SAMPLE PRESS RELEASE TEMPLATE FOR ONLINE PRESS RELEASE DISTRIBUTION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Title of Your Press Release Will Go Here in Bold Type

When you distribute a news release on online press release distribution sites or newswires, you’ll often need to include a short summary of 1-4 sentences. The summary will be displayed along with the title, usually on newswire homepage listings, in RSS feeds, and other places where the full release won’t be listed.

City, State – Date – Type the first paragraph of the body of your press release here. This paragraph should very briefly answer the questions of Who?, What?, When?, Why?, and Where?

The second paragraph of the body of your press release should elaborate on your news, and give further details.

Continue with short paragraphs to discuss different aspects of your company’s or site’s news.

You can include a brief summary after the details of your press release.

About Your Company

You should include a boilerplate (it should be the same on every press release you send) with a basic description of who you are and what you do. Give relevant statistics, or any information that makes you seem newsworthy in a general sense (being a major international organization, a published author, etc.).For more information about Your Company/Site or (specific news, product, etc. in the release), please contact Your Name at Your Phone Number.

  18. I have a basic html website, and it has a few flash pieces. I want to promote a new CD in way that the website darkens, and the CD advertisement appears in the center of the screen (not as a pop-up, but within the current window).. . I know that this can be done, but I just dont know how. I would prefer if I could do it via CSS or PHP, but I’m sure Javascript will probably be the solution.. . Thanks for the help!.
