The Anatomy of a Press Release

A press release, usually contains:

  • Business name, logo, and “boilerplate” section at the end that tells about your company
  • Dateline, including the city and state of your headquarters or of the office making the release
  • An attention-grabbing headline
  • A sub-headline that provides additional information
  • Instructions on who to contact for more information
  • And, of course, the press release content itself
