General Questions

WHAT IS SAYSME.TV?

SaysMe.tv is a platform for everyone from individuals, local businesses and brands/companies to get their messages out on television. Sign up for SaysMe.tv, choose your market, select an ad, select a network, and personalize it with your name on it. With just a few simple clicks, you can put an ad on TV! Then you can distribute or embed your personalized ads anywhere on the Internet.

WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE IT ON MY TV?

Yes, if you have local cable television you will be able to see it.

IS IT REALLY ON TV? WHEN WILL I SEE MY AD?

Yes! After you purchase your ad and choose the market(s) in which you want your ad or ad campaign to run, you will receive a confirmation of your purchase immediately. Then, at least 24 hours prior to air time, you will also receive a confirmation of the time and date that it will run so you can record it or watch it live with friends. Ads purchased may take 5-7 business days to run on the air. It is possible that local markets may have to push your ad to run at a later date than originally stated - SaysMe has no control over this and in the event this occurs we will make every effort to let you know the revised date prior to your ad airing. Please be advised this is not common and under most situations your air date should remain intact.

WHAT CHANNEL IS IT ON?

When you visit the SaysMe.tv website, we'll show you a list of available channels and prices in your area. You choose the channel and we do the rest.

CAN I LET OTHER PEOPLE KNOW THAT I WILL HAVE AN AD ON THE AIR?

Yes! You can choose to have SaysMe.tv blast your address book to let all your friends and family know that your ad will be on TV.

CAN I BUY AN AD TO RUN IN ANOTHER STATE?

Yes, you can choose to run an ad in any of our available markets. Very soon we will have 92 from which to choose around the country. For a complete list of our available markets, please use the drop-down box to browse cities as the first step on our application found on saysme.tv/front.

IS IT REALLY MY NAME ON THE AD?

YES! That's one of the unique features of SaysMe.tv. All of our ads end with a 5 second clip that says 'Paid for by (YOUR NAME)'! Put your personal stamp on the ad of your choice. In just a few months, you'll be able to add more personalization features to your ad like your own graphics and voice-over.

DOES IT HAVE TO BE IN MY NAME?

Yes. It's television, so you need to use your own name to stand behind your own cause. Everyone must represent themselves.

CAN I SUBMIT MY OWN AD?

Yes! Visit our upload page at http://saysme.tv/static/submission. We expect to see all kinds of content from general issues, politics, advertisements for local musicians and entertainers, personal/classifieds to OpEds, PSA's, and ads for local businesses and events. SaysMe.tv plans to be the Voice of the People. We want to let your voice be as powerful as that of an advertiser or big corporation. Put your mouth where your money is and SAY SOMETHING!

DO YOU SUPPORT THE POLITICAL BELIEFS OF THE CAMPAIGNS, POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES AND ORGNANIZATIONS REPRESENTED ON THIS SITE?

As a platform for the distribution of individual ideas, SaysMe.tv is agnostic. Like you, the people who work at SaysMe.tv have strong beliefs and like to debate them vigorously with each other. We are a diverse organization made up of individuals on both sides of the aisle, but as a company we strongly agree that a non-partisan stance facilitates the greatest flow of opinions and the largest number of voices to be heard. We have only one constraint - broadcast standards.

WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS?

Please email our customer service at cs@saysme.tv and we will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT QUESTIONS

WHAT BROWSER SHOULD I BE USING?

Windows Users

Internet Explorer is the best viewing option for Windows users. The Firefox browser is a good browser, but has problems playing files back at times. You should download the latest version of the Internet Explorer browser here or via the link below:

AOL browsers also have problems playing back video files. If you are an AOL user we suggest that you use the Internet Explorer browser that comes with your computer. The stock Microsoft Internet Explorer browser seems to perform better than the customized IE that AOL has developed. To use the stock browser go to the start menu and select "Internet Explorer" from the program menu.
