The CD/DVD are perhaps one of today's most powerful marketing tools. The penetration of DVD-ROM drives has exploded. Nearly every business now has a CD/DVD drive.

That means that for very little cost, you can deliver large amounts of information including text, graphics, audio and high-quality video - to all your prospects and customers.

The cost to produce and replicate CD's and DVD's has dropped tremendously in recent years, making the power of CD/DVD marketing accessible to all companies. CD/DVD can't be beat as a sales and promotional tool for your business. No other medium combines the low cost storage capacity and ability to deliver direct links to web sites.

You may be saying, "why should we create a CD or DVD when all our information is on the web? There are many reasons. First and most important, you must sill get traffic to your site. A CD and DVD is intrusive - it's delivered in person or through the mail. A CD/DVD goes to the user. The colorful packaging immediately grabs attention and delivers benefits for visiting the site.

With the importance of the web today, a CD/DVD can be used to cut through the clutter of millions of web sites and deliver a direct link to your web site. Imagine delivering your prospects a colorfully packaged CD/DVD that includes video testimonials, product demos and other reasons for visiting your web site. After they're sold on the benefits, they simply link to your site with the click of an icon on the CD/DVD.



DISTRIBUTION

Distribution is just as important as the authoring. This is where the companies can shine and lead the pack. Most companies don't take the time to think out of the box on the subject of distribution. Creative distribution can go a long way towards increasing awareness of your offering and lifting you above the competition. Some ideas include;  

*Personal distribution by sales team to prospects
*Direct mail with invitation or other call to action
*Direct mail with a special "code" for entry into a contest
*Free through retain stores
*A free with purchase
*"Ride-along" with another product (e.g. included in box)
*Hand out at sponsored events (such as sporting events, concerts, fairs, festivals, etc.
*Movie theaters
*Trade Shows
*Conferences
*"Street Team" distribution at malls, street corners, etc.

OTHER BENEFITS OF THE "WEB LINK" ON THE CD/DVD ALLOW YOU TO:

*Provide forms that can be completed "off-line" then delivered via the Internet with the click of the mouse.
*Provide updates of CD/DVD data
*It's high storage capacity and low reproduction cost mean you can deliver full-motion video directly to your target audience.


BENEFITS OF CD/DVD

*SPEED: Drive speed has increased making "video on CD/DVD" an effective promotional tool.
*LOW COST: CD/DVD's are cost efficient to produce and mail.
*CAPACITY: A single CD can hold 650 megabytes of information. That's equivalent to about 400 diskettes, 25,000 pages of text, 12 scanned images or 72 minutes of full-motion video. This information can be presented in variety of creative and compelling ways.
*DVD-SINGLE LAYER (DVD5): up to 4.7 GB of data or roughly 130 minutes of video. Double layer (DVD9) up to 8.5 GB or roughly 240 minutes of video. Blu-ray capacity has the same dimensions as a standard DVD but can hold up to 25 GB single layer and 50 GB dual layer. The name Blu-ray comes from the blue laser used to read the disc.
*QUALITY: A CD/DVD delivers much higher resolution video than the web
*INTERACTIVITY: You can include search-able databases, audio and video responses and much more.
*EASY AUTHORING: Today's new authoring tools and digital input devices such as scanners and cameras make CD/DVD development easy and inexpensive.
*PERCEIVED VALUE: CD's and DVD's consistently sell for $10 to hundreds of dollars
*UNIQUE: Another important benefit of a CD/DVD is that you can deliver it directly to your best prospects. Unlike traditional direct mail, a colorfully packaged CD/DVD arrives in the mail and grabs attention.

CREATING A CD OR DVD IS EASY:

Creating your own CD/DVD is easy. King Communications, Inc. can create and produce your CD/DVD. This would start by discussing your objectives and current "assets" that may be included on the CD/DVD. This could include photos, text, video clips, sound clips and web site links. You may also want to put your web site on the CD/DVD. Based on our objectives, we would discuss the "user experience" and exactly what you want the user to see and do when they insert your CD/DVD into the drive. Often companies want sound and images to start immediately. Maybe the company president walks on to the screen and welcomes the user. You may want your logo to be animated, spinning across the screen with music playing in the background. Nearly anything is possible.

Along with this "opening sequence" we would create an infrastructure so your assets - the video clips, brochures, photos, etc - can be easily accessed.


HOW MUCH?

Budget is based on the complexity of the presentation, the amount of video and the degree of "finish" of the materials you provide. A professional-quality CD/DVD presentation can be created for as little as $500.00 up to $50,000.
