Patch 101: How to Post an Announcement or Press Release

This video tutorial shows Pikesville Patch readers how to post an announcement—including full press releases—by using the free and easy tools available to all Patch users.

Have you ever sent a press release to Pikesville Patch and wondered when it was going to post?

How about sent a birth announcement or an obituary (which are published free on Patch sites) or school award—only to wonder if it was ever going 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, and have your information appear on Pikesville Patch instantly.

You can also post full releases, notes, updates, photos or content from your group's newsletter in our Local Voices column.

Follow this video tutorial to see how to post an announcement, step by step.

And if you have any questions, feel free to email me, Pikesville Patch Editor Janet Metzner at Janet.Metzner@patch.com.
