The 12 Ironclad Rules for Issuing Press Releases

This greatly enhances credibility with your site visitors because they see that you were just covered in the New York Times (and they can read your full release on that portal instead of reading it on your site). Imagine how that makes them feel about your brand.

Rule No. 12: Enhance Your Release with SEO and Pictures

Most press release distribution services offer a few very worthwhile add-ons. The first is the SEO[19] enhancement feature. By all means, opt for do-follow links. A few more high PR backlinks[20] will never hurt your website.

Consider expanded distribution to hit more sites, albeit at an increased cost. For example, if you are a multinational company, consider worldwide distribution with AP Newswire syndication.

If you are a domestic company, target national regions to hit every major news medium in the U.S. instead of the limited newsfeeds in your set geo-region.

Finally, pictures, videos, and sound files are worth a million words. Adding these multimedia elements to your press release helps gather more attention, improves social media reach[21], and drives brand awareness[22].
