Sending Press Releases To Hellmail
Sending Press Releases To Hellmail
Press releases can drive sales and few match Hellmail for coverage. We try to include all press releases sent to us, and as many as we can. There is no charge for this. We also very much welcome articles by industry professionals from anywhere in the world.
If you have a product or service related to the post, parcel, direct mail, marketing, packaging, logistics, mobile phone, internet or cable industries and have never worked with Hellmail before or would like us to include or showcase your product or news item , please contact our editor via the link on this page. He will be happy to provide any support you may require.
Please make it clear that you wish the item to be published and preferably the name of the writer
We particularly welcome thought-provoking or insightful articles by industry practitioners but suggest that where possible they be kept light and informative in keeping with Hellmail's style. Not everyone understands industry jargon and Hellmail content is read by a wide variety of people both in and outside the industry - please bear this in mind. If you're really struggling, send as much information as you can via email and we may be able to ask one of our staff writers to cover it for you. We will sometimes source a suitable image where we feel one is needed for impact but you are welcome to include one.
Our statistics make it abundantly clear that articles written in a more 'humanistic' style receive the most reads and are often emailed to other people. Remember, you only have a few seconds to capture the readers attention so the more 'loose' the article is in style, the greater the likelihood that it will be picked up and read many, many times...
The editor reserves the right to make minor changes (where required) to ensure articles are newsworthy or else fit into the general output of Hellmail Postal News but many of our regular writers have their own login and post articles themselves.
Our readers include (but are not limited to): postal operators, postal advisory experts and consultants, private mail operators, postal regulators, couriers, parcel carriers, politicians, customers, equipment manufacturers, postroom managers, industry bodies, postal equipment suppliers, newspaper editors, buyers, the general public.

Help With Press Releases
If you are new to writing press releases, please bear in mind the following. A press release should contain:.
-A strong or compelling e-mail subject header and headline.
-A first paragraph should include the five W's: Who, What, Where, When and Why.
-Electronic contact information including an e-mail address for the press contact and Web site address of the company. Make sure that in addition to e-mail contact information a phone number for the press contact is listed.
-Any key clients or endorsement from a 'non-biased' source like a university professor or reviewer. You should have permission from those sources to use their remarks in your press release.
-A short paragraph at the end of the release containing background information about the company. This might include a synopsis of the activities of the company, how long they have been in business, and any area of expertise. If the press release is about a book or similar, then cover career high-points.
