Need Holiday Content for Your Site? Look No Further.

While you might be watching your colleagues start off on their vacations or staycations, you’ve got more holiday feature writing to do. This annual deadline might not always lead to your most creative writing.

Thankfully, you’ve got a place to go: PR Newswire for Journalists can help journalists and bloggers fill those empty spaces on their websites with compelling holiday news content.

When readying your site for the holidays, we’ve got you covered.

Standalone Holiday News Stories

Thanks to content marketing, news releases have become great vehicles for storytelling. Marketers and publicists know you’re pressed for time and low on staff through the new year, so they’re making releases easier than ever to use.

Even if you completed your holiday gift-giving guide or roundups months prior, you likely must continue updating your website. So unless a major news event occurs, you’re probably still recycling the same ideas, tweaking them a bit, and adding a 2023 or 2024 label.

A quick search of recent releases uncovered these announcements, which can be used as standalone or evergreen holiday pieces:

Holiday Shopping News & Gift Guides

‘Tis the time of year for consumer and retail companies to announce new products and savings for consumers. And similar to recent years, many of the holiday sales are starting early, have been extended over several days/weeks, or have moved entirely online, so it’s important for journalists and bloggers to keep up with the latest announcements.
