What’s the difference between advertising, marketing and pr? Well, in simple terms, advertising costs money and pr is free. Marketing is generally a combination of the two.

That isn’t to say that you can’t find paid-for PR companies, nor that PR can’t be part of your own personal marketing efforts, but the principal still stands.

Marketing is generally a set of procedures YOU go through, to try and raise awareness and sales.

Advertising is you paying to tell other people you exist.

PR is other people talking about you, as a result of something you have done or said that has got some coverage somewhere other than your own site.
