Yes, a video created by AuthorHouse is required. However, we have infomercial service options for authors who already have a video and those who need one created. The three service options are as follows:
Back to Top
No, only authors who have a Premium Book Video or Author Video can purchase the Infomercial service. You will need to purchase either the Infomercial with Book Video or Infomercial with Author Interview service.
No, you must choose one video to feature in the infomercial. If you want to feature both your video and trailer, you must purchase two infomercial spots.
Your infomercial will run over a six week period for a total of 30 times.
During the overnight, early morning and weekend slots in the following five markets: Denver, Colo., Indianapolis, Ind.; Charlotte, N.C.; Ft. Myers/Naples, Fla.; and San Antonio, Texas.*
*Markets are subject to change based on station availability.
Based on the latest Nielson ratings, we estimate the infomercial will be viewed more than one million times over your six-week campaign. Please note: Views does not mean unique viewers; a view is each time a person within or outside the same household views the program. You also gain the potential of increased viewership when we distribute the infomercial on YouTube as three segments.
Your airtime will consist of the actual length of your video or trailer, plus we’ll show your book cover before your video section plays.
Each infomercial can feature up to 10 authors total.
No. We chose markets to gain wide distribution across the country.
No, your infomercial will run depending when you purchase the service and the availability of open time slots.
No, we have sole discretion of the presentation of the infomercial and will arrange it to maximize effectiveness and professionalism.
We will send you a report detailing specific stations and airtimes, but only after your infomercial runs because some projected spots may get bumped and moved to a different time.
Yes, we will send a DVD copy of the completed infomercial.
You cannot use it on TV, but you can use it on your websites, at signings or any other use.
AuthorHouse owns the content of the complete infomercial, but you retain the right to your book video or author interview.
Yes, but local and independent stations have the right to pass on any controversial content.
Books of any genre are eligible, but local and independent television stations have the right to pass on any controversial content.
