How to Use the Digital System
The automated system has the ability to alleviate some of the pressure off of employees, by ensuring that solid communication is kept regarding press release details. Time management is important in these scenarios, and many businesses want to increase the amount of writing they are completing. This can be tough when staff have other duties, which is where the digital solution is able to take over. There are certain tasks that can be handled with automation, making the process much smoother for everyone. There are just a few key steps for both business owners are press release writers to follow, to ensure everything goes according to plan.
Step 1- Press Release Writers
The first step for the press release writers to complete, is using the digital form. The writer provides their clients with an online form that can be filled out whenever there is a demand for a press release. Submitting this form digitally is a much simpler alternative to trying to contact the company with all of the relevant details.
Step 2- Business Owners
When a business owner decides they want a press release completed, all they have to do is fill out the form from the previous step. By including all of the necessary details of their request, owners can have their press releases done to their liking with just the click of a button.
Step 3- Press Release Writers
Once the owner submits their request form, the press release writer will be notified. It will then be added to their tracking pipeline, so they can keep note of when the request was submitted, and prioritize accordingly. Once they have finished the first draft, an email is sent to the requester so they can review and provide feedback.
Step 4- Simplify Requests
The owner who requested the press release will receive the first draft as soon as possible. Once it has been received, they can edit and provide any feedback, before submitting their notes via another online form.
Step 5- Simplify Requests
This second form provides the writer with the necessary information to make adjustments and ensure the press release is to the recipient's liking. They can then start preparing the next draft or final version of the press release. Once the writing has been approved and sent off, any other processes such as photoshoot management, or media relations tasks can begin.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create an organized press release management solution and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using digital technology to improve how businesses request their press releases.
