Using the web services provided by BC Media you open yourself up to a much wider market. Thus we, the web team, thought it imperative to give you an Outline Of How To Use Web Services. So here goes …
An Outline Of How To Use Web Services
This example outline will assume you have no website currently online.
1.) Build a mobile friendly website, sales funnel or landing page.
On average, depending on your business, visitors will view your site on a mobile device. It is a must you grab their attention immediately. With so many options for users your website needs to get an instant reaction.
2.) Pack your site with relevant content.
When you get someone to your site you have to give them something to read. Something to click on. A way to interact with your company. An example would be a person looking for debt consolidation. The first pieces of information you might want, 3 reasons you’re credit matters. This example give the user a feeling of the end result. Better credit by using your service. After that tell them how. i.e. contact us, call now, join our newsletter etc. Likewise, in the case of online stores and shopping carts have detailed descriptions, information charts and product shots as needed.
3.) Start professional SEO services immediately.
With the saturation of websites on the net today you have to take steps to stand out. Years ago being on page 2 or 3 of Google may have been okay. Today however, things have changed. Many people will not make it to page 2 or 3 of a search engine. SEO services will help your site rank naturally. This means that even when you are not running an Adwords campaign, you will still come up high enough to be seen.
4.) Start an Adwords campaign while your site is going through our SEO process.
Ranking a website organically take a bit of time. A great way to speed up the process is to run a mild to aggressive Adwords campaign. Focusing on various keywords and phrases around you product or service can have huge instant results in driving traffic to your site. Our team is happy to discuss options to get you running Adwords with your specified keywords. Adwords is also a great way to give niche sites a boost.
5.)Be ready to handle incoming inquiries
This is important and commonly overlooked. Thus we had to add it to an outline of how to use web services. How to deal with the influx of customer inquiries via phone and email. Do you have email responses ready? Many times most responses will be very similar. Get a few email templates ready for you to copy and paste whenever possible. Is your voicemail message current, professional and clear? Chances are you won’t be able to answer every call right away. If this is the case, make sure your voicemail message is updated. Be sure it is easy to understand and to the point. Offer alternate ways to contact you as well. Email, Text Message and leaving a message via social media are all options you should offer to the caller. As a rule, try to make it as easy as possible for the customer to buy from you.
So quickly, there is an outline of how to use web services. Naturally your detailed roadmap will look a bit different but the basics are all here.
Looking forward to customizing your roadmap soon!
The BC Media and Associates Digital Team is proud to announce the addition of Online Forms to Pre Qualify Job Applicants!
Companies using our traditional radio and tv commercials to advertise for job openings REJOICE! The Digital Team has met your demand with online forms to pre qualify job applicants. As we evolve our department to further support requests of our advertisers, look for more updates like these in the coming weeks. But for now lets roll out our online job applicant pre-qualification forms.
This new service is available to all our current advertisers regardless of industry. Cost is not included with any current campaign pricing however adding a pre-qualification landing page is very affordable. Basic design, implementation and 3 months of storage starts at under $500! A great deal to augment a planned successful hiring campaign.
Why Use Online Forms To Pre Qualify Job Applicants
Savings. Savings, of all kinds, is the reason why to use online forms to pre-qualify your job applicants. Our advertisers requested a way to pre-qualify applicants before they call HR or visit a hiring office. The best way is with a mobile friendly online form specifically designed for a corporate hiring phase. Advertisers wanted to know that an applicant at least met certain criteria BEFORE they get to an actual, physical, job application. Inadvertently we created savings on all fronts.
Outsourcing the job applicant data collection process to BC Media Digital saves hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars as well as:
– Time on part of the applicant
– Natural resources like paper, gasoline, electricity etc.
– Labor of greeting applicants or hiring a call center to take calls
– Data filtering can be saved if you would like us to pre screen applicant responses for spam.
I could go on but you get the idea. It’s a far better value to direct responses to online forms to pre qualify job applicants.
Qualifying Potential New Hires
Success in recruiting using Radio and TV advertisements relies on qualifying potential new hires before they fill out a physical application. Correctly pre qualifying potential new hires is as easy as quick online tasks or questionnaires. In short, using questions and tasks to test behavior response in candidates. Posting the form online saves you and the applicant time and money. Here’s an example.
For this example we’re looking to fill warehouse workers. Potential new hires will need to be able to lift 70lbs. and have attention to detail when picking orders. So how do we use online tools for qualifying potential new hires? A few questions should help us pick the right person to call an employee.
