I can remember sending all of the local newspapers information about my business
in hopes they would write an article about my services. Finally, it happened!
I received calls from 2 newspapers who wanted to write an article about my

My articles were printed and the news was out.
Oh but wait! My phone wasn’t ringing off the hook. I kept wondering what

telling you what happen to me.

personnel about your latest breaking news. If your Press Release is
picked up by the a news editor or producer it could reach millions. You
can either write your own or have someone else write one for you. I wrote my

what I had to offer. I have gotten customers as well as sold books from writing
my press releases.
Be careful writing your own Press Release. If
you are not a good writer a poorly written press release can also hurt your
business. Press Releases show up in the search engines. There are
quite a few things that can be done with a press release. Anytime you do
anything with your business you should have a press release written and
distributed online and to the media. For example, if you launch a new product,
service, book or event. You will need to have a press release written to
My latest press release has gotten 400 views in 2 days. A press release
is a great way to allow people to find out about your business.
Please, share your thoughts about press releases?
