Also included a link to an ineffective ad, providing evidence that the ad campaign failed (cite your source in proper APA or MLA format). In your summary, explain (in your opinion) why one ad succeeds and the other fails.
B) After reading this week’s Learning Resources, provide an example,(other than those listed in the readings) where public relations campaigns have been effective or ineffective, and provide a link to information about that example.  Answer, in short answer format, why was the campaign successful or unsuccessful? Provide a link to the example.
