Press Releases    It is important to get your party event and rental business as much free press as possible.  Having your business’ name consistently in front of your target audience is certainly a benefit to your company.  One of the most important things is that press coverage tends to be free, leaving your marketing budget to be used elsewhere.  Press releases can be about anything from a new product or service that your party event and rental business is offering to upcoming events and functions.  Compile a list of local entertainment websites, magazines, blogs and other third party sources.  A simple online search should help you to acquire this list.  If possible try to find a specific contact to send the press release to, if there is not a person specified for press releases look for the editor or assistant editor as your contact point. Press releases should be concise and to the point.  Focus on features and benefits of your business and be sure to tout the services that you offer. Your press release should be 2-3 paragraphs and should always include contact information, including address, phone, website and email.  It is also advisable to include a paragraph at the end, separate of the release itself, with your company information and background.  This will establish the credibility of your company.Signs and Stationery to UseWhen marketing, you must get the word out in order for people to know you have a business.
