Over the last few years, your middle-sized printing company has focused heavily in internet-based marketing techniques and have been slowly – but steadily – growing. However, you may want to consider television advertisements – particularly focused ones – because these ads still reach a surprisingly high audience that can convert you into big business.

Why Television Still Matters

In this day of online everything, it can be easy to forget that the old school methods still work. And while online advertising is critical for your printing business's success – particularly if you can gain new customers this way with ordering forms – you shouldn't ignore television. For example, All Business states that television advertisements:

  • Reach a larger range of people more quickly than other advertisements
  • Find viewers at their most attentive, often when they're relaxing at the end of a work day
  • Create a complex advertising platform that uses multiple sensory elements
  • Portray your business in the best possible light by showcasing real people

And while TV ads have disadvantages such as a higher budget and a more difficult production schedule – which includes scripting and hiring actors – these steps are more than worth it if you can successfully find an audience. However, you need to learn how to target your printing company's ads in a way that attract the most attention.

Capturing Your Audience's Attention

Trying to capture an audience with a television ad isn't just a random luck-of-the-draw situation. In fact, you need to make sure that you carefully focus your ads in a way that will capture the attention of people who may use your printing business. These steps include how you must:

  • Identify Your Audience – Are you trying to appeal to DIY authors or people holding parties who need posters and other graphic design elements?
  • Figure Out When They Watch – Most people watch television when they get home from work and while eating supper, so aim for these times.
  • Detail Your Services – Create a simple, but comprehensive, list of all of your printing services and show them done in the ad to give your audience an insight.

For a printing company, it is also important to focus heavily on the quality of your printing materials, such as high-quality ink and printing beds. Make sure that you let the audience know that your services are inexpensive and yet of the best quality. Doing so improves the chances of your audience-targeted TV advertising making a big success on the market.
