Copy what works from some of the biggest names in gaming
Riddle me this. You produce multiple press releases per year and send them out to your media contacts – great! But...
- Where do these press releases then go?
- Where can those archives be found?
Drumroll, please. Behold, the visual, the interactive, the engaging online newsroom.
By publishing your press releases to an online newsroom, together with biographical information about your brand and all the official media assets a journalist could want, you're building more than just an online hub for media contacts: you're recording your brand's legacy and arming people to tell your story. And while you're at it, you're replacing your outdated press kit with something bigger, better and far easier to maintain.
On top of all that, you're adding an extra channel to your distribution: organic traffic.
Because you can optimize your newsroom for discoverability, it'll come up in Google search results for related terms (Prezly newsrooms come SEO-ready as standard, but if you're using a different publisher you might need to speak with them or fiddle with the settings).
