Too Small for News – Topic Ideas For A Press Release

When speaking to clients I often hear them say ‘we are a small company and don’t have any news’  so here are some ideas for topics for news stories, remember, news is just timely, interesting, unique, useful or informative content. You created your company for a reason. People work with you and buy from you for a reason. Those reasons are your news. And news appeals to everyone. Write those stories up and get them out there.

We are very happy to announce that we have launched a new website this week, Its an E-commerce website selling Jewellery. its called Nuts About Jewellery and can be found here www.nutsaboutjewellery.co.uk

As well as completing all of the design and contruction of the site, we are also looking after the ongoing promotion.

So How are we going to Market the site?

Firstly we will start with some basic SEO. Then we will start a campaign of online press releases and news syndication. after about 3 months we will increase the SEO activity to just below ‘frenzied’.

We will also be taking part in affiliate marketing which is  a great way of leveraging the traffic of other websites to make sales.

We will be adding the products to online shopping channels such as Google Shopping, and selling through third parties such as Amazon.

Finally we will be undertaking some discount voucher marketing, again a great way to generate sales.
