Frequently Asked Questions
What is Homestelevsion all about?
Basically, Homes Television is a 24/7 online homes tradeshow that allows each business the ability to teach their customers about what they offer through video. Homes Television is a company that films and produces short bios / interviews of homes suppliers for both the website (homestelevision.ca) and on display screens. Homes Television was developed to be able to allow future customers to learn about suppliers in the homes industry by watching them on video where they can see and hear them, learn about their services and see the work they do.
Does it cost anything for suppliers to be interviewed by homestelevision.ca?
No. There is no charge for filming, editing or posting the first interviews. The free interview takes approximately 30 minutes and is filmed at one location. We ask the businesses to provide us a disk of their own portfolio images that we can edit into their final production to assist you in selling your product or service.
If you decide you want to enhance your free video with multiple locations, special video work or adding video testimonials, we can do this for you at an affordable rate.
Beyond your first video, if you choose to add more videos to your page (such as separate testimonial videos), we will offer affordable rates for production.
What am I required to do to get my interview?
Call us or email us to have a time scheduled for your interview. Time schedules are available on a first come, first servce basis. We only ask two things from you:
- We ask you to get a disk of your own portfolio images together for us to use in editing your interview video. Please make sure you own the photos as therefore we are given the rights to use these in your video.
- Once we finish your video and page, we will send you a link to your Homes Television page which contains your interview video. We ask you to link to your Homes Television page from your website, blog, signature on emails or any other web based link to help you sell your services.
As homestelevision.ca is producing content for our own network, your customers can watch your interviews through the Homes Television link you provide. If you want to have the final edited video for your own usage, such as posting directly on your own website, we charge full rates for your production.
What are the benefits to being involved with homestelevision.ca?
There are so many benefits to being involved with homestelevision.ca. Here are a few:
- videos are popular links on websites as it is easier to watch a video than read a paragraph of text.
- videos can offer your clients the ability to get to know you, hear and see your work and provide a great method for testimonials
- homestelevision.ca is receiving substantial traffic, therefore being listed on the site will be a benefit for your marketing.
- you are going to reach your target audience.
- This is a very powerful option for a homes tradeshow. The benefit is your "booth" or video is available to your customers 24/7, 365 days per year. At a live tradeshow, the highest percentage of customers walk by your booth without stopping to learn about your services. An online tradeshow is different as it is proven that customers are watching the complete videos, therefore learning about you and your products and services.
Can I use the interview from homestelevision.ca on my own site?
All content filmed by homestelevision.ca is property of homestelevision.ca and Impressive Television Inc unless rights are purchased by the supplier. We will give you your own page on homestelevision.ca that you can link to which will not have any of your direct competitors advertised on. Companies are currently linking to their powerful marketing videos we produce for them from their websites, social media sites and even at the bottom of every email they send out.
Can I have my own channel on homestelevision.ca?
Yes, with the web page we give you on homestelevision.ca, you can have multiple videos in your playlist to help you promote your company.
Can I put more videos in my playlist on my homestelevision.ca page?
Yes! homesTelevision.ca will film your first bio / interview video at no cost. Future videos such as client testimonial videos or promotional videos will be offered to our customers at affordable rates. If you have your own videos that you would like posted on homestelevision.ca, the content would have to be approved first, then charges would apply for encoding and adding the content to the homestelevision software.
Can I run my Homes Television interview on a TV screen at a tradeshow?
Yes! If you would like to run your video interview from a PC, we can offer you a program that loops your HD video on a television screen. There is a cost for developing this for you and we will require advance notice of your request so we have time to produce your program.
