How to Write a Press Release to Complement Your Marketing in St. Paul and Minneapolis
When a lawyer, accountant, financial advisor or other professional wants to reach out to reporters and producers, a news release can be an effective vehicle. But because journalists receive so many, to get the coverage you want requires both picking your spot and knowing how to tailor the release to ensure it appeals to the reporter you want to reach.
Our media relations experts are very proficient at crafting and delivering news releases and other PR blasts that not just reach reporters but can generate a news story.
We get results because we don’t pester newsrooms with releases that are seen as mere spam by journalists. Rather, we help you craft your message so that when we write a release it is likely to have genuine value to a reporter, assignment desk editor or producer.
