4. How to create a good press release?
Press releases are an excellent tool for companies to communicate with the outside world. This can be for simple information or the launch of a product, but also the way for a new company to announce its creation.

A good press release contains a catchy title, a complete summary, a detailed body of text, a precise presentation of your company, but also images, quotes and statistics.

What topic should you address in your press release?
Almost any organization can write a press release: it can be an SME, a large company, an NGO, an association or even a municipality. Depending on the company in question, the subject can be very different:
- The launch of a new product or service
- Participation in a contest or competition – and the final result
- A new partnership
- A customer testimonial
- Organizing an event
- A brand repositioning process
- Announce an acquisition or merger
- Managing a crisis within the company
