Today's blog is about the almighty Press Release. Some tips from Chapter 8 from Everday Public Relations for Lawyers are below:

Tip One:
A press release is a crucial public relations tool that can be used in a variety of ways. You may read countless articles and online commentaries that say the press release is dead, but that’s a bunch of malarkey.

Tip Two:
Some great ways to use a press release besides sending it to the media include:
• Send it to current and prospective clients, vendors, referral sources, family and friends as “Firm News.”
• Include it on your firm Web site.
• Send it to all of your firm’s employees via e-mail and encourage them to pass the news along to their contacts.
