The author recommends assessing if the press releases being created do indeed carry newsworthy information. Ideally, press releases must be about information that can grab journalist's attention, and not about the "smallest bit of company news." 

If the messaging being sent out is sound, do check whether the marketing strategy needs to be more effective than it currently is. Seek expertise from a management consultancy company is strategy needs to be rethought.
