When you've reached a reader with your message, you've got their attention and their concentration• Their complete concentration. Nobody ever shined their shoes while they read the news. Can radio and television advertis- ing make such a claim? No way. Too many times those advertising vehicles are little more than back- ground noise• When people turn to their paper, they turn there with interest. Which means that's where your advertising message needs to be. With all the choices available, it's difficult deciding how best to advertise your business. But everything becomes a little simpler when you remember one rule.
