SoundView Group Direct Response TV, Radio, Online Video Capabilities

  1. 1. Demand Generation:Direct Response TV, Radio, and Online
  2. 2. Company Description The SoundView Group is a full-service marketing agency that services innovative players in both B2C and B2B markets. Strategically our expertise is in creation of key marketing messages and demand generation. We help companies execute through ROI-positive Direct Response Advertising Campaigns (Direct Response Television and Radio, and Online Video). Our Mission: Create compelling advertisements, make efficient media buys, and rapidly and profitably scale demand generation efforts.
  3. 3. Ask yourself: Is your company a good fit for Offline Direct Response Advertising? Do you want to reach a bigger audience; one that currently just isn’t searching for (or seeing you) online? Has your SEO, SEM, and online display advertising been honed to the point where further optimization will not significantly increase visits/calls? Do you want to drastically increase the credibility of your company? Will describing your product/service benefits in a more evocative medium than a couple of lines of text or a banner ad make customers sit up and take notice? Are you in a place (in terms of your conversion capabilities) where you can take advantage of massive scale efficiencies?
  4. 4. If so, it makes sense to consider DRTV and National Direct Response Radio Direct Response Television and Radio Advertising (Drive to Web/Phone), in combination with effective conversion funnels, has been proven to rapidly scale businesses at compelling CPAs For companies at a certain stage, DRTV/Radio can be a game-changer The price of entry (creative as well as media) is usually much lower with SoundView than expected; and our experience minimizes your risk as you test the medium(s) 95% of companies who find success in offline direct response advertising indicate they wish they had tested it sooner SOUNDVIEW SPECIALIZES IN Hyper-Efficient National Cable DRTV National/Regional Radio Google TV Advertising

  11. 11. Direct Response Radio:A stepping stone or complement to DRTV Radio spots are less expensive to produce than TV – they can range from $250 to $2,500 National Radio (News and Talk) is the best way to efficiently target your audience– versus buying music formats The average listener spends 8 hours per week listening to radio Radio ad time is extremely affordable, and there is a great deal of unsold inventory – test budgets can range from $10,000 to $20,000 weekly Radio radically extends your reach – and makes SEM that much more effective (2009 Arbitron)

  13. 13. One last thing to consider in 2011 – Online Video For your website it’s becoming table stakes Affordable – low cost of production Multi-functional – Entertains, inspires, sells, tells a story, explains your product/service Personal connection – Creates a proxy for face-to-face interaction by injecting some energy & excitement into otherwise static pages For distribution on the web, mobile, place-based media Standalone video ad unit, Pre & Post roll video (:15 & :30), etc. Viral – turns customers/prospects into sellers with an easily spreadable video that can be distributed almost anywhere online, especially on social networking sites Added benefit - bolsters your organic search rankings
