DE take note. Marketers and publishers must make clear that advertorials are marketing communications, for example, by heading them "Advertisement Feature". Advertisement features often mirror the format, style and typography of editorial articles contained in the same publication.
It is particularly important, therefore, that readers can see at once that what they are looking at is not editorial, but an advertisement feature.
Help note.......Advertise
ment Features.
The material should be prominently labelled as an 'Advertisement'.
Some acceptable examples are : 'Advertisement Promotion' or 'Advertisement Feature'. The term 'Advertorial' should be avoided because it does not make it sufficiently clear to the uninformed reader whether the feature is an advertisement or an editorial.

Well done guys for your negative comments!! I personally found this great news, a young business taking up empty High street retail units, and as for it being an advert, well I can't remember the last advert I saw with the property rental price in?? I think that we as a city should be encouraging independent businesses into southampton and that our local news paper should be helping to promote these!! Keep up the good work DE
