For any business to yield conversions, there has to be a target audience. That’s what our outreach marketing experts are here for. Their job is to basically ensure that the right people see the right content. They put in the effort required to bring people (target audience) and products together.

Our Writers

At Daily Posts, we offer nothing but the very best, and that extends to all of our staff as well. Our Writers are not run-of-the-mill, but rather fully qualified and developed individuals who have received ample training over the years, enabling them to construct high quality pieces of industry-related material time and time again.

Our Editorial Team

These guys work hand in hand with our writers to ensure that every final piece of content has been proof-read, seeded thoroughly and is perfectly worded to be able to go on our clients’ websites. They undergo rigorous quality control processes to ensure that our high standards of excellence are always met. Every editor must also be a good writer. Therefore, there are no loopholes or chances for content to be below standard.

SEO Experts Team

In order to produce the very best contents for our clients, we make sure to employ experts in the field of SEO. They have gained the knowledge and experience required to be able to help you, our clients, to not only achieve a higher search engine ranking, but also maintain it as well.

They are specialists in: in-depth keyword research, split-testing similar pages, studying traffic and analytics, developing strong calls to action, analysing the client’s competitors, maximising local search exposure, WordPress or Joomla, creating effective ranking strategies, researching the latest SEO practices, working with writers and designers etc.

Administration Professionals

Expertly trained professionals handle the day to day running of the company. Without them, so much would not be possible.

At Daily Posts, we ensure that even down to our administrative staff, we offer only the best. They are IAAP certified professionals who know their jobs and do them to the best of their abilities, at all times.

Public and Media Relations Specialists Team

Aside from our service (that speaks for itself), our public image and reputation is what it is today, because the Public and Media Relations Team know their job and do it exceptionally well. They create and maintain co-operative, good-natured relationships with our clients, the media and the general public, increasing awareness of our services and showcasing our work and goals. They handle all Daily Posts’ communication with investors, consumers, news reporters, journalists and the public in general.

Our PMR Specialists are all fully-qualified in their field, highly organised and possess great writing and oratory skills, without which they would not be able to carry out their duties to such high standards.

IT Team

They are responsible for the successful running of the entirety of Daily Posts’ website, including our Virtual Office, which is where our Writers, Editors, and SEO experts all meet in order to create engaging content for our clients.

Infographics Team

The Daily Posts Way: Empowering our Workforce: Supporting our Writers

Daily Posts operates with full-time staff rather than freelancers. We are building ourselves as an employer of the future – today. Developing a culture that supports the ethos of the company and activities of our workforce is no mean feat. James Cummings, CEO, explains how we have achieved our success and some of the challenges that we have faced along the way.

If you run a writing agency, marketing agency or just use writers as part of your business, then you will probably be aware of the challenges that arise when you need to get content fast – or of great quality – or both. At Daily Posts, we work hard on our recruitment and have put in place policies, procedures, and processes to facilitate recruitment and the management of writing professionals.

First of all, let us take a look at some of the challenges that we face on a day-to-day basis in our writing agency. We will then take a look at how our mission is tied in with overcoming obstacles along the way.

Some freelancers just do not care

When you start talking to freelancers about their work, some are full of passion for what they do. They work hard and enjoy their work.

On the other side of the freelancer coin, there are those that really don’t care. All they want is to get paid for their work and do the absolute minimum . Sure, these people will spend most of their time looking for work rather than getting repeat work, but that is what they are used to, and how they feel this game works.

Weeding out those with passion from those that really do not care is pretty easy if you know how. The problem comes when you are in a hurry for work and need to use someone new. It can either go swimmingly well or you can end up with no communication until after the deadline, or terrible quality content that is not worth the digital space it takes up.

Things come up from time to time

Freelancers are generally in their role for one of two reasons. The first is that they love the flexibility of freelance work and are able to earn well. The second is that their personal life is such that they are perhaps not able to take a job that involves a commute and standard full-time hours.