Pre-Qualifying “Are You Able To Lift 70lbs?” Example
Seems like a straightforward question for a straightforward answer. But the truth is most people don’t really know what lifting 70lbs feels like. Because applicants don’t really know what 70lbs feels like they will most likely respond, “Yes”, even though they might not be physically capable. How do we get a better, more honest response? How about this alternative question:
What is the heaviest object you lift or move most often? How often do you move the object?
– applicants have more flexibility to give an honest answer.
– gives the employer an idea of how repetitive task capable the applicant might be
– lets the employer decide how much weight the applicant really can lift
Asking a questions as above will give you, the employer more information about the applicant thus making it easier to select the right person. Now on to requirement 2.
Pre-Qualifying Attention To Detail While Picking Orders Example
Attention to detail is what every employer wants to know before hiring anyone. Will the new applicant be able to preform the tasks of the job in detail? Gauging an applicants attention to detail is something we set up throughout the online pre-qualification. For instance, at the beginning of the pre-qualifying form give direction “Leave any question you do not have an answer to blank”. Then give the following question:
Select the smiley face in the middle
Since there is only one smiley face, this question should be left blank. We will clearly see if the applicant is answering according to the directions at the beginning.
Auto Exit Feature
The auto exit feature is where the true power comes in. Since this is a qualifying form providing an early exit based on response is the easy way to omit candidates that do not meet hiring criteria. Just like a choose your own adventure book, the form questions and submit buttons can change direction based on answers. No need to alert the applicant with a discouraging message, we simply allow them to exit and advise them to wait the standard response time. Also available is an automatic Thank You declination email follow up. Ask us about that service.
BC Media Digital Is Here To Support You
Remember, BC Media Digital is here to support you in your radio and TV campaign. Online forms are just one way our web team can augment your commercials. We encourage you to reach out with any questions you have about using digital marketing to support you campaign.
When people say “Those Were Good Times”, what do they really mean? Are they talking about themselves or as a nation or, bigger yet, the world! How can you or I know or recognize a sign of good times. I’m going to go out on a limb and proclaim Help Wanted The Sign For The Times. When you see a help wanted sign I believe you are looking at the product of “Good Times”.
I won’t bore you with the part you already know … business is good so more employees are needed … recruiters and candidates pour in … but what happens when you run out of qualified people for these new job positions? You advertise to the ones who aren’t necessarily looking for you.
Help Wanted The Sign For The Times
Think about how many Help Wanted signs have you seen lately. Just about everywhere, right? We are seeing it here at BC Media and Associates too. More and more companies are turning to us to advertise open job positions on the radio and daytime tv.
…weekly pay of $500 or more while you are training
But enough about us. Lets look at some other industries that are seeking to fill deficits in labor.
Transportation, Truck Drivers and Equipment Operators
Many agree the first industries to need increased employees are transportation, truck drivers and equipment operators. You could say they are the front line. These three industries are the horse to the spur of the economy. Increase in consumerism, increased need for products on shelves which leads to an increase in the need for Transportation professionals, truck drivers and equipment operators.
These are the men and women that get all the stuff you want to buy to all of the places you want to buy it from. In fact1 by 2045 the weight of goods moved by truck will increase to 2273 Million Tons or at a rate of 4% per year. According to the chart that equates to 8,185 Billion Dollars worth of cargo.
As A Result
As A Result trucking companies are looking for drivers. Many companies are even offering to pay for Truck Driver School AND employ you while you are going to school. Some well known companies are advertising weekly pay of $500 or more while you are training to be a truck driver. That’s not a bad salary to start.
It is clear to the trucking industry that they have a shortage of drivers and they are reacting. However that need extends to warehouse workers as well, forklift operators, order pickers, truck mechanics … the list goes on and on.
Are you starting to believe Help Wanted: The Sign For The Times yet?
The Medical Field Is An Oyster
If you have ever thought of a career in the medical field now is a great time. Earlier this year CNBC highlighted the top ten in demand jobs that don’t have enough applicants. Surprisingly, healthcare takes up a good portion of the list. Number 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9, all of which are higher on the list than a truck driver (Number 10). Respectively those medical jobs are Home Health Aide, Medical Service Manager, Nurse Practitioner, Personal Care Aide and Physical Therapist.
All great career options, some paying over 6 figures per year! For this reason you may be hearing advertisements on the radio for Nursing School and Nursing Assistants at all hours of the day. The reason is there is such an employment demand in the medical professions that the best way to reach potential nurses etc. is to advertise on the radio as well as offering employment bonuses.
