Regular TV marketing of a product may be too expensive for small and medium businesses. Fortunately, there is an economic yet effective alternative – advertising the products or services with DIY PowerPoint DVDs. A PowerPoint DVD is a DVD disk made from PowerPoint that you have scripted your product/service ad lines, so that you can promote it on TV attached with a DVD player. It requires a conversion program to transform PowerPoint to DVD, since the two are incompatible media file formats. Compared with screen capturing software like Adobe Captive and Camtasia Studio, the third-party conversion app Moyea PPT to DVD Burner is a "Cost –less-to-earn-more" choice. In this post, I will cover why make a product ad with PowerPoint and how to create and convert it to DVD in 2 sections.

Why make a product ad with PowerPoint DVD?

The benefits matter. For companies who are in a tight budget in the post-crisis time, it is vital to spend every penny in a wise way. Less cost means more saved. A product ad made in PowerPoint DVD overweighs that by average DVD/video production agencies. Take a glance below:

  • 1. Easier. Composing a product ad with PowerPoint is much easier than video producing tool, which requires a higher command of coding skills.
  • 2. Cheaper. If you have MS PowerPoint, the only cost for your product ad is a small bulk on a third-party PPT to DVD Burner (usu. less than $100) plus a blank disk, far less than the possible expense for an average video production agency (often several hundreds or thousands of dollars).
  • 3. More flexible. In PowerPoint, you can tailor the product ad as random as possible, by adding an animation, a watermark, a movie clip, a mood sound or your very voice-cover. In video production, you will have to suffer a tedious restart of the whole ad if a necessary change on it calls.
  • 4. More objective. Loss of objectivity is one shortcoming of video, as the voice, always subjective, may distract the audience from focusing on the product itself. At that point, PowerPoint does a better job to display your product the way it is by focusing on illustrated images.
  • 5. Once and for more. You pay a video production company for this product ad, and you will pay it for another. Count the accumulated sum. In contrast, you only have to pay once for creation of millions of PowerPoint DVD ads, for the PPT to DVD burner is granted to serve you as long as being installed on your PC. You can roll out new product ads, or update the existing product info, just by synchronizing in PowerPoint and burning to blank DVDs.
  • Seeing such benefits in advertising with PowerPoint DVD, now it is time to discuss details on how to create an ideal advertising PowerPoint show and convert into DVD with the PPT to DVD burner.

    How to create a product ad in PowerPoint and convert it to DVD?

    First, you should set up the theme and outline of your product ad, i.e. subject and key points of the presentation to be.

    Then, collect all the elements that you need for the product ad, e.g. high quality product images, a short video clip on the product, or a recorded voice-cover that matches, anything that may capture your potential customers.
