Advertising on television is something that is definitely not recommended for everyone. Not only do you need the funds to air the ads in the first place, but you need to ensure the right market to reach your intended audience (and be 100% positive on who that should be).
But, when handled properly, TV advertising can be a great marketing tool for labor unions, like the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1249 in Syracuse, NY.
LaborTools powered by BMA Media Group created a TV/commercial campaign for IBEW Local 1249 that launched today and will run for the next 15 weeks in the Newburgh and Rochester, NY markets. The ad will run on several popular cable networks, including Discovery Channel, ESPN & ESPN 2, NBC Sports, Spike, The Weather Channel and USA Network.
LaborTools created the :30 spot from start to finish, handling everything from script writing and acquiring the voiceover talent to on-location shooting and editing footage in our completely in-house video production department. The challenge during the 2-day shoot was to try and get to as many jobsites as possible so we could show as many different types of jobs and faces of the trade as we could within :30. All footage was shot with Canon's Cinema EOS C300.
