In addition to examining how each of these challenges can be overcome, the article illustrates three key ways in which PR professionals can take advantage of the humble news release to deliver a brand's message to a large audience.
- Write with your targeted audience in mind
Ensure your release contains the language and style that your targeted audience uses on a daily basis. This allows a media outlet to take information directly from your release without having to edit and re-write your message, to fit their style of writing.
- Find news angles in your owned media
Develop compelling pieces of branded content; highlight statistics, expert opinions and quotes to spark news coverage. The majority of organizations will find they have a mountain of interesting content already available within the company and it is just a matter of mining this information to find news angles.
