TV Advertising Wins the Day, and it’s not Close

TV Advertising WinsTV advertising wins the day when it comes to automotive advertising – and advertising in general. While the Internet is without question an ever-emerging force, there has never been anything quite as effective as an expertly crafted TV commercial for an automotive dealer.

Want proof that TV advertising wins? A recent report prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers for the Interactive Advertising Bureau showed that, while online advertising brought in a record $42.7 million in 2013, it pales in comparison to the $74.5 billion sum spent on broadcast and cable TV. 

Why TV Advertising Wins the Day

Why is this number so big? Advertisers (automotive dealers included) realize that TV advertising wins because Americans are glued to their television sets. Recent Nielsen data published in February shows Americans watched an astounding 185 hours of television in December 2013. That’s six hours more than the previous year … and nearly seven times more than the amount of time people spent on their computers.

It’s precisely why major companies like Yahoo, Amazon and Microsoft are increasing their TV spending, and why JKR Automotive Advertising often recommends a TV advertising campaign to its clients. Of course, each client’s situation is different for a variety of reasons that include budget and media market.
