How To Get The Media To Write About Your Business

1 year ago 206


The press release is the first thing any journalist will see about your business, so it's important to get it right. Press releases are one of the most effective ways to attract new readers and followers. In fact, many journalists read business press release before deciding what stories they want to cover or write about in the first place!

Study Your Audience

The first step to getting media coverage is to study your audience. This can be done in a variety of ways, but the best way is by looking at how they talk about themselves on social media and other sites.

When you’re trying to get coverage for your business, think about what kind of people are going to read or listen to what you have to say: their age and gender; their education level; what are their interests. Do they want news or lifestyle stories? What do they like reading most often? How can we make our press release relevant for this audience so that it will stand out from all the other articles out there?

Hint At Newsworthy Topics

  • Hint at a newsworthy topic.

You're going to want to mention something that's happening in your industry, or at least one of the big trends. If you can't think of one, just make up a story about it and see how reporters react!

  • Give an example of something recent that fits into this category.

For example, if you're selling cars (and we all hope it's not true), mention how Uber recently announced they were buying out Lyft for $12 billion dollars—that way they'll be able to compete with Tesla Motors' electric vehicle line-up while still retaining some level of exclusivity over their competitors' products (and potentially becoming even more profitable).

Ask For The Business

The key to getting the media coverage you want is to get people talking about your business. The way to do that is by asking them in public, whether it's at an event or through social media.

If you're interested in having someone write about your business, ask them directly! Don't use any of these words:

  • apply

  • send

  • write

Develop Strong Headlines And Teasers

Your headline is the first impression you make on your reader. It's what they see when they open their press release for business, and it can make them decide whether or not they want to read more of your article.

Headlines should be short, catchy and relevant to the story. People don't like reading long articles when there are so many other options available online—so keep things concise! You don't have time for meandering prose here; get straight into why people should care about what you're writing about in just a few words or less (if possible).

If possible, try using some sort of hook or question at the beginning of your headline that leads into what comes next: "What happens when..." or "How did this happen?" This will help draw readers in by showing them how much value there is in reading further--and hopefully encourage them enough so that they'll click through without even reading all but one sentence before deciding whether or not continue onto another page/article within this one website/website network etcetera

Address The Question "Who Cares?" In Your Opening Paragraph

  • Who is your audience?

  • What problem are you solving?

  • How does your story help them?

In Your Body Copy, Answer The Questions Who, What, When, Where, Why, And How It Affects Your Reader's Life

  • Who is the audience?

  • What is your business?

  • When did it start, and why do people care about it?

  • Where is it located and how does that affect people's lives (e.g., if you're in a rural area or capital city)?

Wrap Up With A Strong CTA - Call-To-Action

The closing paragraph is the last chance to make a strong call-to-action. Make it clear what you want the reader to do and make it easy for them to do it.

  • If they have visited your site, invite them back by asking them if they would like an email subscription or weekly content delivery from you.

  • If they haven't visited yet but are interested in learning more about what you offer, ask if there's anything specific about your business that interests them (for example: “Are there any particular areas of interest that we could cover today?”)

  • If they haven't read anything yet this week and are looking for something new online right now, offer some tips on how best to find good content online (for example: “What sites should I be checking out?”).

You can create a good press release by following some basic rules.

To create a good business press releases, you have to follow some basic rules. In particular:

  • Write for your audience. If you're writing about the latest in social media marketing, then make sure your writing is accessible and relevant for your target readership. You can't expect people who don't know what Twitter is or how it works to understand what you're trying to say if it's not written in plain English. So make sure that everything in the body of the press release (the copy) is easy-to-digest and digestible by non-techies as well as techies (and anyone else).

  • Use a good headline and teaser/pitch line that entices readers into reading further so they'll be interested enough in what's being said that they'll click through on their own accord before seeing whether or not this article will actually be worth reading—and hopefully convince them of its value! Remember: headlines are all about grabbing attention; teasers contain information but aren't meant solely for sale; pitches take advantage of an opportunity but don't promise much more than what's already there


Remember, press releases are not a one-way street. You need to be willing to send them out and listen for what comes back. It's a two-way relationship. If you aren't willing to give your audience the time of day—or even just acknowledge their existence—they won't be willing to pay attention either!
