Want to improve your press releases?

Try Press Release Grader.

This simple (and free) site will test your press release and give you tips on how to improve it.

I submitted a friend’s press release and it got a score of 72 out of 100. Press Release Grader then showed how to improve the grade by doing such things as moving the URL from deep in the release to higher in the release. It also checked for Mickey Mouse kind of mistakes as well, such as contact information and phone numbers.

If you’re looking to get an extra edge, check out this cool tool!

Thanks to PR whiz Nancy Juetten for pointing me to this cool tool!

The company that does this also has a product called "Twitter Grader." I’m a measly 69 percentile. My buddy Joan Stewart, the Publicity Hound is an astounding 99.2 percentile! That’s hot. Get your own grade at www.twittergrader.com
