NEW YORK, October 4, 2021 (Newswire.com) - That's what most marketers say with an inquisitive tone. That's because press release distribution has gotten a bad reputation over the years for being stale and old-fashioned.
But are press releases still effective? Can they amplify a brand's message? Are they the missing piece to a company's overall media and marketing strategy?
The answer to each of these questions is an emphatic yes.
Press release distribution is a powerful marketing vehicle when leveraged correctly.
This was the topic Newswire's CEO and President, Joe Esposito, covered in a recent PRWeek article titled, "Press releases aren't dead, but this approach to them is."
In this article, Esposito encourages companies of all sizes to look at the cable industry to see how release distributors should change their strategy.
"Once streaming companies started to innovate and allowed customers to select channels that addressed their content interests, lowered their costs, provided more control and improved value, the traditional cable model fell apart," he said.
Much like with other facets of media and marketing, change is constant and for companies to utilize press release distribution to its fullest potential, they need to reassess their approach.
"'That's how we've always done it,' is a dangerous phrase in the business world," said Charlie Terenzio, CMO and SVP of Media and Marketing Communications. "Joe's ability to clearly articulate the need for innovation when it comes to press release distribution can help companies who are paying attention make significant progress in achieving their goals."
