100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 28 January 1914
100 WELL ItfiQWN TO NEED AN "AD.." This idea that you have lived so long In town that everybody knows you and you don't need 'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as it is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere > nothing to great concerns. The merchant »vho can cnnvincc the people of his section, anj l:ecp litem convinced that his store ir the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail order hrufc. Cf course he cannot afford to ;^ct out a catalogue as thick as a Uible bur lie can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is chanjjcd, thus keeping new bargains continually be for the public. He should also hart a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is.not a single country newspaper in the State, with a federal local ci...
