Bet You Don’t Know This About Advertising (Nov, 1950)

Bet You Don’t Know This About Advertising

By Susan

Quiz No. 1
What does it cost to advertise a pack of a leading brand of cigarettes? Is it 2c a pack? 3c? 5c?

Answer: It costs less than 1/2c a pack to advertise the big brands of cigarettes. That’s only half the story. Advertising lowers your cost two ways:
Cuts the selling costs. And by helping make mass production possible, lowers the production costs, too.

So advertising saves you many times that 1/2c per pack.

NO USE CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK (Feb, 1909)

I like that dropping in an elevator is presented along with someone falling from a street car. I’m pretty sure that the danger of elevators is one of the reasons you’re always supposed to let women and children off first. This seems to be one of those problems that has been completely licked because when was the last time you heard of an elevator accident?

NO USE CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK

Accidents will happen. Crying won’t help pick up the milk or mend the broken jug; but a little forethought will insure you money to buy more.

Suppose you should drop with an elevator tomorrow, or fall from a street car, and be picked up with a broken leg? Where would you get the money for the doctor and the landlord and the grocer? Not out of your pay envelope, for you wouldn’t be earning any pay for a while.
