To the Fact
Many advertisers who have not heretofore used them are waking up
to the fact that in failing to consider daily newspapers they are neglecting
the greatest of all mediums for publicity to the consumer.
The first thought to those who do not know to the contrary from
experience is "too expensive." -But this is not so. Of course, steam power
publicity through dailies to the home costs money, but what of that if it
pays? Newspaper advertising properly done, pays handsomely. Why not
try it and see for yourself ?
If you manufacture something for general use you could not do better
than to make an appropriation and try out some section of the country which
best appeals to you. The demonstration would be most valuable and would
cost practically nothing.
Think it over.
