If you have been paying attention, you may have noticed that there is a buzz about press releases going on and for good reason. Here are a few tips to get you started on this daunting and some what intimidating task.
A press release is nothing more than a fact filled blog post, followed with some contact information and a link pointing to the site you designate. It sounds scary as hell but once you have done it a few times you will see it really does get to be a bit boring.
That is where press release services come in. Most are charging any where from $50 to $250 dollars to write and format a press release and syndicate it for you. This is a great option if you have the budget and have more important things to do than sit around and write articles all day.
The benefits are enormous because these articles are specifically geo-targeted and are very specific in nature. Another benefit is that they are easy to share and can really drive traffic if done thoughtfully. I have found that 250 to 400 words are great because they are quick and easy to read. This truly is a case of less is more.
Free Press Release is one service and there are many others available. Take control of your traffic and gain some SEO in the process.
