The Effectiveness of Advertisement
Some businessmen were talking about advertising
on TV excitedly. As none of them had ever done it before, every one had his point of view.
At this moment, Mr. Grey came by
. Grey was a car dealer
and he had once made an advertisement.
"What are you talking about?" Mr. Grey asked.
"Does advertisement work or not?" one of the businessmen asked.
"Oh, yes, it works very fast," Mr. Grey said. " I once advertised for my watch-dog
and offered a reward of $100."
"Did you get the dog back?"
"No, but that very night three of my cars were stolen."
