Press Release Distribution - Getting Your News Out There Press release distribution is not the easiest thing to do effectively these days because with the accessibility of the internet you are competing with millions and millions of people to get your news to the top of the search engine rankings and on to a prominent footing on social networking sites. But if you can master the aspects needed to produce the best pr releases then you will be able to get your news out there. Pictures This seems like a really obvious thing to include within your press release, but the truth is there's only so much you can do yourself. Most popular and well-known pieces of news get around through the words of your readers. Readers are much more likely to help you get news of your press release out there if you can make your news attractive to read. A picture here and there can really help brighten up an otherwise featureless and barren block of text. Expanding your Territory One of the best ways to put your news about is to expand your press release distribution. This is pretty simple to do because the way it works is that the more places you post your news on, the higher the chance you have of people noticing and reading it. Finding multiple reputable websites to post your press release on will go a long way to getting your news out there. Social Media Social media is fast becoming the main vehicle of news for this generation because people are spending the large majority of their internet time on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook these days. One of the best ways to get your content out there is to post a link to it on one of these social networking sites and all of your followers/friends will be instantly notified of it. Don't wait for people to find you! Backlinks Backlinks are now one of the most important factors in press release distribution because of the way major search engines work. Backlinks in simple terms are links which are pointing directly to a website. In other words, if a website has lots of links to a specific page on other websites then a search engine will interpret the specific page as an important page; then it will be ranked accordingly. This is an example of masterful distribution. Try or Buy? The question of whether you should try all this yourself or have a specialised company to do is quite easy to answer. If you are not experienced in the art of press release distribution then don't take a chance and get a specialised company to do it instead. For a competitive price, most of these companies will provide all of the above and even a few extras if you are lucky. If your news is important then you need to put its needs into the hands of the professionals or risk messing something up and having all your hard work instantly undone because few people will even know of your press release. Online Press Releases to Promote Your Business In these uncertain economic times, it is pretty tough trying to run a successful business. Competition is stiff and good clients are at a premium. It is, therefore, becoming more and more important to get your business into the public eye so that you can get a step ahead of the competition. One of the simplest, most cost-effective methods of driving business your way is by means of an online press release. Getting media exposure through an online press release is so easy you'll wonder why you haven't done it before. It really is as simple as writing a short news announcement or article about your business. Any little piece of news will serve as a subject: a new project, an open day, an achievement of a staff member and the like are all suitable topics. With your topic decided, you write your story and introduce your business to the world. Of course, there are a few basics you need to get right to give yourself the best chance of success. The first thing is to make sure that your title is as specific to your business as possible and keep it short so that it doesn't get truncated by the search engines. You should also restrict your online press release to a maximum of about 500 words so that readers are not intimidated by its length. One important thing to remember is Search Engine Optimization (SEO). At the basic level, which is all you need to worry about, SEO is simply the inclusion of key words for the search engine to pick up on. For example, if your business is selling cars, key words like car sales, quality cars etc. should appear a few times naturally in your online press release. You will need to structure your article. You should start with a short introductory paragraph to let readers know what the article is about and to whet their appetite, and follow this with a few short paragraphs containing the body of the article. The final paragraph will be the one that tells the reader a little bit about your business and should contain contact details with an invitation to get in touch with you. It's as simple as that. All you that is left is your press release distribution. There are plenty of online press release distribution services to help you. They will edit your article and some will even write it for you if you prefer. Most have different packages to suit your particular needs and all will make sure that your online press release reaches the top online new sites like Yahoo! News and Google News and the major search engines such as Google and Bing. Once your online press release hits the Internet it should not be too long before new clients start ringing or emailing you to find out what your business has to offer. Online press releases will give your business a vital edge over your competition; you can't afford to ignore them.
