Press releases are a potentially powerful tool for any business that wants some media attention. We did a press release for SmashMyViper.com back in the day and got in a couple newspapers, a couple radio interviews, and a magazine interview. It’s now time for us to do one for my IT business, Tri Megatech.
The key to a successful press release is in both the writing, as well as the distribution. For my IT business, we won’t be using any distribution lists like PRWeb because we only want to target very local media, and that can be done manually. When writing the release, it’s important to have a good angle, something that an editor will want to write about. Give them the story.
Our angle is that the cost of employees in MD are one of the top three highest concerns for for independently owned businesses. By taking advantage of our managed IT services, a small-mid sized business can save a ton of money. When the average IT specialist will cost a company $71,000, it can cost them a lot of money when they may not need all the services. My company offers service contracts to provide IT needs when needed for much less. Check out the press release and let me know what you think:
