Why Does TV Advertising Work?

While it cannot be denied that TV advertising is the most effective advertising medium around, at least, not from the office of Thousand Media; there have been tons of evidence that help back this claim on the internet through the years and it just doesn’t seem to be diminishing – no matter the online platform’s continued rise in popularity. However, the question I am asking today is: why does Television Advertising work so well?

While online content rises in popularity with the online video streaming websites such as Netflix and Hula and social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, you would expect the impacts of TV advertisements to plummet in their sales due to consumer/audience reaches but it never did. In actuality, digital marketing cannot make up the reach TV delivers on its own. Digital is and should be used in a way that compliments TV advertising to form a more effective multimedia strategy (but we will talk about that in a later blog post).

What makes TV Advertising work so well, I believe, is the way it focuses purely on the targeted, correct consumers for the brand, services or company that is being advertised by showcasing the advertisement in the peak times the targeted demographic would be watching. Not only this, but it is the most effective way to not only maintain and secure new clients than any other advertising medium but to increase profit through ROI! A recent study shows that with every £1 invested in Television Advertising, £1.79 is returned to the investor which is above any other form of advertising medium!!

Overall, TV Advertising is a fantastic way to advertise your campaigns, it allows you to reach a broader audience (87% of people over 18!) like no other single advertising medium while giving you the chance to tell your message with a compelling story, instantly engaging with your customers in innovative ways – what’s not to love?

Paingone Plus Back On TV Now!

By | Advertising, DRTV, Thousand Media, Thousand Media Updates, Videos | No Comments

Our recent advert, Paingone Plus is now on TV but you, you lucky devil get to watch it right here on our blog – huzzah!

If you’ve never heard of Paingone Plus or you merely just need a refresher; Paingone Plus is a clinically proven, leading portable device for “on-the-go” pain-relief. It’s older counterpart Paingone sold over 1.4 million units worldwide!

To fit with the theme of this advertisement (which you can watch above if you haven’t already), we decided to shoot everything against a green screen as opposed to filming on location with the help from our lovely friends over at The Camden Studio. Doing this, we were able to maintain our promise to create top quality advertisements for only a fraction of the cost while achieving fantastic results that we were all extremely happy with.

In the tradition of DRTV, the ad presents a spokesman explaining the Paingone Plus product to the consumers sitting at home for it then to be confirmed by the testimonials given from the happy customers. This is in keeping with the original Paingone advertisement that we created, which you can rewatch here, where you will see that we used the same elements that worked successfully for the marketing of the original product which caused an incredible increase in sales.

When creating a pharmaceutical advertisement, or rather any advertisement, it is required for you to follow ASA and CAP Codes and Regulations. This helps us make sure that anything that we send out to be streamed to the public isn’t unintentionally harmful, offensive or misleading to the consumer and the viewer.