There are great freelancers in both categories, but sometimes things come up that get in the way of each, perhaps more so for the latter category.When managing freelancers, you therefore have to prepare for all eventualities. This means ensuring you have an open and transparent relationship with them and keep the lines of communication open at all times. It’s important to know where you stand and are able to assign work elsewhere if need be.

You also  need to have a sweep-up team that can deal with any fall-outs. If you manage to get the work done when things go wrong, then you are on track to succeed in your business.

Learning and development

It can be incredibly difficult to train remote employees when dealing with the different types of content you need. The nuances of tone and style, linking and references, can take some getting used to.

At Daily Posts, we have a personal development plan and training system – enhanced by video tutorials and briefs – for all of our writers, whether full-time in-house or part-time freelancers. This enables us to ensure  staff are constantly being up-skilled at our expense, allowing them to feel they have a career route through the writing industry, even if they are only working a few hours each week.

I’ve heard many people say to me that investment in people is a waste of time, and that freelancers jump ship quicker than it takes for the money to hit their PayPal account after you have clicked ‘Send’.This is most certainly not the case with our teams. We have found that investment in human capital means  we get returns in terms of loyalty, performance and development. We have seen a real culture of teamwork evolve through the virtual office that we have in place and the practices that we have established.

Technology driven, staff controlled

At Daily Posts, we have developed an online virtual office to drive the processes that are required in the fast-paced challenging environment in which we operate. We have done so to provide our staff with more control, rather than less.

For example, if an issue arises with one of our writers, they can request work be reassigned to another member of staff. One click of a button and they can get on with their life, safe in the knowledge that they aren’t letting anyone down. If something minor comes up, then they can even request an extension, enabling them to keep on top of their work, without their stress levels escalating.

The flow of work from clients to writers, to editors, to quality control, and back to the clients is a cycle which is designed to create the best possible content within a budget.Our use of technology makes us more effective as a team and more happy, knowledgeable, skilled and creative as individuals.

Empowerment through creative communication

We really want to change the way that online writers see their work. Our mission is:

 To empower everyone we touch through creative communication

Empowerment in terms of our staff means giving them the environment, the tools and the workflow to achieve their goals.

For some, the goal is earning $50 a week. For others, it is building an online career, working from the comfort of their home and enjoying the stability of a monthly salary. Plenty of our employees are aiming higher, striving for a management role in Daily Posts.

The culture we have cultivated in our organisation is designed to enable work from home staff to feel part of the organisation. Our recruitment policy is geared towards finding people that will assimilate swiftly and seamlessly into a culture that values respect, professionalism, fun, attention to detail, teamwork, creativity and passion. The right people grow and flourish within our company and it is this that enables us to overcome the many challenges that the writing business throws up.

Empowerment through creative communication also relates to our relationship and engagement with each and every one of our clients, but that is a message for another day.

Our Philosophy

Our key philosophy is that any relationship we have with our clients must be win/win. We strive to develop content that can be placed on your site with pride, as well as content that will go on partner websites, magazines and wherever necessary, without having to be sold.

Our Philosophy

It is Thinking Ability That Creates Great Writers

We believe that good content sells itself; that the value of a quality piece is immeasurable.

There are many examples of companies in the UK and around the world who have had their brand explode onto the national and international stage just because of one quality idea. We are ideas people and we help get your business to where it needs to get to. Take a look at some of these content marketing WOWs if you are in doubt about the power of web marketing.

Whether you take a pure content production package or are looking for us to place your content as well, we will always give you 100%.  We will go the extra mile to ensure that you are happy, as we want you to come back again and again.

At Daily Posts, we are committed to professional development. We spend a lot of time understanding search engines and ensuring that we are up to date with the latest methodologies in the industry.

We invest our time wisely to get you the most interesting and powerful content that is achievable within your budget.

