    be defined as making goods

    news item or story which conveys
    information about a product, service, or
    idea in the media.
 Information
           that attracts attention to a
 Company, Product, Person, or event.

A  third party, usually from the media,
 is often employed to generate
    Type of promotion that relies on public
    relations effect of a news story carried usually
    free by mass media.

 The     main objective of publicity is not sales
    promotion, but creation of an image through
    editorial or 'independent source' commentary.
    While the publicist can control the content of the
    story, he or she may not have any control over
    its placement or interpretation by the media.

      Features of Good Publicity
    1. Publicity is neither too cheap nor too
    dear, it is only good or bad. Even when it
    seems cheap, if it is bad it is always too
      Features of Good Publicity
    2. Good publicity reaches the right people
    in the right place at the right time, and
    above all by the right means.
       Features of Good Publicity
 3. Good publicity does not add words to a
  given illustration, nor does it make a
  picture to fit a given text. Illustration and
  text spring from the same idea, they affect
  and explain each other.
      Features of Good Publicity
    4. Good publicity springs from the subject
    which it serves, attracts attention to it, and
    is harmonious with it.
      Features of Good Publicity
    5. Ideas, means and methods of good
    publicity should be clever but easily
    intelligible, because the public, while not
    wishing to be underrated, does not like to
    be forced to think too much.
Publicity should be true, specific,
  informative, and attractive.
     Basic Principles of Publicity
 Put creativity into your publicity! You can
  generate more enthusiasm and interest by using
  unique, fresh, and clever methods of
  promotion. Developing gimmicks or logos,
  utilizing pictures and unusual shapes are all
  ways in which publicity can be made more
   Basic Principles of Publicity
  If no one type of publicity reaches the
  entire audience, you must use more
  than one. More than one medium can
  also reinforce and intensify your
  message. Use a variety of techniques
  that work well together and
  complement each other.
   Basic Principles of Publicity
  An advertisement must be seen or heard
  several times before it has any impact. The
  more often it is seen or heard, the greater the
  retention of your message. Thus, you can
  magnify the impact of your publicity by
  increasing the frequency with which it is
  seen or heard
     Basic Principles of Publicity

 Since the frequency with which publicity is
  seen or heard is crucial to its effectiveness, it
  makes sense to place your publicity in
  locations that have high visibility. Areas with
  the greatest traffic patterns usually have the
  highest visibility. Good locations include:
  mailbox areas, cafeteria walls, bathrooms
  and bathroom stalls, under or on room
  doors, bulletin boards, etc.
   Basic Principles of Publicity
  How often an advertisement is seen will have
  little impact if what is seen is not
  legible. The greater the legibility, the greater
  the chances that an individual will read all of
  the information. Greater legibility is ensured
  by using lower case lettering rather than
  uppercase. Capitals may be used for
  emphasis; but to be effective, emphasis must
  be used sparingly.
    Basic Principles of Publicity
   Even if your message is readable or can be heard
   well, it must be understandable to get the message
   across. You can make your publicity more
   understandable and more effective by incorporating
   the following points:
         i. Be concise and clear.
      ii. Avoid excess verbiage.
     iii. Use terminology that the target
            audience would understand.
   Basic Principles of Publicity
  Publicize well enough in advance. If publicity
  goes out too late, it does not give people
  enough time to plan to attend an activity. For
  optimum exposure, publicity should be out at
  least one week before your activity is
  scheduled to take place; however, you may
  want to issue additional publicity pieces as
  the event approaches

 Online –         Using the internet
