Are you running a local TV commercial?

Have you ever thought about advertising on a local cable channel?

I was curious as to what a good Lawn Care commercial should look like!
I did a Bing search on "Lawn care commercials"!! Boy!!! Was it informative!!! (as in what NOT to do in a commercial!)

IMHO, here's what NOT to do in a TV commercial!
(Sorry Oklahoma!)

Looks like a bunch of hacks. I checked into it awhile back. It ran so much per time it was on. You can run it as frequent or infrequently as you want. I think you can pick the channel or channels as well.
