http://www.ereleases.com/insider/freebooksPH.html How to write a press release, also known as a news release, is a lot easier when you have dozens of free samples and templates right at your fingertips. No more guessing about the various types of formats, how to write a headline, whether you should use the 5 Ws in the first paragraph, how to include links in your press releases or various types of calls to action.
The Big Press Release Samples Book features examples for every occasion and industry.
Whether you need publicity for a new business venture, an existing small business or large company, or you need to know how to promote a new book, or you need PR for a nonprofit event, the press release is an invaluable tool that can make or break your efforts at gleaning some much-desired media attention from traditional journalists and bloggers, in addition to giving you online visibility.
At its best, a press release succinctly describes the who, what, where, when, why and how of your project in a manner that makes journalists say, "Wow! This is what we have been looking for." At its worst, a press release reads as little more than an unintelligible sales pitch filled with errors of every kind.
A press release should be to the point and contain only the significant details that would attract the attention of media professionals and consumers. Press releases are usually no more than two pages long and contain complete media contact information, a headline, dateline, the body of the press release and three hash marketers that state, in journalistic terms, "the end."
If it were easy to write a press release, there would be no need for press release writing services, press release writing articles, books and newsletters. Press release writing is definitely not easy. For this reason, Mickey Kennedy has pulled together tried and true examples of winning press releases covering various topics that will help to guide writers toward a successful media campaign and get them the free publicity they want in newspapers, magazines, on TV and radio, and online. These sample releases, perfect for public relations campaigns, have been crafted specifically for use in this book. All company, contact and service information is fictitious. Use these samples as starting blocks, templates or simply as sparks to generate ideas for your own press releases.
