Buying Air Time For Your New Cheap TV Spots® Commercial
It should not cost you more to buy your air time through us, or any media buyer, because the cable and TV stations give agencies a discount that they typically do not give you as an individual advertiser. Agencies like ours are compensated for services via that discount. But we know you'd like a bit of control of the process, and that's why we help you to learn how to do it yourself!
You, our TV production client, can benefit from our network connections, knowledge of television air time, and resources.
Our team will notice when spot prices are high or low, and can recommend channels, programs and time slots that maximize your campaign investment.
Have a TV commercial already made elsewhere, and just want to air it?

Start with an Ad Evaluation: FIND OUT IF YOUR AD IS READY FOR PRIME TIME! $99. Includes detailed report.
IMPORTANT: These days, networks are turning down more new ads than ever (they always love ours, though!)
We've reviewed lots of commercials submitted for airing that are, quite frankly, not ready for prime time (or any time). Seems like everybody and their dog has access to cheap video equipment, and the web is littered with part-time, weekend videographers with a boatload of poor taste, and zero broadcast TV experience. Others are exerienced cameramen, or worked in TV years ago, but aren't up on all aspects of TV commercial production and technical standards.
Networks love our Cheap TV Spots® productions because we know the current technical and content standards -- and we build every ad to meet those standards.
Why you need ad evaluation: In a word, "CLEARANCE." All networks conduct a review of each ad before airing, and say "no" to those that don't comply. Networks cannot legally air a commercial that does not meet certain technical specifications and content standards. Our Evaluation helps you reduce the chance of rejection by working the bugs out before we present the ad to the networks.
Broadcast TV standards are not what you think. A large number of video producers today assume they're getting things right, yet fail to comply with FCC technical rules or are ignorant of laws and customs governing content. Shooting with a brand new camera and editing with new software isn't enough. There's more to it. A LOT MORE...
The networks love to air good-looking ads - it makes the network look good, and keeps people from changing channels. Crappy ads? Not so much.
We offer a low-cost TV commercial evaluation service to closely, objectively examine your ad, and advise you in how to bring your ad up to broadcast standards before the networks see it. We check technical standards, as well as those harder-to-gauge aspects, like broadcast acceptability, and effectiveness. Some commercials just plain do not meet community standards (despite what you saw on that "Girls Gone Ga-Ga" commercial). Other ads, made by amateurs, simply don't get the point across. Trying to air such ads just results in frustration for you. Let us help!
Not sure where you should air?
Cheap TV Spots® is here to help, with network and schedule (time, place, and frequency) recommendations.
People often ask us the same questions:
OKAY. Let's answer these.
Airwave Orchestration Service - Targeted Air Time Campaign Consultation that helps you understand how media buying works so you can make better decisions and save money.
AUDIENCE TARGETING - Let's strategize! We can help you understand and figure out how to reach the most important audience for your product, and use your air time budget wisely. We look at your product, audience, and budget, and fine tune an approach for your campaign goals.
AIR ANYWHERE - We're NATIONWIDE! For over a decade, we've helped clients get on the air locally, regionally, and nationally - NOT just one cable TV or broadcast station, or a batch of low power stations that nobody watches.
WITHIN BUDGET - Many agencies won't even return your call unless you have $60,000 per month to spend on air time. We're not like that. Not only will we talk to you, we'll explain the process so you become a well-informed customer, and understand our recommendations for your campaign.
NO LONG-TERM CONTRACTS - Unlike many other agencies, we won't lock you into a long-term monthly billing cycle. We'll help you understand your markeplace, and set you on the right path.
AIR TIME RESEARCH - Research is a time-intensive endeavor. We offer our research services to non-clients who are creating a marketing budget or business plan, as well as to folks with an ad they're ready to air.
We can help you explore the cable, broadcast or satellite outlets where your ad could be aired. We offer a low-cost, custom service for those who need to find out rates in a particular area or on a specific network, or who would like an air time schedule that reflects current rates. Because air time research is a time-intensive process and we want to offer you high quality information, we ask for a small fee.
Note: Air time is a commodity. The rates provided for a particular network or program do not guarantee that the quoted air time will be available for that price in the future. Estimates do not necessarily reflect the future price or guarantee the availability of future air time. The networks decide whether an ad is cleared to air and at what price when the completed TV commercial is submitted and approved.
Our Air Time Research service starts at only $99 per network, daypart or show.
