Our First 30 Second National TV Commercial

This week we aired our first ever TV commercial on National television. It will be getting exposure on a variety of stations like CNN, HGTV, ABC Family, and the Travel Channel.

I'm really excited and proud of this and looking forward to seeing it on TV in the days ahead. It's only 30 seconds long and titled "Find Your Way Home." I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments.

You may want to watch it twice like I did to really catch some of the key details and messaging.

I like Brad!  Straight to the point and certainly encourages people to discover how they can find their dream home.

Good morning Brad - Congratulations on launching the ad.  It was mellow which I like and provided lots of information about Zillow with graphics and images instead of a hard sell.  You certainly selected the right stations for running your ad.  I'll be watching for it too.

Thanks Melanie - I like how it encourages them to do something at the end of the commercial too. <wink wink>

Just left you a message.

This ad is very subtle. You pack a lot of info into 30 seconds. Love the loan amount!

Good job, Brad. It was warm - it was intriquing and best of all it peaked ones curiosity about the "possibilities".  I see a strong increase in traffic to your site!

Agents and consumers everywhere seem to like it! Thanks everyone.

We're very excited that audiences we share this with all over the country are really loving that we "connect consumers with local agents" at the end of the commercial.  It's a win-win commercial for sure~  :-)
