What’s a Press Release?

The Small Business Encyclopedia[3] defines a press release as “A public relations announcement issued to the news media and other targeted publications for the purpose of letting the public know of company developments”. It is a short, compelling news story created by a public relations professional and delivered to a target audience.

Benefits of Writing a Press Release for Your New App Launch

In case you’re still wondering what to expect when writing this type of content, let’s take a look at the major benefits of press releases.

Press releases are often written by the public relations department within a company.
