Here’s Why You Need a Press Release
As we near the end of 2019 -- the age of internet marketing, start-up companies, and the ever evolving, explosive virality of social media, public relations are still producing powerful results for entrepreneurs and business owners looking to gain more publicity and exposure to their brands. At PRsubmit.net, it is our mission to help you grow your brand by leveraging the power of major online news and media platforms. You can be another in our long list of satisfied clients to get a professional press release and advertise your brand the right way.
“But Wait!” we hear you saying, “Why do I need a press release? Didn’t you just say that we have social media and other means of advertising? Why invest money on a press release when I can use other, more inexpensive means?”
That’s a great question, and we’re here to help you discover just how much a press release can help you. Yes, it IS an investment. You’ll have to pay for one, however, it’s our mission that you get your money’s worth. That being said, let’s list just a few reasons for why a quality press releases are so awesome. Take a look…
Reasons to Get a Press Release
1. They’re Not as Expensive as You Think
Believe it or not, press releases today don’t cost a lot of money. In fact, paying for a single press release would require far less money than, for example, a healthy dose of paid advertising. Now, we know that most companies will go with paid advertising at some point in their future, as they’re looking to grow and attract more customers. That’s fine. In fact, we have nothing against paid ads, and we do that, too! It’s a great and effective tool to use. Keep in mind, however, that running successful paid advertisement campaigns is an ongoing expense and will cost money. Our recommendation is to do both, if your budget allows. Bill Gates may have said it best:
“If I was down to my last dollar, I would spend it on public relations.”
-- Bill Gates
2. Advancing in Your Field
When you issue a press release, you’re not just a company or a business; you’re THE company or business. You’re seen as the brand that was important enough for the press to report on. That’s HUGE! So many brands and businesses fail because they simply do what everyone else is doing. They conform, and as the result, they disappear into the crowd and never really get noticed. One famous quote really puts this into perspective:
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
-- Dr. Seuss
3. News Brings Customers
Sure, social media gets you clicks, but remember, news spreads fast. The better your press releases, the more people may want to work with you. It’s really that simple. Bear in mind, it is work. A great press release takes work to properly create, distribute, get accepted, and then published. No worries, however... We’ve got your back. Fortunately, companies such as our own PRSubmit.net, are experts in crafting some of the best-written press release content out there.

4. It’s Not Just the Words
We focused on writing in the last paragraph, but modern press releases go beyond that. They include images, infographics, graphs, and/or other visual aids. The more visual you get, the better may rate with potential clients. Oh, and it’s not just the clients. Potential investors and advertisers also pay attention to press releases. Right there, you have the chance to grab the attention of customers and perhaps some industry big-wigs, as well, to expand your business far and wide.
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers.”
-- Daniel J. Boorstin
5. Press Releases Have Evolved
This subheading might sound a bit dry, but it’s there for a reason. A modern press release isn’t like those of the past. You can share it online, attach it to blogs and forums, and so on. In fact, if people write articles using your press release, each fact that you provide them can be its own backlink. Imagine that — a document with links to about 20 different sources that back up the facts it presents. That’s POWERFUL! Consider using one of our press releases as part of our marketing strategy for yourself, your businesses, your clients, your brands, and your success.
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
-- T.S. Eliot

If you’re interested in expanding your business in a professional way, give PRSubmit.net a try. We believe you’ll be glad that you did.
“If a young man tells his date how handsome, smart and successful he is – that’s advertising. If the young man tells his date she’s intelligent, looks lovely, and is a great conversationalist, he’s saying the right things to the right person and that’s marketing. If someone else tells the young woman how handsome, smart and successful her date is – that’s PR.”
-- S. H. Simmons
