Who Pays For
Who pays for the advertising? That was nn old con
undrum when Heck w3 a pup and as you no doubt know
Ilcck is a very old dog now.
- But then, as now, the conundrum had an answer. ( ,
And the answer is : Advertising pays for itself. ;
Which is to say that neither the consumer nor the deal
er pays for the advertising in either higher prices or low
ered quality. "
There's an illustration which has been going the
rounds for a long while now. It is worth repeating here.
X and Z are competitors in the manufacture of rubber
nipples for babies' feeding bottles. Both produce 100,000
nipples a year and neither advertise. The nipples cost
each manufacturer 12 cents each to make and they are
sold to the dealer for 14 cents. Thus each manufacturer
makes a profit of 2 cents on each nipple ho sells.
X determines to advertise and appropriates 1 cent on
each nipple sold and presently finds his market expanded
to a demand for 200,000 nipples a year.
When he gets to making 200,000 nipples a year he dis
covers that economies in manufacture thus made possible
make his factory cost 10 cents. So Wat instead of jpaking ,
2 cents on each nipple he's making 3 cents and selling
twice as many. , "
' ' .
So next year he increases his appropriation to 2 cents
per nipple, sells 300,000 and gets his factory cost down to
8 cents a profit of 4 cents and the price still remains
14 cents to the dealer.
Thus encouraged, the third year he increases his ad
. vertising appropriation to 4 cents for every nipple sold
and enjoys a distribution of 500,000 and through fur
ther economies made possible througn huge quantity pro
duction, ho gets the factory cost down to a bed-rock figure
of 5 cents per nipple. Then he decides that his profit is
too long and he cuts the price to the trade to 12 cents, 2
cents lower than the beginning price and makes 4 cents
Meanwhile Z continues his enterprise without advertis
ing and is found standing still his factory cost continues
, at 12 cents, profit 2 cents and the dealer's price 14 cents.
X is clearly in the commanding position he got there
through advertising. He sells his nipple to the trade for
2 cents less, which affords the dealer an opportunity to
make a longer profit and you can guess whose nipple he
buys and pushes. Meanwhile X is making 4 cents against
Z's 2 cents profit.
Thais the advertising paid for itself, gave dealer and
manufacturer a longer profit, cobt the consumer no more
, and probably in some cases less". : C '
