About Press Releases
I continue to revise the press release. The latest online version is here.
The actual press release version has only four links.
I want to encourage more press releases so I will explain how it works. You sign up with http://prweb.com.
The cost of a basic press release that targets five categories and two metropolitan areas is $80.
My five categories are government, news, environment, health, and something else. My two metro areas are Seattle Bellevue Everett and Olympia.
The $80 press release cannot have imbedded links. However, you can type in five links and no more.
I have only four typed in links, but they link to a web page where the full press release is found plus all the links.
The editors are pretty helpful. They told me that I need to be announcing an event or an action, not just the release of a position paper. So I changed the focus to occupying Seattle City Hall and having a showdown with mayor, city council members, and city attorney.
The press release will be posted to PR Web at 3 a.m. Monday morning, which PR says is the best time.
Every time you revise the press release, they have to approve it.
