4 Press Release Samples for a Product Launch

Home » PR Fuel » 4 Press Release Samples for a Product Launch

Press releases are published, on average, between 500 and 1,000 times per day on newswire services. Most of the time, local and national outlets will simply ignore most of these releases. So, for yours to gain coverage, it needs to tick all the boxes. Writing a great press release can be complicated though, and most media professionals start out bypress release samplesusing press release samples.

They can help you learn ways to navigate media landscapes and get people’s attention. Without that, people may not know your product even exists.

And with experience, you can create press releases that stand out from the crowd and help you make headlines. Keep reading to learn more about how to write a good press release and how much it can do for your company!

1. Use Statistics to Show Your Product’s Value

One of the most effective strategies when it comes to advertising your product is to sell it with statistics. Your press release should capture reporters’ attention by leading with fascinating statistics they can tie into a story. Don’t be surprised if your lead becomes their lead!

For example, Value Penguin recently sent out a press release on the number of people who put children in car seats. The subject line read, “1 in 5 Americans Don’t Put Kids in Car Seats – And It’s Really Risky.” This is a perfect strategy for many reasons.

First, it naturally captures the reader’s attention. They are immediately invested in learning more since it is about children’s safety. Plus, the number of parents who don’t use car seats is unexpectedly staggering!

The subject line also invites reporters to ask questions about the data. Why are so many parents forgoing such a basic safety component, and what can be done? Then, they naturally link to the report, which includes an online press release.

And in that online press release are strategic funnels to lead reporters and audiences to the real product — insurance. The roads are dangerous with so many children out of car seats, so audiences should make sure to protect themselves!

2. If You See a Need, Address It

One thing companies love to do is tie their products in with popular topics and headlines. Right now, travel headlines are grabbing people’s attention as tourists wonder if they can go on vacation. They are worried about COVID-19 restrictions, and their overall safety.

One company, Scott’s Cheap Flights, prepared a press release exactly about these concerns. The subject line was captivating, telling reporters and audiences exactly what they wanted to hear. It was “Some good travel news for a change.”

The press release saw people needed assurance that they would have the chance to go on vacation soon. They also saw reporters were struggling to find information about traveling. That kind of information is not usually available during the winter.

With a shortage of sources for information, the company could naturally attract reporters. Then, they could drive reporters to their surveys and therefore, their products. And as a result of the stories they produce, reporters would naturally lead people to Scott’s Cheap Flights.

3. Give Reporters A Chance To Interview Leaders

A new app recently launched that looks to fill a need that many people may not realize exists. Many times, reporters struggle to find experts qualified to speak on a topic they’re covering. Experts may not make themselves available, or too few people may know enough about the subject.

So, a company launched SKILLR. The app is meant to connect people with leading experts who can provide information on a range of topics. But that’s not the interesting part.

The interesting part is the way they approached their release about the product launch. An app meant to be used by reporters needs a press release that also attracts reporters’ attention. And for that, they offered what the press always wants — an interview.

The subject led with an invitation for reporters to interview the CEO of the company. If their product launch wasn’t enough to attract news stories, a guaranteed interview with the CEO definitely would have. And it really doesn’t take much time out of their day.

The Advantages of Going on Camera

An interview can take up to 10 minutes, and they’re advantageous for companies. During an interview, business leaders can make sure the best information about their product is front and center in a story. They can also identify and address any concerns with a product quickly.

Speaking with the press also boosts the company’s brand, since it shows there are people behind it. A brand is only as good as the people who work on it. And by speaking with reporters, customers can develop a kind of parasocial relationship with business leaders.

It will make them more comfortable, and even excited, to download their app.

4. If You Don’t See Good News, Make It

For many months, Hobby Lobby’s brand was damaged by its decision to underpay employees and abuse their schedules. The company faced stories of its overbearing policies and unreasonable work conditions. It was hurting sales and costing them profit.

So, they reversed course and instead of waiting for things to change, they took action. They sent out a press release in mid-2020 that announced changes. And in that press release, they directly addressed one of the biggest criticisms they faced: employee pay.

