TALKS ON ADVERTISING
That Gets Away
By Henry Herbert Huff
COPYRIGHT. 1909. BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
"Good morning, Mr. Business Man!"
"Well, say, what about keeping my patrons from going fo'
Near City to trade ?"
"I realize that this is quite a problem. You are not doing
your part, however. Every week the Near City merchants send
pages of bargain offerings-into many of the homes in this commu
nity. These people read them and go there to buy. That is per
fectly natural. Your prices are -ery likely equally low, but how
are they to know if you do not tell them? Frequently a distant
store that advertises widely is betiter known to the public than one
in their own town that shuns publicity. If you business men of
this town will advertise and prove that you offer as good values
as the Near City merchants, you will get back your trade. It
pays to sacrifice profit on some items if you have to in order to
substantiate this claim. The larger stores give the patron a little
better selection, but the country merchant can do as well in price.
Let larger sales, smaller profits, be the watchword."
"But we have done some advertising'
"Yes, but I must tell you candidly such copy will not bring
trade. I shall explain later HOW an ad. should be written, but let
us pass to something else."
"What about these 'soap' clubs*?"
"You said your customers approve of this idea of paying double
prices for their goods and being deceived into believing the premium
costs nothing. Sell that way yourself. That is the solution to
this problem. Make up assortments as nearly as possible like
those of the 'soap' companies and pick attractive premiums to go
with them. But this alone is not sufficient. You must tell the
people you are ready to match these offers, likewise where you
meet mail order prices. You told me you could do so. It remains
to convince the public of this, and that is the work of advertising."
"You have convinced me that advertising is what is needed -to
put an end to our troubles. I never saw it in this way before."
"Yes, Mr. Business Man, charity is out of place in business.
The fellow who gets trade is the one who proves to the public that
he can give it the greatest value for its money. It will not do to
WAIT for business. You must go after it. And now, when by
well planned advertising you have cornered 'the trade that gets
awE.y,' suppose you take a hand in the game the Near City mer
chants played on you. For years the farmers south of you have
been buying in rival tv-sns. Business men there consider this trade
safe for eternity. Why don't you business fellows make a bid for
a share of it? An aggressive advertising campaign, with plenty of
'leaders,' will pull it away while the outside merchants are sleeping.
Business is a game in which every one is entitled to all he can get
legitimately. Go where you choose for it. Land all you can."
To Whom it May Concern.
