Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

First, select the right media for your story. Create a press list of reputable media that target your market. Familiarize yourself with each publication on your list so you'll know what kind of information they use and how they present it.

When you mail your release, send it to a specific writer or editor. You can send your release by mail, fax or e-mail. Call the publication to find out who to send your message to and that person's preferred method of receipt.

Don't write in generalities. Make sure your release contains beneficial information that is new, different or trendy.
