I am a newly certified personal trainer. I would love to find a ready written news release to submit to the local newspaper.
Hello Peggi Yeager,
Congratulations and welcome to the Personal Trainer field.
I would just go to my local newspaper office. I also belong to a business group with a great writer and photographer who would both be very happy to help anyone. Do you have access to such a group? If not, I am sure you will be able to find one for some great leads.
Good luck to you and enjoy your new career.
You might find something that has already be created by someone else, but that’s just that. If you wish to do a news release you will have to write one that is unique to you and your business and for the event you are looking to do it for. You could write something up and then have someone to proofread it and make sure it’s correct and makes sense. As Natalie suggested, networking groups are great places for finding such people/professionals. Another option for you to consider is to place an ad on Craigslist. You will be surprised how many people are looking for PT services there (and it’s free).
I would advise you to write your own release. It gives you a chance to begin working on how you want to be perceived in your commmunity and it brings your personal touch to what you are trying to say.
You should contact the publications you want to have publish the press releases. They can tell you how they want the release to be formatted. You may also want to ask them how you can arrange for them to do a feature article on your business. I did this with our local newspaper a few times.
I have also started reading newspaper because it a very good way to get all sorts of news on regular basis. Try to learn about project TopicsMill and also read dissertation topics I think, using technology all the day is not good so we should also try to read newspaper which can relax us as well.
