In this quick video I want to explain a few quick tips about Press Releases. On the screen you can see my website BuildAWebsiteTonight.com/press-release-template.html you can see that I have different information highlighted by the arrows. These are tips for what you need.
1 — Firstly “Date/Timing” – the date of the Press Release.
2 — Release Date – this can be immediate release or a date in the future.
3 — Title — put a catchy title with KEYWORDS at the start.
4 — Location – if your Press Release is for a launch in another city, make sure to write that.
5 — Paragraph #1 (the Intro) – this is extremely important, you want to grab people’s attention.

6 — 5 W’s – Who, What, Where, Why, When – I like to write one sentence about each of the 5 W’s.
