DRTV: The Evolution of the Infomercial
DRTV (Direct Response Television) is most often referred to as the infomercial. Although they weren’t a household name until the 1980s, infomercials have been around for many decades. In the earliest days of televisions, products such as blenders were showcased on television in long-form commercial formats. Over time, they rose to the top of the television advertising market as some of the most popular ways of connecting with consumers.

Infomercials became a household word in the mid-1980s. Products like indoor grills, power blenders, exercise equipment, and many others sold in the billions because of the power of DRTV.
