Our Story and Philosophy
Why TV advertising, in the Digital Age?
Of all media, television is by far the most watched screen, and the medium consumers continue to prefer for learning about new products and services.
Advances in digital technology have created an era of unprecedented complexity... and a niche of opportunity for businesses big and small. Television has evolved and embraced the digital age. Television today is anything but "traditional," with evolving technical formats, diverse delivery platforms, and increased interactivity. Through this new era, we continue to redefine the role of a media agency.
One big thing hasn't changed -- the appeal of TV as the preferred entertainment and information medium.
Who are we?
Founded in 2001, we've been making television commercials for fun and profit for well over a decade, and we're the originators of the internet-based TV ad agency model. Our team members bring their decades of experience from television studios and movie sets. We have one foot in the world of Hollywood filmmaking and the other in Television production.
Why did we start CheapTVSpots.com?
Back at the turn of the millennium we were just like you, seeking the best way to promote our own products (except, of course, that we had a head start, since we were already film and TV pros). Fed up with the cost and slow response of the big retail ad agencies - and not grooving to the cheesy cable TV ad productions - we knew we could do WAY BETTER.
We decided to build THE BETTER AD AGENCY, from the ground, up.
This BETTER AD AGENCY we built had to be CHEAP - FAST - and IN CONTROL. It had to be a real service, not just a do-it-yourself form, or cookie-cutter ad factory. The TV commercials had to be of unparalleled excellence. No schlock. No canned, fill-in-the-blank hooey.
Why the funny name, "Cheap TV Spots"?
The web was young, and so were we. We said, "What do most businesses really want in a TV advertising agency - a fancy, expensive-sounding sounding name, or value for their dollar?" We wanted a name that's bold, funny, yet explains exactly what we do.
We believe that TV commercial spots are, hands-down, the most engaging and memorable advertising medium for small, local, medium sized, and start-up businesses. Statistics back us up. The average American household now watches well over 8 hours of television per day, up from previous years, and people actually spend way more time with TV than any other screen, according to Neilsen Media Research.
We've knocked down the biggest barrier for small and new businesses who desire to advertise on television - the complexity and cost of producing a professional level TV commercial. How? With our economical, affordable, superior quality Cheap TV Spots!
Why would experienced filmmakers and television professionals want to make TV commercials? It's fun! As prominent advertising theorist and all around media guy Marshall McLuhan once said, "Advertising is the greatest art form of the twentieth century." This grows even more true as we move through the New Millennium.
TV commercials have always been the most creative and dynamic form of advertising, but that creativity used to be reserved only for the "Big Guys." UNTIL NOW.
We give you our genuine, Hollywood-style creativity for your television commercial production.
