TV Commercial Video Production - What You Get

Get a COMPLETE, READY-TO-AIR TV commercial for one low flat fee

You get a national quality, 30-second, ready-to-air TV commercial for one low, flat fee. Everything's included. You won't rack up an hourly rate. Choose from the super-low-cost Start-Up, full-featured, value-priced Rapid-Ad, hands-on Classic, or one of our traditional agency style options.

ALL ORIGINAL CUSTOM VIDEO PRODUCTIONS... NO TEMPLATES! - We NEVER do a template ad. Why? They're just too generic to be effective. Your business is unique - so your ad should be unique. That's why every one of our commercials is a creative, custom-crafted production.It's our Freshness Guarantee. Template ads are often CAPTIVE ADS. Some companies, especially the low-ball, online do-it-yourself websites and template ad companies, make an ad a little too cheap... It's captured in their system and you can ONLY air it through them! Once they lock you in, they charge you lots more for air time - 20% to 800% more (we checked!). You could end up going over budget and getting poor results because your template TV commercial sucked and your ad dollar didn't go nearly as far as it could.

EXPLAINER VIDEO - We have a unique formula for getting more mileage out of your Explainer Video.

Explainer Videos, sometimes called explanation videos, are usually longer and slower paced than a TV ad, but often can work double-duty for your brand marketing or Direct Response campaign. We can transform your explainer into Broadcast Standard format (for length, technical spec, message, etc.), so they can actually air on TV as 30-second or 1-minute TV commercial messages.

BROADCAST-READY - Quality Checked! Each TV commercial we produce is thoroughly checked for technical quality and airability. We adhere to the latest broadcast standards for image and sound production.

Our Super-Secret, Streamlined System™ is more than just our super scripting, crisp images, great music and professional voiceover. Your TV commercial is professionally architected for uniqueness and impact. These are real TV ads, made the old fashioned way in our professional production studio.
