Public relations is the opposite of advertising. In advertising, you pay to have your message placed online, in a newspaper, or on television or radio. In public relations, the article or spotlight that features your company is not paid for. Most important publicity has greater credibility with the public than does advertising. Readers feel that if the media is featuring your company, you must be doing something worthwhile.

Hundreds of VFMC Exclusive Funeral Home Providers enjoy top of mind awareness created by the exposure and visibility that our nationally acclaimed public relations programs deliver.
