Welcome To Launch DRTV- Prepare to Take Off!

Thomas Edison said it best. “True innovation isn’t creating something new. It’s taking something that exists and making it better!” And that is what we do, very successfully, over and over again, at Launch DRTV.

More TV commercial spots and infomercials are being produced now than at any other time in TV history, yet only a select few run at significant media levels with sustainable return on investment. In fact, statistics suggest that nearly 80% or more of all long form infomercials fail to achieve success, or roll-out.

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to be just another statistic in the world of infomercial production bombs and misfires. At Launch DRTV, we’ve spent years researching which products and services work best on TV, and have developed a proprietary methodology for producing TV spots and infomercials that can turn the right products into money-making hits.

We work with traditional DRTV clients, and also specialize in bringing traditional brand clients into the world of DRTV. We don’t make infomercials. We make “BRAND-mercials”- — high production value, targeted, direct response advertising campaigns that attract valuable, long-term, repeat customers. And we do it well. Let us prove it to you.

Who is Launch DRTV?

Our Mission
To create the best performing direct response campaigns and infomercials and to help our clients showcase their brand in the best and more profitable way.
Our Philosophy
We produce “brandmercials”. Hybrid direct response campaigns mixing the best of infomercials and brand commercial spots. We partner with only brands and products that we believe will have long term success in the direct response world. At Launch DRTV, we measure our success by the results of each and every infomercial production, not by the sheer number of projects we complete. If direct response marketing is right for you and your product, then we want to be the ones to help you make it happen. But if DRTV is not your best fit, we’ll be the first to tell you.
Our People
We choose to work with only the best and brightest in the world of infomercial production and direct response. We bring together creative minds, experience, enthusiasm and professionalism to form the hardest working and best team in the world of DRTV.
How Do We Set Ourselves Apart From Our Competitors?
We don’t take on dozens of projects a year in hopes of having a single hit. We choose the products and brands we want to work with carefully and then put our full energy into those campaigns. We don’t pretend to know your brand or historical results as good or as well as you do. We do however bring a fresh and energized perspective along with a fiery passion to any project we touch. We also immerse ourselves in your product, brand history, historical results and data, and we closely look at where you have been and where you are now, with an absolute drive to help get you to where you want to be! We listen to the client and keeper of the brand and the historical goldmine of data, history and results. We ask questions, we listen, and we take action to implement.