Our Philosophy

Many things, such as: Quality. Integrity. Timeliness. Flexibility. Experience. The whole spectrum that makes the ideal creative writing partner to help the client achieve their business objectives and keep moving forward.

  • Standing out – or rather, being outstanding in our work – is not just about pleasing the client. Winning is in our character and it shows in everything we do, all through the work processed to the final output.So, with every client, it’s a win/win relationship.
  • We provide fluid, informative and grammatically flawless content that helps you win and enhances your brand value in your target marketplace.

Quality Control and Google updates

Quality Control is at the heart of our work philosophy at Daily Posts. That’s why, using a proven and highly-effective hiring system, we employ some of the most talented and dedicated writers from across the globe and train them to be part of our quality-driven ethos.

Part of the training our copywriters regularly receive is about learning how to write for the latest Google search engines algorithms, such as PageRank, HummingBird and RankBrain.

At Daily Posts, we devote valuable time to studying the major search engines, including Bing and Yahoo, ensuring we always have up-to-the-minute updates on the newest technologies in the industry.   Our writers receive continuous professional development, so they can produce great copy for our clients.

This ensures that when we produce copy, you don’t just receive quality, creative content that instantly grabs attention; you also get strategically crafted writing that is keyword/language-appropriate, with good latent semantic keyword focus.

With this, contents have a great chance of ranking high on Google, Bing or Yahoo, all the while driving organic traffic and boosting visitor conversion rates.

Virtual Office

The Importance of the Brief Cannot be Overstated

We believe that it is nigh on impossible to get the content just right for you without a decent brief. That doesn’t mean that you need to write 1000 words every time, but writers must have enough guidance to get the job done.


The first step in adding a brief


You Decide the type of content you want to brief


Blog brief form


Landing Page Brief Form


Guest Post Form

We have therefore developed 13 separate briefing forms, so that you can use one that is appropriate to the content you require. Our writers are trained on interpreting briefs within this framework and are adept at delivering content that hits the mark, meaning less rejected content. Our clients have found that this makes a tremendous difference to the quality of the final product.

Training, Specialists and Personal Development


Daily Posts Training Room

We invest in our people and ensure that they feel part of our company, even if some of them are on the other side of the world. Every writer has a personal development plan and a personal training area online, fed by our editors and training team. We train writers on niche content types, like press releases and landing pages, to ensure that they understand the nuances of each type of content. We help them to grow with our company, so they can work towards team leadership and management roles. They are able to chat in the online office and learn from each other. We have built an online corporate culture that brings the best out of people.

We also ensure that writers cover the topics and content types they are comfortable with. Our self-serve model means that they only claim tasks that they are trained to do and are at ease with. This means you will get content from writers who are interested in and knowledgeable about your topics.

Deadlines Smashed

At Daily Posts, we strive to ensure that content is back in hours rather than days. We have people working round the clock, around the world, delivering intelligently researched copy that hits the spot. When you submit your work for completion, you set a deadline. Our systems then assign a writer deadline, leaving time for editing and proofreading. All of our staff are salaried, which means that they are more reliable than the average freelancer.

If you are looking for great value content, then try Daily Posts. We will not be beaten on price. If you don’t approve of the content we send you, you are entitled to a full refund.

Latent Semantic Index

Keyword targeting involves producing content that includes keywords in order to attract visitors via search engines, social media and other keyword-driven platforms. If a keyword is not featured on a website, it is unlikely that a visitor searching for that particular keyword will ever find the website.

By using keywords intelligently in content, it is possible to rank highly in the search engines. There are many other factors involved, such as the link profile of the website, social signals and the make-up of the content. However, the presence of keywords  and synonyms is of major importance.

