What problem do you solve? 

How to build a strategic PR campaign using press releases and building one that’s effective and will succeed.

Show Notes:

  • Mickie started with PR releases in the telecommunications world and slowly built his database.
  • A press release is written in third person. It is great to include a company quote. You provide data and facts and then the hook of what you are offering. You hope that it turns into original content.
  • When a journalist covers your company in an article, it makes you an expert in that field.
  • Press releases can distinguish your company in the marketplace.
  • When putting a press release together, make sure to include all the elements of a good story.
  • Being authentic can be helpful.
  • Including surveys or studies can be useful.
  • You need to know how you are different from others in your industry.
