How Often Should You Submit Your Press Release? We receive this question many times and now have decided to finally include this bit of information within our Press Release Writing Tips section.

How often should you submit your press release? Rule of thumb is once to twice a month if you have news to tell. This being said, if you do not have any news worth mentioning, then once a month is a good rule of thumb again IF you have news to write about. If you do not have anything to write about, wait until you do. Many Companies go through changes. Management changes, product changes, service changes or other changes. To not have something to write about, in most companies would be rare. Do you have a hot new service you are now providing? Do you have a great new service you plan to offer coming up inrepparttar future that you would like to informrepparttar 147828 public of? Do you have some new widget that you are importing that no one else has? Are you hiring some new executive from a Fortune 500 Company that will add an asset to your Company? These are just a few ideas to keep in mind.

As long as you have a good story to tell that will be interesting torepparttar 147829 general public and of course editors and journalists, a press release may also be viewed, indirectly, as a way of brand marketing. People will begin to recognize your Company inrepparttar 147830 news. This being said, we do stress that you should have a story to tell. Do not floodrepparttar 147831 media or public with garbage in an attempt to spread your name. All to often we come across those who send out weekly press releases with no story to tell.

Images are worth a thousand words. This is why magazines are so popular. They have images, they tell a story. Try to imagine your local newspaper with no image onrepparttar 147834 front page, but rather straight text. Try to imagine People magazine with no images of your favorite celebrities. Need we say more?

If you are close to an individual, a verbal ok may be all that is required but we always recommend written permission.
