Television Advertising Made Simple
If you want to make more money in your business, one great way of doing it is with television advertising. TV advertising is something that a lot of business owners attempt to do, but only a few of them have success with it. If you would like to propel and take your business to the next level, then I think TV advertising would be in your best interest.
Why do I recommend TV advertising? Well simply because it works. There are all kinds of business owners in my city who are using TV to promote their products and services. And they do have a special technique for making it work for them. It’s all within the marketing approach when they come across your ad.
You see television advertising is merely regular advertising – but it’s just on TV, and not in print. So you should practice the same principles of direct response marketing when putting your pitch on the TV screen. Direct response simply means that instead of brand advertising and “getting your name out there”, you’re holding your advertising accountable and are testing and tracking your results.
But before you run your first ad on TV, you should do your homework. Find out which competitors have run TV ads in the past, and who are running these ads now. You want to see which business owners are still running their TV ads, because more than likely, if they’re running it for a long time, more than likely it’s being successful for them. So this is something that you will want to look at.
Once you’ve determined which advertisers in your niche are having success with their TV advertising, you want to emulate the successful parts of their ad. This means that you should find the best points about their ads as possible, all while making your ad unique. This is a classic form of doing your homework.
So what should you say in your television ad? Well you want to have a strong introduction, a strong story or sales message, and a powerful close. Your goal is to keep your viewers “locked in” to what they are saying, and to prevent them from turning the channel on you.
One thing that you will want to make sure of is to offer more than one mode of response. Include your website address, phone number, and fax, and even mailing address. You never know which way your prospect wants to respond to you. So offer more than one way to contact you.
Television advertising is everywhere nowadays. They’re 30-second to 1-minute ads in the day time, and then 30-minute infomercials that come on late at night. You should make it a point to study these ads and see what makes them so successful.
If you can follow out this plan, your chances of business success will put you on top of the pile. Trust me, I would know. I’ve seen tons and tons of people have success with television advertising, and now it’s time that you start using it yourself.
Good luck with making these tips work for you today.
