Steps to Crafting a Winning Press Releases Strategy for Your Business

Crafting a winning press release strategy for your business involves several key steps that can help you effectively communicate your message to your target audience and generate positive media coverage.

Having a strong press releases strategy can help you get the attention of journalists and drive traffic to your website. These strategies include identifying your goals, audience, market research, editorial calendar, tone and content creation.

Establish Your Goals: Identify what you want to accomplish with your press release strategy and how you will measure success.

Define your goals: What do you want to accomplish with this press release strategy? How will you measure success, and what kind of evidence do you need to demonstrate that it was a success?

Identify the problem: What problem are you trying to solve for your target audience? Is there an existing need for what you’re providing (e.g., “We have developed a new product which can solve their biggest problems”), or does someone else already provide this solution (e.g., “Our company has been providing effective solutions for these issues since 1847”). If neither of these apply, then there must be some other reason why people might be interested in reading about how well suited their needs are likely going unmet by other providers in this industry space (e.g., “We’re currently working on developing an innovative new technology platform which will help reduce costs while increasing efficiency across all departments within companies around the world”).

Identify Your Audience: Know who you are trying to reach and where they get their news.

To craft a winning press release strategy, you need to know who your target audience is. That’s where the first step comes in: identifying where your potential customers get their pr newswire and what they want to hear about.

  • Who Is Your Audience?

Who are you trying to reach? What kind of news release do they want? How are they currently getting information about your business or industry? The answers will help guide the rest of this process as well as help determine what kind of content should go into each piece (i.e., if it’s something that might have been published elsewhere).

Research Your Market: Understand the competitive landscape and how you fit in.

  • Research Your Market: Understand the competitive landscape and how you fit in.
  • Know Your Audience: What do they want? How can you best reach them?
  • Know Your Product: Is it relevant to their needs, interests and budget constraints? What is its uniqueness compared with similar products on the market right now?
  • Know Your Target Audience: Who are they, where do they hang out online (and offline), what is their age range and gender breakdown, etc.?

Create an Editorial Calendar: Develop a plan for when and how often to release content.

As with any marketing strategy, it’s important to create an editorial calendar. This allows you to set a deadline for when and how often you release content. The goal is not just to get the press release out there but also to make sure that it’s effective in reaching your audience and landing on their radar. You’ll want to do this by:

  • Creating a schedule for when and where your submission should go live (or be sent), which will include deadlines for each stage of the process, such as submitting stories or editing them;
  • Establishing who exactly needs access (e-mail addresses only) if possible;
  • Creating lists of stories that need coverage before launching into new ones; If there are any topics about which there isn’t much interest among journalists, consider avoiding them entirely until later down the line when things have been covered elsewhere more recently—this will also help prevent wasting valuable time chasing dead ends while still ensuring that coverage happens at all!

Develop a Consistent Tone: Decide how you want to sound and the message you want to communicate.

You should have a consistent tone that you use to communicate the message. This is important because it will help your readers know they’re getting the same thing from your press release every time they read one of yours. If you want people to take action, then it needs to be clear what kind of action and how far along in their journey someone should go before taking action themselves.

The tone should be friendly and professional—but not too formal or stiff!

Write Quality Content: Craft compelling and useful stories that are newsworthy and interesting to your target audience.

  • Write a clear and engaging headline.
  • Use relevant keywords in your content.
  • Create an introduction that is interesting, compelling and useful to your target audience (this is where you will hook them).
  • Use a clear and concise conclusion that summarizes what was said in the body of the press release, but also leaves room for additional research on their part if they want more information about what you wrote about.
  • The body should be short enough so as not to bore readers or distract them from reading further into your press release before turning away altogether! You want them engaged throughout each sentence without losing interest halfway through due to boredom or confusion over whether something has been stated correctly before moving onto what comes next – so write carefully here!

Get Creative: Try new approaches to garner attention and stand out in the crowd.

Once you’ve got your press release submissions written, it’s time to get creative. Do something unexpected and unique with the content of your press release so that people will want to read more about what you have to say.

