BR1 | PUBLICIZE THIS CUT

image

Advertising is a paid form of ideas, goods and services while publicity is free.

Advertising comes from an identified sponsor while publicity comes from a neutral and impartial source.

Advertising is controllable by an organisation while publicity is not controllable because it comes from a neutral source.

Advertising is less credible in comparison to publicity while publicity is more credible because it comes from an impartial source.

Advertising is what you or your organisation says and promotes about you or your organisation but publicity is what others say about you or your organisation.

Most of the time in advertising, social responsibility is ignored while in publicity special focus is given to social responsibility.
