Are Press Releases Like Advertising?
Similar, but very different. They both bring visitors to your business, but sometimes a press release can be more cost effective to you because of the web surfer’s trained eye. Advertising on the internet is huge and it’s getting more and more competitive. Nowadays people aren’t just looking at sponsor ads, which are usually highlighted in different colors and scream “Hey, I paid for this spot”, people want authority sites. Authorities are known media sources such as Yahoo News, Google News, Associated Press, and an optimized press release is the way to achieve this. I usually don’t look at sponsor ads anymore because of all the marketing I’ve done with them in the past. However, I always check out articles and optimized press releases about the subject I’m searching for.
Note: People subscribe to many news release services on the web so press releases generate a broad scope of viewers, not just targeted searchers.
