Shout-Outs from Dave Ramsey
The Dave Ramsey show is one of the fastest growing radio programs in the country. The show bills itself as “the voice of financial wisdom in today’s debt-ridden lifestyle.” Part of their success Dave’s no-nonsense advice dished out to those lucky enough to get through after waiting on hold all afternoon. My favorites are the “stupid tax” stories.
In addition to not allowing credit cards to purchase items in their online store, the show is fanatical about who they let advertise with them – even firing advertisers if they breach consumer trust or violate the show’s strict code of ethics and conduct.
So, it was a big deal when one of our clients, Carothers Crossing, worked out an advertising arrangement on the Nashville-based show. If you’re familiar with talk radio, you’ll know the format: advertisers get a personal shout-out from the host. This format is great because it’s similar to word-of-mouth – a trusted referral sent to thousands of captive listeners.
The transcripts from the ads are here. Or you can download the MP3s:
P.S. Dave is coming to Charleston soon if you want to see him in person.
