What is a press release?
A press release is used to inform the general public about newsworthy events surrounding your business or organisation, such as a new product, a recent acquisition or an unusual venture. A press release is submitted to local news outlets, publications relevant to your organisation and to general online press agencies for syndication.
Press releases are an excellent way to increase your business’ exposure for minimal outlay as the content can be published on your website and re-transmitted to other organisations for publications several times over. A press release provides an opportunity for you to “blow your own trumpet” and let the world know what is happening in your business.
Best of all, a few column inches in a magazine or newspaper thanks to a press release is far cheaper than paying for advertising space in the same publication!
Please contact us if you would like to know how Tech Write can put the power of the press to work for you.
The following are a small selection of press releases we have produced for several clients from various industries. All of which were circulated using online and offline press agencies. You can also find a number of examples in our Press Release Portfolio.

Local Churches Pool Resources To Offer Alpha Course
COC Heybridge and Maldon Elim churches join together to offer introduction to Christianity
Two Maldon-based churches have combined resources to bring the world-famous Alpha Course to local residents starting on the 29th September. Open to anyone, the Alpha Course discusses Christianity and offers everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Said Ted Mint, Senior Pastor of Christian Outreach Centre Heybridge, ‘We have run the Alpha Course a number of times in the past to great acclaim from those attending. Previous guests have told us how the course has been very useful in terms of answering some of life’s biggest questions and has allowed them to form new friendships both inside and outside of church. This opportunity to work with Pastor Rob Sefton from the Elim Church is an excellent opportunity to further improve and open the course to even more people in Maldon and Heybridge.’
Each evening of the Alpha Course features a meal, a short talk and then an open group discussion where guests share their thoughts and feelings on what they have heard. The Course is free to attend and every viewpoint is welcome.
The first part of the course starts at 7.00pm on Wednesday 29th September at the Christian Outreach Centre church building in Heybridge. Leaflets containing booking forms are currently being circulated to houses in the Maldon and Heybridge areas and further details are available from the COC Heybridge website at www.cocheybridge.co.uk
