TELLING--ADVERTISE.* Is dvertisinff? Advertising is nothini more or less than salesmanship. By ,tdvertising you sell to several hundred people at one time Instead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the realm of magic. It is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason and desires oE the people whose trade is sought. How do you advertise? There are no end of ways in which yml may advertise; there is the hill-board, the circular, the Poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, by word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best ~ethod of them all. What does advertising do for you?---All advertising is in- tended to create good will for the product or service adver- tised. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aera and thereby increase the volume of your business or your annual turn-over.
