80. 1920s PHILIPPINES FREE PRESS CHRISTMAS ADVERTISEMENTS


The Christmas holiday season is the busiest and  most profitable time for every corporation. In order to boost their sales they need to advertise in a way that will give your company an advantage over others. 

Advertising is still a key part in getting consumers to buy these products, even though Christmas is the biggest time of year when people spend their hard-earned money. Since we know people usually buy more around the holidays, it is the part of the company to put out catchy advertisements to pull in consumers to their product. The more money and effort you put into a good advertisement, the better chance you have of luring in consumers. 

These advertisements are from the newspaper The Philippines Free Press on Dec 22, 1923. It is the oldest news weekly in the Philippines, established in 1907 which was founded by Mr. Robert McCulloch Dick. 

Here is a glimpse of Christmas advertisements back then.
