Excerpt:
Advertising is not merely a method of diverting trade away from the merchant or manufacturer who does not advertise. Its function is not merely to pull business away from unprogressive competitors. It has "news" value as well as psychological power.

It not only supplies regularly. information.a..at stated periods" concerning the best and most economical methods of supplying the needs of a normal and comfortable existence, but, operating through well established psycho- logical laws upon the human mind, it gradually im- plants in multiplied mentalities the idea that certain things are needed which were never before^ regarded as necessary to human contentment or happiness. will enlarges and_expands. the horizon .of .. man's daily life and, experience by bringing to his attention new commodities designed for his comfort and convenience without which he would have been perfectly happy in a state of blissful ignorance; but, having. learned of their existence, he cannot find it in his heart to be happy or contented until he possesses them. 

It is the constant reiteration of the so-called "selling arguments" in connection with a product that convinces and finally impels the reader to purchase. The constant dropping of the water of publicity gradually wears away the stone of indifference. The human mind is so constructed that it is appreciably affected by repetition— and, after all, advertising is only repetition.
