hey guys! so Im trying to write a press release indicating I am now open for business. I actually have been for a while, but no one seems to know. I work from home so I dont want it to seem as if people will pass by my business like other businesses. Can anyone help me with a title and content? Has anyone else written a press release before? any help would be great, Ive been sitting here for quite some time trying to figure this out!

This may help.....
These words should appear at the top left of the page, in upper case. If you don't want the story to be made public yet, write "HOLD FOR RELEASE UNTIL ...." instead.
Just like a headline in an newspaper. Make sure this describes the content of the story.
City, State/Country - Month Day, Year These details precede the story and orient the reader.
Body This is where the actual story goes. There should be more than one paragraph, each paragraph no more than a few sentences. if there is more than one page, write "-more-" at the bottom of the page.
Company/organisation info Include any background information about the company or organisation featuring in this press release.
Contact Information Include contact person, company name, phone/fax, email, physical/postal address.
ENDS or ### This indicates the end of the press release.
(xxx words) If you like you could include the total number of words contained in the press release.
