Local Business: Press Releases

Press releases are an effective and relatively inexpensive way to build SEO, get company news out, and increase sales- ultimately making businesses more successful.

Very few online marketers/marketing agencies understand the press release strategy and therefore do not offer this service. By combining your internet marketing knowledge with press releases, you have the ability to offer a service that will distinguish you from the competition and build an additional source of income.

You (the business owner or consultant) will learn...

  • What decisions must be made
  • The best way to provide information for press releases
  • The advantages/disadvantages of an SEO PR vs. an Editorial PR

This module also discusses options for press release submission. It includes the advantages and disadvantages of paid vs. free submissions, company recommendations, company reviews, and client testimonials.
