
A local newspaper prints a human-interest story
about a college volleyball player. Publicity is
any non-personal presentation of ideas, goods,
or services that is not paid for by the individual
or organization that benefits from or is harmed
by it. Since a newspaper article is a message
that is not paid for by the individual featured in
the article, it is an example of publicity. Unless
a message is communicated (e.g., election of
an official), it is not considered publicity. A
business owner who purchases baseball
uniforms and equipment for a Little League
baseball team is a sponsor. Advertising is form
of paid communication.

Specific images. Public-relations
strategies are developed to create and
maintain a specific image or impression
about an individual, team, or
organization with the various publics they
encounter. A low profile, suitable illusion,
or indifferent attitude might be
considered a desired or specific type of
image.

Establish a feeling of goodwill with all of the
organization's fan bases. Public relations is defined as
a function of business designed to establish and
maintain positive relationships between a business
and its various publics. Creating goodwill is a part of
establishing positive relationships. Developing positive
relationships with sponsors and advertisers is often a
function of public relations; however, it is not always
the primary consideration. Some sport/event
businesses do not have corporate sponsors or
advertisers. The way to build positive relationships
with local businesses and media is to establish
goodwill rather than boost sales and encourage
publicity. Publicity is one way that public-relations
people communicate a message.

Without ongoing fan support, a performer's
popularity or an organization's profitability
decreases. Fans purchase tickets, memorabilia,
and sponsorships and support tax initiatives.
These actions contribute to the level of
popularity or profitability. Although spectators
make up a very important fan base, it cannot
be assumed that all sport/event marketers
consider it the most important fan base. Publicrelations strategies are designed to maintain a
certain image by creating a feeling of
goodwill. Small sport/event venues are often
successful in building and maintaining fan
support

The means to spread news to the masses.
Television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and
the Internet are media tools that can distribute
information very quickly to a lot of people. By
maintaining positive, trusting relationships with
members of the media, sport/event marketers
can often influence the media to distribute
positive publicity and encourage them to be
fair when unfavorable news breaks. The media
(e.g., broadcast) are often subject to
government regulation. Advertising is a paid
form of promotion. Members of the media
have a lot of control over the content of their
publications or broadcasts.