Believe It Or Not … Call Center Employees
Believe It Or Not … Call Center Employees are in demand too. Especially phone sales positions and patient customer service reps. We have reports of call centers offering up to $20/hour and sign on bonuses for time on the job. Commonly known to as a “turn and burn” type of employment, even small call centers are stepping away from the old boiler room feeling and encouraging employees to grown with the company.
Again, we see the increase in business, coupled with an increase for skilled labor.
Skilled Construction Workers
An industry that has been labor starved for quite awhile are the skilled construction workers. Our inside sources say “It doesn’t matter what trade you choose, you’ll have more work than you can handle.” Over the past decades there has been a steady decline in skilled construction workers as computers and tech in general took over.
Luckily, with some help, trade schools and even high schools are reaching out to youngsters offering starting salaries upwards of $40,000 per year working in the construction industry. Apprenticeship and paid tuition are also included in some cases.
Some Key Components To Understand Hiring Advertising In 2019
Primarily BC Media handles Radio and TV advertising on small, medium and mass scale. However, if you are a company or recruiter reading this, here are tips for success in advertising your hiring campaign.
1. Have a way for people to reach you online.
It’s 2018 now. Everyone has a smartphone and most likely they are going to want to use it or their computer to fill out preliminary information.
Granted this isn’t what most of the working world is accustomed to, but your potential employees are going to want to get some details before they get in their car to fill out an application.
2. Use your radio ad to direct traffic to your online application.
What if you, as a hiring manager, could pre-screen candidates using a simple online form containing a transparent pre-qualification information? Likewise, what if a candidate has the opportunity to quick information that makes them feel the job offer you have is not the right fit?
Think of the time that saves everyone. We make it easy to set up an online, mobile friendly, quick application when you choose to advertise you job opportunities with us.
3. Give every possible way for applicants to contact you.
When times are good some power shifts to the employee as it comes to the hiring process. People seeking employment from radio advertisements will be varied so offer any way for them to contact you that is convenient. Here’s the kicker to that … convenient for them.
Considering Help Wanted The Sign For The Times

There is no doubt Facebook and social media in general has changed the way we live and do business. But lets take a realistic look at radio or Facebook for small business advertising. While Facebook advertising may seem less expensive, ROI might say otherwise. In this article we will take a common sense approach. Factors will be common small business owners trying to create Facebook ads themselves. On the flip side will be using a company, like BC Media and Associates, to create and run a radio ad.
Which Is Better Radio Or Facebook For Small Business Advertising?
Small Business in our definition is any business that generates $1 to $1 million per year. On the high side, some might consider that medium business. But for our purposes we’ll call that small.
There are many aspects that are alluring when it comes to Facebook ads. You can start an advertising campaign for as little as $7! Wow! You can do it yourself which might “save the business money”. You can choose your target audience by their likes and dislikes. However when it comes down to brass tacks this is what most small business find out about Facebook. ———–>
Lack of real interaction is what they find. Maybe a few like your post. One or two like your page. But what most business owners are finding out is that Facebook advertising do not convert. Social Media advertising also take lots of work. Not only creating the ads themselves but monitoring and responding to them also. (That monitoring part is ALWAYS overlooked.) You see, the drawback is when you advertise on Social Media platforms people expect an immediate response. Most comments will “test you out” or “see if you would respond”. For small business owners this becomes a challenge. Often times resulting in dead conversation that just wastes time.
Now … about that $7 starting price tag. Lets explore that a bit more. For $7 on Facebook you will get seen by 500 – 700 people. That’s it. If you created an awesome ad you may get some engagement … but don’t expect much. Time for an monetary example. Given the numbers above lets say you want to reach 50,000 people.
So, 50,000 ÷ 700 = 71.42.
Then 71.42 x $7 = $499.94
From the math example it is clear. For about $500 you will be seen by approximately 50,000 people. BUT! That does not guarantee interaction or conversion.
What Do Others Say?
While we are discussing Radio or Facebook for Small Business Advertising, here are some interesting truths from around the web to back up this article. This article from chron.com states “Ispos and Reuters Newswire found that four in five Facebook users have never bought a product or service as a result of advertising on the site”. The article goes on to say “General Motors pulled its own ads … claiming advertising on the site [Facebook] was ineffective”.
Here is a nifty chart that from WordStream.com showing click through rate per industry via Facebook advertising. Lets take a look.
