    Hi, prete01!

    I can help you with this. But, first it would help to know what medium you're planning on using for your press release. Newspaper, television, radio, a flyer, some other medium, etc.

    Hi again, prete01!

    What I would suggest doing, is posting a draft of what you might want to say on this thread, without putting any contact information in it, so that I can review it and give you some suggestions as to how you might make improvements to it.

    Some of the information can even be fictitious so that you would not be using this site for advertising.

    Another thing that I would like to add, is that you really aren't limited much as far as the content that you can put on the Internet. But, if you're going to put information in the newspaper and on the radio, then you need to check with those entities as far as pricing and how much information you're going to be able to place with them.

    Distributing a press release to editors and news organizations is only half the battle. Writing a press release that will be published by the media is equally important. Press releases are public relations opportunities. A well written press release, can generate exposure in publications that could be worth thousands in advertising dollars, for a fraction of the cost.

    It is hard to first write a quality press release and we do have instructions with close to a template as possible for people to use but not only that, instead of hunting for the 100's of press release websites which is actually a lot harder than it sounds, we, after over 3 months of intense work on thise, created the best press release website list on the internet which you can use for free. Each one has it's pricing attached to it, etc. There are over 100 free places you can submit to also. Go to and use our list for free. There are two pages of this now as there are many of them and we continually update them whenever we discover more websites which isn't too often anymore so if you know of any that belong on this list, please let us know so we can add it. Thank you. Don't forget to read the pages for creating your press release as you can find most, if not all, of your answers there.
