term for many activities as sponsoring, arranging exhibitions, seminars,
shows, publishing a newsletter and brochures, and other activities.

is easier as you may think. And you may know, an editorial article about
your product or service is always more convincing than a paid ad - and
additional you save a lot of money.

web site address is included. Apply the same to your press release. All

No editor will publish advertising for free, but an interesting press release may result in free publicity.
