Each of these has its own defined parameters of working and circumstances. Each engages specific set of rules that are in line with the initially set goal of either profit making or service delivery. The Public relation methods and advertisement procedures undertaken by each of the organization are different. One primarily focuses on the commercial aspect on it, the second focuses on the donations, charity, awareness, and thought provoking processes which may come as a special form of advertisement (LeRoux & Feeney, 2014,p. 22).
