22 Aug Use the internet to make more radio ad sales
I have met some very enterprising Account Executives through my travels and there’s a movement now that I thought you should consider. Radio/TV reps all over the country are marketing their services on social networking sites like LinkedIn.Com, Facebook.Com, Twitter.Com, Ziggs.Com, and Ryze.Com.
Here’s a brief overview of each site:
