In the fast-paced world of online media, capturing the attention of journalists, presenters, and influential media owners is key to amplifying your message. wlw future provides a strategic one-week plan to ensure your press release not only reaches the right screens but also prompts engagement and coverage.

Day 1: Setting KPIs and Objectives Before you hit ‘send’, establish clear Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and objectives for your press release distribution. This will not only guide your strategy but also help in measuring success. Consider what you aim to achieve: Is it brand visibility, traffic to your website, or the number of published articles?

Day 2: Audience Database Creation: Understanding your audience is crucial. Spend time researching and creating a database of contacts who are most likely to be interested in your news. This includes pinpointing the relevant journalists and outlets that cater to your industry in the UK.

Day 3: Developing Email Messaging: Your email should be compelling and newsworthy. Craft a message that highlights the unique angle of your press release. Remember, the goal is to make the journalist’s job as easy as possible, so clarity and relevance are paramount.

Day 4: Assets Assessment: Gather all the necessary assets that will support your press release. This could include images, infographics, or additional documents that provide depth to your story.

Day 5: Crafting and Assessing the Press Release: Draft a press release that encapsulates your message succinctly. It should be factual, engaging, and, above all, newsworthy. Once the draft is ready, assess it against your KPIs and objectives to ensure alignment.

Day 6: Pushing Emails Through a 3-Step Follow-Up Campaign: Don’t rely on a single email. Implement a three-step follow-up campaign to keep your press release top-of-mind. The follow-up should be tactful and persistent, without being intrusive.

Day 7: Getting in Touch with Prospects: Now it’s time for personal outreach. Engage with your prospects directly, offering them exclusive insights or quotes to make your story stand out.
