Including multimedia in press releases and other marketing materials is a great way to help people visualize and clearly understand your story. It can also lead to higher response rates.
Make information easy to digest.
Most people only scan online content instead of reading it word for word. Format text into small pieces of information that can easily be scanned. Break it up into small easily digestible bits of information by using bullet pointed lists or separating information with headers. This will help visitors easily scan the content and pull out important information.
Write attention grabbing headlines.
Drawing people in to read your content requires catching their attention in the first place. Make sure your headlines are catchy and convey a sense of the value of the information provided. Be sure to incorporate keywords to ensure to catch traffic from web searches.
