NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As a cost-effective tool to gain exposure with both the media, as well as a company's target audience directly, the influence of the press release has never been greater and should be an essential component of any small business marketing and PR plan.
Many small business owners, however, mistakenly assume that the press release should be utilized to share traditional news content and must fit into a certain template. PR consultant and author, Dan Janal, in a recent article of PR Newswire's small business PR Toolkit, suggests otherwise. "Thinking Outside the Box When Writing your Next Press Release" offers five tips to help you develop and distribute content that is both relevant, interesting and newsworthy.
