Getting your creative press release writing juices back for 2018!

Because we recognize this struggle, our team came up with an article with a few ideas to help you get your mojo back and start the creative juices flowing again.

Press Release Service, 24-7PressRelease.com Advises of Increased Distribution and Reporting.

A leader in press release distribution services since 2004, 24-7PressRelease.com announces they have just recently increased their distribution of news and links within the reports they provide to their customers.

Aware that reporting and statistics are important to their customers, 24-7PressRelease.com made this move for those eager to see a few media outlets to which their press release was distributed and if it was posted. In the past, customers didn’t receive documentation as to where and when their press release went out, although they did receive reports as to where the stories ran once picked up.

“The links contained in the report do not reflect the industries the customer selected; rather, they are a sample of those of our online distribution partners that display all the news we send them. They news is displayed as ‘general news interest,’ ” advised Michael Iwasaki, managing partner of 24-7PressRelease.com. “When our customers select industries for their press release, we use them to tailor distribution to our magazine trade publication partners such as Media Desk for Journalists & Bloggers, accessed through our $89 – or higher – package), and to RSS & News Widget consumers, as well as all readers of the 24-7PressRelease.com website.”

Another recent addition is the ability to view from where, anywhere in the world, people are looking at the press release. This is another statistic that some customers appreciate.

“We had implemented the changes without making any formal announcements,” said Iwasaki. “It only took a few hours before we had received a phone call from one of our clients advising how happy and excited they were, especially considering that our prices did not increase. This is the type of feedback any company loves to hear. In the near future, 24-7PressRelease.com will be announcing further significant changes which will be welcomed by current and new customers,” he continued.

Using a press release service to disseminate regular meaningful updates or news about your company is an excellent way to keep your audience, customers and journalists up to date.  As we have mentioned in a past article, many businesses are now using press release services for their content marketing strategies.

With increased distribution of your news, more detailed reporting and access to statistics, 24-7PressRelease.com is a cost-effective way to help increase your visibility and keep media up to date.

Best Press Release Distribution Services in 2017 – The Results Were not What we Would Have Expected.

Best Press Release Distribution Services

Best Press Release Distribution Services

It is not rocket science that the Internet has changed the way we conduct business online and also the way in which customers conduct research for a businesses they may consider using, online.  Search engines, because of their improved accuracy over the years, are the first ‘go-to’ that many turn to in search of almost anything we want further information on.

24-7 Press Release Newswire, http://www.24-7pressrelease.com, was recently listed by AdvisoryHQ as their top selection for press release services for 2017.  Although we are extremely happy to receive this excellent award, we were slightly intrigued about how we stumbled across the results.

For this particular scenario, we were actually looking up ‘press release service’ in Google. From time to time, we like to check rankings and see how the competition is doing and if there are any significant algorithm updates.  We were quite interested to see that four of the top 10 results were what we call ‘list review companies’.  We consider a ‘list review company’, a site that does reviews on businesses in assorted industries and posts ‘the best of…’ or ‘the top 10…’ etc.

This result is not something that we would have anticipated.  We would have expected to see results for all the different businesses that are in the press release service industry.

Although we are grateful to accept being listed as their top choice for press release service companies, it was simply one of those findings that make you go ‘hmmm’.

We are not sure if this also holds true to other industries (I would image so, considering it is the same algorithm), but just something we found of interest. We would have personally expected to find the results we did under a more appropriate search term such as “Best press release service distribution companies”.

As far as why was 24-7PressRelease.com selected by Advisory HQ for their ranking?  Part of the acknowledgement was 24-7 Press Release.com’s comprehensive Knowledge Base that provides a plethora of articles ranging from press release tips and information, to content marketing and much more, which may be found here:  http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/kb_articles.php – A page that has received over 1,600 Facebook Likes!

A new Tribute Album for the Bee Gee’s by the Gibb Family Honoring Their Legacy; CubeSats (Small Satellites) Changing Possibilities in Space and More at 24-7PressRelease.com

Gibb family honors their legacy with Bee Gee's tribute album - Press Release.A group of brothers (Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb) that came together back in 1958 and took the stage by storm – were talking about the Bee Gees.  The amazing trio had decades of success that many of us can remember back to with extraordinary accomplishments in the late 60’s into the 70’s.

