Video Tutorial: How to Post an Announcement or Press Release on Patch

This nifty video tutorial shows users of any Patch site how to post an announcement, including full press releases, by using the tools available to all users on the Patch

We get new readers scanning our site each day. So we thought it would be great to reintroduce you to our Announcements section.

The best part of posting an Announcement is the results you'll get. The Announcement not only goes on the Patch site, it automatically appears in our popular Morning Newsletter, which is sent to more than 2,000 dedicated readers each morning.

Have you ever sent a press release to the editor of your Patch site and wondered when it was going to post? You don't need to worry about that at Sarasota Patch. You can even add photos!

Perhaps it was a birth announcement or the passing of a loved one (which are published free on Patch sites) or School Award. You wondered if it was to be published.

Well, our Patch sites are designed in a way that is easy for users to post their own Announcement without having to wait for the editor to post it for you.

It really is the best way to post your Announcement or press release if you are a nonprofit agency, for-profit agency, government body or other group to get your stuff on the Patch, instantly.

Follow this video tutorial to see how to do this, step by step. After you finish watching the video, consider using these techniques in the video to post on the Patch.

Email the editor at leigh.armstrong@patch.com to ask the announcement to be featured on the homepage after you post.
