Dateline – This is the location of your release in terms of city, state etc. and also the date of the release.

Body – The body of your press release should contain interesting, valuable and useful information for your reader. Think about them and what they would be interested in. If you were reading someone else’s press release, what kind of information would you be interested in knowing and in what context?

Think about covering the ‘who, what, where, when, why and how.’

Also, you may want to put the most engaging and interesting content first and work your way through the body with additional information.

Remember to make use of quotes to really drive your point across to the reader and use key words to help in search engine optimization if your release is distributed digitally.

Boilerplate – This section of your press release is where you give the readers a brief summary about your company.
