You Can Still Find Investors Through The Radio
Getting investment for any business is a challenge for most entrepreneurs and other business executives. It takes a lot of planning and assessment to find the areas of a company that would benefit most from additional investment, and even more effort to plan how that benefit is applied.
But just knowing how to improve a business through investment still doesn’t solve the initial dilemma of secur-ing that investment in the first place. While some people are fortunate to have sizable funds in place already, or a wealthy background or family on which to rely on for funding, that, by and large, is not the way most busi-nesses grow.
For most enterprises, especially those growing beyond the medium size, the amount of funds required to de-velop is too large for any one individual fortune to accommodate, so outside investment must be secured. This, in itself, requires a lot of planning, effort, and financing. There are many ways to go about trying to secure more investment, but one of those ways remains using the great American tradition of radio.
Why Radio Matters
Radio, at least originally, was considered one of the “mass market” media. It’s an older technology that broad-casts a signal through the air. As a result, anyone with a radio receiver tuned to the appropriate frequency and within the broadcasting range can hear that content. For decades, radio has been one of the primary forms of entertainment as well as education and information dissemination for Americans. Today, it is still an important medium, and one that is regularly listened to by millions of Americans either while at work, or in a vehicle and driving.
One of radio’s biggest strengths has always been its ability to reach thousands, even hundreds of thousands or millions of listeners with a single message. It has a reach and instant accessibility that few traditional media, like print, were ever able to reach, and mobility that contemporary media, like television, often couldn’t match, since televisions were fixed points installed in buildings. In contrast, radios are something in every vehicle and, in re-cent decades, potentially every pocket as well.
The Changing Face Of Technology
However, radio, as with many other media, has undergone some changes as technology has advanced. There are new formats, and even new methods of transmission that may still be categorized as radio, but no longer actually use radio frequencies to broadcast. The general public, for example, now often has the option to listen to radio content digitally, either directly through an ethernet cable connection wired to the Internet, or through wireless alternatives.
Moreover, one of the few inconveniences of radio, the live transmission aspect, is less of an issue in the digital age. As radio has transitioned over to recorded content that is both traditional broadcast and transmitted on the Internet, that content can now be accessed at a later time, on-demand. “Podcasts,” for example, can be argued to be the new, digital equivalent of a radio talk show, except that users are no longer confined to having to listen at a specific time to hear the content, and can consume it as and when they feel like it, whether that is driving to work, or jogging out in the park after work.
Reaching The Right People
Because so many people listen to the radio, whether in broadcast or digital format, this is still a sizable audience of listeners that may hear the message you want to get out about the investment potential in your business. Provided that you deliver your message in a concise, memorable way, and leave you the relevant contact details, you can generate viable investor leads through radio broadcast. Thanks to the preservation of these broadcasts in digital format, it’s no longer a significant concern either if listeners don’t get all the details the first time; many have the option to go back and replay segments for the appropriate contact details.
Of course, one thing to keep in mind with investor leads from radio broadcasts is this is a mass-market approach. It is not targeted precisely towards a target market. Instead, it relies on the law of averages, with the probability that if a sufficiently large number of the general population is exposed to the marketing, some percentage of that population will be receptive to the marketing and respond.
How Wall Street List Can Help
Leads from radio broadcast involve a few layers. To gain the benefits of the leads, a contact point must be created for interested customers to engage with. This can be a physical mailing address, an email address, a website, a telephone number, or even a text messaging/SMS number depending on the type of strategy and promotion plan you are executing.
It can take time to compile the list of leads that are generated by radio broadcast as these leads will slowly come in at various times throughout a radio broadcast campaign. In some cases, if the broadcast is recorded and preserved on the Internet, there may even be a constant “trickle” of new leads from time to time, and more people discover the marketing.
Wall Street List can save time on collecting and compiling radio broadcast investor leads and present them in a complete list. This takes much of the “sweat equity” away from you, as it does require a lot of effort and organization to handle inquiries and translate them into leads that a business can use. With the Wall Street List, all that administration is removed, and you can sit back and receive the lists, allowing you to concentrate on moving your projects ahead.
