        A press release is a great way to get the best kind of marketing done for you - third party credibility.....when someone else writes about you [in a newspaper, magazine, blog, tweet, amazon review....].

        The release is intended to convey some news......what constitutes news can be almost anything.....from a

      I get ideas for press release topics by searching on PRWeb.com. You can see what other people write about in their releases and get ideas about structure.

    98% of the time an online press release is a great way for most internet marketers to spam the crap out of online sites and journalists. Not always true...but usually.
