You’re a marketer or you just want to get some buzz going about your business, right? So how do you do that? One piece of the puzzle is to utilize optimized press releases. When you include optimized press releases as part of your marketing strategy, you generate traffic, build buzz, and get more return on investment than almost any other form of online advertising or Internet marketing.
What is an optimized press release?
An optimized press release is just like a standard press release, but written and formatted for search engines. The average press release is about 400-500 words, depending on what you have to say for that particular release. For approximately every 100 words, you include a text link back to your website using a variety of keywords and phrases that your customers use when searching through their favorite search engine. Remember, Google counts for the majority of your traffic. (If you disagree with me on that, talk to me.)
