If I Handed You A Blueprint of 76 Specific Action Steps
To Improve Your Station’s Website
, Would You Be
Willing To Take Action Starting Today — So You Could
Begin Seeing The Results Tomorrow?

A message from Dan O’Day....

his will not make me very popular among some of my fellow radio professionals. I don’t know how to put this “diplomatically,” so I’ll just come right out and say it:

Most radio station websites are...not very good.

Many — I’ve got be honest — are awful.

By “awful”, I don’t mean they’re “not pretty” or “not fancy enough.”

By “awful”, I mean they’re a waste of the company’s money!

(Remember the part about my not being very diplomatic?)

Of course, I’m not saying yours is awful. After all, I haven’t seen it. But I do feel quite confident in predicting it’s not as good as it could — and should — be.

It’s Not Your Fault.

You’re a station manager or program director, not some Internet whiz kid. As a manager, you can calculate EBDIT while opening your mail. As a PD, you can break out the latest ratings trends while still half asleep.

But the Internet? You haven’t had the time (or desire) to learn how to create a profitable, ratings-enhancing website.

So you’ve assigned that task to someone else.

On The Other Hand, It Is Your Fault, Partly.

If you’re the manager or PD, your station’s website is your responsibility.

And that “someone else” who is handling your website needs your help.

Fortunately, that help is here with...
76 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STATION WEBSITE
by Dan O’Day
(97-page e-book) (PDF format)

100% Non-Technical

Although I’ve had a successful online business since 1997, I am not a Web techie. I can’t write a lick of HTML. (Heck, I can barely spell HTML.)

That’s why 76 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STATION WEBSITE is written in everyday English. No tech talk, I promise.

A few of the secrets, tips, and techniques do require your webmaster to do something technical. But in those cases, I explain it to you in simple English and tell you exactly what to say to your webmaster to achieve the desired effect.

Please Download This Book If...

You manage or program a radio station.

If you’re the station manager, read 76 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STATION WEBSITE and then have your PD read it.

If you’re the PD, read 76 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STATION WEBSITE and then either give it to your manager to read or — if you truly want to “fast track” your site’s dramatic improvement — prepare a 15-minute presentation for your manager, making recommendations based upon what you’ve learned.

Then both of you should sit down with your webmaster and explain:
  • What you expect from your website

  • How you plan to improve your website immediately

  • How you plan to start (i.e., with which of the 76 secrets, tips, and techniques.)
At first, your webmaster will be shocked that you’re taking such an active, informed interest.

And then your webmaster will be thrilled: At last, you’ll have given him some smart, easy-to-implement guidelines to help make your site an extremely valuable part of your operation.

Don’t Download This Book If...

I don’t want you to be disappointed. That’s why I’m telling you plainly:

Don’t download this book if you’re looking for lots of technical jargon. A successful station website is a marketing tool. That’s how I’ll discuss your site in this book.

Don’t download this book if you’re looking for a treasury of Internet sales ideas. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that kind of book. But I didn’t write this for your sales manager. I wrote it for the station manager and the program director. (And also for your webmaster — after the manager and PD have read it.)

Don’t download this book if you’re looking for a rehash of tired ideas you’ve seen elsewhere. 76 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STATION WEBSITE combines the latest, state-of-the-art research on Web usage with my own expertise in communicating to radio’s “customers (i.e., listeners and advertisers).

In fact, that leads to another warning:

Don’t download this book if you’re not already familiar with my expertise in radio programming and/or radio advertising. If I haven’t already proven myself to you in some other book, seminar or consulting environment, why would you put your faith in my 76 recommendations for your station website?
