Press Release Guide 2022: How to write & pitch like a pro

A library of resources containing everything you need to write the best press release, from top industry examples to templates that suit any taste.

Defining your audience

Before you can write a masterful press release, you need a clear picture of who you're writing it for. I don't just mean a particular publication or sector; you need to think about the audience that your contacts are creating content for. Find an angle that appeals to them and you've done the journalist's (blogger's, YouTuber's...) work for them.

These articles will give you a grounding in how you should think about your press release and the story you want to tell.
