Reasons to Resubmit a Press Release
Not all press releases go smoothly the very first time.
Some press releases get rejected the first time for many reasons.
Reasons such as:
- Include too many links: You certainly want a link to a page or two on your website from within your release, but too many links can be horrendous. It can really hinder your press release and get it rejected by distribution companies. A rule of thumb is to never include more than 1 link per 100 words. So, for a 500-word press release, you would be able to include up to 5 links.
- Formatting and readability issues: The quickest way to get your press release rejected is to have bad formatting. The format of your press release is the first thing distribution outlets notice. Any type of odd indentation or spacing is a huge red flag. Your press release should also be easy to read.
- Didn’t proofread: If your press release has misspelled words or other grammatical errors, most quality press release distribution companies will reject it. You should always proofread any press release that you intend to send out. This is actually a blessing in disguise for you. You wouldn’t want to get your brand out there with grammatical mistakes.
- Too many personal opinions: News is supposed to be fact-based, not opinion-based. You need to make sure that your press release is written from an unbiased point of view. If your press release sounds like a sales pitch or marketing hype, it will likely get declined.
But, don’t worry:
These reasons can be corrected, and your press release can still be a prime candidate for resubmission.
