NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Press release distribution company, 24-7PressRelease, has teamed up with writing and editing service Prompt Proofing to offer suggestions on improving your press release:

1. Keep your press release brief.

A length of 250 to 350 words is ideal; you want the press release to act as a teaser to encourage someone to find out more about your product or business. If it provides too much information, it will both bore the reader and stop them from wanting to inquire further.

2. Choose your keywords wisely.

As 24-7PressRelease is one of the only press release services not to limit the number of anchored text links that you can include in a press release, it is understandable that many customers want to maximize this feature. However, the most effective number of anchored text links in a release is around four to six, no more. Also, try to have the links directing to different web pages, rather than the home page all the time.

3. Don't make them too advertorial.

Make sure your press releases are informative, not merely trying to sell the reader something. People tire of advertisements very quickly, and media outlets will not even consider releases that read like sales pitches.
