And so goes the increasing belief among many businesses that traditional press releases and media relations are no longer viable in a market where more news is published and accessed on line.

Here’s a news flash: A survey by Oriella PR Network of 750 journalists found that most of them value targeted, e-mailed press releases from PR professionals when they are gathering and reporting news. The 75% of journalists who find press releases useful said the content must be “high quality and well targeted.”

With “high quality” and “well targeted” as the deciding factors in the effectiveness of a press release, it’s easy to see the value in using public relations professionals, such as the team at mRELEVANCE. We have spent years building relationships with reporters and learning the types of news presentations that are most helpful to them.
