Designed that way.
Music is loud. Pictures and text flash fast.
It's a commercial!


I'm striving to make really cool commercials for online training videos for property inspectors - a big challenge to say the least. This is one of my favorite commercials with loud music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlXRe...eature=related

Try again fella.

The music over your voice is extremely annoying.

You might as well as have duct tape over your mouth.

Find some better music and pot it down.

Those two are better in my opinion (for what it's worth), the Roofing music is overbearing Ben when your speaking....but just a couple of opinions here, others may love it.

Some may click to abort, like I did, instead of listening to the entire Roofing Commercial.

On the commercial you are trying to compare yours to, there was not a single spoken word.

That's why I have a DVR. I can skip through annoying commercials. And the company paying for that commercial gets nothing for their money and gets no money of mine.

It's annoying. And following in that vein, I closed the window and won't be buying the product.

If you have a good product, just sell it. Don't play games.

I must agree. The music is loud and boisterous.

The problem is....you've got loud music playing while you're talking and supplying information. That's as bad as having two people talking to you at once.

You're advertising a SAMPLE ROOF INSPECTION VIDEO, and people simply want to see a "LIVE" sample of the information you are supplying, not the music.

I say, rid the Rock & Roll music.

It was more detailed than regular roof inspection course. I think I will try a slide show for clients with music with some handouts.
