Top Press Release Writing related questions

What should a good press release include?

A press release should have a headline, location, press contact information (who the media should contact in your company), a summary in bullet points, followed by the body copy. This body copy should tell the reader what the press release is all about, followed by details. It’s also good to include a quote from someone in your team. The press release should end with a boilerplate or “About Us” paragraph that describes your company. 

How do I write a press release?

Before you start writing a press release, determine if you have something your audience would want to read about. This could be an announcement, product launch, event, partnership or merger, new research, new team members, or to manage a crisis. Next, create your press release. Have a headline, press contact info, necessary details, a relevant quote, and your company’s boilerplate information. If you don’t have time to prepare an exciting press release, you can always hire a press release writer to help you out with your business needs.

Where can I find press release writers near me?

Need to create a press release and want to have a sit-down meeting with your writer? You can find an available press release in minutes through our platform! Unlike a general press release creation task post, you’ll need to specify your location. This lets potential Taskers know that you are limiting the search to those who can meet with you in person instead of those who can submit output online. 

What should I ask a press release writer?

Some questions you can ask your press release writer include:

  • Tell me about your writing experience with press releases.
  • Are you familiar with my industry or company?
  • Can you also offer other services, like press release distribution or technical writing?
  • How many rounds of revision are included in the quote?
  • How long does it take you to write one draft?

When should I push a press release?

You should create a press release when you have something newsworthy - if you are a large organisation, the media will want to break the news, so it’s good to give them a hand. Whether you want to announce a merger, launch a product, or manage your reputation during a crisis, having a press release can help. Want to get nice photos during your product launch or event? You can use Airtasker to find a highly-rated photographer near you.

How long does it take to write a press release?

This would depend on the Tasker as well as your collaboration. Sometimes, it may take days to draft and revise a single press release. Even if a press release usually only runs for 300-400 words or 3-4 paragraphs, it takes time to read through the material you provide (especially for technical products). Pick out the essential details, pick a quote from a lengthy interview, and craft a headline to pique the reader’s interest. 

What do press release writing services include?

Press release writing services usually consist of you (the company representative) briefing the Tasker on what they will write about. Then, the press release writer drafts the material. Depending on what you and the Tasker agreed upon, you can have the press release revised a certain number of times before distributing it.

Once you’re happy with the material, you can send it out to your desired media channels! The following steps are what you might expect when you book a press release writer through Airtasker:

Briefing and sending writing materials

The process starts when you tell your press release writer what you want the material to cover. Since a task post may not be enough to convey the details of your exciting new product, the background of your company’s merger, or the importance of your event, you may want to chat with the Tasker in person or via video call. 

Don’t worry about overloading the writer with information - a good press release writer will be able to sift through all the details, use the most relevant ones, and make sure that the press release achieves its objective: inform your audience!  

Writing the body copy and summary

Writers usually start by writing the body copy or 3-4 main paragraphs of the text. These will follow an inverted triangle structure. 

First, the “lead” should cover the essential information and answer who, what, when, where, why, and how. Next, the “body” covers important details such as the issue, story, quotes, insights, or a backgrounder. The last paragraph or “tail” consists of extra content - things that are nice to know, but that won’t be missed if the audience doesn’t read all the way through. 

The writer may also add a bullet-point summary at the start of the material so that it’s easier for members of the press to understand the press release at a glance.

Crafting a good headline

A good headline should grab people’s attention while still adhering to style guidelines. Ideally, it should contain keywords that will make it easy for people to understand what the press release talks about. Including relevant keywords can also mean a higher ranking on search engines like Google. 

Adding the boilerplate and press contact info

Boilerplate information is essentially your company’s brief “About Us” paragraph and should be standard across your materials (not just your press releases). Press contact information is the person the media should look for if they want to do further coverage on your story. Make sure to give these important bits of information to the Tasker before they start writing. 

Press release writing isn’t the only thing Airtasker can help you with. If you’re looking for administrative assistants near you or need a translator to help you with your app or website, post a task on our platform! A nearby and available Tasker would be more than happy to assist you.

We need a Press Release written and distributed that has the WOW Factor. Our Consumer Web Platform and Services must be put in front of the Australian TV, News, Radio and Paper providers ASAP. You must be capable and proven in writing a thorough and appealing press release for our services, and be PASSIONATE about consumer rights while understanding the concept that Australian Consumers is tired of being treated as Cash Cows by Business and all levels of Government. Australia is our market, so ideally you must be able to write to appeal to every media outlet within our borders. I have tried the big firms and they have failed or just don't have the right person for the task. They think we are selling a product, whereas we provide a free Consumer service for all Australians to use before purchasing products, performance. or services. The TV news today stated that over 80,000 complaints had been registered against one communication provider in the last twelve months that is 79,999 too many. Australian consumers can no longer be complacent and expect the Banking, Telcos and other business to do the right thing. We are registering 5 million Australian consumers to create the largest Consumer Power Group ever created in Australia. Will your Press release be the Catalyst to start this massive campaign??

Edit Press Release (Written) to be More Effective

$135

Melbourne VIC 3004, Australia

24th Feb 2017

Need an ex journalist or editor to edit a press release that is already written. The release itself is a regular release and news, has had media pickup before. What I need is someone who knows style guides and what ****** journalists off to run a quick eye over the release and edit for grammar, style and writing to ensure more effectiveness when distributed via wire. Goal is to reduce editors time fixing release and avoid any hot button issues that lead to editors killing a release. It is around 600 words or so so wouldn't take very long for an editor. Also an advice welcome. I am looking for some writing help in the future to make us more effective depending on how I get along with the person. Prefer someone who worked in U.K. Or US media as that's the main target.
