As a corporate entity Wallingford Public Access, Inc. is dedicated to providing all manner of support for the creation and distribution of noncommercial community media. However noncommercial doesn’t mean there is a black-out on the use of ‘Community TV’ resources by business. The no-can-do is literally no commercials: Video with calls to action for sales and promotion of business specifically to create sales.
Business have stories to share about their history, founders, champions among their employees, community collaborations and mission all of which are important stories to be shared with our community. Thriving local business is important to the health and well-being of our community overall.
Companies can afford Media Services: Providing video services at no charge to business is not part of the mission. However collaboration and distribution of stories that are not designed to sell products is within our mission. Business can participate in initiatives like Holiday Greetings and CommUnity Conversations. Registered business can use resources with the same conditions as residents. Nonprofit business can apply for ‘Continuing the Mission‘ which is additional staffed support to develop video content for TV and social media. All business can submit requests for graphic support to promote community information programs or giving initiatives as shown above.
