Syndication is covered above in shared services. The only thing to add is we believe the best independent shows out there will finally have a chance to be heard in multiple markets on many independent stations. Not only do you sound more local…you get back the inventory current provided to large syndicators that compete with you for revenue on a national platform.
News Service is not something every station needs, but those that do pay dearly for it, either in cash or barter. Imagine a shared service where every station can upload local/regional proprietary stories along with photos any broadcaster can use for free! With 7,000 independents and many contributing, we can develop a substantial and robust national news service of our own with unlimited FREE use.
Monthly webinars/seminars have been very well received. We are offering webinars on Sales, Programming, Human Resources, Equipment and much more!
Hearing a national promotion in your market on the big guys, can be frustrating to say the least. You may be giving away a car lease, but they are giving away $100,000. Yes, theirs is National, but it sounds local and who does not like winning cash? Our idea is to offer an opportunity for member stations to participate in our own national contest. Imagine how great it would sound on your station to be part of a cash contest where not one $100,000 cash prize was being given away, but several? That is possible based on participation levels. 3,000 stations participating would generate $300,000 at $100 each. Small price for a giant promotion! That equates to $1,000 a day 5 times plus a weekly grand prize of $5,000, for ten straight weeks! Even more, imagine receiving the email and mobile number database from this and generating a great response for your market! A small fee per station will be required to cover the cost of executing the promotion.