By producing keyword-relevant content that is written for the reader, we are able to attract visitors who seek your products and services. For example, if you’re selling blue cars, we might write an article focused on the “best blue cars” available on the market. We may well emphasise the keywords “blue cars” once or twice in that article. The search engines will ‘understand’ that the page is relevant to blue cars and so will be more likely to rank the page for that keyword. Our titles and descriptions will grab the attention of search engine browsers and build interest. The content will build the desire and encourage an action (where appropriate). Web copy, Feature articles, Guest Posts and all forms of content vary in the way they interpret and utilise SEO best practice. Content has different purposes.

Keyword targeting is particularly powerful when you have pinpointed long tail key phrases. Some phrases are not hugely popular, but can be profitable. By focusing on these, as well as the more popular keywords, it’s possible to gain some quick wins and attract some speedy traffic to convert to sales.

Regular Content

Great Regular Content; Produced by Masters

The benefits of fresh content are manifold. One of the biggest is that regular content posted to your site will alert search engines to see that it is ‘live’. The search engines will award a positive mark for this measure of importance. They will recognise that your business is growing, flourishing and ‘real’ and rank your pages more favourably as a result.

If you run a news website and  don’t have content posted regularly, you will soon slip down the search engines. Google will not rank you based on aged content.

In addition to these inherent benefits of ‘fresh content’, you will be able to target new keywords and attract more targeted visitors direct from the articles or pages.

Daily, Weekly Or Monthly Content Made Easy

Are you struggling to produce regular, fresh content? If so, it might be time to give Daily Posts a try. We understand that each website has a specific target audience and will require content capable of appealing to them, which is why we match your desired needs to writers who best suit the job.

Our content is fresh and well-written by expert writers. It is proofread and formatted by expert editors who pay great attention to detail to ensure the content delivered provides the right tone for your website.

Contact us on (UK) 02380 970 979 or (US) (646) 679-7971 and we’ll provide a free quote for our services and can organise a free content trial should you wish.

More Than Just Words

Your website might have a design that’s guaranteed to ‘Wow!’ Customers, but if it isn’t capable of producing content that is worth their time, then you’re not really going to get anywhere. Let us take your website to the next level by producing compelling, regular content. It’s our job to ensure that whatever content we produce -be it informative, entertaining, persuasive or educative – is guaranteed to build the credibility and exposure of your business.

Content For Higher Search Engine Rankings

As a quality writing company, we are familiar with the fact that Google constantly updates it search Algorithms, so it doesn’t give the top spot away to just anyone. Therefore, we employ writers who bring a wealth of knowledge and a high level of competency. We then train them to structure their content and focus on keyword themes. We improve your on-page SEO and attract more organic traffic to your website.

Daily Posts can deliver:

  •        Headline Titles that Stand Out
  •        Relevant Keywords to Improve SEO

Search Engine Friendly

Many business owners now understand that they need to churn out content to help their websites rank higher. The content produced has to be deemed good enough by the major search engines, particularly Google, if they are to be visible to their customers.


Content That Google Loves: We are in the golden age of the internet  and everyone wants a slice of that magnificent pie. There are many commercial opportunities to be found on the internet, whether you are an offline business with an online presence or solely an online one.

Understanding SEO

You might have heard the term ‘SEO’ mentioned amongst digital marketers. According to Moz, SEO (or Search Engine Optimisation) refers to the practice of enhancing the quality and quantity of traffic to a website via organic search results. This does not include pay per click and other paid-for means of driving traffic to your website.

Understanding SEO is important for anyone who wants to create content that is search engine friendly. Optimising content for search engines is not solely about the quantity of traffic you want to attract, but the quality of traffic. It doesn’t make much sense to attract visitors who are looking to buy Apple branded laptops when what you need is those looking for an apple of the fruit variety.

There are many other factors involved in optimising content for search engines. Guidelines are often provided by Google to help webmasters, copywriters and digital marketers understand them. In 2015, Google released a full version of their Search Quality Rating Guidelines – a 160-page document, filled with fantastic SEO knowledge. Though that provided precious insight for SEO experts into what makes Google favour some pages and frown upon others, the main source of SEO insight is Google updates.

