THE DULL SEASONS
By GEORGE S. BANTA.
The attitude of many merchants,
toward advertising is weil illustrated'
oy their disposition to spend money,
on publicity only when they are pros
pering. Just as soon as they foresee
a probable business slump they not
only scale down their advertising ex
penses but help along the depression
by discontinuing all advertising.
It is easy to see that a man who
handles his advertising on this p|aa
does not have a very deep four, ii fM
belief in its value? He has never con
sidered the matter from the invest
ment standpoint at all and it would bo
better for him and better for adver
tising if he would stop all further ex
penditures until he bad looked moro
deeply into the subject.
If he will take up the study with
an open mind he will see that there
is no time when he can afford to ba
without advertising, or when he dan
safely withdraw from the field t?fi?
leave it to his competitors. He knqws
that if he closes his doors for ov?
weeks or a month, when he cornea
back he will have lost some of Bis;
business. He can't leave his adver
tisements out of the home paper for
an equal period without suffering a
similar loss. It takes more coal to get
steam into a boiler than it does to
run a locomotive many miles. The
cumulative effect of live advertising
ls too valuable to neglect, even In dull!
Nor is there any definite proportion
between the volume of business and:
the quantity of advertising required.
Many merchants talk of "exhausting
their advertising appropriation" much
as though it were a ten-quart pall.
Personally, I cannot imagine finding
a man who would not give 75 cents
for $1, without regard to the number
of purchases of the same kind he
might have made previously the same
season. And similarly if the adver
tising is necessary and will benefit
the business it should be Indulged in.
The only criterion we have to go by la
results, and If the results justify an.
expenditure of $1,000 lt was good
business to spend it And likewise
If the results do not Justify an ex
penditure of $10 it is a mistake to
have spent that sum.
The man who looks at his advertis-i
lng in this light will have an equl-j
librium that dull seasons will not dla?'
Advertising is a handle that
will fit all lines of legitimate
AD METHODS IN ENGLAND
London Expert Wishes for th? Pleas-,
ant Relations That Exist in
J. W. Mudie, London advertising
manager of the Dundee (Scotland)'
Courier, addressed the advertising
staff of the New York Times recently
on advertising in this country and
his own. He declared that he would
like to sec the pleasant relationship
that exists among agents and adver
tising men here in vogue in Scotland
The British agents seem to be jeal
ous of one another, he said, and there
is not the same harmony as here. In
this country larger commissions are
paid egents, but these are only on.
loreign business and not on local. He
declared the splitting of commissions
to be a serious matter, or at least lt
is so looked upon in his part of Eng
One of the best and most success
ful schemes of getting advertising as
practiced home he said is the main
tenance of a service bureau, through
which advertisement models are
drawn up and submitted to prospects,
improvements in their past advertis
ing attempts pointed out, etc.
Interest among readers is also
aroused by^ various means and at'
much expense. These are such aa
lectures, cinematograph shows, etc.
Like American English publishers
are trying to clean their papers of all
advertisements of a doubtful charac
ter, too, he said.
Credits Growth to Advertising.
Paul Schulze of Chicago, president
of the National -Association of Master.
Bakers, ls a warm advocate of adver
tising. He says that several years
ago. while riding on a "rubberneck
wagon" in New York, he was Impress
ed by the advertisements of a number
of articles well known to most people
of the United States. His wife, he
said, also was impressed by the "ada"'
"Paul, that's what we must dd-we
must advertise, and some of these
days we shall be living on Fifth ave
"And that suggestion," said Mr.
Schulze, "was the beginning of our'
first real growth. By following out
that suggestion I have seen our little
baking business grow out of one shop
into larger shops again and again-al
ways with a more literal appropria
tion for advertising than in the years
before, till we find ourselves spending
for advertising in a single year more
money than our total sales amounted
to during our first year in business."
The Name and the Thing.
When you speak of "Lubin"' and
"Farlni" In Paris or around the world
as well, everybody who hears or reads
their names ls compelled to think or
perfume:? and colognes at one::-That's
