Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Press Release.
Ideas for this Article come from Penny Sansevieri, Author Marketing Experts
The Press Release is an important item and, fortunately, there is a standard format for these. Before looking at them let me remind you that there are on the internet press release sites. These are structured to allow you to focus on the information rather than the structure itself. And some are free.
HEADER: Contains ‘FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT:’ followed below by Contact Person, Company name (optional), Telephone #, Fax #, Email address, and website (url). [These are all separate lines.]
A good picture of your book cover goes to top right across from Headline.
This should attract the reader’s attention.
The subtitle reinforces the headline but should not repeat the headline.
The body begins with the opening paragraph that includes city, state, and date. This paragraph includes the who, what, when, and why of your book. Be brief.
Here are the details for your book [Title, publisher, author, ISBN, Publication date, Pages, Format (Hard cover, Soft Cover, or Ebook)
### or –30– (centered)
Tip of the Day : Craft a well-structured press relief. Consider using professional press release websites.