Google Updates

Google rolls out hundreds of updates each year, with the majority of those being minor ones. However, it is the major updates that get people within the SEO community talking. Occasionally, Google will roll out new major updates. Often however, updates are tweaks and data refreshes of previous updates. For example, the Penguin update was released for the first time in 2012, but there have been multiple updates since then. While some of those updates were confirmed and explained by Google, others were not, leaving webmasters to figure it out for themselves. Whatever the case, webmasters and SEO experts always learn and improve on their approach to SEO.

Some of the most popular updates in recent years include the well-known mobile update dubbed ‘Mobilegeddon’, Panda and Penguin. While the mobile update was focused on improving mobile search results for mobile users by penalising sites that were not mobile-friendly, Panda was released to deal with content farms that produced thin content, while packing on ads. Meanwhile, Penguin was released to adjust a good number of spam factors, not excluding keyword stuffing.

While each of those updates may sound different from the other, they are all the same in light of what Google hoped to achieve by rolling them out. It is the same reason why we see so many updates – to provide the user with the best possible answers to their query. Google is interested in putting the right kind of content in front of searchers. When a user is searching for information, they should be able to find top quality information from authority sources. When another user is in need of a service, they should be able to find providers of that service close to them.

When you understand the motive behind the moves the search engine makes, it becomes easier to see why they would penalise a website for having too many ads above the fold or a keyword density that is ridiculously high. Unfortunately, many website owners and businesses don’t understand the rules. It can be difficult to keep up with all of them to avoid getting penalised, while also trying to employ the best SEO techniques and keeping the quality of your content high.

Many opt for hiring professional copywriters instead of dealing with the content themselves.  That way, they know their content will be in good hands. The writers at Daily Posts understand what it takes to produce copy that wins with search engines. Set up your account today and let us help create content that will drive traffic to your website.

35 Killer Tips to Make Your Press Releases Powerful

The press release is still as relevant and powerful in this age of social media as it was when we only relied on the traditional media to get information.

Among other essential qualities, a killer press release must be punchy and compelling and provide important and newsy details about your product release, event announcement, or other information about your business or organisation that may be of interest to the journalist or the public.

But what’s the ideal length of a press release? And what kind of information should you include? Here are 35 powerful tips to help you get started:

  1. Make sure your story is newsworthy

Before you even try to write a press release, ask yourself what are the kinds of stories you like to read, watch and listen to in the media. Generally, people are interested in stories that stir their curiosity, about things they haven’t heard before, or that surprises them, or that could help solve their problem.

So, do you think your story is newsworthy? Here are elements in your story to help you determine that:

  • Is there anything “new” in the story?
  • Is there anything unusual or unexpected about it?
  • Outside of the company or organisation, would the story be of interest to others?
  • Will anyone really care?

The last point sound especially harsh, but is probably the most important factor to consider when writing a press release. Your company’s product launch or upcoming event may excite you, but does it interest anyone else? If you’re not absolutely sure about that, put a hold on the story until you’ve got a better one.

  1. Craft a hook

Recall that time when you had a song stuck in your head and you just can’t shake a chorus or beat in it? That’s how a great hook feels.

Just as in pop music, a great hook is central to writing a killer press release. A great hook will help you tell a remarkable story. It will engage the curiosity of your readers and move them to want to find out more.

But how do you find an interesting hook to your story?

Do a research on other press releases and blog posts by your competitors that got significant press coverage. Study the hooks in the story that caught the interest of the media and the public, and utilize those successes as a guideline to craft your own killer press release.

Also, remember to keep an eye on the content type and style your audience is reacting to and/or sharing.

  1. Be different

You must be aware that journalists are swamped with press releases from different companies and organisations who want media coverage for their event or new product. Except your company is an Apple, Google or Microsoft, journalists will always be choosy about which press release to publish.

To get noticed, you have to be different with a good story angle that’s relevant and topical. Anything else would look like a distraction to the journalist.

