This is two to three times or more the number of people who attend a farm sale normally. Why did they attend this particular sale? For two reasons—1, there was a good, attractire, well described lot of livestock and machinery; 2, bidders knew of the sale because it was advertised by a half page advertisement in the two Algona newspapers. This half page advertisement did several important things for the advertiser — it told of his sale, and it told the story in a way that made it important to the readers — it reached every farmer in the county and several hundred on the borderline of Kossuth. Prospective bidders knew the sale was important because it was advertised BIG. Too many advertisers, because they hold back a dollar or two oh an advertisement, think they have made a saving, but that dollar is the most expensive saving they could have made, because it cost them bidders. A good active bidder at any sale is worth $100. There is only one way to get bidders and that is to ask them to co me in a way which THEY think is important. Any farmer would give $10 to get a $100 bidder to his sale, yet many of them fail to see that they must make the prospective, bidder think the sale is good. An additional $10 spent on advertising will bring several times that amount of money in return through bids made the day of the sale. No sale is more important to a reader than it is to the advertiser. If the sale is not important enough to the farmer holding it to advertise in a sufficient way, then the bidder will feel it is not important to him. It is important to advertise in a paper that goes all over the county. Bidders are no longer friends and neghbors. Many drive 20, 80, 40, and often 50 miles to a farm sale. You must put your sale advertisement before ALL prospective bidders. 1)0 that by advertising in a county paper, or both county papers—one bidder may return several times the small cost of the advertisement. Mr. Farmer—think this over—Algona merchants advertise simply because they have found it good business to do so. They don't advertise because they like the paper—they advertise because the newspaper brings results by telling p respective buyers of their wares. A large advertisement is read often because it is big. People are curious to know what this man had to advertise. They know it is important to the advertiser, and therefore it must be important to them too. You are reading this advertisement because it is large enough to attract your attention, because the type is large enough for you to read comfortably, and because you are interested. Take a lesson from this when you come to have your farm sale advertisement inserted in the paper. . Advance Publishing Co Reaching 3400 Subscribers
