  • It's important to understand all the costs associated with an infomercial campaign.
  • Infomercial production costs generally start at $75,000 and go up from there.
  • An infomercial media test cost is typically $10,000-$15,000.
  • If the test is successful, then media expenditures will increase, which can translate into in a larger ROI.
  • For example, if your infomercial campaign spending is at $10,000/week and bringing in $20,000 in revenue, if you can maintain that same 2:1 revenue to media expenditure ratio (Media Efficiency Ratio or MER), at a spending level of $100,000/week, then your campaign will generate $200,000 in revenue, which should generate more profit.
  • There are also other infomercial costs associated with an infomercial campaign, such as telemarketing, card processing, fulfillment, etc.
  • There are some infomercial marketing firms that will partner with inventors or entrepreneurs, so your upfront investment will be lower.
  • Some infomercial marketers will also partner with inventors and entrepreneurs and require no upfront investment. However, these firms typically only pay the inventor/entrepreneur a royalty.
  • If you can afford to fund the cost of an infomercial campaign on your own, if the campaign is successful you will reap all the profits.
  • This is usually the preferred approach for most people looking to enter the infomercial marketing business, since it allows them to receive the lion's share of profits from the infomercial campaign.
  • If possible, work with a infomercial campaign manager that can help you monitor infomercial costs and the profitability of your infomercial campaign.
  • By carefully monitoring all infomercial costs you will increase the chances of your infomercial campaign being a success.
