The DV Post 30 second TV spot
The air time for playing a commercial on the local Spectrum 1 cable TV channel is pretty reasonable. And so I made a 30 second commercial just for that using Doodly. I don't recall ever seeing a TV ad for video editing, so this was an experiment.
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 worked out to be $21 per showing. That is really, really cheap. The air time on network TV is much, much more. The average cost for 30 seconds on a major network is $115,000. The most expensive air time is during the Superbowl where to show a 30 second commercial just once costs over $5,000,000.
And the final result of this $504 experiment? ZIP. Nothing. Nobody contacted me. But it was fun to see this on my TV at home.
