TV Commercials...Resale Style

A Collection of Creativity

Members $10.00
Non Members $15.00

Sometimes, seeing what other people have done ignites a spark of creativity that gives you new ideas for your own shop. Sharing TV commercials generates a great deal of interest at Conference every year. So, we have gathered a collection of commercials from our members and are proud to introduce—TV Commercials...Resale Style.

Anyone producing a commercial—whether your first or your tenth—will benefit from viewing various techniques and styles used by other resalers. This collection of creativity is intended to help you decide what you like and what you don't—what you think will work for you and what won't. The DVD is indexed so you can easily note and return to those commercials you are interested in seeing again or showing to your production company.

As an added benefit, we included a montage with snippets of commercials that feature special techniques and styles. Preceding each example is a title page pointing out the features. This will familiarize you with terminology you can use to communicate with your production company.

The DVD contains 77 commercials and is 52 minutes long. However, we're not done yet! Packaged with the DVD is our booklet filled with tips on planning and producing an effective commercial, a member's story of how she created her store commercial, plus much more practical information on TV advertising.

TV Commercials . . . Resale Style will give you the incentive and encouragement to develop the perfect commercial for your business. You won't want to go to the kitchen for a snack during these commercials!
