Press releases and Article Differences
- Press releases are written in the 3rd person. Articles are written in the 1st person (My, Our)
- Press releases focus on news and are written to announce. Articles focus on providing Opinions or Instructions.
How to write a press release- It should be written in 3rd person. Use "quotes" to present any 1st person statements.
- Should announce your product, service, information, or company in a news worthy manner.
- Introduction - first paragraph provides basic answers to the questions of who, what, when, where, and why.
- Body - further explanation, statistics, background, or other details relevant to your news.
- Keep your press release to 500 or less characters. Improves readability.
- Include a summary of your company/product at the bottom. The 'About' section
- Add contact details
The main important parts to a press release are:
1. Headline. Headline should be short, clear, and compelling. Headlines that are too long will be truncated by Google and other SE's. Which will result in a sloppy appearance and increased click through!
2. Subtitle. The subtitle (sometimes referred to as Meta Description) should include and then expand on the elements contained in the headline.
3. Introduction paragraph. Keep in mind, as quickly as you've managed to get people's attention with your Headline/Subtitle, this is where you can just as quickly lose it!
4. Contact details: A press release should at least have some form of contact details at the bottom
Remember unique content is the key!
