LOS ANGELES, CA, September 17, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In the wake of Google's shutdown of its 5-year experiment in self-service TV ads, the award-winning internet-based discount TV advertising agency CheapTVSpots.com welcomes former Google customers with a low-cost, hassle-free way to advertise on television.
Cheap TV Spots, founded in 2001, offers award-winning TV commercials by its experienced in-house production team for low, flat rates, and provides targeted local, regional, and national media buying services with no additional commissions tacked onto the negotiated network rate, or complicated forms to manage.
"We're excited to welcome advertisers to true, full-fledged TV advertising. So far, we've had a number of former Google TV Ads users ask us to help them create a TV campaign," says Cheap TV Spots spokesperson Jim Whelk. "They're thrilled to find that we're a one-stop shop, offering both excellent, custom TV commercial production and agency-style media buying service."
CheapTVSpots.com reaches all TV households across the U.S. and Canada including all Cable TV, Broadcast TV, Satellite TV, and Telco households. Altogether, the CheapTVSpots.com universe has a total reach of over three times the number of households in Google's former TV system.
"One thing that always set us apart from Google is our amazingly good, award-winning in-house TV commercial production service. Our thorough understanding of production gives us a considerable edge with the networks when it comes to getting clearance to air," adds Whelk.
In a brief blog post, Google announced the shutdown of its 5-year-old experimental TV ad selling platform, "Google TV Ads," the last of its attempted forays into traditional media sales (they had abandoned similar efforts in newspaper and radio advertising in 2009). Google indicated it would refocus on online.
Whelk says, "Even in this age of multi-screen households, the vast majority of free time is spent with TV. Across-the-board, research by Nielsen and other respected authorities reveals that TV remains the venue of choice for entertainment and information."
