Frequently Asked Questions
1. When should I use TV commercials to promote my brand, products or services?
The purpose of a TV commercial is to increase brand awareness and recognition as well as to enhance brand image. When launching a new product or service, a TV commercial creates a better first impression and increases the trustworthiness of your brand. While many may perceive TV commercials as a less influential advertising channel in the digital era, TV commercials actually create customer confidence – for instance, after watching a TV commercial, if you see the same video ad or print ad on other promotional channels, you will find the brand more trustworthy.

2. What is the production pipeline for TV commercials?
Creativity is the soul of an advertisement. If you want to create a great TV commercial that is the talk of the town, creativity is the key ingredient. Our professional team of specialists in TV commercial production start by developing a creative concept based on the key features of your product or service. After the script and storyboard are finalized, we will proceed to an array of pre-production preparation tasks, including conducting auditions and casting, booking venues, scheduling a pre-production meeting with director, photographer and gaffer etc. and working out a detailed shooting plan. After the post-production stage, you may choose the most suitable TV channel, broadcasting time, frequency, length etc. for your commercial ad according to your product or service feature and the viewing habits of your target audience. By and large, the TV commercial production process involves a great deal of planning and coordination throughout the entire production pipeline.
3. How many types of TV commercials are there?
There are various types of TV commercials. To make the most of your advertising budget, make sure you opt for the most effective TV ad type to reach your target audience. For celebrity endorsement, you may want to use testimonial ads to leverage their star appeal and reach their fan base. The storytelling format can also be used to resonate with the audience and leave a lasting impression. To capture audience attention, you may use analogies in a humorous or exaggerated way to make a clear and powerful statement of the product or service feature. Audience is sometimes left with an emotional cliffhanger before a product or service is disclosed.
