Press releases are an excellent and cost-effective communication tool. Announce promotions, new product lines, mergers, milestones, or a number of pieces of news within your business, non-profit, or group. The intention is to share your news with the media, be it local (newspapers, radio, television), regional, and/or national (social networks, blogs, search engines, etc.) so they in turn share your news with their audience, creating excellent (and free) press for your company where you control the message.
Feit Can Write can help you flesh out ideas for press releases, craft a release that meets the necessary standards, is newspaper-friendly (i.e. ready to print with little to no revisions), and will present your news in a positive, professional light.
The sample press release below is announcing a new hire (my addition as a contributing writer for HuskerMax.com, widely recognized as the destination for news and information on the Nebraska Cornhuskers). New hire announcements make great releases, as they recognize the talent you have added while promoting your company and growth at the same time.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
HuskerMax.com Adds Feit to Roster of Husker Commentators
Lincoln, NE – September 6, 2011 – Leading Nebraska Cornhusker website HuskerMax.com added Dave Feit to their already impressive roster of contributing writers today. Feit will post regular content throughout the 2011 football season, including game recaps, analysis, opinion, and humor.
HuskerMax.com co-founder David Max was quick to bring Feit on board after reading Feit’s Husker commentary and other writings found on his personal blog. The addition of Feit brings the number of HuskerMax contributors to eight – including Max, Tad Stryker, Ken Jarecke, and former Husker I-Back Calvin Jones.
Feit’s first article, a review and critique of the Huskers’ season opener against Tennessee-Chattanooga, was posted on Tuesday. It features sections highlighting key questions that were answered, as well as things still unknown after the first game. Feit also recognizes five Huskers for their outstanding performances, and notes five areas for improvement.
In 2011, HuskerMax has strengthened its position as the place to find “everything you ever wanted to know about the Huskers”. In addition to the new contributing writers, HuskerMax.com has partnered with NRG Media radio stations KLIN-1400 in Lincoln and KOZN-1620 in Omaha to provide exclusive content for the site, including podcasts, reports, and columns. Max said, “We always knew that HuskerMax was a great web resource and web community for Husker fans. Now we can take it to the next level.”
