Big Advertising Pays for Paine’s Celery Compound


Big Advertising Pays for Paine’s Celery Compound

01 November 2015

Apple-Touch-IconAI did a post yesterday on Paine’s Celery Compound that revealed some super-sized advertising in various newspapers across United States. I would have to believe that taking full-page or almost full advertisements had a dramatic effect with the consumer who was being bombarded by every type of quack medicine, remedy, cure, bitters or tonic on the market. I especially enjoyed the testimonials from persons and dignitaries who probably never even tried the product like doctors, nurses, politicians, business tycoons, cabinet holders, sports figures, fire chiefs, preachers and of course mothers. You know, say something nice about the product and get your picture in the paper. The makers of Paine’s Celery Compound made millions.
