It is a probability based survey use to access the target population and derive useful results from it. There are usually two types of sample surveys: The open-ended format and the close-ended format. The open-ended format uses the interview method for data collection and the close-ended format uses questionnaires for sampling purpose. Both are relevant and are use according to target population and the criterion. The most important thing that needs to be kept in mind is the formulation of the sampling process. Utmost attention should be given to it while doing so. It is the most important market research technique that is used.
As may be expected a format that is meant to be read out loud will look very different from one that is meant to be read. Unfortunately it is not always easy to gain access to a sample press release format for these media outlets. That said one can always try calling the station and see if someone can help out. Regardless of where your press release is going to appear it needs to be formatted properly. If you look at a sample press release format you may be fooled into thinking that the structure is universal. Perhaps it can be said that the parts of a press release are a bit like car parts.
Before beginning to search for a sample press release format it is important to give some thought to which publications your feature is going to appear it. From there it is easy to go to the companies websites and look for submission guidelines. Even if they do not offer a sample press release format it is still possible to examine the documents previously published to gather information on what works and what does not. It would be a good idea to print a few of them and pay special attention to where specific types of information go. As an example some sample press release format guidelines state that the basic contact and location information of the business should be found in the first paragraph of the press release.