The trio, according to an article at WikiPedia were active between years 1958 – 2003, then again from 2009 – 2012 with labels including Warner Bros., Capitol and Polydor to name a few.

The group was known for writing all their own music, something that is not as popular in this day and age.  They may also be credited with becoming one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time with over 220 million records sold worldwide. Back in 1997 the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Through a press release distributed at 24-7PressRelease.com, the next generation of Gibbs has made an announcement of a project honoring their music with a new interpretations of classic songs headed up by Maurice’s daughter Samantha.  The full press release details may be found through our main site 24-7PressRelease.com

Switching subjects over to space, NASA is almost like a household name or brand.  Not quite in every household, but there are not many whom are not familiar with the name.

Are you familiar with what a CubeSat is? If you are a follower of space exploration and NASA, you may take an interest in these small devices that are helping to provide more insight into scientific investigations and technology.  Some of these CubeSats measure as tiny as four inches on each side and are now being adopted by many organizations outside of NASA for exploration of low-earth orbit and the effects of microgravity.

Recent News at NASA and the Results of one Year in Space From Press Release Service 24-7PressRelease.com

Many of us have been familiar with NASA since our early childhood memories – pretty much since Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon.  News always came out in the evening newspapers and occasionally, we might catch a clip of space related news from afar. At that time, if it was outside the city limits, it was far away.

Times have changed and with it, technology to keep us up to date of every going on that we have an interest in.

Through press release service 24-7PressRelease.com, NASA has done a phenomenal job of keeping the media and public up to date with their latest space science press release news.

In particular, a recently submitted press release, titled ‘How Stressful Will a Trip to Mars be on the Human Body? We Now Have a Peek Into What the NASA Twins Study Will Reveal’ peaked the curiosity of many of our visitors.

The press release was a preliminary research study of NASA Twins whereby one twin made the International Space Station his home for a period of one year while the other remained on earth.

The researchers attained biological samples that were taken from each of the twins before, during and after the mission and comparing the results to find out how the body would be affected by long term space visits.

Want to find out more about some of the preliminary results? Be sure to check out the full press release here.

A second press release submitted to 24-7PressRelease.com again from NASA discusses some of the space station research highlights of the one year journey.  A few of the highlights include the first ever sequencing of DNA in space a number of investigations across multiple science related subjects.  Find out more about this project titled “2016 Space Station Research Highlights” here.

When did you Last Distribute a Press Release; and did you Share Your Information on Social Media? Quick tip…

Keeping your content interesting.Your social media can assist you with your content marketing strategy and visibility if you tie all the pieces together properly. Yes, this includes your actual press release too.  This is a strategy we have discussed previously which can be found in our Knowledge Base here .  You should be posting to your social media the day your press release is distributed from the 24-7 Press Release Newswire.

If the information you are sending out is useful and considered valuable to your audience, you may notice an increase in your followers.

Unfortunately, as of recent months (from the end of 2015), we have started to notice a trend in ‘less than satisfactory’ social media posts, which could potentially means less followers.

Allow me explain. When people visit or stumble across your Facebook page, if you have information that is of value to them, they will keep coming back. They may follow you.  They may share your information (part of how posts go viral).  These types of social posts may include press releases announcing a new product, or an upgrade, tips and techniques to help existing customers; or keeping them up to date on an industry, such as finance.  We talked a little about this in our article titled “When Disseminating a Press Release, Quoting an industry Expert Who Can Vouch for You Can Further Validate Your Brand and Earn Trust in Your Marketplace”.

Where we have started to see things go south in the quality of posts is with the “Look at us!” style postings.  You are probably familiar with these.  They are the Facebook posts displaying images of office party socialization’s, birthdays, Friday afternoon hangouts with the selfies.  Not to say the occasional post like this wouldn’t be appreciated particularly if it is a ‘personal Facebook page’, however for a business page, it is not that interesting for your customers.Office party

You need to put yourself in the seat of your customer.  When you visit a company’s social media page, would you rather see updates to a product you have purchased and how that product may be used; or ‘the Friday afternoon office hangout selfie’?

