Are Your Press Releases Creating a Buzz?

Posted on April 19, 2013 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Nothing will get you more lovely free publicity more than a well written and syndicated press release. A well-targeted release can showcase your business to your chosen target market and present you as the expert in their field.

But what should be in the perfect press release? Who should you send it to and how can you make it interesting enough to get it published?

Press releases need to be relevant and interesting. They need to capture not only the attention of the reader but the editor if you are looking for inclusion in a printed publication. How is what you have to say relevant to what’s going on in the news today. What angle or spin can you put on your story to make it current and ‘of the moment’?

If you’re at a loss as to where to start, relax, we can do it all for you.

At My Virtual Assistant, we provide a Press Release Creation and Submission service that includes a press release created to promote your business and submitted to online press release web sites.
