BLINK AN AMAZON COMPANY
- Client: Blink
- Product: Blink Home Security Camera System
- Price Point: $200
- Objectives: Blink wanted to explain, inform, and demonstrate their new home security camera system at scale while generating a front-end ROI.
BLINK came to us with a specific ask. They wanted to explain, inform, and demonstrate their new home security camera system at scale while generating a front-end ROI. Before we embarked on creating a message that went through all the features and benefits, we went through an in-depth interview process with current BLINK customers. The specific reason for this was we wanted to address the real contextual and important reasons why people chose BLINK over the many competitors. What we discovered was even though the many features and benefits were important they were in no way comparable to the “Peace of Mind” customers were receiving with the BLINK system.
With this knowledge we created four empathy-driven testimonial packages that were part of the entire message. Each one is focused on a different “Peace of Mind” story that highlighted the specific and direct selling message that drove sales. An empathic story from a real customer is social proof and will likely be much more successful than what you initially thought might move the dial or what your gut feeling was. It is imperative that you find out why your customers purchase first. Most times their reasons will resonate far better with potential customers than you could imagine.

To achieve the goals set by the Client, Script to Screen recruited actual, current Gwynnie Bee members as enthusiastic testimonials; women who had been subscribers for anywhere from several months to several years. Designing the show as a vicarious shopping trip for the viewer. Gwynnie Bee is all about freedom of choice and the joy of finding something new you’d like to try, so it was important to continuously showcase outfits, and bring the tremendous breadth of the Gwynnie Bee selection to
Highlighting the value proposition of Gwynnie Bee with a powerful tagline: “Enjoy an unlimited wardrobe on a limited budget.” This revolutionary concept—the chance to wear $1000 worth of clothes each month for a fraction of the price—is reinforced throughout by the testimonials, the founder, and the spokesperson, and the VO announcer in the CTA. Spotlighting the Gwynnie Bee founder, Christine Hunsicker in each of the three show “Acts.” She is a highly articulate, passionate, credible spokesperson for her company and communicates a sincere desire to provide a much-needed service to this target market. Casting an attractive, appealing female spokesperson, Marcie Prete, reflective of the target demographic.

- Price Point: $150
- Objectives: The objectives of the campaign were to educate consumers about the features and benefits of this revolutionary hard-anodized nonstick cookware collection as well as increase sales for the Circulon Symmetry product line.
The Meyer Corporation paves the way for the culinary industry by bringing innovative products to market that also adhere to the highest quality standards.
Meyer housewares has almost solely operated in retail for their many brands, but it was the long-form format that immediately compelled Macy’s, BB&B and other retailers to reach out and ask Meyer to immediately get programs started or increased. In 2017, as the only new marketing initiative, Meyer engaged Script to Screen to produce and launch a long-form show for their Circulon Symmetry Non-Stick cookware.
The show features lifestyle expert and host, Erika Vetrini and celebrity chef Stuart O’Keeffe as co-host. Based around the 4 “Gotta Haves,” for any non-stick cookware: quality non-stick cooking, even heat distribution, easy clean-up and long lasting durability, they demonstrate the amazing durability and non-stick performance of this revolutionary hard anodized, non-stick cookware. Authentic testimonials support the performance of each piece and the overall quality of the Symmetry line.
In addition to generating direct sales, Circulon’s DRTV marketing initiative surpassed expectations for the resulting retail lift and led to expanded in-store distribution. The show reached No. 20 on the IMS Top 100 and will remain part of their marketing mix in 2018.

- Client: Shark Rotator
- Product: Lift-Away Shark/Ninja Cleaner
- Price Point: $199
- Objectives: To create product awareness and exposure for the superiority of the Shark Rotator, and to drive retail sales.
The primary goal in producing the Shark Rotator Lift-Away infomercial was to create product awareness and exposure for the superiority of the Shark Rotator with an initial “compare and save” strategy, highlighting previously unavailable features that put the Shark Rotator ahead of the competition.
The infomercial achieves this with an attention-grabbing opening gag that parodies a snooty British gentleman, believable direct comparisons to the market competition, demo after demo of the Shark Rotator’s superiority, and authentic talent who delivers the message with confident
Bold animation and graphics communicate the features and benefits of the product – the graphics are beautiful and brilliantly composited for maximum effect. Above-par production value instantly corresponds to a higher perceived product value; the show looks professional, and emotionally connects immediate credibility and superior quality to the product.
George Fettig, Euro-Pro’s Chief Marketing Officer quotes: “The Rotator campaign was an enormous hit in all respects . . . in fact, it is the most successful introduction since the Shark Steam Mop. Shark vacuums quickly captured 12% of the entire vacuum category in the United States with 100% retail distribution at all major accounts.” The Shark Rotator infomercial launched in October 2012, and consistently ranks in the Top 10 of the IMS Top 100 chart.

- Client: Bose
- Product: Home Entertainment System
- Objectives: To introduce the Bose 321 GS Series II to the marketplace. Create a front-end profit center and to drive retail sales.
For over 40 years the name Bose has been synonymous with ground breaking audio achievements that have resulted in historic milestones. From the first 901® Direct Reflecting® speakers launched in the 1960’s, to the award-winning Wave® Radio and radio/CD systems, to today’s 321 GS Series II Home Entertainment System, Bose has been at the forefront of sound technology.
The Bose 321 Home Entertainment system is a DVD-based system that offers full surround sound from only two small speakers. Script to Screen’s challenge was to create an infomercial that would convince the viewer that such a small unit could display such superior sound quality. To demonstrate this, Script to screen created a theatre inside a trailer and invited members of the public to watch a movie using the Bose 321 system. Professionals within the the entertainment industry, as well as Bose 321 system owners, provided testimonials.
Launched in June 2005, the Bose 321 GS Series II Home Entertainment System infomercial has generated over $50 million in sales. It consistently ranked in the Top 50 of the IMS Report and was awarded a Bronze WorldMedal by the prestigious New York Festivals.
