New to Public Relations

By Dianna Rubino

This semester I am taking Comm 320 which is the intro to advertising class.  So far we haven’t done very much but we are currently talking about the differences between advertising and publicity/public relations.  I found it interesting to learn some of the differences between the two because I was never quite sure what they were.  We learned in yesterdays class that the publicity associated with public relations that some people mistake as advertising is actually free.  Things like news releases, interviews and feature articles usually don’t cost PR companies nearly as much money as it takes advertisers to get their products out there.  I am pretty new at PR and advertising, I just recently decided this semester that this is what I want to major in so I found these few simple facts interesting and I’m looking forward to learning more.