They wrote that employees would suddenly be making more than double the federal minimum wage at its stores. This was exciting for the employees, but even more exciting for the business leaders. Suddenly, instead of headlines about the company’s labor violations, they saw headlines that put them in a positive light.

In theory, the headlines may have come weeks after deciding to raise the pay. But writing a press release that directly addressed existing issues sped up the process. The company did not have to wait for its brand to recover, a decent press release did it practically overnight.

And they had a chance to pair the press release with announcements of new products, which naturally drove up sales.

New Product Launch Press Release Examples

Example #1: Announcing three new construction products

Crescent Lufkin Levels Up With A New Product Launch

Tool manufacturer’s new products strike the perfect balance between performance and practicality.

SPARKS, Md,, April 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Crescent Lufkin has launched three new, jobsite-ready, construction levels.

The Crescent Lufkin Pocket Level, Specialty Angle Pocket Level, and Billet Torpedo Level are specially-designed to solve user pain points associated with traditional levels.

The Crescent Lufkin Pocket Level, Specialty Angle Pocket Level, and Billet Torpedo Level are specially-designed to solve user pain points associated with traditional levels.
“Mechanical tradespeople and MRO users have unique needs that most levels don’t address,” said Kasandra Wilcox, Associate Product Manager. “They want levels they can read easily, even in low light conditions. They’re often working in cramped spaces, so they need levels that are compact, easy to carry, and use. And of course, durability is key in harsh industrial applications. Our new Crescent Lufkin Tradesman Levels deliver in all these areas.”

In addition to the superior legibility, compact size, and exceptional durability common to all three products, each has features that set it apart from the competition. The Specialty Angle Pocket Level, for example, has an enlarged indexing vial with indents that precisely set the vial housing to angles commonly used by multiple trades.

All three new levels also feature firmly embedded rare earth magnets, so they hold securely onto metal surfaces. Together with their numerous other superior features, these new Crescent Lufkin products are poised to become the new standard for compact levels.

Example #3: New service launch to help special needs children

Jacobs Develops a New Service to Improve Home-to-School Travel Experience for Special Education Needs Children and Young People

Travel Service Optimization to help transform transport for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities children

DALLAS, Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Jacobs (NYSE:J) has developed Travel Service Optimization to transform the home-to-school travel experience for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) children and young people – helping to advance social inclusion, while also supporting broader environmental and economic benefits. Travel Service Optimization combines Jacobs’ transport planning capability with a new proprietary software system to shape and support travel strategy and planning on a continual basis.

In England, where Travel Service Optimization has been developed, councils and local government spend more than $1 billion (£800 million) a year providing statutory transport for SEND children and young people. With the size of this population growing, transport budgets tightening, the quality and quantity of bus and taxicab supply shrinking, Jacobs recognized an important need to improve the home-to-school travel experience for these children and young people.

Travel Service Optimization differs from traditional transport planning solutions by digitally clustering travel groups for more appropriate ride sharing within those groups, rather than focusing on vehicles. It is a socially inclusive service that better considers the needs of each child or young person with special educational needs. It helps heads of travel who want to improve the individual’s travel experience, while using their limited budgets in smarter ways by increasing travel efficiency and effectiveness of procurement and potentially reducing transportation carbon emissions in some cases.

“The development of Travel Service Optimization is a great example of our people looking beyond to raise the bar and deliver tangible ways to increase the quality and social inclusivity of journeys to school for children and young people with special educational needs,” said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Senior Vice President Europe and Digital Strategies Donald Morrison. “We are launching Travel Service Optimization in the U.K. initially to enable authorities to transport more children safely, with a travel experience more closely aligned to their individual needs, all within budgetary constraints. We see real potential for this to have global application and benefit children and transport planning teams around the world.”

Jacobs created Travel Service Optimization by working with local authorities in England, parents, caregivers, schools and operators to create a travel planning service that streamlines processes, giving children with special educational needs a chance to enjoy the life benefits of shared travel inclusivity.
