Show Debut Marks Milestone in TV Advertising, Delivering Affordable, Accessible Advertising to the Masses

GLENDALE ‘s Tele-Marketplace is pleased to announce that it recently officially launched its new and innovatory advertising service making it the first and only television program that offers classified advertising to local markets in Southern California that reaches over 14 million households each night.

Launched in early December on KVMD-TV, Tele-Marketplace is a groundbreaking and premiere service that offers on-air classified ads in a unique hour long TV show setting. The channel is the only TV show of its kind that airs classifieds advertisemen’s up to 20 seconds in length, divided into nine categories: announcemen’s, automobiles, business opportunities, employment, events, items for sale, real estate for rent and for sale, professional services, and wanted ads. It also offers a special section of business directories, for customers who prefer to advertise static images of their business cards, or promotional postcards.

Tele-Marketplace creator, Bianca Manoukian, believes that this new concept of television classified advertising is the most effective, multi-tiered, and cost-effective approach for advertisers to directly connect with their potential consumers. “In this volatile economy, one of the first costs that businesses either trim or cut, in order to reduce their costs, is advertising, yet knowing full well, that no advertising, translates into a loss in customers and revenue. Tele-Marketplace helps businesses reach their prospective customers for a lot less money, than television, newspaper or online advertising,” stated Manoukian. “Advertisers only spend pennies a day for the opportunity to advertise in a classified format, accompanied by optional photos.”

This pioneering classified advertising program opens a new and landmark chapter in television advertising history. Through KVMD TV Station, Tele-Marketplace covers 87 different cities in Southern California on cable networks such as TimeWarner, Charter, Comcast, Mediacom, RCN, Wave Broadband, as well as Direct TV, Dish Network. Tele-Marketplace can be viewed from Big Bear to Ojai, in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties, seven nights a week on TV and 24 hrs a day on the web both in a format of webcast and print.

As technologies and consumers themselves become hyper-developed, the “traditional” advertising methods are changing, on-line marketing has taken over and web casting is leading the way in reaching out to the public. To augment this Tele-Marketplace’s unique format incorporates several special segmen’s employing a variety of entertaining events as well as a series of trivia, questions, and interesting factoids. Tele-Marketplace is unique in that it combines all three mediums, where the classifieds are on line, on television, and at the same time programming is simultaneously webcast.

Tele-Marketplace is the one stop shop where thousands go to buy and sell new and used goods, search and recruit for employment, look for cars, housing, services, and more from the comfort of their own living rooms. Tele-Marketplace offers customers the opportunity to post classified advertising on cable television and on-line for literally pennies a day. Over 14 million households in over 87 cities, 6 different cable systems, two different satellite systems and the world wide web will see the classifieds on television as well as posted to its web
