How long will it take before we sign our first radio station?
Timelines can and will vary. Ultimately, our success will be contingent upon the quality of your show, market competition, and overall industry acceptance. RadioLinx's strategic selling approach ensures on-going professional management of the selling cycle and proven closing techniques utilizing a "consultant" sales approach. After an initial launch and general awareness campaign, successful shows generally realize their first affiliate after 90 days and continue to attract additional new affiliates to their syndicated radio network on a continual basis. RadioLinx can provide more specific projections upon a full review of your program or product. In many cases, a targeted regional Flanking Syndication approach can yield better initial results than a national strategy.
