Book Launch Press Releases Can Boost Discoverability

Posted By Smith publicity     October 27, 2021    


Anyone who has had the desire to write a book and followed the process through to completion knows how good it feels to have others read your work. It's why most authors who have the budget choose to work with a book publicist. PR people are skilled at improving a book's discoverability which means bringing it to the attention of target readers. New titles are most newsworthy and of interest around their launch, and a good press release is a crucial promotion element. Well-crafted press materials are developed after careful thought and with high-quality content to spark interest.

All good authors put significant time and attention into writing the titles of their books, and the same goes for press release titles. They need to be of interest and succeed at attracting people's attention. One way to think about your crafting is to write a headline that you'd like to see the media use in a story about your book. The press release needs to make the case that a book is relevant and well suited to the moment, and it all begins with the headline. Some books have a natural connection to current events, and in those cases, they stand an even better chance of receiving coverage from relevant media.

Because press releases are invitations to the media to cover a book and bring information about it to their readers or viewers, you need to think about their audiences. It's why targeting and making sure your message reaches the proper people is so crucial. For example, if you've written a book about a financial topic of interest to business professionals, make sure to be plain about why the book is of interest to such an audience. It's also possible (and likely) that some books will have several groups of target readers. In those cases, it is a wise idea to have multiple versions of your press release.

It's also a well-established fact the media are bombarded with pitches and inquiries from publicists promoting books. It means you need to make your press release quick and easy to read because it's likely to be scanned along with many others at the time. Bullet points and other formatting devices to improve readability can go a long way in improving your chances of success. If you can draw in a reader with your bullet points, they'll likely read more of the text with interest. Use every device at your disposal to make your press releases competitive, and you'll improve your book's marketing campaign.
