rHE advertiser's best
which he obtains tho biggest returns for his mooy.
One medium which la used by advertlaors to a great
extent Is the circular or booklet. The circular or
booklet is always Ineffective, unless It is verv handsome
handsome enough to attract the eye of the man to whom it
is sent, no matter how busy he may be. A booklet band
some enough to do this almost alvays costs from three to
four cents apiece. There is the mailing to count In (two
cents a copy, of course); there is th trouble In getting a list
of names, and in addressing. Altogether the cost will ngnre
up to about seven cents a copy for a good booklet. Two
thousand circulation In a booklet Is very large. Two thou
sand circulation at seven cents is $140. I propose to show
that you can Invest $110 in newspaper space and gJt returns
five fold of what you would get through a booklet.
Newspaper Space Is Valuable I
In the first p!aco there is the cost. For $140 you can get v
a gond sized space in a n wspaper of good circulation for
quite a long time. You knew your newspaper rates; you can v
figure it out to suit your own instance much better than 1
can. So much for cosL
:: Now for Effectiveness
You must tell your customers how much your goods are
going to cost. An advertisement without a price le like meat
without salt It will do you no good. How can you put
prices In a booklet when you are doing a strictly retail busi
ness? You have competitors; you have to change yonr
prices constantly to meet theirs, and to meet other exl
, gencies. The first change of a price will kill the effective
ness of a booklet, and where are you? Your advertisement
In a newspaper may be changed as many times as you de-
i sire. You are constantly up-to-date.
I The Newspaper Is Effective
ft Any kind of a newspaper has more circulation thnn you
i can obtain through a booklet for $140. Newspapers reach
the heart of the home. Every one reads them, and they are
A" far more certain to obtain close attention than any printed
Jj matter which you would send. If you sent printed matter
of your own accord to persons w.'io do not know you. you
A would be putting yourself face to face with thm without a
. guarantee. They have nothing to judg the quality of your
goods by, and they can only take what you say on our own
fi paper and In your own way. Anybody can say as' much aa
When your matter appears in a newspaper of good circu
lation and good standing, the newspaper is a guarantee for
what you say. Newspapers are always particular aa to whom
their advertisers are. (I speak of good newspapers always.)
Your ads will gain a value besides thlr inherent one. They
will be vouched for, and this Is not to b despised. You
have a certain fluctuating trade, which is always valuable.
and which needs some sort of an introduction to your store.
This Introduction the newspaper gives you.
Good Paper Adds Dignity
You are known by the company you keep, yon know, v
and If your ads appear in a paper whic'a holds itself up be- J
fore the masses as a leader, you will be known as a patron v
of what Is good, and you will obtain trade from thoae whom v
It is worth trading with. JJ
On all scores I consider newspaper advertising by far v
the best. On the score of cheapness; on Ihe score of being
able to constantly change your announcements; on the score
of direct and immediate returns; and on the score ot bein; v
Introduced t"o people, to strangers, as a store which can af- v
ford to announce Its news to every one in a dignified and
straightforward manner, and this is tbe manner which brings v
trade that pays.
