A RICH HARVEST
JAN ONLY BE REALIZED FROM
To Manufacturers t
IF you wished to get the
biest harvest from .
given tract of land you
would not blow seed to the
winds thinly scattered over
the country. . . You would
plant it regularly and sys
tematically in a section no
larger than you could have
properly watched and cul
tivated. You would then
get the richest crop possi
ble, and if you were wise
you would not overwork
your land and thus shorten
its productive life, but you
would produce this year what would help the income from your land
next year, and the year after, and so on.
. It is just so in advertising. The use of so-called "national me
diums," of general circulation, Is scattering your seed too thinly over too
great a territory. You may get valuable general publicity in this way
but you cannot expect it to do any thorough cultivating. This is no
disparagement of general mediums, for space in them is well worth
what it costs, but you must not expect them to yield anything like
maximum 'results for a given territory.
You can only obtain maximum results and profit from any given
locality by the mans of Daily Newspaper Publicity. The newspaper
will cultivate the local field as no other medium can possibly do it. It
goes to the home. It takes the news of the day to the home fireside.
It is the messenger between the outer world and the reader you seek
to reach. It sells things.
By selecting any section of country which best appeals to you for the
