Press Release Approval Process | How to Create and Approve in Time?

2. PR Personnel Lays Down the Points

The P.R.O. public relations officer who represents the company will lay down the important points. They are professionals who are assigned to create a positive outlook for the firm and they are usually good at choosing the right points to announce while keeping some others as a backup or to avoid controversy.

3. Content Creation

The PR writer or a content writer in the marketing team will be assigned the job. They have to write down a press release which conveys the exact message but in a more professional tone with some interesting choice of words to make it appealing to a wider audience. The announcement will eventually be converted into the news by the media and should have all the essential information so that they can report it properly.

4. Content Editing and Initial Approval

The press release approval process begins at this point where the content created by the writer will be reviewed by the editor and the digital marketing head. After making some changes, it will usually be forwarded to the vice president, CEO or executive communications head, whoever is in charge of the PR release in the organization.

5. Final Approval

The top management executives are responsible for approving the final product. However, it often takes a lot of time as the document will be sent back and forth from the marketing team to executives to make changes. A lack of communication could lead to increased time delays and may not allow the announcement to be made in time.
