Local Radio Spot Proves Effective for MSCO

Local radio advertising has become a staple of our personal advertising strategy. Throughout the years, we’ve had multiple different spots on various stations in the New York City Metro area. This has allowed us to analyze and study our results from each test. By running ads during different day parts, on different days, on different stations, and with different messaging, we are able to examine our traffic and compare the results against each other to see what truly works best for us.

Our company has been around for over 20 years, so we have a little bit of an advantage when it comes to knowing who our clients are, what they want to hear from an ad, and when they want to hear it. However, we wouldn’t have this knowledge if we didn’t actually test the market and actively analyze our results. That being said, it’s extremely important for local radio advertising to be consistent. There’s nothing worse (especially for a marketer) than starting a campaign on local radio that has a lot of promise and then giving up before you really have a chance to see the results. With radio, you want to make sure you’re reaching the audience multiple times so they have a chance to really hear what you’re trying to say.

I’m sure you’ve heard one or two variations of our spots over time, but have you heard our newest addition? Click the link below to hear our latest local radio ad where Mark sits down and explains just a few of the things that we can do for your company or business at MSCO.

This unique interview format typically works really well on the radio, and our adaptation is proving to be highly effective (as you may have guessed from our previous post).

Coach Lynn, as he’s known by most, assists New York fathers with job searching & job applying, housing situations, and child support. He also makes sure that fathers know how to prepare meals and understand the importance of staying fit. Stevan is willing to help with essentially anything a struggling father may need.

Our Marketing Company’s Holiday Outing


MSCO Takes to the LanesLast night, the employees of our Westchester marketing company went out and enjoyed a bit of holiday cheer together at
FunFuzion bowling and arcade. Westchester’s biggest indoor amusement park didn’t disappoint our marketing company as we bowled for hours under the blacklights and enjoyed some quality time outside the office. 

Tommy Jay came equipped with his own bowling balls and shirt from his high school bowling team. He put up the high game for the night at 137. Not to be outdone, Ligia Barao and Jon Soniker also put up strong scores giving Tommy a run for his money as MSCO bowling champion. I even broke 100 in one game! Overall, it was a fun team building night for our marketing company.

Me After Bowling a 100 Game

So that was our holiday party. We hope you enjoy yours. From our entire marketing company family, happy holidays and have a  great new year! Before you know it, it will be time to get back to work.
