Advertising for new internet radio station?

by tyankee7 on March 27, 2013

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by abyoala: Advertising for new internet radio station?
I’m starting a new internet radio station and need to know what to charge. I live in a rural area but would be able to get plenty of listeners. I would probably start out with about 20 listeners or so and then build up… It costs quite a bit to operate the station with all of the required purchases but I was thinking of giving 20 businesses a free month of advertising for my first month of broadcasting and then charging $ 12.50 per week blocks. Does this sound like a good plan?

Giving them something for free will be huge. If they do not see some sort of results from the freebies they might not want to pay you for continued ads. I’ll suggest getting the word out to your friends and listeners that they really should patronise your advertisers, even just a little, to help you out.

I’d also start with just 10 for the first month then do a different 10 the second month. Offer to write and voice the ads, too. DO NOT air them before the businesses have a chance to approve them!! Also, the ads you have the more chances there are for the listeners to bail and head for another station.

Are you planning on doing 10, 20, 30 seconds ads? “Sponsored by” mentions? Lottsa choices.

Sounds like a great project. LMK how it’s going and how it works out. It’s something I’d like to do here on Ohio.
