    Newsworthy Products or Service Capabilities Can Equate to New Sales

    Referring to press release samples that have proved to be successful for other businesses and even larger corporations is a very good idea when you're working on submitting your own to the media. It must be written in such a way that it will be deemed newsworthy to the media source that has the power of accepting/printing or rejecting the item you submit. Speaking of printing, businesses are no longer limited to the literal printed copies in newspapers and magazines. The web is an ever increasing source of news and information that the small business owner should take advantage of and a press release is one way of doing just that.

    A product press release is exactly the kind of thing that can help a small business boost sales and create some brand recognition. First, take a look at how a large corporation goes about doing it by reading Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate – Press Release, an informative piece presented on our Bright Hub Digital Photagraphy Channel. Right up front you're presented with the name of the business, what they specialize in, and essentially the targeted audience that this news will most greatly benefit. In this case, it's graphic designers and the users of digital media software in the desktop publishing or photograhy niche. That grabs a hold of your demographic and maybe draws in interest from other niches you didn't even consider.

    The Corel release then goes on to describe their product in such a way that makes it enticing and beneficial to anyone who might work with or need this particular kind of software. Notice how the writing casts a wider net by catering to both "family memory keepers and technology enthusiasts" alike. Who isn't a family memory keeper? After the teaser like language the nuts and bolts of the product are presented in clear language.
