What are the advantages and disadvantages of using an advertorial vs. a regular advertisement? Where can I find more specific research on this topic?

The Media Guru Answers(Saturday, June 23, 2001 ):
advertorials are generally designed to look like the ordinary content of the publication. Often they are provided by the publication as an inducemnt to advertise.

On the plus side, if they fool the reader, then they appear to carry the endorsement of the (presumably trusted) publication.

On the negative side, they are typically less impactful in terms of graphics and headline. Further, there is the danger that the consumer will realize you have attempted to fool him and react negatively.

The key advantages of advertorials are the implied endorsement of the product by the publication and the appearent authoritativeness of the publication in the product category.

The Media Guru Answers(Thursday, May 23, 1996 ):
The Guru recalls some good advertorials for Genie Garage Door Openers in home mechanics and do-it-yourself magazines in '92 or '93.

"Vertical" books have more opportunity for advertorial, so you should request samples and case studies from the publications you deem most likely to be your advertorial vehicles.
