will usually be something like "If interested in learning more about my project," or "Sign up here." This is not an invitation for them to sign up for anything specific; rather, it's meant only as an opportunity for them without any obligation whatsoever on their part (which means no spam emails from us).

By following these tips, you'll be able to write a great press release that'll get attention for your brand or business.

Now that you know how to write a press release for new business, it's time to get started.

The first step is to create a press release template that includes all of the information needed for your company's announcement. Your template should include:

  • Your name and contact information (email address).

  • A description of what is being announced (company name, product/service offered).

  • The date and time when the announcement will be made public.


The most important thing is to write a press release that's relevant, accurate and tells a compelling story. If you follow these tips, we're confident that your media contacts will find your press release interesting enough to make them want to read more about you!
