The DV Post 30 second TV spot

The air time for commercials on the Spectrum 1 cable TV channel is pretty reasonable.  And so I made a 30 second commercial just for that using Doodly.


This spot below was played for about one month during prime time in Santa Ana and Costa Mesa. I purchased the minimum of 24 showings.  The price for that was $504, which works out to be $21 per showing.  FYI: The air time to show a 30 second commercial once during the Superbowl costs over $5,000,000.

I don't recall ever seeing a TV ad for video editing, so this was an experiment.

And the final result of this experiment?  ZIP.  Nothing.

So this became a kind of expensive fun moment for me to see this on my home TV.  I was able to see it a bunch of times.  Spectrum gave me a schedule of the times it should have appeared.  Some of the times were accurate.  Some were way off.  Oh well.  So much for TV advertising.
