Traditionally, the majority of marketers relied primarily upon advertising to spread awareness about their brands. This used to work till the audiences weren’t bombarded by advertising messages day in and day out and almost everywhere they go. And then, the audiences grew smarter and effectively blind to most of the display advertising because of the perception that advertisers buy their way into the media.
Publicity, on the other hand, has slowly been gaining ground as an effective tool for building successful brands because of its inherent strengths of being perceived as more reliable compared to advertising and the fact that audiences trust more in what a journalist has to say about a brand than in what the brand owner ‘thinks’ about his brand and ‘says’ through advertising.
If intelligently used together, both tools can create a valuable and huge impact in effective brand building as they can create a powerful synergy. This is what we sincerely believe in at Brands Academy and this is what we help our clients to learn and utilise in their brand building efforts.
