How to Keep Viewers From Skipping Your Ad

In fact, you may even be one of those people that keeps their hand on the remote during the whole program, just so you’re ready to hit mute or change the channel when an ad shows up. Am I right?

And – no you won’t get in trouble with the mind police for using this tactic with your video commercial.
