Hey everyone, yes I’ve been neglecting my blog but I have good reason. I’ve been out of town for most of the past 3 weeks – work, wedding to attend in Toronto … I’m just so glad to be at home, in my own bed this weekend. Now, if the AC can keep working this weekend (it had to be shut off last night because there was a burst pipe in the cooling system in our building!) I can actually hide out from this ridiculous humid heat. If this is any indication of the kind of weather we’re going to have this summer (and they are predicting a hot one) it is going to be a very long summer. But I digress.
The Variety Ad Committee is pleased to announce that the Blood Ties Ads are ready to go!
Greeting to All Blood Ties Fans:
This is an official announcement on behalf of the Variety Ad Committee.
We are elated to be able to make this announcement to all Blood Ties Fans. We did it! The ads will officially begin running on Variety.com for five consecutive days, with the launch beginning on June 9 and continuing until June 15.
The ads will be programmed to run intermittently in the following three sections of Variety: to appear on the home page, in the film section, and additionally, in the awards section. While we realize that Blood Ties was a television production, we were advised that in order to reach the DPT in the biz….these were the best fit options for maximum exposure. In addition, this week was chosen primarily because it is the week of the daytime Emmys. Our consultant considers this an ideal week for the ads to garner maximum attention, exposure and coverage for the business.
Please, remember the ads will be running on-line, they will not be stationary, they will be programmed to alternate either between one another, pop-up together, or to appear between the three pages together or apart from one another as listed above for viewing, so you may have to watch the screen(s) a bit for the appearance of one or both.
We will place the static page of the ads as soon as they are received from Variety for viewing. There will be a link provided to revert all inquiries directly back to: http://www.bloodtiestv.com/. We are also, including the link to the Variety site for your convenience: http://www.variety.com/. We additionally, increased the impressions to a reasonable maximum, thanks in part to the generous donations of the fans.
This has been a long and arduous endeavor, but it was also a labor of love. The total amount raised for the ads came to: $4,500.00. The Variety ads were purchased at: $3,700.00. The remaining balance of $800.00 will be donated to the “Best Friends of Animals Society“ on behalf of: Dylan, Kyle and Christina.
We are very excited and sincerely hope that everyone enjoys the ads. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the ads can work a “Bit of Magic” for the actors and the show. This could not have been accomplished without ALL THE DEDICATED AND DEVOTED BLOOD TIES FANS…….remember “Blood Ties Fans” can still bite back!
Again, to all Blood Ties Fans “Thanks So Very Much for Your Support” of the ads. We are very proud of the ads and hope you will enjoy seeing them run in Variety.com.
