This video will explain about the kitplus pressroom. We accept press releases from marketing and public relations companies, manufacturers, dealers and anyone with a news in our industry. It is free of charge and could be exported on a Wednesday evening to be added to the KitPlus TV news show which airs each Monday.
Firstly you need to be registered on the site, there is a help video about that if you’re not sure where to go. Once you’re into MY KITPLUS then look for the section called INDUSTRY NEWS and press ADD SOME NEWS.
KitPlus news is one of the most successfully searched google pages of all and we have worked hard to optimise our site with to enable search engines to find the right information. There are however a few rules we need you to follow. In the top field TITLE please do not enter anything other than alphabetical characters fi you have to add & then please delete it and rewrite as AND – please no ? marks, slashes hyphens are allowed. If you do add them then it is possible the news will not be approved.
The second field is a short 50-150 human interpretation of the news, if you were to be asked in an elevator what the news was about what would you summarise it to? If you’re news is chosen for the KitPlus TV News Round UP Show then this will help us make your news stand out – if we don’t understand it then we’re not going to struggle to read it out.
Full press release can be pasted in the next box. Active links are removed unless you have a PR package with us and with all due respect we are not interested if the company is listed on the NASDAQ, or whatever other financial index – we just want to know the latest news, we also ask you to not add a date at the front of the release as our system will do this for you. And just so you know most information below the final few words of the release will be deleted such as any about us text you might have tacked on.
Tags are crucial and please add as many as possible, they not only help search engines but also on the kitplus website your news will be shown when matching content is viewed so for example when someone views a JVC camera and you have JVC as a tag then your news will be shown.
If your news is relevant to a specific trade show then we may have it listed in the pull down box, take a look and select it if you can as this means the news will also appear on the event pages.
It’s a large image box but you can only add one image – please do add an image as without it then its pretty dull, and of course anyone searching images in a search engines will find you!
Twitter – we’ve all got accounts so please add it and we will tweet your news and tag you so you can thank us and retweet it, without a twitter tag then when it goes live it, well just goes lives and relies of people finding it.
If you have a video that is relevant to your news then add the link here. Please go to the video and copy the shortest URL you can and paste it in.
We’ve also got the option to delay the news going live, however this is not 100% guaranteed and we may miss this when approving the news so if you have a strict embargo then please do not add your news until it is able to be seen
Finally please pick a section of the industry who you think this news will appeal to. This helps us categorise it. Then just click preview and save where you’ll then see a preview.
Saving the preview will alert the KitPlus news team to check the news over and give it approval, this can take up to 3 days during busy times, priority is given to those with PR packages so please be patient and we’ll make it live as soon as we can.
