THE NEW RULES ABOUT ADVERTISING
To my friends who own businesses and wish to get their message
out to the public, here is a warning. If you are still spending your money on thirty and sixty second television commercials,
or radio commercials, or cable TV commercials, or in newspapers and in hand outs, you are still living in the dark ages.
People don't watch commercials anymore.
They can pass by commercials using their digital recorders, or if they are watching TV and not a digital recording, it is
likely that the viewers turn away from the TV to go to the bathroom, go to the microwave, reach for their phone, or yell for
And newspaper readership
is down, way down, and newspapers are literally smaller in both the number of pages and the size of pages and going out of
business. Yes, even the beloved Los Angeles Times has only a fraction of the circulation it used to have and its pages
are smaller as well. And what about radio? Well, do you have paper and pen handy to write down phone numbers that
you hear in radio commercials? And can you see what a radio advertiser is selling?
Are you even concentrating on the radio ads or are you concentrating on driving? I am sorry to be so blunt-- but that
is the reality in today's advertising marketplace.
consumers are, frankly, too smart and too busy to pay attention to traditional thirty
and sixty second commercials on the radio and on TV, and that includes cable TV.
But what media survives and deserves your advertising dollar today?
Well, you're looking at it -- the Internet and web sites such as this one. And one reason is that consumers now
"window shop on their computers" because it is faster and easier and much cheaper than getting in their cars and
driving to a store or to a mall.
another advertising method today that works are TV infomercials which, if crafted properly, can entertain while they
inform and sell your business service and products. We produce mini TV infomericals (one minute to 7 minutes long) that
are used in our Best Buys show and we produce stand-alone half hour infomercials for individual advertisers.
Recent studies show that one of
the fastest growing forms of advertising is video on websites. And yes, we produce videos for websites in addition to
the videos we produce for TV and Cable.
call our infomercials by a different name -- informercials
-- because we craft our infomercials to do more than contain info,
they also inform the viewer. And the style of many of our
infomercials follow "reality concepts," and we call this reality advertising. And it works because it is a mix of advertising and news.
You don't have
to be a genius to realize and accept that the advertising industry has changed. Heck, they're even singing about it
on YouTube and below please watch and listen to this song which is as up to date and accurate about changes in the advertising
business as any textbook or industry white paper analysis could be. After watching the video please continue to read
about our Internet video and infomercial production advertising services.
Thank you, Alan Mendelson
YES, WE ADVERTISE TO HELP OUR ADVERTISERS
To help you, our advertisers... we have various Internet, TV and other media promotional
and marketing campaigns. We have an extensive email list made up of TV viewers who signed up for our email updates and
we send out email blasts promoting our shows and our advertisers. We have active Twitter and Facebook accounts and we
have scores of other websites that link to the articles on our website. Higher traffic to our web site, www.alanbestbuys.com, also means a bigger TV audience.
And with our new weekly schedule that started in January 2010,
our "Best Buys" show now appears in TV listings, unlike our competition whose shows are listed as "paid programming"
and are broadcast maybe once or twice a month with no regular schedule or broadcast times.
A note about our recent shows: they included reports from many
home improvement companies. In fact, about half of our recent shows highlighted home improvement. Home improvement
and furniture are some of the most searched for subjects on our website.
