|How do You Proceed?
You must have heard about free press release distribution websites. Try searching the Internet and you will see such websites. Perhaps you have not tried their services before, since you always consider that, for it to be effective, it must cost something. And the fact that it is free, gives you doubts.
But like anything else, if done right, it will also affect your business in good ways you did not know it could.
First, you must study the system and find out how it works. Some of these free press release distribution sites have partner websites that post your releases as well giving you that extra exposure. You might want to try this out first, since statistically, the chances of your release becoming an actual news material is higher here.
Read the Free Press Release Site’s Policies
Take time to study the website’s rules in submitting your releases. If you are not good with this stuff, get someone in your company who understands these things. Your public relations person will do well here. But regardless who will do it, you should read the rules and follow them.
Follow the site’s standard release format, their submission guidelines and their requirements for your press release article.
Preferably, you need someone who has tried writing releases before if you have none, a person with good writing skill will suffice. As long as you stick to your news material and you made it direct to the point & complete: this will serve its purpose.
Submitting to Different Sites
Take time to submit to different sites offering this free service. The likelihood that your article will be picked up by journalists will increase. Different sites will have different visitors. You will never know where your luck is waiting for you. So make the effort, and give the other sites a shot.
Where to Go to make News out of Your Releases
While you want to get more exposure with these various websites, watch out for some that seem to have no control over those who submit news releases on their sites. You do not want to waste your time there, as there might be no decent journalist who will be looking at that site.
It would be better if you concentrate on sites that have quality releases in them. By this, you will know there will be journalists constantly checking for newsworthy articles.
You will also know whether the site is worthy for your time by checking who the people behind them are, how long they are in the business and how they are currently performing in terms of the free service they provide.
Choose the free press release distribution website wisely. While you are saving money with their free service, check also if you are saving your time & effort in submitting to them. Some sites are for real giving you that free quality service. Be aware about this; and do not let your press releases go to waste.
