There are some clear rules when it comes to writing press releases — covering everything from news angles to structure.
Before you write and issue a press release, ask “Is there news value in this story? And, “Does it warrant a release?” Too often organisations feel obliged to write press releases using material that is not newsworthy. Fact: if the journalist does not consider it newsworthy, it won’t get coverage. Your aim is to get coverage and raise awareness among your target audiences.
