    I haven`t used television for myself, but I`ve worked quite a bit on the

    Hi Guys,
    Never used television advertising myself, but did come across an interesting new business the other day through a blog. It`s called spotrunner and it helps small businesses buy television advertising (during primetime, latenight whatever you`re looking for) at reasonable prices.
    I think you should be able to find it at www.spotrunner.com</A>.
    I`ve never used it before and I think one of the downsides is that you can`t create wholly original ads but interesting none the less.
