We are able to execute a wide array of radio promotions (all formats), television promotions (local/MSO cable), nationally syndicated show integrations and ads for podcast and social media. We also maintain many partnerships in the retail space, and curate events for promotions nationally and internationally via sweepstakes, giveaways and product debuts.
Additionally, we have developed self-improvement programs with fundraising initiatives for PBS and have created a specialized, two-minute daily program called Insight Daily Radio (IDR) to promote a variety of brands and products on both national public radio and commercial radio stations.
We work with local television and MSO/cable operators to initiate television promotions and sweepstakes. These promotions utilize excess inventory from multi-system cable operators to advertise releases via on-air TV spots across top broadcasters, independent stations and cable systems/networks.
Promotions can last anywhere from ten days to two weeks, and in some cases a third-party prizing partner is tied into the spots.
Our national network of partner television stations is in the top 200 DMAs. Promotions on morning television last anywhere from five to ten days at a time and typically involve on-air spots, book giveaways (10 books are provided per station), author interviews, sweepstakes, grand prizes (i.e. spa giveaways and romantic weekends) and social media cross-promotions.
We work with several syndicated TV programs to create fully integrated segments, which air during show broadcasts.
Our nationally syndicated broadcast partners, including Celebrity Page, Daytime, Dish Nation, The View and The Kelly Clarkson Show, have assisted in the execution of on-air promotions, sweepstakes and mentions. These customized segments vary in length from sixty seconds to three minutes and have aired on approximately 200 DMAs across the United States.
