The models from basic to sophisticated include the sequence -

2.Public information
3.Two-way asymmetrical communication
4.Two-way symmetrical communication

Each model represents a specific ethical orientation that when considered collectively illustrates the ethical development of public relations. We can discuss about all these four models in brief just to get an idea about its further implications in broader aspects. 
  • Press agentry model- it deals with the first and foremost task to grab attention for the specific organization in order to do its publicity. 
  • Public information model- uses various media relations techniques to accommodate public relations information into different news stories. 
  • Two-asymmetrical model- it advocates two-way communication which must be persuasive. 
  • Two-way symmetrical model- this helps not only to create but also sustains mutually beneficial relationships between the organization and its customers or stakeholders.
