- These are some great
reasons to notify the Press. Any business can
benefit from the potential media coverage
generated from a well-structured press
release. An article or an editorial reference
about your new product, website, or
announcement in a prominent publication can
assist in achieving your business objectives.

can substitute the value of a news segment in

Do Press Releases
Telling the Press about
your product or service is one thing, getting a
write up is something else. The key to getting
Press coverage is TARGETING your release to the
appropriate market. If you just opened up a new
Apple Farm in Kentucky, it would not be
appropriate to announce this to an entertainment
editor in New York. If you properly target your
announcements to a targeted media base you run a
much better chance of getting mentioned in the
press. Remember, Media Magnet Pro contains over
24,000 media contacts, so if you mail your release
to just 50, and if just one major newspaper
or magazine picks it up, the potential audience
that sees your story could be in the millions!
How much traffic Can I
There is no set rule, and
no way to accurately project this. This will be
determined by the press publication, the
publications audience, and how many publications
pick up your story. However, if just one
major newspaper or magazine picks it up, the
potential audience that sees your story could be
in the millions!

- No matter how easy we try to make it, we
understand that some people are not
comfortable in either writing or sending their
own Press Releases. There are a number of
other services that specialize in this. While
these services typically charge $200.00 and up
for each press release submission, they are
available. Here are just a few:
Press Release Distribution
emailing a Press Release considered SPAM?
Sending out your press
release to every media contact in the
database would certainly be considered SPAM and
should NEVER be done. Media Magnet Pro was NOT
designed to be used as a SPAM tool. However,
sending your press release by email or snail mail
to a targeted list of media contacts whose
job it is to report on new and interesting news
topics is not SPAM, as long as you have carefully
targeted your mailings. For instance, If you just
opened up a new Apple Tree Farm in Kentucky, it
would not be appropriate to announce this to an
entertainment editor in New York. If you properly
target your announcements to a targeted media base
you run a much better chance of getting mentioned
in the press. NOTE: Blasting your press release to
an UN-Targeted audience and then being cancelled
by your ISP for SPAM or any other negative reason
for abuse of the software does negate and cancel
the refund policy. You can not abuse this software
and then be reimbursed for doing so.
Reading through press
releases is a principal part of each editors job.
We do NOT suggest you do an email blast to
every editor in the database, this is why we have
simplified the task of categorizing the data so
you can limit your mailings to only pertinent
If you have any further
concerns about spam, it is always a good idea to
first check with your Internet service provider
and inform them of your intentions. Here is a
letter you could use to
inform your ISP of your intentions.

Magnet Pro that we back it up with a 30 day

dollars by handling your own press release
distribution. Please note: Media Magnet can
