Cable TV companies can help you get the word out through their local channels, showing a small company logo on the screen, or some companies actually take it one-step further and offer short commercials that can be shown with commercials from other local businesses on one channel. Other Cable TV companies can send professional photographers to your place of business to take pictures and place their pictures of your business, with a company message and show them on the TV Guide channel. Everyone that tunes in that night to see what is on the Guide will see your advertised product or service.

The Weather Channel has done this for years. The other option would be a full screen ad, which, unlike The Weather Channel and the TV Guide, will give your business full-screen exposure, with more attention drawn to your company.
