To help business professionals around the globe make the most of their press release campaigns, Newswire created its Inverted Pyramid Smart Start.

- How to properly structure a press release

"A strong newsworthy press release topic is the first step of a successful campaign, the next is to structure the content in a way that's easy to read and makes the main message abundantly clear," said Jennifer Hammers, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Issuer Direct. "The combination of a strong story and a properly formatted press release is what helps brands stand out and capture the attention of the media and their audience."
It's reported that 70% of readers will only read the first paragraph which reaffirms the need for writers to address the most relevant information at the beginning of the press release.
When written correctly, press releases cover the who, what, where, when, why, and how. These are commonly referred to as the 5 W's + How and serve as the foundation for the inverted pyramid.
Newswire leans on its nearly 20 years of experience to help clients in a variety of industries uncover newsworthy topics, craft compelling press releases, identify media opportunities, launch targeted campaigns, and maximize their media and marketing strategies.
"This Smart Start guide shares press release writing tips and advice everyone from the novice to pro can use to properly structure their press release," added Hammers.
