FAIRFIELD, Conn., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Long Island, N.Y. and Santa Rosa, Calif. are the fourth and fifth radio markets in the country to benefit from the launch of The Media Dash™ and its web-based, self-serve radio advertising platform.
Charter clients on Long Island Media Dash (www.LongIslandmediadash.com) are JVC Media, headquartered in Ronkonkoma, N.Y. and the Aloha Station Trust, based in East Patchogue, N.Y. The initial broadcast partner on Santa Rosa Media Dash (www.SantaRosamediadash.com) is Maverick Media, based in Santa Rosa.
The Media Dash Local is an easy to use, web-based platform that allows advertisers and broadcasters to buy and sell streaming and on-air radio content. Advertisers visiting the portal follow four simple steps to buy ads: 1) Search for ad offerings; 2) Select a package that best fits their needs; 3) Upload a commercial or work with The Media Dash to create one; and 4) Check out. The broadcaster dashboard allows station managers to customize ad offerings including campaign start and end dates, length of spots, day parts and rates. Ad spots are sold on a week, two week and month-long basis.
"We are always looking for ways to engage local businesses and provide them with access to our listeners," said John Caracciolo, president and CEO of JVC Media.
"Small businesses are so busy managing and running their companies. The guided step-by-step interface from Long Island Media Dash makes it easy for our potential customers to place advertising schedules on our stations, wherever and whenever it's convenient for them," said Jim Condron, vice president and general manager, WALK-AM/FM, Aloha Station Trust LLC.
"Santa Rosa Media Dash makes it easy for us to sell advertising content by simply uploading available campaigns onto the web-based dashboard," said Gary Rozynek, CEO and president of Maverick Media. "In addition, it allows us to attract a different set of advertisers who wouldn't normally consider radio advertising."
