Hire a Professional Journalist to Write a Press Release
Press Releases Written by a Professional Journalist
“Should we write a press release?”
For many business owners, that question comes up at least once a month. If you think you need one, you probably do. And if you actually need one, you should probably hire a professional journalist to write it for you.
What can a professionally written press release do?
A well-written press release can bring your business a level of exposure that you can’t get with traditional advertising. Press releases can be used to announce new products or services, a company expansion, or big events — as long as it’s news, a press release can get it out there.
There are two ways we can use press releases to benefit your business.
Local coverage: If you’re hosting a big event that the public needs to know about, launching a product that everyone absolutely must have, or donating a portion of your profits to charity, we need to alert the media. We’ll do that by creating a short, to-the-point news release that gets journalists interested in covering your story. We’ll cover the 5 Ws and even the H.
National coverage: If you’re more interested in getting national coverage (and a boat load of famous website logos to put under the “As Seen On” tab of your website, such as Yahoo! Finance, The Sacramento Bee, The Orlando Sentinel, et al.), we can transform your press release into a well-rounded story and distribute it through Vocus or PR Newswire. You’ll enjoy the temporary benefits of extra link juice when one of these services distributes your press release to major news sites, too.
Why Hire a Professional Journalist to Write Your Press Release?
It’s important to hire someone who knows what she’s doing, that’s why. I’ve seen some of the worst excuses for press releases created by “writers,” and not only are they a waste of your time; they’re a waste of your money.
While I can’t guarantee that major news sites will pick up your press release, I can tell you that I’ve never written one that didn’t make it big.

Unique Web Copy Testimonials
Angie develops a great deal of content for the Bridgemore Village blog, and as the weeks have passed, we have watched it climb in the search engines. She sends screenshots of where we are, and we’re now beating our hottest competition. I highly recommend working with Angie – she will help your business get recognition and grow.
My firm has been working with Angie for almost a year, and she’s our go-to writer. She’s done extensive keyword research that’s been right on-target. I’d recommend her to any law firm who needs a little boost in the content department and a push on social media. She is reliable, professional, and very personable. Angie goes above and beyond the call of duty for her clients!
Angie, we appreciate you!
All the time over the last year that you have volunteered for our organization has been stupendous! Now to help us (a multiple organization collaboration) with the media related needs which are ultimately for the border children coming to North Texas is just so amazing!
You are an inspiration to your peers, a true patriot, and an amazing writer!
Your service to humanity is beautiful.
When we needed 33 landing pages and a serious overhaul on our existing website copy, our designer recommended Angie, and we are so glad she did. She handled loads of research and immediately created copy that really connects us with our customers, and her SEO skills are top-notch; we’re able to reach a broader audience and convert more traffic than we could before.
Angie has been working with our Toronto law firm for nearly two years to develop content for our website and help with our SEO. No matter what topics I have given her, she has consistently met deadlines and delivered articles that are well researched, well written and highly engaging. I would (and have) recommended Angie to others without hesitation.
I HIGHLY recommend using Angie for your website copy writing. Her prices are the most competitive and her work is excellent. Her SEO knowledge is extensive and she is always on top of the latest algorithm changes. I send all of my real estate & mortgage clients to her and she ALWAYS takes amazing care of them. She initially reviews and analyzes their websites and then sends them a custom proposal and in addition she gives them a detailed explanation of the SEO advantages that her new copy will provide. No one in the industry provides this level of service at the competitive prices she offers. A true class act!
Extraordinarily talented and reliable, Angie stands out among other writers in a crowded industry chiefly for these two traits. She also has an unflinching willingness to see projects through to completion. Because of these skills, Angie can be trusted with any project, under any circumstances. I can vouch for the quality of her work with no caveats or reservations.
Angie’s attention to detail and timely delivery of almost 40 pages of copy made working with her a pleasure. She sent over our content in batches and copied our web designer each time so we could approve and publish everything in one shot, and we look forward to working with her again.
We have worked with Angie on and off, every time we need a copywriter, for about six years. I have never been happier with a writer (and I have been working with writers for a very long time) because she never misses a beat. She always seems to be sunny and cheerful as well, which to me is the real clincher. I have recommended her to several colleagues who have also used her services and were very happy with the results. Highly recommend!
