Gaining that understanding became the primary goal of the new Division of Commercial Research the company opened in 1911. Edward Bok might have had the rare ability to read Journal subscribers’ letters like tea leaves, Post editor George Horace Lorimer might have had a keen intuition in assembling editorial material, and Cyrus Curtis himself might have had the ability to spot both talent and commercial possibilities. The company’s advertising representatives said they needed something more tangible to work with, though, especially if this ongoing expansion was to succeed.
No clashing of interests. 38 Some agents did not buy that, and they worried that Curtis was trying to muscle in and save the money that went toward their commissions—usually 10 percent of the advertising bill. Those doubts grew during the summer of 1913, when Curtis broke from established standards and unilaterally changed its policy toward agencies. 40 Advertising was blamed for, among other things, increasing the cost of living, discouraging competition, and forcing stores to carry brand-name goods that often had lower profit margins.
A NEW ERA OF BUSINESS 33 The ploy worked. Stewart & Clark signed a contract for two pages of advertising space in the Post each month and was eventually forced to buy Warner, once a weak and declining competitor, for $2 million. Advertising for automobiles and accessories in the Post continued to escalate, swelling the size of the magazine and making the Post the publication for marketing automobiles. By 1914, the Post carried 68 percent of all automobile advertising in the more than thirty competing magazines that Curtis tracked, and by 1923, it carried 83 percent of the more than $17 million that automakers spent on advertising in weekly magazines.
