Why Your Station Needs to Create Radio Apps

Creating radio apps may not seem like a top priority, but limiting your station to a website, directories, or social media will only grow your listener-base so far. Radio apps are a better way to expand your reach. But apps are more than just a dedicated hub for your shows, they're an extension of your brand with tools like:

  • Customisable Look: Choose your style, add your app icon, and set your colours to brand your app your way.
  • Track Requests: Let listeners easily engage with your station by requesting tracks from the app.
  • Push Notifications & Campaigns: Add banners to your app and send your listeners push notifications for truly integrated campaigns.
  • Podcast: Add a podcast feed and your listeners will have access to all your content in one place.

Create a Central Hub For Your Listeners

Many new radio stations have trouble building a ‘home base’ for their brand. Websites are a great option, but some don’t have time to design a full webpage and others don’t have the money for pricey domain names.

Radio apps offer a fantastic alternative to websites. With a few taps of the screen, your listeners can listen in, on their way to work or wherever they’re going. Your apps can be personalised to reflect your brand and values, so listeners feel like they’re carrying your station in their pocket.
