PR Lingo: A Press Release vs. Media Advisory vs. Fact Sheet

When working with PR folk, you’re guaranteed to hear words like “press release,” “media advisory” and “fact sheet” a million times. Like all industry-specific lingo, buzzwords tend to blend into one another and become convoluted. Yet, while these terms might seem similar, they represent specific documents with unique roles and rules.

Sure, it’s easy to let the PR pros handle their industry jargon. However, both clients and firms benefit from a mutual understanding of how these mechanisms work. If everyone is on the same page, it becomes easier for both parties to sync their PR strategies.

Check out the graphic below to get a basic overview of each media outreach mechanism, along with their goals and formatting.