  1. Write a killer headline

The headline is the first thing that is scanned; and so is your first opportunity to catch interest. Most journalists’ emails boxes are bulging with emails every day, so a good idea to get quickly noticed is to label your press release email appropriately with a “press release” or “story idea” tag. Your subject line must also be striking.

But don’t embellish an empty story or try to be clever. A trained journalist will see through the chaff in seconds and will ignore your email if he doesn’t understand it or find anything interesting about it.

  1. Be concise

If you are able to grab a journalist’s attention with a striking headline, he’ll move on to the first paragraph to get more convinced. You’ll only get a journalist to read entire content and likely use your story if it scales this hurdle.

Journalists don’t have a lot of time, and make quick decisions about the newsworthiness of a story based on the headlines and the first paragraph. He is trained to quickly scan for the what, who, where, when, why and how in a potential story. Therefore, as much as you can, briefly provide the answers to these questions in your first paragraph. You can then give details in the body of the story.

  1. Keep it short & simple

Don’t forget the KISS (keep it short & simple) principle always works and sustains the reader’s interest. Don’t waffle. Use bullet points where necessary to summarise factual information or statistics without taking up valuable space.

  1. Ensure your story relevant and current

Make sure the content of your press release is in the area of interest of the journalist. Do your research on the previous stories and blogs published by the journalist, and ask yourself if your press release will fit in and interest the readers. Ask yourself too if your story is relevant and current.

  1. Break your news up

At no time in history has the reader’s attention span been as short as in this social media age. The average news reader doesn’t have so much time on his hand and has so much information to digest.

So, make it easy for him to scan and grab the juice of the story as quickly as possible. Don’t make your story a monotonous whole. Break it up and make it breath with punchy and direct sub-headers, bullet points, big data et cetera.

  1. Keep your goal in mind

Remember the press release is targeted at your primary audience or product consumer; and not crafted to make the company CEO or VPs happy. Go straight for the major issues and leave out unnecessary details about the business or agency that no reporter or reading public is actually interested in.

Your goal with every press release is to whet the reporter’s appetite that he’ll want to immediately call back for more information and can’t wait to publish the full story.

  1. Make it grammatically flawless

Make your story read compellingly and flawlessly before sending it out. Proofread well and make sure there are no grammatically mistakes that’ll keep a journalist from taking you seriously.

  1. Include hard facts and figures

It’s great to make your story read flawlessly and in an engaging way. But never lose sight of the fact that a press release is essentially a tool to inform the public about an important event or product news from your company and put the organisation in a good light.

So, don’t just give a creative, colourful narrative; add hard facts and figures to quantify your arguments or emphasize the points you’ve made in the story.

  1. Include quotes whenever possible

Quotes are essential in press release to add an element of order and authenticity.

  1. Aim for one page— plus half page at the maximum

Good writing eliminates waffles and is no shorter than it should be. In fact, the more concise the story is, the better. An ideal press release should be confined to a single page, maybe slightly spilled over to the next page. But don’t make it longer than a page and half.

Knowing that you have limited space to write your story with facts and a persuasive quality should help you create a punchy, newsy press release that journalists love.

  1. Avoid jargon and buzzwords

Press releases are different from internal memos and company newsletters in which you could get away with technical buzzwords and industry jargon.

While members of your professional group or company staff may understand what you mean or are getting at, jargon and buzzwords may confuse the reading public and make them lose interest in your message. Where necessary, replace with simple, more relatable terms for the public.

  1. Avoid acronyms

Acronyms and abbreviations are another way to jargonize your content, because you assume the target audience knows what the shortened terms mean. Sometimes, people just use them so they can come off as technically sound and clever, without realising they’re actually communicating the opposite.

  1. Tell a story

Your press release should tell a story. That’s what people want to hear – a story that affects them and promise a solution to their problems.