  • Humor: When it comes to humor, don’t be afraid! If you have a point or message that needs communicating, but also want people responding emotionally or laughing out loud (or even both!), then use humor as an opportunity for connection—and build trust with potential customers by showing them how much fun working with you would be!
  • Catchy Headline: A good headline makes all the difference in terms of attracting attention from media outlets and readers alike; if someone has just clicked on this article because they saw “press release” in its title, then having something catchy like “How To Make Money Selling Patents Online” doesn’t really help matters here at all

Leverage Multimedia: Incorporate visuals and audio to further engage readers and viewers.

The best way to create an engaging experience for your audience is by including multimedia in your press release. Multimedia can include images, audio, video news release and a combination of all three. The key here is variety—you want to use media that will appeal to different audiences based on their interests and needs.

For example, if you’re releasing a product launch announcement about a new line of glasses from yours company then you would want to use imagery that shows people how good they look in their new frames (elegant selfies). If instead this release were about something more serious like an invitation for employees back from vacation then perhaps instead of images showing off designer sunglasses we’d see pictures showing off flowers or even photos with happy families celebrating big milestones together at home (which might also be seen as relevant because they show how happy everyone looks after being away).

Make It Shareable: Include social share buttons to make it easier for people to spread the word.

  • Make it shareable: Include social share buttons to make it easier for people to spread the word.
  • Link to your website, blog and email newsletter. If you have a press release landing page where people can sign up for pr news updates, add that too!

Build Relationships: Connect with journalists and influencers in your industry to extend your reach.

Connect with journalists and influencers in your industry to extend your reach.

  • Get their attention by sharing a post from an influential writer or blogger that connects with the topic of your press release. For example, if you’re releasing news about an upcoming conference call, consider sharing a post from someone who attended the conference—even if it’s just one sentence of praise for what was discussed there. This can help build trust and familiarity between yourself and potential readers that may be interested in reading more from you later on down the line (and will hopefully lead them back here!).

Monitor Results: Track metrics to measure the success of your efforts and adjust accordingly.

  • Monitor Results: Track metrics to measure the success of your efforts and adjust accordingly.
  • Listen to feedback from clients, customers and other stakeholders.
  • Adapt based on what you hear from them and how they feel about their experience with you or your company.

Test Different Platforms: Explore various channels to distribute your press releases and see which works best.

You’re likely to test several platforms before you find the one that works best. Try different channels like email and social media, as well as traditional press release distribution methods like newspaper or magazine publication.

Once you have determined which platform to use, measure its effectiveness by tracking how many times your press release was shared on social media, how many people opened and read it (and whether they clicked through to read more), etc. This information can help inform future strategies for distributing your message through that channel in the future—and lead directly into step five!

Analyze Your Competition: See what they are doing and find ways to differentiate yourself.

  • Use a competitive analysis tool to see what your competitors are doing and find ways to differentiate yourself.
  • Use the information you gather from this exercise to help you craft your press release strategy, which we’ll discuss in detail later in this article.

Utilize Social Media: Utilize social media channels to promote and amplify your press releases.

Utilizing social media channels to promote the release of your press release is a great way to get the word out about your company and its products or services. You can use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to share it with friends, family and colleagues who might be interested in learning more about what you’re up to.

You could also use social media as an opportunity for feedback from customers who have already purchased from you—or even people who are not currently customers but may become so in the future!

For example: if someone sees that I’m promoting my latest product on Twitter then they may want me to send them one (or more) copies of it when they reach out via email later on down the road.”

Follow Up: Follow up with journalists and readers to ensure your message is getting through.

The most important part of this process is to follow up. You’ll want to be patient, persistent and polite at all times when following up with journalists and readers. Be respectful of their time – don’t call them too often or send out emails that are more than necessary. Also be respectful of their space – if you don’t have an email address for someone who may be busy or on vacation, then simply drop them an email saying “Thank you for taking the time out of your day! I hope this helps in some way.”

Lastly, it’s important not only for yourself but also for those around what type of person you present yourself as being when communicating with others through social media sites like LinkedIn (or whatever platform they prefer). As mentioned earlier: “Your reputation precedes itself.”


As you can see, there are plenty of steps to crafting a winning press release strategy for your business. It’s not easy but it’s worth the time investment. If you follow the steps above (and keep track of everything), then in no time at all you’ll be on your way to becoming an expert in this field.
