Great commercials end with a "call to action" that urges the audience to do something after
watching the commercial.
What are the next steps they should take to buy your product?
Should they send you a million dollar check?
Should they visit your website to learn more?
This video will help you plan the Call To Action, then you'll have a chance to code
it on your own.
To start, click on the "stage," click on the backdrops tab, and add a new backdrop to your
project by clicking "paint new backdrop."
Add the text for your "call to action" on the backdrop.
This is just an example.
You should use whatever you want for your commercial.
Remember, for safety reasons you should never share personal details like your last name,
home address, or phone number on the internet.
Click on the scripts tab.
Add a "when I receive" event and a new message for that event.
This example uses the new message "call to action."
Add a "switch backdrop to" block under this event, and choose the name of your new backdrop.
Try your code.
Drag out a "broadcast" block, and choose the broadcast message you just created.
Click the block.
The backdrop switches to your newly added backdrop.
You can also code other cool ending effects into this code stack, like a new sound or
a change effect block like "whirl."
Be creative, and make your ending flashy so people remember your commercial!
Finally, add code to switch the backdrop back to the original when the green flag is clicked.
And, most important, add the new broadcast block to the end of your commercial so your
"call to action" code runs.
Now it's your turn.
Add a new backdrop and create the "call to action" you want your audience to remember.
Add a new broadcast message to change to your newly created backdrop.
Add other cool effects or sounds to your code.
Remember to use the “broadcast” block with the newly created message to tell the
stage when it is time to display the call to action!
