Do you want to be the expert and a thought-leader in your industry? If the answer is yes, you can use SLMALive's B2B internet radio network to host your own radio program!

You can also have commercials on other programs to influence thousands of listeners/pre-buyers per month. The program will reach listeners at work, through your website, by subscriptions to iTunes, via your blog, or newsletter, and even through an email blast. The cost per listener from these combined sources can be $.45 cents to a $1 per listener. SLMALive is an internet radio channel dedicated to broadcasting programs devoted to the subjects of marketing, sales and vertical industry subjects. The programs on our network create multiple reusable content for the program owners. 

Internet Radio is Different

The format for radio is conversational, not PowerPoint based. It has a guest oriented format that is not scripted. Interview customers, present case studies, talk about new products, discuss the technology, be creative. Your internet radio program is easy to follow via iTunes or on an at-work computer while other work is being done. There are few commercials, but lots of learning moments for the listener. For the show's producers, internet radio keeps giving long after the live event either as a replay or in a dozen other ways.

Internet Radio Reinforces your Brand

You can name the program after you or your company. Or you can invite a broader

audience by naming it after the industry. If you sell exhibits, which is better? ABC

Exhibits Radio or Trade Shows Today Radio? Be creative..

The SLMALive network targets three audiences:

  • At work listeners
  • iTunes Subscribers
  • Post show consumers of content (see list below)

Using the content:

75% of the benefit of your show is the creation of content for the content hungry pre-buyer. These people may not have raised their hands and revealed themselves to you.  They are not yet a lead, but they want to know more about you and the industry.  You gain credibility with each program.  Offering this content in an easy-to-access manner drives up listeners week by week. The content from the shows can be used in many ways: 

  • Live  broadcast
  • On your home page (player with program lists)
  • In your blog (with a player) of the show)
  • eMail promotions: blasting links for specific shows (track who opens and listens)
  • YouTube (yes it can be done)
  • Interviews as a basis for white papers
  • Copy for articles
  • Testimonials: from guests.  Printed quotes and sound bites.
  • Transcripts: Feeds articles books blog, newsletters, etc.
  • Tweets: During the program and afterward
  • Snippets of text or voice taken from the program recording for your web site.
  • Guests put the show on their computer.
  • Your program can be syndicated and played from partner's websites.
