TV Advertising VS. Radio and Newspaper

For over 50 years, TV advertising has been and continues to be the most efficient form of mass media. TV advertising provides the benefit of combining sight, sound, color, and action to an actively engaged audience. Virtually every business can afford to put the power of television to work for them. Cable television advertising will help your business drive sales and build your brand recognition.


“We were experiencing a lull in our work load in the winter months, so we called PBTV. Don and the staff came out and put together an excellent TV spot. They worked with us to optimize our viewing times and our target market. Once the ad started to air, we saw results immediately. We highly recommend PBTV and their staff for any of your marketing needs. They are extremely professional, and very pleasant to work with.”


“We have been advertising with PBTV for several years. We get great bang for our buck with the packages we have chosen that allow us to target a specific market while also getting spots on other popular channels as well. The staff we work with have been excellent at helping us either choosing commercials we already have or creating new spots. PBTV is a good value and fits in nicely with the rest of our advertising plan.”


“Community minded and generous is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Paul Bunyan Communications. Providing pro bono advertising since 2013 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Bemidji Area, a non-profit youth development organization that promotes academic success, healthy lifestyles and good character & citizenship. The TV Ads provide community awareness and publicity attributing to a 39% increase in average daily Club member attendance since 2013. Paul Bunyan Communications is a true asset to our community!”


“We Started advertising with PBTV about a year ago and it has been by far our best return on investment out of any of the other advertising we do. Don and his staff are always very helpful and quick when we want to change TV ads or stations”
