The Science Behind Marketing "As Seen On TV" Products

Posted: Updated:

Update:

Why do we feel compelled to buy "As Seen On TV'' products? The marketing power of the products is strong -- it's hard to deny that.

The "As Seen On TV'' product line is a multi-billion dollar business. Infomercials are constantly on tv and now several stores have aisles dedicated to the much-hyped products.

Flint Communications Direct Response Strategist, Eric Piela talked on The Valley Today about the science behind marketing these products. He says there are a number of strategies that draw people in.

Piela says the excitement of the pitch man, the possibility of the product running out (operators are standing by) and the on-air demonstrations create the perfect marketing recipe. He says people often feel connected to the pitch men and obligated to buy after watching an infomercial.
