Are You Satisfied With the Busi =
ness You Do ?
There are few business men who
vould not Increase their trade if they
ould devise means to do U. Any
nan would be willing to pay a per-
outage of the Increased proilt for the
uko of maintaining the now stltuu-
us. It Is a rare business man who
vould not gladly hire an additional
alcsmau or solicitor if , by so doing ,
hat salesman or solicitor would In
crease the bulk of business so much
hat the added profits would pay the
alary of the now man and leave stir-
) lus cash for the bouso.
A good salesman or a good solicitor
s one who , by his skill In presenting
ho selling points of the goods at hand ,
s able to make sales which otherwlso
vould not be made. If a high-salaried
salesman did not sell things which ,
vcro It not for his presentation , would
lot otherwise have boon sold , ho
\ould earn no more money for his
employer than an ordinary fellow.
\nd if it wore not possible to make
icople buy things which , but for the
salesman's work , they would have left
inpurchased , then the simplest , child
vould be as valuable in a store or in
an agency , as the cleverest and most
cxperieucod professional. ,
An advertisement is uioioly a sales
man or a solicitor , which talks to sev
eral thousand people at the same time.
An advertisement , llko a human
salesman , may bo so clever that it
vlll create a demand for the goods
ind wonderfully increase the sales ;
or it may bo so commonplace , so un
skilled and so devoid of effective pres
entation that what it says will appeal
Advertising Has Come to Be a Sci
ence and a Fine Art.
An advertisement must contain rea
sons why the reader will find it to his
ulvantage to buy the articles adver-
ised. An advertisement must be none
no re and no less than a printed con
versation , such as the salesman would
speak if he were talking , earnestly
ind seriously , to a prospective buyer.
t can not ramble if it Is to bring re
sults. It can not cover , in the same
Ine , two separate articles any more
than a salesman dare try to sell , in
the same breath , two different things.
It"must bo clean-cut ; rid of superflu
ous literature ; sharp , definite and con
No ad. will pay which is not so writ
ten as to create a demand for the ar
ticle or articles advertised. Every ar
ticle advertised should be' set off , like
i newspaper article , in a department
of Its own , with a head-line calling at
tention to it and with Its every selling
point brought out and exhausted just
as completely and as thoroughly as Is
Ills story written by a newspaper re
An Ad is News ,
Every ad. Is news , In its way. And
it must bo written in just as Interest
ing a manners as is the news with
which it must compete for favor , on
the same page , it must be clever
enough to attract the attention of the
prospective buyer. 'Magazines today
are as thoroughly read In the advertis
ing pages as they are In the story
pages , for the reason that the ads. are
news , Interestingly conceived.
The Heading Is All-Important.
The heading of an advertisement ,
the smaller the more true , Is all-Im
portant in the results which are to
be gained. The heading must be so
worded as to attract the attention of
the person who is Interested in that
particular and who , therefore , may
prove a buyer. A person afflicted with
sore feet will grasp at any tiny adver
tisement whose headline indicates that
there is relief to be found for those
pedal extremities. Likewise a house
keeper will follow down the wording
of any ad , which , in the bold-faced
head , indicates bargains for her de
partment be 'it llatlrons , groceries ,
hot doughnuts or what not.
CUTS , for this reason , are valuable
features of any ad. They Instantly
show the line of goods that are dis
cussed and attract the attention of the
desired ones. And a cut , foh this rea
son , must pertain to the article ad
vertised , and must , in itsqlf , be able
to dlbplay points in the article which
wij.1 create a demand for It. Any shoe
cut , for instance , will denote that the
ad , tells about shoes. But if the cut
Is a picture of a well shaped , stylishly
made , substantial shoe , it will have a
tendency to create a demand for that
particular shoo , Just as would the
words of a salesman who took time to
say that the nhoo was of fine shape ,
up-to-date , hajid-sewed and durable.
The so-called "catchy" headings
which many business man hare writ *
ten over their ads. , men who have re
ceived no returns and quit Investing
in space because "it didn't pay , " are
not effective. The reason Is evident.
The general reader , who perhaps reads
the first few lines from pure curiosity ,
quits In disgust. And very frequently
the person whom It is desired to in
terest , will never look at the ad. be
cause It does not interest him at the
outset. On a newspaper , the greatest * l'
cnro is taken to write headlines which , f\ '
will , at the first glance , give the gist
of the whole story. If it is a baseball
article , therefore , the fan knows it
nt once and will read It. The politi
cian will pass by. Dally papers pay
largo salaries for exports who do noth
ing but write thcfto headlines. But
an advertiser will often head his dis
cussion with a line which says "Cold
Weather Is Coming , " when it should
have been "Do You Need an Under
shirt ? " The man in need might and
might not care whether cold weather
ho will read the lines that follow Just '
was coming or not. It Is n cinch ,
though , that if ho needs an undershirt
to see what sort of bargain he can se
cure. If ho does need an undershirt
or If it happens to bo a dentist's ad
that tells him bis aching tooth can be
pulled painlessly ,
He Will Visit the Advertiser.
When ho has done that , the ad. has
done its work. It is then up to the
clerks or the dentist to sell him everything -
thing in the building that ho can pos
sibly use. If they fall to do that , it
is new salesmen that are needed and
not a different method of advertising.
If nothing but the goods advertised
were sold as the result of an ad. , then
that ad. surely would not pay. It la
the profit made from additional sales ,
alter the buyer has been attracted to
the store which
Makes Advertising Pay.
That is the reason why leaders can
be offered , even at cost or perhaps at
a loss , and still net the advertiser a
margin on the transaction. That la
why special sales pay , even though
the specials are cut to bed rock. That
Is why advertising all of the time , ev
ery day and every day , and with al y
ways something newsy , clever , attrac
tive to the taste and the purse of the
reader , can ue made to pay and to
pay well. It stands to reason that ad
vertising MUST NOT BE SPASMOD
IC if it is to bring the best results.
If a baseball column in a newspaper
was printed but once a month , it ia
easy to see why "fans" would not look
tq that column when It did , periodical
ly appear. It logically follows that a
housewife will not look at a certain
corner of the paper today for clothaa
pin bargains , if that corner contained
bargains but three times within va
year. The readers must be trained to
expect to find ads. worth looking at ,
before they will take the time to do
The People to Reach.
The people to reach , advantageously ,
are those who can get to the advertis
er , either by mall or In person , to taka
advantage of the articles mentioned.
Advertisers In Norfolk naturally de-
falre to reach everybody In the city , all
of the farmers within a driving dis
tance from the city and other persons
in tributary territory who may visit
To the end of covering this Identical
field , The News ha's been working for
years. It now does cover this field
very thoroughly every day in the year.
The rural routes out of Norfolk , tit
which there are five today , are reached
by The News just as effectually and as
thoroughly as are the homes In the
city. The farmers around Norfolk
read The News every day In the week
just as they used
to read weekly pa
pers. Their papers , containing local
and telegraph markets and news , are
delivered at their doors every day.
There is no business In the world
which cannot be stimulated by adver
tising. It will not only gain new pa-
Irons but It will Increase the patronage
of former ones. Advertising is not
a venture. If used Judiciously and
systematically It is bound to bring re
sults. There Is no other way out of
it. It is a commodity in which th *
business man invests for the sake ol
