I’m delighted to announce that you can now submit your press releases to ‘The Enterprise’. If approved, they will be published in our new “BizProfile” news section.

Question: Why are you publishing news releases?

Answer: There’s a lot of important news out there – especially within the small business sector – and which are either being ignored or not made known to the traditional media. I’d love to breach this gap in the news flow, and provide you news and information not covered by regular media — and I know you’d love to read more news and information about what’s happening within the small business arena. So I thought I’d let you submit your press releases, subject to being reviewed by my editorial team.

Question: Will you publish everything submitted?

Answer: I will publish only news that is of interest to small businesses, startups, entrepreneurs, and charitable organisations. Please do not submit press releases that are off-topic or unrelated to small businesses, startups, entrepreneurs, or non-profit organisations.

All submissions will be made via eMail. I’ll do our best to review them within 48 hours. I reserve the right to choose which news releases to publish. Also, due to time commitments I cannot commit to notify you whether your release has been accepted or not. Please check your copy of ‘The Enterprise’ weekly.

Question: Does it cost anything to submit a press release?

Answer: This is a free service. It costs you nothing.

Question: I’d like to submit a guest article — may I submit that via eMail?

Answer: No, please do not submit guest articles. The Enterprises is designed for news and business profile — not articles. Please submit press releases and news announcements only. If you’d like to be featured in our BizProfile section, please eMail me for our BizProfile Format/

Question: Are you trying to compete with other news distribution services?

Answer: Ha! I wish!  Joking aside, no, I have no intention of becoming a news distribution service at this time. I am not equipped to distribute news as widely as newswires and press release distribution services, or our local media. This is strictly a community service for the small business sector and non-profit organisations whose news and announcements often get ignored by the mainstream media.

Question: Where will my press release be published if you accept it?

Answer: If I accept your press release, it will be designated as a “press release” and will appear in the news section of The Enterprise.

Question: Where do I submit my press release?

Answer: enterpriseblog@aol.com
