Here is a brief explanation of the main differences between advertising, marketing, and PR:

    Thanks Dr. V!

    Although I read about this in our textbook, your descriptions very very clear and made great “links” for me about the similarities and differences in these three areas.

    Much appreciated!

    That’s interesting that you mentioned the Four P’s for Marketing because in my Advertising class (first semester this past year) and she made sure we knew the difference between the two.

    I enjoyed this post because you really have a knack for explaining things so everyone can understand. Now I know the difference between all three. Advertising: buying space and government regulation. Marketing: end result focuses on a purchase. PR: deals with more than one public and is in charge of building relationships with these. 🙂
