TV commercials are now widely spread all over the world. A typical TV advertisement lasts from 15 to 30 seconds. Specialists consider this time perfect to deliver the most important information about the product to the customer and encourage him to buy it. Such advertisement duration is not annoying for the client, so it increases the chance that he will be interested in the promoted product or service.
The effectiveness of ads is defined by the increase of demand after their appearance on television. Promotion researches show that original and unusual commercials attract more attention than other advertisements. For example, a promotional video that contains a joke or a slogan in verse usually brings more new customers than a regular commercial. However, you should always remember the words of David Ogilvy, who was one of the best promotion experts of the 20th century: “The purpose of advertising is not to entertain the audience but to sell your products to it”.
Advertisements are considered an effective means to deliver the information about your product or service to the customer since the first promotional video appeared in the cinema in the 1940s. The current global trend shows that TV and online commercials are the most promising directions of the promotion industry. In 2015 the volume of online video commercials market in the United States was about $7.46 billion. According to the forecasts of Jefferies Company, in 2017 it will reach $17 billion. Similar expectations are relevant for the rest of national advertisement markets.
The effectiveness of TV ads is explained by the fact that they combine audio and visual effects. A typical promotional video shows the customer how useful (cool, fashionable, etc.) the product is, and the narrations tell about its benefits. The combination of these two effects makes the client buy the product.
