Digital marketing professionals are always looking for new ways to get press releases picked up by news sources. Most of us look for tips and tricks, but tend to overlook our very own writing. Though your writing may be flawless, there are specific words and phrases that instantly turn off reporters.  Put yourself in the shoes of a reporter. Reporters receive 500 press releases a day and read the same words over and over again. Try to leave the following words out of your next press release:

  1. Out-of-the-box
  2. Award-winning
  3. Utilize
  4. Leading/leader
  5. Fast-growing
  6. High-performance
  7. Engagement
  8. Revolutionary
  9. Exclusive
  10. Breaking
  11. “We’re pleased” or “We’re excited to announce”
  12. Best
  13. Innovative
  14. Exclusive
  15. Ground breaking
  16. Impact
  17. Launched
  18. Solution
  19. Never before
  20. Synergy

By omitting words like the ones in the list above, your press release will be easy to read and more importantly, believable. Words or phrases such as exclusive, best, never before and revolutionary seem exaggerative. When journalists see words like this in every press release, the word itself loses its value. For helpful writing tips and tricks for your next press release, be sure to read, “Fresh Writing Tips for Press Releases.”
