Share on Buffer Share. Direct response television DRTV is any television advertising that asks consumers to respond directly to the company — usually either by calling an toll-free telephone number , sending an SMS message, or by visiting a web site. This is a form of direct response marketing.
There are two types of direct response television, short form, and long form. Short form is any DRTV commercial that is two minutes or less in length.
Long form direct response is any television commercial longer than two minutes. This was the accepted term for an infomercial from until "infomercial" came into vogue in The most common time period available for purchase as "long form" infomercial media is 28 minutes, 30 seconds in length.
Long form is used for products that need to educate the consumer to create awareness and typically have a higher price. A relatively small amount or media time may be purchased in lengths less than 30 minutes but more than 2 minutes.
Five minutes is the most commonly available time of these lengths. Direct response television campaigns are commonly managed by specialist Direct Response or DRTV agencies with a full range of strategic, creative, production, media, and campaign services. They may also be managed by media buying agencies who specialize in direct response. In either case, these agencies purchase two types of air-time in two ways.
The first is to purchase off of a station or broadcast network's rate-card for time. The second is to purchase remnant airtime, which is time that stations were not able to sell, and need to fill quickly or cheaply to avoid broadcasting dead-air.
This is cheaper for agencies, but they have less control over when their commercials will run. As DRTV has gained presence outside of its start in the United States, local agencies have developed in many countries. Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for your help, tips, and freebies. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I appreciate you posting this! It really does make it sound more simple. I really need to lose a few pounds 30 would be great!
Thanks for the inspiration!! Amanda, thank you for such a detailed description of what has made you successful! This is so do-able. And I have exactly 30 pounds to lose, as well! Congratulations, what a great story! This is the way I want to lose weight! Just eating regular food, in moderation and exercising! You should feel as proud as you look!!! Congratulations to you on the sweet success brought on by all of your hard work. You are an inspiration.
I really want to lose weight too! I appreciate the tips. I can definitely use them! I am also a long time reader. You and I have exchanged a few emails back and forth. I am ready to print your blog entry and hang it on my fridge.
Can I ask you ONE question though? What are your thoughts on exercise? Did you exercise at all? Thank you so much for sharing your story! It is very inspiring and encouraging! Huge congrats to you! You look amazing, as always! Amanda — I was one of those Jenny Craig girls. I lost 50 lbs in and promptly got pregnant with twins! However, I just could not justify the expense.
Your plan sounds absolutely doable and a great alternative to Jenny Craig. One thing I did learn while on the Jenny plan was to use vegetables when you need a snack. My favorite snack was carrots, celery and salsa!
I did not really follow a regimented exercise program- I do have the dogs, so I take them outside to play, or go for walks and hikes- and I also have a stationary bike that I like to ride while watching TV. She will kick your fanny! We also have Wii Fit love the yoga and hula hoop game!
But I do credit the weight loss more to my diet changes rather than the exercise- cause I had been doing that all along! My ob-gyn even went so far as to say, you can spend an hour on the elliptical machine and burn enough calories to make up for a single serving bag of chips. You look fantastic, by the way! Way to go Amanda! So enjoyed this blog. Blessings to you this Thanksgiving season! You look great and you have inspired me. I have gradually put on quite a bit of weight over the last few years.
I have had a terrible time trying to lose it. I was going to a gym and working really hard, but losing very little. I am going to try what you did. I need something that I can fit into my very crazy, busy life. What a blessing that you sent this out! Thanks so much for sharing. First off, I want to say congratulations! I think this is truly amazing! I am very glad you shared this.
There was a lot that I actually learned from this blog post. You look truly amazing! I am fortunately thin, but unfortunately not that healthy. This has inspired me to talk to my hubby as well and become more of a healthier couple: Thanks for sharing hon!
I look forward to many more posts! Thank you for the inspiration! I know it is all about diet and exercise but sometimes when those cravings hit, it is hard to remember.
Thank you again — keep it up! Way to go, you have inspired me to get motivated and get healthy!!! Thanks, Amanda… your blog never fails to amaze! Amanda, you are awesome! If I could even get down 5 lbs by Christmas, I would be thrilled!
Thanks for the inspiration Sister! Water intake…still working on that one. Heard it makes a HUGE difference though! That is great Amanda. I bet you crave the water now that is what happened to me. I did Weight Watchers and went from an 18 to a 2 was a 0 when I started dating my husband…guess that was a shocker for him — hee hee. Kept it off for over 7 years… I recently gained lbs. Amanda — you look wonderful.
Thanks for the inspiration. I may try to get back into that. It makes counting calories so much easier. Thanks for the motivation! Keep up the great work! I think I just need to start paying attention to what I am doing and this made it so simple! I think it is something we all know — but just needed someone to remind us that it can be done! You look so happy and healthy. I have some special days coming up early next year, and I have time to get on this before those arrive! We just LOVE you and all the creative spirit and energy you share with all of us!
Lisa put this so well! Such a gracious hostess, even from afar. Oh my goodness you are looking fabulous!!! Hopefully he will come home to a svelte new wife!! Thank you for sharing this amazing and inspiring story!! Well, I have to say first off that this is incredibly inspirational.
Thank you for sharing this with us! I really do appreciate you sharing this with us. I hope to hear you post more about your journey? Amanada, I must say…. I lost my job a year or so ago and I am still unemployed!
I have been depressed, I have isolated myself, and as I said, I physically feel uncomfortable. I think everyone is different. Thank you for sharing!! That is very inspiring! I do wonder though, what did you drink before switching over to water entirely? Thank you so much for sharing the details of your weight loss. It is so hard to do it on you own, but your specifics really create a light at the end of the tunnel. I am totally inspired!
I started something similar to this but I let it slip by. I stuck with it for about a week and a half and then just went back to my normal routine. Thank you for this. I am going to the store after work and I am buying those VitaCraves!
I can give you my secret for weight loss. Oh, and when the second child comes along, see if you have time to eat for yourself! Plus, running after them too!
