With the media receiving thousands and thousands of messages and press releases per day, how do you grab the attention of the media and your audience in a news release? Corporate communicators and public relations professionals may have practiced the “inverted pyramid” style of press release writing for years. Does that standard still hold true? If your organization is in a crisis and does not have a team of experienced writers, should you consult with a crisis communications expert or public relations expert? What are some of the best leads you have seen over the years?
We want to hear your thoughts and your experience on this media relations topic. This Monday we are asking you, our social media followers and BraudCast viewers, “What is the best way to begin a news release?” Please share your opinion with us and it may be shared this Friday in a follow-up video.
