Press Releases: Tell Me What You Think

If you get them....

  • Love 'em? Hate 'em?
  • Do you read them?
  • Are they usually too long/too short/just right?
  • What information do you care about in addition to who, what, when, where, ticket prices?
Comments or email would be great.

I get 'em. I love 'em. I don't read every word, and they can be long. But I like having the info if I decide it is something I want to cover or know more about later on which does happen.

I get them from a few groups, but it can be difficult to tell at first glance what is a press release and what is e-mail to potential ticket buyers (I'm on a lot of performance mailing lists). I generally skim them but will read in detail if I'm interested, until I get to the obvious boilerplate ("Performance Group X is the leading purveyor of . . . "). I like getting them -- they remind me of performances I might otherwise overlook.

Don't really read them. Often, there's too much information for something that probably won't interest me. I prefer a quick Tweet. If it sounds interesting in only a few characters, I'll click the link. If not, I'll move on.

Thank you both!