  1. Create an argument

If you can’t tell an interesting story, at least create a compelling argument in your press release. Using the Pyramid principle of storytelling, state a problem that the readers can relate to, and explain how your company’s product or service can solve it.

  1. Aim for clarity

Is your story plain and lucid with all the important facts, figures and information? Here’s a good way to check. Give your completed press release to someone who doesn’t work at your company to read without giving the person a hint about what the story is about. Then ask the person what he thinks the story is about. That will give you a clue about whether your story has clarity or needs a little rework.

  1. Don’t try to be too smart

You could instantly put off readers straight from the headline if you try to sound too clever with it. If you’re in doubt, tone it down a little bit.

  1. Create a sense of place

A good press release should not just provide information on “what,” “who,” “when” and “how” of the story. It should also tell “where.” Give the readers a sense of a real place where the story happened to ground it and add credibility. And the story doesn’t always have to take place in a corporate setting.

  1. Let the news reveal personality

Just as giving the readers a clear sense of “where” in the story make sure to also make sure the answers to the “who,” as well as other key elements in the story, are unambiguous. Capturing a sense of real people gives the story more credibility and authenticity.

Let your press release reveal specific personalities in the story and tell the reader who the actors are, what they are like, how they talk, and so forth – in as few words as you can. Just doing this can help animate your whole press release.

  1. Express your client’s tone of voice

Your client should have an identifiable, likable voice in the market. Make sure it comes through in the story or create one, if they don’t have.

  1. Use everyday words and phrases

Write like you would speak or explain to an intelligent friend. Avoid tedious, formal, corporate-speak that sounds like a legal document or an insurance contract.

  1. Be direct

The active voice is always punchier and more direct when communicating a message.

  1. Box out the key points

More than 50% of your target readers will ignore your press release. Improve your chances of being read by boxing out the key ideas in short bullet points.

  1. Don’t go round in circles

Avoid over-qualifying sentences and beating around the bush. Be concise. Be more assertive.

  1. Don’t make up quotes

Some readers can see through it and it could make your story look turgid and lose credibility.

  1. Avoid quoting the usual suspects

It is vital that the quote is by someone that is central to the product or event in the story, and this doesn’t always have to be the usual suspects ––the VPs and the CEOs.

  1. Use real interviews

Real interviews with key people is one of the most important elements to give the story more authenticity.

  1. Don’t sound sales-y

Aim at getting your story out there; and cut out words that may sound sales-y or like an advertisement.

  1. Provide resources

Add videos, photos, links and other important resources a reporter may need for further information to fully report the news.

  1. Include your contact information

Make sure to provide a contact person with an email and phone that can provide any important details for the reporter when contacted.

  1. Round off with bang

Put in the same level of creativity and thought into your last sentence as you did in crafting a killer headline and a compelling first few paragraphs.

  1. Use a spell checker

It’s human to sometimes make mistakes. Use spell checkers to correct typos.

  1. Check facts

You certainly don’t want to see misspelling errors in names and titles in your published press release. So, check and check again.

A well written constructed press release can be an effective public relations tool and help a business or organization tell a story, report new, or help a cause.  To get the right and good press coverage for your company or agency, an effective press release writing skill is a must.

Many people start with a vision to continuously write, but other priorities come in to steal their time, which results in them barely ever updating their blog. Its time to outsource your content if this is you.

Without regular blog posts, traffic is likely to be lost and ranking in search engines will diminish.

When you outsource and focus on other important areas of your business, you are sure to generate leads that will be converted to clients.

If you keep sending E-mails with little or no response, hiring one of our professional copywriters is the best way to help you get the response you deserve.

Copywriting is about research, understanding content purpose, experience and consistently coming up with great content.

How to Find a Copywriting Company

If you have decided to outsource your copywriting, the next stage is to decide how to go about it and what kind of writing you need. You can either hire a freelancer or you can use the services of a dedicated writing agency, such as us here at Daily Posts.

