The ability to engage a reader and make points concisely is vital when writing PR pieces and starting with a blank page can be daunting. If you would like to understand how to produce stronger drafts for your technology company, please feel free to continue reading.
With any PR work, planning what you are going to produce is essential. You need to establish from the offset exactly who the piece is for, what you are looking to achieve and narrow down exactly how you are going to achieve success. Good writing means finding the balance between form and content, structure and style, understanding your audience and tailoring written content to suit them.
Choose your words carefully
When writing a technology PR piece, it is very important to ensure you convey your main point quickly and clearly to keep your audience interested. While using engaging, interesting language, write brief, clear and straightforward sentences that clearly show your intentions. Be confident enough with your content to say things simply and clearly, rather than resort to flowery language.
Simple is better
As we have already touched upon briefly, less is more in PR business, so it is important to clearly show your intentions with the piece without boring your readers. For example, when writing a blog post or article, it is important to use short paragraphs, bullet points and subheadings which will make it easier for the audience to be engaged with the content and actually take something from it.
The overall purpose of the content is to ensure your audience receives the message you intend them to, so just make this incredibly clear. This type of writing strategy will save you a lot of time and make the pitches much more effective.
When reading back through your content, ensure that it makes sense and conveys the message you are looking to get across. One excellent way of doing this is to read the content aloud, which is guaranteed to highlight what phrasing is work and what isn’t. Good writing is as much about how it sounds as it is about putting words on a page. If you do not want to read the content aloud, you can use online proofreading services which are easy and highly efficient solutions.
