Patience is the Key to Press Release Submissions

It takes a lot to run a business, including strategizing, creativity and patience. Yet so many businesses think they can just sit down for five minutes locate a press release template fill in some standard information and go on. The problem with that type of thinking is hundreds of other companies are already using this strategy and it is not working for them either. However, that is their problem! Leave the bad press releases for your competition and you can help ensure that your press releases will get you the attention you deserve.

Press releases can be submitted to more than newspapers and magazines, take a little time to research local places where your press release is likely to get attention. Beyond major daily newspapers in your area, business specific publications and local publications designed specifically for a particular interest should be considered. Web sites that cater to your industry are also great places to send press releases, as are blogs and online magazines and webzines.

Save time when submitting press releases by creating a list of publications that you are interested in sending your press releases too. Adding in the contact information of the editor, and creating on a spreadsheet can help you keep organized. This can also be helpful if you decide to outsource the writing of your business press releases to a local writer who specializes in creating press releases.

Patience is the key to getting attention with your press releases. Though the first few press releases may get a little attention, longevity and consistency will help a publication become more familiar with what your company offers and as your brand becomes noticeable, a press release is more likely to get used.
