If you have a new business or you are thinking of starting one, you need to be aware of the importance of certain types of marketing. Promotion is essential to getting your business or company off the ground and for attracting new customers to boost sales.
That all important word – marketing
Press releases can be used as one form of internet marketing that will alert customers to any new products or services that you are offering.

Press releases can be used in hundreds of ways and still prove to be incredibly beneficial to your business or company.

Getting your message across
A press release can alert the readers about a new website that your company may be launching, or invite them to the unveiling of a new, refurbished website with better content or new extras. It can be used as promotional material to inform about new services, products or information that your website may contain. All in all, it is a form of additional publicity that every website for a company or business needs. After all, the more exposure the better, right?
A press release is an announcement. It is completely up to you what this press release announces, but it can be distributed as a written e-mail or maybe even a video, or a slideshow. The more eye-catching you make it, the more people will want to read or watch it, and therefore the more publicity you will receive.
Personalize your press release
Press releases sent to customers can be as informal or as formal as you wish to make it and if sent to existing customers, can make them feel valued and important. This will then encourage them to use your services or buy your products again. Think of it as a personal touch, and then add that idea to the style of press release. You will then be hitting the right notes.
