B2B Advertising: Why Job Sites Depend On Fort Myers Radio

Sep 2, 2021 2:01:18 PM / by Larry Julius

If you were one of the 831,247 adults who tuned in to Fort Myers radio last week, then chances are excellent that you heard advertising for ZipRecruiter.  That's because the company purchased 764 advertisements to air on local stations during the month of August, according to Media Monitors.

ZipRecruiter is an online recruitment site that helps companies of every size advertise open jobs. Overall, more than 2.8 million companies have posted an opening on ZipRecruiter.com

It is no wonder that ZipRecruiter and its competitors like Indeed have been making significant advertising investments on Fort Myers radio. Finding qualified workers is one of the toughest challenges facing local business owners. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of job openings in the U.S. has reached a record high 10.1-million jobs with just not enough candidates to fill them.

If you've heard these commercials on Fort Myers radio, then you know that ZipRecruiter is not advertising to attract job seekers to its website.  Rather, the company's goal is to convince local business owners to buy help wanted ads from them.

So, why has ZipRecruiter chosen Fort Myers radio as a business-to-business (B2B) advertising resource?  The first reason is revealed in the first line of their commercial.

"According to research," says the announcer, "82% of people remember radio ads."

Who Listens To Fort Myers Radio Stations Online?

Aug 27, 2021 3:01:20 PM / by Larry Julius

Before Fort Myers radio station WFTM signed on in 1940,  local listeners were dependent on broadcasts from distant cities such as Miami and Tampa. These early stations required tall antennas and miles of buried copper cable to transmit their signals.  Most radio receivers at the time were mostly handmade and involved a piece of crystalline mineral and a wire coil.

Over many decades in Fort Myers, both the broadcasting and receiving equipment improved. In the mid-1920s this meant store-bought radios. In the 1930s this meant car radios. In the 1960s this meant transistor radios. In the 1970s this meant boom boxes. And, in the 1980s this meant Walkmen. But, despite these improvements, the fundamental technology of big towers sending a signal through the air to a radio receiver remained the same.

In 1994, there was a new way for Southwest Florida consumers to listen to the radio. That was the year local stations across the country began streaming their signals over the internet and listeners could use their computers (later their smartphones and smart speakers) as receiving devices. No big antennas, no wires, and no actual radio needed.

In 2021, according to Nielsen, Fort Myers radio reaches more local consumers than any other advertising media option.

Neilsen finds, too, that 31% of all consumers who listen to a Fort Myers radio station over-the-air will, at some point during the month, also connect to a local station via the internet.
