Got news? Release it!

26/06/2018

Media releases are a great way to shout about your business or product and can make for fantastic organic advertising.

They are typically a snapshot or connection to a service or product that hold news value. Perhaps you’ve launched a small community initiative aimed at helping children in some capacity, or maybe your product is the first of its kind to be launched in your area – these are the kinds of things that can warrant media attention.

It's easy for news organisations to read between the lines, so your media release needs to have a hook or a point of difference in order for it to get picked up by a journalist. It's important the content of media releases is crafted so that it doesn't come across as blatant advertising, but frames your brand through a certain lens.

This could include tapping into a current political climate, connection with social issues, or business and community work.

While their pick up is never guaranteed, having a solid news value that is targeted to the publication you're sending the media release to is more likely to get their attention, rather than a generic bit of information about your product/service.

It's important the content of media releases are crafted in a way that doesn't come across as blatant advertising, but frames your brand in a certain way.
