August 16, 2016
Had your marketing budget cut? Join the club! Here are three relatively low-cost, visual dog- and-pony shows that you and your promotions team can use to lure TV cameras into giving you some exposure. Get rolling on these now for 4th quarter 2016 and 1st quarter 2017.
- Dog-o-ween. Listeners dress their dogs up for Halloween and your panel of judges chooses the most creative getup for a big prize.
- The 7.99 Meter Run. Americans will be impressed that you ran 7.99 meters, but metric-system Canadians know that is only about 26 feet. KINK-FM in Portland throws a beer party at the finish line.
- The Cardboard Classic. Find a snowy hill in your listening area and challenge listeners to build sledding contraptions out of cardboard. WMMR Philadelphia draws huge attendance and every TV camera in town annually.
