Pressburst is a publishing and communications platform for publicising news, jobs and events. Developed by Attain, Pressburst membership gives schools access to a wealth of resources for just £300 + VAT per annum.
Whether you work in Communications or HR, Pressburst saves you both time and money. Developed by Attain, Pressburst is now used by over half the independent sector in the UK. Here's why:
And Pressburst offers exceptional value for money. All features are included – with unlimited news and job postings – at just £25 per month, per school (£300 + VAT per annum).
Pressburst lets you easily share your news
Pressburst radically simplifies the process of creating, publishing and promoting news stories to the media. The system guides you through the process of composing a story, uploading photographs and publishing it. Stories from Pressburst can be automatically shared with our channel partners – including Attain, the Independent Schools Council (ISC), the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS), the Girls' Schools Association (GSA) and the Society of Heads.
But Pressburst goes further. You can turn any story into a professionally-formatted press release. Why is this better than sending it manually through your email program? The key difference is that through Pressburst, the release is formatted in the most accessible way possible for journalists – with absolutely no attachments.
You can manage all your press contacts directly in Pressburst and it's a huge time-saving feature, as well as improving both the professionalism of your releases and the likelihood of them being picked up by the press.
And finally, Pressburst simplifies sharing stories with social media, enabling you to post stories to your Twitter and Facebook accounts directly from the system. Your stories can also be posted to the Attain app for parents – which you can customise and add branding for your school. And if you want to take full advantage of Pressburst's features, you can even integrate it with the news section of your own website so stories you publish in Pressburst appear automatically on your own school website.
Pressburst is easy to use, with first-class support
To gain all these benefits requires Pressburst membership at a cost of £300 + VAT per annum – the equivalent of just £25 per month. Membership applies to all schools in a foundation, giving all staff access to the features of Pressburst. Schools can add an unlimited number of user accounts to enable as many staff as possible to work together to promote news, events and jobs – and to as wide an audience as possible.
We offer comprehensive online support – with an audio guide which explains how to use all the key aspects of the system – and email support to answer any questions or to help with any technical problems.
