How to use the Internet wisely
Writing a press release today is not the same as it was several years ago. The Internet has changed how we treat these releases and the words we use. Public Relations firms and pr clients have been quickly learning how to make a press release meet the demand of the new technology.
Just as your web site needs to be optimized, it is just as important that each press release you distribute be optimized when submitting to the online news media. The use of keywords and how they are placed within the text body is critical. Using too many keywords, or phrases will destroy your objective.
The purpose to optimizing press releases and story’s that you are pitching is to help your web site gain higher ranking and position with the search engines. In addition to using the keywords, you need to include your company’s web address. That may seem logical, and most pr firms and clients do include that information. Want to make your release more worthy? Then don’t only list the URL of the web site, but have a link be directed to a specific page that discusses the product or service of that press release.
This will help reporters, or other media people collect more information quickly than searching for it on your home page.
When you combine the technology of today, using search engines, and traditional writing for press releases, you can increase your company’s visibility and traffic. It is best to work with a company that knows how to optimize a press release than trying to learn by trial and error.
