What the Press Release is About

Write a strong, attention getting headline. This is the most important component of the press release as this needs to "grab the attention" of the editor or reporter. Think of your press release as an ad for an interview. Stop the reader dead with a grabber headline - Think, “Give Your Mum a Gun This Mothers day!”

Correct press release format calls for the city and area of the company in question.

The Press Release Message

Write a sub-heading short paragraph here. Again this is an attention grabbing piece that will appear in bold to support your main heading. It needs to contain information that will "entice" the reader further. For example: HEADER - Give Your Mum a Gun This Mothers day! SUB HEADER - Interflora ask children all over the country to help combat gun violence by trading in their toy guns for flowers.

Write an introductory paragraph here. Your first paragraph of the release should be written in a clear and concise manner. Again, it needs to contain information that will “entice” the reader. Your story must be newsworthy and factual; don't make it a sales pitch or it will end up in the bin.

Now you need to further explain the subject and details of your release. This can actually contain several paragraphs. Your text should include pertinent information about your product, service or event. If writing about a product, make sure to include details on when the product is available, where it can be purchased and the cost. If you're writing about an event, be sure to include the date, location of the event and any other pertinent information. Answer the questions “who”, “what”, “when”, “where”, “why” and “how”. Note: You should include a quote from someone that is a credible source, include their title or position with the company, and why they are considered a credible source. Always include information on any awards they have won, articles they've published or interviews they have given.

Include a brief description of your company along with the products and services it provides. Sometimes people refer to this as a boilerplate. It is the type of description that your frequently use to briefly describe your company.
