What’s a Press Release Boilerplate? ACCESSWIRE Explains

Wednesday, 27 September 2023 10:00 AM


RALEIGH, NC / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2023 / ACCESSWIRE, a newswire service standout that provides regional, national and global news to thousands of clients worldwide, understands the importance of using a proper press release format when crafting a campaign.

Everything from the press release headline to the boilerplate plays a vital role in creating and distributing a newsworthy campaign that addresses the information readers and the media want.

The boilerplate, in particular, provides a brief company description and allows brands to share additional details about their organization.

"Though it's located at the end of a press release, the boilerplate is essential for an online news release. Without it, it's incomplete," said Jennifer Hammers, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Issuer Direct. "A press release boilerplate is a condensed ‘About Us' section that covers the basics of a company including who they are, what they do, the services/products they offer and their mission."

When companies write or refresh their press release boilerplate, ACCESSWIRE suggests they keep the following in mind:

  • Keep the content to around 100 words.
  • Infuse key search engine optimization (SEO) keywords into the text.
  • Include recent awards/accolades that highlight credibility.
