Press Releases

One of the most effective ways of getting your message ‘out there’ is to create and distribute a press release. With an attention-grabbing headline, the right news hook and distributing to the most relevant media can achieve valuable publicity and increase brand value.

Luminescence Press Releases

The challenge of press releases is that there is a relatively low barrier to entry and journalists are inundated with release after release, often receiving (seriously) hundreds every week into their mailbox.

There is both an art and a science to press release writing; the art is in selecting and displaying the information that will cut through this ‘noise’, while the science is in the format, structure and following certain conventions about timing, attachments and additional information.

The other challenge for firms can be in accessing the right journalists, bloggers and other online influencers. Luminescence has a ‘live’ database of 500,000 journalists, with access to information about areas of specialism, deadline days and forward features lists, as well as direct contact details.

Our press release service is ideal for:

  • Time poor, work-overloaded internal PR & Marketing departments
  • Smaller firms who do not have an internal PR & Marketing department
