The Secrets of Time Shifting Radio

Consumers are demanding it and every medium is rushing to give them what they want.

Except radio.

And that is going to have to change for the obvious reason and because radio stations, former employees and entrepreneurs can do radio time shifting perhaps better than other media.

TV networks, losing audiences by as much as 30% compared to only a year ago are reluctantly finding ways to time shift content as the DVR (time shifted content) has become more crucial to their ratings and revenue.

And now radio will have to learn how to time shift as well or fall further behind.

Netflix has made a sizeable investment in creating original programming such as the acclaimed House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black.  Amazon just announced it will manufacture and market a new streaming box.

Broadcasting risks becoming totally irrelevant to audiences that expect to enjoy content on-demand.

Time shifting radio is a serious topic and not suitable for just a panel discussion.  It’s prominently on the curriculum at the 2014 Media Solutions Conference March 26th in Philadelphia.

Media Solutions Conference Curriculum:

1.  Disrupt your radio station

Blow it up without losing your loyal fans.  Gain audience by attacking all the things digital age listeners hate about radio before a digital competitor does.  Study the plan to drastically alter and destroy the old structure the way Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and Netflix did.

2.  Master digital

Learn how people you probably don’t know make millions of dollars in digital without running commercials or even selling banner ads.  It is being done right now but traditional media isn’t doing it.  Consider this your game plan.

3.  Most effective social media strategies

Social media shakeup alert!  Instagram is ousting Facebook.  Twitter is in trouble despite its IPO.  Horror of all horrors – texting with pictures is where you should be but social media is no longer just about staying connected so if your radio station is relying on today’s social media, this is a heads up.

4.  Reverse the decline of radio listening

Learn the most effective approach to reinvigorating a radio station that is under attack from digital competitors.  The secret is in one paragraph you will want to memorize as your credo.  We will brainstorm together on steps that will guarantee that you will find new radio listeners by outsmarting digital competitors.

5.  Succeed at short form video

No matter what kind of content your create, it must include short form video.  But short form video is no longer your children’s YouTube.  There are new risks, new rewards and endless ways to create video content that is compelling and financially rewarding.  We will cover it.

6.  Engaging 80 million Millennials

They hate radio.  And use music like toothpaste.  But there is a way to engage Millennials.  I will share my work in generational media that indicates this young and massive audience is available to traditional media such as radio, TV and the record industry but not by continuing the status quo.  You’ll come away knowing their hot buttons and their turn offs.

7.  Time shifting radio

All content must be available on-demand – everything.  The audience is demanding it and every medium except radio is responding.  How to create time shifted radio content.  Whether to rely on over-the-air broadcasts for time shifting or create new content.  How to market time shifting as a new stream of revenue. Go to school on time shifting.

This is a valuable one-day seminar presented by Jerry Del Colliano March 26, 2014 at the Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia with the assistance of clinical guest faculty.
