30 Ideas For Press Release Marketing Topics

Have you heard the buzz about press release marketing, but are confused as to how a press release can benefit you? Then you’re not alone. Most entrepreneurs believe press releases are only for giant corporations, so they aren’t using them. Which just means more opportunity for you.

It used to be that press releases were submitted in the hopes that somebody in the press would actually publish the release, giving the company thousands, or even tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in free advertising. But not any more. In today’s “Flat Earth” climate, a press release can be about almost anything, from anybody.

The real benefits of a press release are the direct traffic from the press release directories, and the high quality links back to your site.

Don’t think you have any “press release material” to write about? Here’s a tip: stop thinking of your press release as a press release, and instead consider it a “newsy” article. In truth, that’s what most press releases are.

That being said, here are 30 brainstorming topics to help you get some ideas on what to write about in your press release marketing.
