Writing the perfect press release? We have a course for that!


Crafting an attention-grabbing press release can be a tricky task, but it really doesn’t have to be!

To help you out with your quest to deliver that killer hook, Sookio School has just launched a brand spanking new course - How to write an irresistible press release – the latest in our suite of fabulous tutorials. And best of all… you can watch it for free!

What is a press release, and what does it do?

Picture the scene; you have a great story, some important news, an event or product, and you want the world (or at least your potential customers) to know all about it. But paid ads are expensive, and your news is just too good not to share… so, what do you do? 

It’s time to go to the press, of course – and this means writing a press release.

You then start furiously typing a catchy communique that journalists and bloggers will jump at the chance to publish – which will bring you fortune and fame and all of the amazing things that great media coverage gets you, or so you hope!

You hit send and off it goes to anyone and everyone who you think might show an interest in what you have to say.

Never mind fortune and fame – I didn’t even get a reply! What gives?

Every business wants to get themselves noticed, and that means that the inboxes of most journalists and bloggers are overflowing with press releases – just like yours. The only way to get yours to the top of the pile, rather than moved to the trash, is by creating a truly unique example that stands out from all the rest – and luckily for you, the latest course from Sookio School shows you how to do just that!

So, what exactly will this course teach me?

All of our Sookio School courses are chock full of useful information and helpful hints, as well as some fantastic downloadable resources – providing everything you need to give your business a boost!

In this particular course, you’ll learn all the rules of writing a press release, such as:

·         Getting noticed by giving journalists what they want

·         Mastering structure and format

·         Writing killer press release headlines

·         Ending your email the right way

·         Common mistakes to avoid

·         Lots of useful hints and tips to make your next press release a hit!

There’s also a downloadable project that goes with the course, so you can put what you’ve learnt into action and start getting your business the attention it deserves.

Our courses are all written, and hosted, by Sue Keogh – the Director here at Sookio – and reflect her many years of working in the industry, and her vast experience of all things marketing and media. It’s safe to say you’ll be learning from one of the pros.

Sounds expensive? (spoiler alert; it’s not!)
