Posted on September 10, 2010 by ac96051

One of the best ways to increase brand awareness and to build traffic to your site is Press / News  Release Writing and Distribution.

You can write as many press releases as you’d like, but remember: writing a press release is NOT advertising! Your content must be news worthy, otherwise, instead of creating a positive impression and attract notoriety for your business and products/services,  is you might  end up creating a negative impact. For guaranteed high impact results, is best to hire a public relations professional to help you with press release writing and distribution.

Share your news with the worldwide audience

There are many websites where you can distribute your news releases, and some of them provide low-cost or free press release distribution services.
While free press release distribution can give you some limited exposure, for an efficient news distribution we recommend using a paid distribution service and the help of a professional SEO Consultant to write your news and submit them to the media.
