NEW YORK, April 5, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Newswire, an industry leader in press release distribution services, puts the experience and expertise of its team to use every day to help companies of all sizes and industries turn their owned media into earned media through strategic press release distribution.
As a refresher, a press release is a compelling and concise news story that's typically written by a public relations professional and distributed to targeted media sources to announce something newsworthy.
In addition to consistency and strategy, a key component to success and driving results when it comes to press release distribution is storytelling.
In fact, according to Search Engine Watch, storytelling can boost conversion rates by 30%.
With this statistic in mind, how can companies harness the power of storytelling when developing press release content?
Here are a few ideas to consider:
- When writing your next press release, think of yourself as the narrator. How can you create context and set the scene for the message you're articulating to your target audience? Remember, press releases should be part of your overarching media and marketing strategy. Use this marketing channel as a means to share your brand's voice and position in the marketplace.
- Think about the reader. Why should they care about your company? Why should they care about your new product or service? Try to imagine the experience they're going to have with your brand. How can you provide value? Use the words and structure of your press release to guide them towards the solution your brand provides.
- Create connection. Developing a newsworthy angle is a crucial step in leveraging storytelling in your press releases. Once you've identified your topic and angle, think about how to excite and entice your target audience with your words. Be concise and keep in mind how you tell your story is just as important as the story itself.
"Press releases that infuse a layer of storytelling have a better chance of capturing the attention of the media and the company's target audience," said Charlie Terenzio, CMO and SVP of Media and Marketing Communications at Newswire. "Newsworthiness and storytelling go hand-in-hand, and both are integral factors that determine the success of a press release."