Depending on your industry you can see that using Facebook as a sole source of advertising will have a pretty low conversion rate overall. Additionally, the chart above has professional ads factored in. Ads that have gone through A/B testing to see which ones are more effective. Thus, keep in mind, “testing” Facebook ads is the same as running ads.
Are Radio Commercials Cheaper Than Facebook Ads?
As a small business owner one question that is 100% valid is “are radio commercials cheaper than Facebook ads?”. We think you might be surprised at the answer.
Radio ads aren’t just low maintenance … they are no maintenance. As the business owner, simply decide on a weekly budget and BC Media works within that budget to get you your desired listening times. However you do have options to participate in your radio ad. You can write the script. You can narrate the ad yourself. Or you can choose a “Do It For Me” approach and we will create the entire radio ad for you. Simple.
So now you know. With radio advertising you don’t have to monitor and respond, test and re-test like you do with Facebook. Small Business owners make a few key selections, approve the script and set the budget. BC Media will also provide tracking information on the calls or views to your landing pages. I’m sure you will agree, saving you time also saves you money, no doubt.
What About Cost Of Radio Advertising For Small Business?
Here is what will shock you. Small business owners asking “What about the cost of radio advertising for small business?”. “Is Radio Affordable?”. Or “I have a very limited budget, how can I afford radio advertising?”. As a basic response BC Media replies “$2 per 1000 listeners”.
So lets stack that figure for radio advertising against Facebook advertising.
Radio: $2 per 1000 impressions
Facebook: $14 per 1400 impressions (this is actually the writer being VERY generous. actuals are closer to 700-800 impressions depending on your ad.)
Given the information above, radio advertising has the potential to be far more effective. Radio is easier to implement than Facebook advertising and requires no maintenance or response monitoring like Facebook does. Dive deeper into the effectiveness with Radio Advertising in our article Facts on Radio Advertising Listener Base
The Focus Is Conversion
The focus is conversion with little effort on part of the small business owner. All aspect considered, Radio is by far the winner in this head to head battle. To quote Ron Popeil Radio has a “Set it and forget it” appeal that Social Media just can’t compete with. Radio advertising also pre-qualifies customers interested in your product or service. While on Social Media people can comment whatever they like, Radio requires them to honestly have a need. This pre-qualification eliminates wasted time on leads that are not truly ready for your product or service.
So What Is Your Take? Radio Or Facebook For Small Business Advertising?
Radio or Facebook for small business advertising? What will your choice be? While BC Media recommends you try both to gather your own results, resoundingly our findings are you will be happier with the ROI from Radio advertising. Contact us via email or phone for a free consultation on which option might be best for your business.
Why Web Services you ask? Your web presence is the most important piece of your marketing campaign. Web presence can be thought of as the central hub of your advertising campaigns. All points should lead to your website. For example, if a radio listener hears your ad, they may not have enough time to write down your number. The next best option for the listener is to use a search engine, like Google, to find you. There are other searches but I’ll save those for later.
Google searches are where SEO comes into play. What you will find if your website is not indexed correctly, even if someone searches your business name directly, you may not come up. That said, you can see the importances of a proper SEO campaign during your advertising push. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, a service we offer. Having your website in the highest position possible is the key to conversion.
Can’t Google Adwords Put Me On Top Of Searches?
Google has just changed the name of Adwords. The new name for Adwords is Google Ads. But to answer the question “can’t Google Adwords put me on top of searches”, the answer is “Yes”. However, here is the correlation with Google Ads (formerly Adwords) and Organic SEO. The amount of times a customer will see your business name on the search page.
Let’s break that statement down to an example. Potential customer searches, your Google Ad pops up on top. They see it, read it, but scroll down. Now that they have seen your business name and now you are able to build trust. This gives you an advantage over even the number 1 listing on Google. Now insert BC Media SEO Web Service. As the user scrolls down they see your business name again on the first page list. You are almost guaranteed to get a click on your SEO ranked link. Why? Because your business name subconsciously looks familiar to the user you are already established trust.
We Do Landing Pages And Sales Funnels Too!
Landing pages and sales funnels are great for short, highly memorable, goods and services. The importance of a landing page is to deliver fast information and give the user a clear cut way to contact your business. Landing pages can consist of video, text content and a contact form. Feeling a landing page or sales funnel is for you? Contact our Web Team.
Why Web Services? Because Your Customers Are Online Just Like You!
But we can’t leave out Social Media. For a business to be relevant today you must have your brand on all social media platforms. These can vary internationally however Twitter, Facebook, Instagram Google Plus and Pinterest are a MUST. But why? Why should you create social media accounts if your marketing model doesn’t revolve around being social?
