How to create a press release

In order to create a new press release, select your newsroom under Newsroom and then click Create press release:

newsroom create press release-1

Then, you can choose how to start working on your press release:

  • Start from scratch and write your press release with Prowly's Creator.
  • Upload a DOCX file which you'll be able to adjust in the Creator.
  • Select one of our predefined templates as your starting point. 

No matter which option you choose, you’ll still be able to modify and add new text in Prowly’s Press Release Creator before you hit Publish

At the top of the menu, you've got a Preview option that helps to check what a press release will look like after publishing, as well as a Save button:
