PressDart conducts a thorough review of your press releases prior to distribution, ensuring that the content is both newsworthy and accurate, and presented in an acceptable format. Adhering to the provided guidelines is crucial for expeditious approval and distribution on our platform.

Ensure that every press release maintains a clear, timely, and newsworthy angle, steering clear of advertising hype, direct address, and spam. Incorporating the following features/qualities is advised for optimal press release approval and dissemination:

Newsworthy Content that is non-promotional, such as timely information about a new product or service, business expansion or recent event, or an organizational milestone like an anniversary or award. The news announcement must be clearly stated in the headline. All press releases should be free of hype flags and direct addresses (i.e. “you,” “I,” “we,” etc.) unless used within a quotation from a spokesperson from a company or organization. Direct address is a flag that the content is an advertisement rather than a news release. Similarly, hype flags — exclamation points; hyperbolic product/service claims; descriptions of a product or service as AMAZING, or the use of upper case characters to create emphasis — challenge the credibility of your news announcement. Press Dart requires a clear news source to be identified in the headline. The news source is the company or organization that is issuing the release. If your agency, firm or business is distributing on behalf of a client, then the source would be the client’s company or organization’s name. It should also be clear how that company or organization relates to the news announcement.

Any financial-related topics including but not limited to Cryptocurrency, NFT, etc. must provide full transparency for verification, including contact information and postal address to be on the website(s) and/or social media pages.

Press Dart partners require a valid contact name, phone number, and email address in the contact information to publish any articles.

In certain cases, such as with network marketing companies, with the use of a stock ticker symbol, or with major corporate announcements such as (but not limited to) those related to M&A, Press Dart may require written authorization from a company executive before a press release is approved for distribution. Independent representatives of network marketing companies, MLM or party plan companies must always obtain the express consent of the company’s executive.

Press releases should be free of spelling and grammatical errors. Although jargon and acronyms are commonplace in natural language, make sure to include definitions for industry jargon so the average person can understand as well. Press releases cannot contain HTML tags and other formatting such as non-standard characters, tables or forced line breaks. Releases also should not be written partially or entirely in all capital letters. Before submitting your release, please ensure all links in your release are fully functional. If your website is not available or fully functional at the time of editorial review, you will need to remove the links from your release or wait until the website is in operation to submit.
