Timing Your New Release:

Deciding when to circulate a news release is not an exact science as many factors go into determining the publication date.  If you publish a news release too early media members may not feel that it is relevant or timely.  Releasing it too late can mean not giving customers enough time to plan or react to your news.

News cycles are another important factor in timing a traditional press release.  Printed media may be published daily, weekly or even monthly. Many articles are written well in advance of print media publication dates.  Usually media members need to pitch a story three or more months in advance of publication to allow for editing and print layout.  This timing is important when you are writing an article, launching a product, or hosting an event.

Call us at 443-543-5067, or email newsrelease@targetgov.com for help in planning the timing of your news releases.
