W. M. Ostrander, of Philadelphia,
Is one of the moat successful
real estate men In the country.
He sella property from
Maine to California and hat
built up an enorma.ua business by
advertising. In an address before
the 8phlnx Club, or New York, he
said: "
"I am a firm believer in big ads.
Like all big things, the big ad. attracts
attention and produces an
Impression through its size, an Impression
which is entirely separate
and apart from that produced _ by
Ha contents, an Impression which
can be obtained no other way.
"Furthermore, tho man with the
biggest ad. gets the credit for having
the biggest business, and for
that reason .a pretty large percentage
of the public will patronize
him. They believe that the biggest
business must be the best; otherwise
It would not be the biggest."
Tk? D^fallaa* anrl Adv/?rtls?r
sty*: "A merchant cannot have
too much publicity. It la the breath
of life to merchandising. Without
It, a business cannot grow; it cannot
even exist. With increased
publicity comes a corresponding increase
in growth. And while publicity
continues to expand there is
no danger of reaching a period
when the business will stop growing."
