Among the findings in the study, 62 percent of the United States’ 12+ population are now weekly online audio listeners. 28% of the population are weekly podcast listeners, with the audience more diverse. Smart speaker ownership has risen to 33% of Americans 12+, up from 7 percent in 2017. Of those who own at least one smart speaker, 34 percent of those have three or more devices in their household. 88% of Americans 12+ own a smartphone, another year of growth from 85% last year. Tablet (51%) and smartwatch (18%) ownership have plateaued, meaning the smartphone is by far most popular device for media consumption. – Edison Research and Triton Digital’s “Infinite Dial 2021”
TBJS Radio Network Media Kit
We invite you to read through our media kit thoroughly so you don’t miss all that we have to offer any business. We can custom make an advertising campaign to fit just about any sized of a budget. Considering all the services we have to offer across three different websites, we’re bound to have something your business could benefit from.
Both: Near and Far
When you think of online radio, your first thought is “nobody listens” or “if I want a jukebox, I can listen to my phone.” Truth is, TBJS Radio Network isn’t that at all. We get listeners from all over the world, including our military soldiers serving overseas looking for a simple taste of home. Things like that is what makes good radio: Being Local.
TBJS Radio Network is a LOCAL online radio station based in Poteau, Oklahoma that runs like a normal radio station. The only major difference is how we reach our audience. We may not be easily accessible as turning on your car stereo, but we reach out farther to more people. Plus, we can be heard on our Android App. We can also be heard across many other platforms including Amazon Alexa (using our skill), our Roku Channel, TuneIn, iTunes, Vtuner devices, as well as your landline. Our affiliates list is on our website.
Social Media – As it seems each day, more and more businesses are jumping onto social media to help push their products and services. We use platforms like Facebook, Audioboom, Soundcloud, and Twitter for several reason, allowing our audience to interact with us while they listen to TBJS Radio Network.
TBJS Radio Network Website – If you have visited TBJS Radio Network website (www.tbjsradio.com), you may have noticed there is room for banners. This is another way for your business, product, or service to be displayed. For a small fee, we can put your business in view of our listeners, letting them know more about your best asset,….you!
The Big John Show Website – The TBJS website (www.thebigjohnshow.com) gets a lot of traffic. We provide a wide range of information that our listeners cannot seem to get enough of, ranging from Country music news, TBJS Calendar of events, and to our blog, there is something for everyone to see. In addition, why not have them see your business, product, or service advertised or sponsoring that information?
Advertising Audio Production
Let’s say you’re not looking to advertise with us, but you need an advertisement made to be heard on another radio station, website, or background on a presentation. Well we can still help! Whether you need help with radio station imaging, an extra voice, or radio Ads to promote your goods and services, we have a quick turn-a-round of 24 to 48 hours (but don’t usually take that long). Once you’ve paid for the ad, it’s yours for life! No royalties, no extra fees for use on multiple places.
…And if you DO decide to advertise with TBJS Radio, if we need to create your radio ad, it will cost an additional ONE TIME $5.00 production fee to each new audio produced, no matter the size (:15, :30, :60, ect…)
Anytime we broadcast a live event on TBJS Radio Network, that is a great opportunity to get your business known. When technically and geographically allowed, along with written permission from promoters and venues, we can broadcast play-by-play sporting events, shows, and concerts.
TBJS Radio Network Facebook Live – This allows everyone to see what we can do at LIVE events and gives some behind-the-scene clips. This also offers visual advertising opportunities for your goods or services (i.e. utilizing “Product Placement”).
Lower Advertising Cost
Now here is the bottom line: we do not have the high cost as over-the-air radio. Nor do we want you to waste your money on methods and techniques that has less of a chance succeeding as winning the Mega Millions Lotto. For example: most AM / FM radio stations will eventually try to sell you a “Remote Broadcast” (broadcast from your business for about 2-3 hours to attract customers). Usually, something like that will cost you about $400 to $500. Those usually have about a 50% chance of success, depending on the event, weather conditions, and business. You could use that money instead to advertise on TBJS for a much longer time than 2 or 3 hours.