The answer is simple. Your potential customers will look for your there.
For instance, a person watching TV at home always has their phone handy. They most likely are scrolling through their favorite social media platform periodically while watching TV. Then your commercial comes on. Immediately they scroll to the top and search your business name in whatever social app they are using. If they don’t find you there your chances of them looking elsewhere online are slim to none. Worse still their search may bring up your competitors!! The takeaway here is to meet your customers where they are at. And they are at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and Pinterest.
Why Do I Need A Website If I Have Social Media?
Clients will frequently ask “Why do I need a website if I have Social Media set up?”. As part of BC Media and Associates Web Services we do full website design. Having a full website is important to your customers because it gives them a central hub. Again, all road should lead to and from your website.
Studies show that when a user engages with your business online through one platform they will search for you on others. This is how your potential customers gain trust. Think of it like this … each “place”, like Google, Facebook, Twitter etc, that you list your business at builds more trust with the internet as a whole. The key role of the website is to connect all of your trusted locations online.
So there you have it. A wordy overview and explanation of the NEW BC Media and Associates Web Services. Now that you know why web services our team is ready to bring you the results. As a note, Web Services are available with or without a Radio or TV advertising campaign.
Living with the internet everywhere many may think that Radio Advertising should be abandoned. However, this article will show you facts on radio advertising listener base. In short, radio advertising is relevant more than ever before.
Using hard data courtesy of RadioCentre.org we’ll give examples of how to influence your target market. By the end, you will understand how combining BC Media’s TV and Radio options will increase your direct consumer response campaign dramatically.
First, lets start with a common sense example. No hard data necessary. Just a real life example of how people, much like yourself, will react to your advertising.
So you are watching your favorite prime time TV show. Like always a commercial comes on. The commercial is catchy and kind of memorable but shortly your show comes back on and you move on from the product or service you just saw.
The next day you are driving to work. From your favorite radio station you hear the same tag line or “Jingle” you saw in the commercial the evening before.
Local events and local news are two major points that no other medium can deliver the way radio can
Now we ask the question. How likely are you to be “Branded”? To put it another way … how likely are you to remember the product or service when you need it. The obvious answer is highly likely.
Facts on Radio Advertising Listener Base
Now lets look at the staggering numbers of radio advertisement. As of May 31, 2018 the total number of radio listeners was 228.5 million per Week! In numbers … 228,500,000. As of 2016 the total population of the United States in 2017 was 325.7 million. That means over 70% of America listens to the regular AM/FM radio each week. Thus, the numbers for regular radio out weigh any other advertising medium.
More than TV. More than Web Applications. And shockingly, over 45% more than streaming services and satellite services combined.
As you can see above, Radio, by far, is still the best way to reach the best amount of potential customers.
Radio Centre Study: Facts on Radio Advertising Listener Base
In an extensive test on brand awareness vs advertising mediums, Radio Centre looked at the impact of the following three groups:
Control Group – no advertising presented
Audio Visual Group – advertising like television commercials
Audio Visual with Audio Reinforcement Group – television commercials followed up with audio advertisement
Coffee And Mental Awareness
Looking at the graphic below we see the result of mental association versus category entry points or times when customers would buy.
From the diagram you can see the impact combined AV (Visual/Television) and Audio (Radio) advertising has. The grey line denotes where you brand awareness would be without any advertising whatsoever. Blue is AV or a TV commercial. Purple is AV combined with Audio reinforcement, a television commercial and a radio ad.
Note that the largest increases connect with the consumers emotions. Most notable are the “A Personal Reward” and “Feeling of Comfort”. To this BC Media asks … Are you more likely to buy a brand that makes you feel comfortable and rewarded? Of course you are.
Increased Trust and Category Entry Points
Earlier we mentioned Category Entry Points. When combined, media advertising method numbers show increased trust and category entry points. This proves that branding your business in different methods will convert customers when the time is right. No matter if it is a day or a month, when you have correct marketing in place and the category entry point (timing) is right, the consumer will choose your product. It’s all about establishing trust through your advertising.
Lets look at the chart showing the end result from combined AV and Audio marketing.
So, we see three sections again. Our Control (Grey), AV (Blue) and AV with Audio supplement (Purple). In numbers, using only AV or Television/Video advertising shows an increase of 23%. That is quite an increase over the control group, however notice the purple AV with Audio supplement increase. 6% over AV (Audio/Video) alone when combined with supplemental Radio advertising. Up to 29%!