Here is another way to think of it.  Let’s think big Corporation.  How often do you see the party type pics on an Apple Facebook page? I would say very rarely.

The point we want to make is ensure you incorporate your press release within your social media and content marketing strategy. When you distribute your news with 24-7 Press Release Newswire we provide you with a link to your news story. Use this link to further your reach and share on your social media; particularly if this press release will be useful to your existing or potential customer base. As far as frequency goes, a good rule of thumb is three to four times a month.  With this being said, we only recommend disseminating news when you have a story to tell that will be of interest to your audience.  Don’t force something that isn’t natural.

Keeping these ideas in mind will be a sure way to help with your overall content marketing strategy and put you above those that are not practicing these strategies or not posting at all.

Press Release Distribution During the Holidays & Becoming an Editor’s Best Friend…

gas pedalJust when you thought it might be time to put the brakes on for your marketing efforts over the holidays, you may actually want to think about stepping on the accelerator.

News distribution company, 24-7 Press Release Newswire (http://www.24-7pressrelease.com), have just published an article on our main site discussing the benefits of distributing a press release during the holidays. This article also includes a couple of key dates you will want to avoid.

Read about it here: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/article/16/247-press-release-newswire-press-release-distribution-during-the-holidays-why-this-is-a-prime-time-for-distributing-a-press-release-plus-some-dos-and-donts

So, how well do you really know journalists in your industry or region? Not that well? You may want to consider getting to know them. On top of that, when you do send them your press release, you will want to make sure that you follow these five factors that will help make your press release newsworthy. Read about them here: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/article/14/becoming-an-editors-best-friend-writing-something-newsworthy

During the holiday, just because people are not physically present in their chair in an office, does not mean that they are not reading news and have access from home. When everyone else is letting off the gas, press the accelerator and be seen!

24-7 Press Release Newswire asks: “Do you know the ideal time for press release distribution? If you don’t, you might be losing readers!”

Marketing and your brand

Marketing and your brand

As a member of the press release distribution industry for more than 10 years, 24-7 Press Release Newswire has seen almost everything and recognizes that timing is a significant factor when you distribute your press release.

We have seen all the presentations, articles and info-graphics discussing what is the ideal time to post to certain social media. For example, an article over at slideshare.net (http://www.slideshare.net/TrackMaven/when-to-postslidesharepdf), says that the time when most brands tweet is during the work week, with a peak on Thursdays. Over the weekend, there is a significant drop. The most popular hours during the week are 9am – 6pm, with the peak hour being 12pm – 1pm. This seems contradictory to the next statistic that shows tweets receive the most re-tweets on Sundays.

Here’s an interesting statistic: 87 percent of the time, brands publish to their blog during the week, with the peak time being Tuesday and Wednesday. This coincides with press release distribution.

So why are Tuesdays and Wednesdays a peak time for press release distribution? We have found that the work week can be psychological. It would appear that Mondays are the busiest day. Individuals that may have taken a long weekend (by taking the Friday off) are catching up. Because most people are catching up on a Monday, they may tend to push “online news readership” off until they have caught up with all their work. Meetings also tend to take place on a Monday, as they may lay groundwork for the rest of the week. Tuesday is typically the day that the majority of people have caught up with their work and can afford some time to “browse around.” For the most part, this also is true for Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Friday is a different day all together. It is one that most people tend to take off when they are looking to extend their weekend and it is also a time where many tend to be a little more “social” and less focused at the office. Although some people may choose Monday as the day to extend their weekend, in our experience, it is far more common to choose Friday for that purpose. This is why Friday also is not an ideal time for press distribution. Because the weekend is soon upon people, many tend to mentally check out around noon on Friday and play catch up on Monday morning.

This does not happen in every office and every industry, but this is what we have found through our experience over the years and as we talk with our many clients. So the next time you schedule your press release distribution time, you may want to consider scheduling it for Tuesday, Wednesday or perhaps Thursday, unless your press release is extremely time sensitive. As a rule of thumb, weekends also should be avoided.