There are pros and cons of writing agencies and freelancers.

If you don’t mind having only one person attend to your copywriting needs, then opt for a freelancer. However, you should bear in mind that freelancers only work for you when they are not busy with other clients. In addition, freelancers are the editors, proofreaders, researchers and strategist rolled into one. The upside is that some freelancers charge slightly lower than writing agencies, but, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

At Daily Posts, we have more than enough employees assigned to specific tasks and subject areas to cater for your needs.

Daily Posts Going Global

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Daily Posts Going Global: Daily Posts, an innovative new content marketing company writing out of Southampton is moving to the global stage. After many years of operating almost solely through word-of-mouth channels the company is expanding; and expanding fast. To facilitate their business evolution, nay revolution, Daily Posts have launched a website with some pretty neat features.

Southampton, England, December 2013 – the new Daily Posts website is up and running. It has been launched to attract interest from large marketing agencies and big brands. Clients can order their content online, and pop through their specifications within the order process. Account managers are at hand to ensure that the experienced writers in the Southampton office have all of the information they need to do a great job.

The website describes in detail the services delivered by this UK company. Clients can order guest posts, blog posts, press releases, product descriptions, magazine articles, website copy and just about “anything content”. In addition, Daily Posts provides the opportunity for their preferred clients to outsource the whole of the content marketing process. With links developed over the last decade numbering their tens of thousands, the teams at Daily Posts have endless streams of friendly webmasters willing to host their top quality content.

So why is the company expanding?

Cummings, the founder, explains “over the years we have done extremely well through freelance platforms and word-of-mouth local business. Our processes are slick. Many of our clients have been asking us why we are not growing faster, and the answer unfortunately was that we weren’t really trying. We decided to gear up for a massive push in 2014, and so we’ve invested five figures in the terrific website now up at www.dailyposts.co.uk, have instigated a massive recruitment campaign, and have a few more innovations on the way”

The website is indeed awesome. The look is clear, fresh and enticing. The order process is smooth and transparent. The overall user experience on the site is very comfortable. The range of products is vast. It provides a simple one stop shop solution for every content marketing requirement.

Paul Bragg, the new Marketing Director in the Southampton Office, states that, “the company has always operated in a word of mouth bubble. Our skill set is therefore huge, and we have developed a quality focus rarely seen in an industry where quantity is often synonymous with poor quality. We are ideally positioned to ride the content marketing wave and deliver massive success to hundreds of companies in 2014.”

Perhaps the most surprising thing about Daily Posts is the price. In an industry where the average UK writer charges over £150 for a press release, Daily Posts advertise releases at just £39.95. A 1000+ word high quality guest post costs just £29.95. Cummings says, “We recruit the brightest and the best. Where a piece of content takes other agencies a full day, we get it done in a couple of hours.  We firmly believe that we offer the best value content production business in the UK, if not the World.”

The company expansion plans are not limited to the new website. “We are going to be expanding from 12 to 35 staff over the course of 2014,” said Cummings. “Our capacity is going to go from around 2.5 million words per month to upwards of 7 million. In 2015 we will go past 60 staff. Our strategic focus over the last quarter has been on refining our processes, and sourcing the best people to craft amazing content for the upsurge in business that we are taking on. We are poised for an incredible journey”.

There are also plans in the pipeline to launch an off the shelf guest post content service. The lofty ambition is to have a catalogue of 2500 top quality 1000 word+ posts available for purchase on the site. This will be a welcome resource for companies who want to search for content, read a summary, pay and download. Cummings affirms, “the off the shelf guest post service will be live in the second quarter of 2014. We have around a quarter of the catalogue produced so far. We are really excited about that division of the business.”

Daily Posts are not your run of the mill company. They are building a huge business off the back of their quality focus. Watch out for discounts over the coming month. Clients are going to be able to get up to 50% off of the standard rates on the website. “Let’s get working together”, said Cummings with a smile.
