Testimonials

ShowSeeker is amazing! It has helped me pull information on the sports and programming for our AEs many times. The program is extremely people friendly and easy to use. I can build the schedules using the .scx application for the staff and save them time. Packages are very current and keep updating. Ann from New York

I have a local furniture dealer who places numerous schedules each week with us. Each schedule has specific time restrictions and often has very specific targets. Using ShowSeeker I am able to find patio programming to promote their outdoor furniture collection, select only news networks to promote their high end furniture collection and select live sports to promote their HD televisions. Without ShowSeeker this task would be incredibly time consuming if not impossible! Melissa from Nebraska

The media buyer for a large grocery store likes a good monthly schedule of specific programing blended in with broad rotators. With ShowSeeker, I can cherry pick shows targeted to women 25-49 and develop a schedule that works for them. ShowSeeker makes it so easy to see what programs, sporting events, movies and marathons are in play for the specific times and dates needed. I love my ShowSeeker. I also work with a small furniture store. Recently they put in a Magnolia gallery in their store to sell the furniture from Joanna Gains. With ShowSeeker I've been able to pick the new episodes of "Fixer Upper" for their schedule. Added to that, ShowSeeker gives me great access to all the "Fixer Upper" marathons to schedule the furniture store's commercials as well. My client has had great success with people coming in their store and saying they saw their commercial on HGTV. Al from Tennessee

I cold called a spa and pool company a few months ago. He had some interest in our product but it was hard to get him to commit. During the CNA process we discovered his premier spa was a Michael Phelps Swim Spa by Master Spa. We decided to add a section to his proposal centered around collegiate swim meets, swimming pool and home design shows and other swimming-based events. This was something only cable advertising could offer. We went into ShowSeeker and pulled a report giving us all the related events for the next few months. This idea really caught his attention. We ended up getting a commercial from Master Spas and tagging it with his information. We closed a schedule for $1900 per month. ShowSeeker made this a quick and simple process. Ken from Texas

ShowSeeker is an integral partner in what I do every day as a service to our clients. Without this valuable tool, I would not be able to do my job. And the customer service ShowSeeker provides goes above and beyond to give me a level of service that I can count on every day. Catherine from Minnesota

Time and time again, ShowSeeker has saved my company money by keeping us informed of schedules and changes in schedules for all the high-profile programming our clients love. It has kept our clients happy by making sure their needs and wants are met 100% and that their money is going where they intended it to go. In an ever-changing environment like television, where things can change day to day, it's great to have ShowSeeker on my side to ensure that I am providing the most accurate information to all parties involved and keep profits up. Thank You ShowSeeker team! Carly from New York

Thanks to ShowSeeker I was able to upsell a new client with monthly sports programming. It is so easy to just put in my date and ask for live sporting events and there it is. Then to just export to an .scx file saves me so much time. With this system I am able to sell 4 more auto dealers at least 40 to 50 percent high-profile programming each month. Gayle from North Carolina

ShowSeeker is a huge help to me in so many ways. I love that I can change a few days and times, hit new and I can see all the new programming currently available. When you have spots that preempt or fail and the end of the month draws near, ShowSeeker makes it easy to search for good replacements. I also love that I can search by program genre, particularly with wedding season coming up. Thank you for making my work life easier ShowSeeker! Diane from Nebraska

Our exclusive Rate Card Admin allows you to set your own time periods and rates by Quarter and set "rules" for how you want narrowed dayparts to be handled.

Customizable so the system can detect and automatically apply premium rates on shows such as Premieres, Finales, New or LIVE Sports or Events.
