IT HAS BEEN SAID
that half the money spent on advertising is wasted.
THAT PROBABLY WAS TRUE SIX YEARS AGO.
IT CERTAINLY IS NOT TRUE NOW.
TO THE AUDIT BUREAU OF CIRCULATION IS DUE
much of the credit for the difference.
SIX YEARS AGO SPACE WAS BOUGHT BY GUESSWORK
Now it is bought with a definite knowledge of circulation:
how many copies are printed, how they are distributed; how
many paid for and how many given away.
THE ADVERTISER WHO DOES NOT PROTECT HIMSELF
by asking to see the A. B. C. reports of the publications he
uses is reactionary and invites a return to the wasteful meth
ods of former years. . ,
THE EAST 0REG0NIAN IS A MEMBER OF THE A. B. C.
' Its advertisers are fully protected.'
