Try to write in a Journalistic Style and also get your reader’s’ attention with an engaging first paragraph and a strong call to action soon to follow. Don’t waste any time and get directly to the point. Address each important point in this paragraph and address the who, what, where, why and how here as well. Logo: Add your company logo to the top of your press release.
