5 Steps to Building a PR Campaign

  1. Identify the story you want to share with the public: What makes it unique, compelling news?
  2. Set your objectives for the press release: for example do you want to announce a new product at your organization or how you are helping save an endangered animal?
  3. Prepare your draft message: Gather your facts…
  4. Write your release (see the example in the resource section)
  5. Submit your release and follow up with a phone call or email: ideally within 5 days of submitting
