CBAA Webinar Grow Your Listener Audience Online

WEBINAR: Grow your listener audience online - 14 February 2023

Joshua Cole, 6th February 2023

Community radio listeners are increasingly listening to your radio station in ways other than your FM frequency and DAB+. And with the popularity of on-demand and podcasts, are YOU telling your listeners on-air how to listen to your station? 

Like you, your listeners are busy and will listen to your station on the device they choose and at a time suitable to them. So it’s important to remind your listeners how they can listen and engage with your station. From station and industry mobile apps, smart speakers, desktops, TV and radio websites.  

This webinar will provide station managers, content directors and presenters with: 

  • The importance of integrating your online listening platforms 

  • How to promote your online listening options with FM and DAB+ 

  • Industry insights from ABC Radio, iHeartRadio Australia / ARN, Triton Digital and community broadcasters
