Transcript I support the goals of the IWY National Women's Conference andl I support Breakthrough's growth. Now, what can I do to help? The BREAKTHROUGH staff is now moving into the critical last days of preparation as we labor to produce THREE important big issues which will provide DAIL Y coverage of the IWY conference - November 18-21. The responsibilities of this task are enormous —because we normally operate as a monthly—working with a small staff and slender resources. Also, because we are keenly aware of our position in history as we document the most important women's meeting of the twentieth century. Much of the groundwork for our giant task has already been laid. 7 AChecklistfor Breakthrough Readers i You can help us sell advertising—even though you may think you know nothing about selling or whom to sell it to . . . Jin the critical matter of advertising, our own small staff is| working with volunteer sales people (taking time from their own careers) who have already worked wonders in getting advertisers signed on the dotted line for our special conference issues. Already listed on our advertising roster at press time were such names as ]Houston Lighting & Power ... Sears ... Saks ... Foley's ... Jamails Avis Rent-A-Car ... Associates in Growth ... Ms. Magazine most radio and television stations ... and many more ... [We've got a start - but we need help to provide assurance that we'll be able to pay our printing bill for 90,000 papers when it comes due. Here's where you can help... Think a minute. Are you in business tor yourself? Do you work for someone else who should buy an ad? Do you have a sister, mother, father, brother, friend or neighbor in business, or in a position of influence? Everybody does. And, in advertising sales of this type - getting in the "back door" lis far more effective than making an appointment at the front Jdoor. Our sales staff has discovered you can lose a lot of time |going through proper channels. |So - please put on your thinking cap and drop by our office at 1708 Rosewood to pick up an advertising brochure and advertising contracts. Or plan to attend one of our regular advertising meetings - held each Sunday at 6:00 and each Monday at 7:00 VVe'll be delighted to pay you a 15% commission on every sale pou complete. (That's $120 on a full page ad, so it's definitely (worth your time.) If for some reason you don't want to handle the sale yourself, bu wou do know a good prospect or two, give us a call and we'll take | fet from there. We have received letters of commendation and encouragement from all over the country,from members of the national women's press and from national conference commissioners. Gloria Steinem, Sissy Farenthold and Shere Hite are among those who have agreed to contribute their talents to our editorial content. The Houston Chronicle has granted permission to several of its reporters, some of whom are taking their own vacation time, to provide daily convention news coverage. We have twelve teams of reporters and photographers for the convention. & You can help as a feature writer, production artist, booth salesperson or circulation distributor . . . If you can contribute your skills and experience as a writer, artist pr help with circulation - to get our three important issues to all the right places at all the right times, we'll most gratefully welcome you aboard as a member of our special November staff. And if you're interested in booth sales at the conference, you should [know we'll be sharing our booth with Ms. magazine. 8 You can even contribute financially Frankly, we would actually prefer your time, talent, energy and [sales contacts to your money - BUT MONEY IS ONE MORE WA Y YOU CAN HELP. We are planning a "signature"ad section which will run under the headline "What kind of person reads Breakthrough?" — and we'd like to run just as many names of our tactual readers as possible. (This is an ideal way for out of town p-eaders to participate in this event.) If you'd like your signature to appear on this special souvenir page |(in all three daily November issues), just send us $10.00 and your signature. If you would like to be listed on our honor roll as a "sponsor," send $25.00 and your signature. To be listed as a "patron," send $50.00 or more, plus your signature. Patrons may also, if they wish, write as many as 50 words of greeting to convention participants and visitors which will be printed over their signatures. Sponsors may include as many as 25 words. All signatures should be written in BLACK INK on WHITE PAPER, and mailed immediately to Breakthrough, along with your check and greetings. Ruth and Neal Barrett of Barrett Associates advertising agency are coordinating this project — you may call them at 664-8055 for additional information, or for their free professional assistance in wording your message.