The take away here … given the cost of radio advertising, especially with BC Media pricing, combining Television and Radio advertising will increase your ROI exponentially. The key is driving home brand awareness and trust for your brand. Given the scope of services, BC Media is your best option for start to finish TV and Radio marketing.
A final interesting talking point is the amount of local radio listeners via the internet. Surprisingly people choose to tune into local radio stations via the internet vs using a streaming service. Partly because of targeted advertising. Lets look at common sense reasons why. Primarily because people have come to rely on local radio advertising for upcoming local events and news. Local events and local news are two major points that no other medium can deliver the way radio can. Thus, as we discuss facts on radio advertising listener base the amount of people tuning in via the internet to local radio stations must be considered.
A Working Knowledge of Combined Advertising
Now you have a working knowledge of combined advertising because facts on radio advertising listener base are clear. Leave the details to us. Know that visual and audio advertising combined increases brand awareness. Staying within your budget still gets results. Combining mediums creates trust and emotional connection. Thus, every industry benefits from advertising in this way. Legal, Tax, Rehab Facilities, Automotive Sales and Repair. This is just a small list of the businesses BC Media assists in combined marketing. You can see a more extensive list on our About Page. BC Media creates TV and Radio ads that brand your business right.
Attention Radio Advertisers!
Generic Commercials Get Generic Results!
That’s right! Ideally, when you advertise on the TV and radio the goal is to convert consumers into customer. Thus enhancing your commercials with brand awareness is essential. In this article we’ll take a look at specific research why generic commercials don’t work as branded TV and Radio commercials do.
Testing Why Generic Commercials Get Generic Results
You may have guessed a ton of research has gone into testing why generic commercials get generic results. Some of the best research on brand awareness took place at Kansas State University in 2007. In an experiment with crayons, tissues and tortilla chips students rate the quality and price of products along with packaging.
If you don’t stand out, you’re left out!
For all 3 products: packaging rotated, products were stand alone, product in original package and lastly just the name of the product. Because products and packaging are random, we are looking at consumers natural reaction to the product name, packaging and quality.
Findings from the research concluded that people are far more likely to react to products that are packaged and branded. Take a look at these charts showing the test results.
Above you have charted evidence that brand awareness and packaging will lead to more conversions. In some cases you can see that presentation outweighs quality, largely apparent in the case of the Dollar Tree crayon.
What Do Crayons, Tortilla Chips and Facial Tissues Have To Do With Media Advertising?
Good question. In the examples above we are focusing on the perceived value increase of your product when branded correctly. In short, if you want to sell any product, especially on the radio or TV, you have to brand yourself in every advert. Therefore, make it easy for your potential customers to convert themselves.

Sounds crazy eh? “Radio Advertising Effects Google Ranking”. Outlandish. What would Google ranking possibly have to do with Radio advertising? The truth is … a lot. Let me explain.
Exploring How Radio Advertising Effects Google Ranking
At first glance your internet rank doesn’t seem connected to radio advertising. However, exploring how Radio Advertising effects Google ranking will shed new light on the connection between the two. By the end of this article you will know how all platforms connect by the same process. Although we will be focusing chiefly on Google and Radio, the connections between platforms is almost inevitable.
Radio Listeners Will Search First
Commonly when people are listening to the radio they are engaged in some activity. Be it working or driving, chances are they are not ready to write down your contact information. Enter the search engines. Most cases listeners will search your business name or key phrase. From there they will navigate to your website, then call you.
But how do searches effect your rank?
Even though the radio listener may or may not contact you, the act of searching your business benefits you greatly. First, Google knows that the listener interested in your product or service. Thus, Google will be more likely to suggest your site if the listener goes looking again. So now you know even if you don’t gain a customer immediately, a radio advertisement search helped your online presence grow.
Second, the higher volume of people that search your business name specifically will show Google that people are talking about you. If people are talking, and you don’t have negative reviews, you are more likely to come up in search results. Think of it like bell bottoms. No one likes them until everyone starts wearing them. Although reading that you may be tempted to search yourself a bunch of times … but it doesn’t work like that. Google knows it’s you.
But Wait … There’s More!
Third. You may not know, many other search engines feed off of Google. In turn your listing at alternate search engines like Bing or Yahoo! will begin to factor in your new found popularity with Google. Even international search engines can begin to index and show your site
Lastly, now this is the cherry on top. Sometimes Android devices will send notifications to the listener. Notification can ask to leave a review or if they are still interested in your service. Free advertising at its finest!
To quote a May 2018 BC Media article
