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.

Ask: is this newsworthy? will someone find this really interesting?

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

Don’t make it sound like a product brochure, turn it into a “story”, or use a question from your site, a short interesting story about how you SOLVED A PROBLEM.

7 — About / Bio – this is about you and your business, how can you be contacted?

8 — Contact details – website name, email, address details, phone humber, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc.
