I just sponsored an appearance by Stephanie Miller which filled a meeting room with a capacity for 1500 people.
I used to attend Quixtar meetings in that room five years ago. Never were there as many people as Stephanie drew to the Makoy Center.
Bring me up to speed here, because I'm appallingly ignorant about these things- Quixtar is Amway, right? If that's the case then both you and Ms. Miller deserve a hearty round of applause. Drawing a bigger crowd than an Amway meeting is no small achievement. Kudos!
I have a state job which pays roughly $43,000 annually with a revenue-generating agency. It's a matter of public record.
But I assume your advertising dollars are being used to promote the multi-level marketing soap and herbal supplement products available on your website, yes?
Many advertisers may blow cash on radio spots to gain customers and (hopefully) profits. The advertisers behind WVKO see our dollars as an investment in our community. And most will not advertise on other radio stations.
That kind of loyalty is something you just can't buy, isn't it? It certainly sounds like you've found the perfect audience for what you're selling.
You can be as facetious as you want, but those who cut the checks to radio stations have control over those who receive checks from radio stations.
Believe me, I wouldn't have it any other way, but you wound me with the suggestion I was being facetious. I'm quite serious. Just imagine the look on a programmers face when he opens up your package and finds a delightful sample-size selection of cleaning products, all labeled "CLEAN UP IN THE RATINGS WITH PROGRESSIVE TALK!" That's just the kind of innovative, outside-the-box marketing that can help open their eyes to the possibilities of progressive programming.
Your friend forever,
P.S.- You could even customize the various cleaning products with different marketing slogans. "Smell that? It's not just the fresh scent of pure citrus oil, but the sweet smell of ratings success!"
P.P.S.- "Lemony Limbaugh Remover! Filled with the cleansing power of progressive talk!"
P.P.P.S.- "Bloviating Blowhard Toilet Bowl Cleaner! Flush those right-wing talkers down the drain and leave your toilet bowl, and your ratings, sparkling fresh!"
