Is your radio organisation planning to apply data-science to on-air content evaluation? You have a bumpy road ahead. Let us save you time and struggle by sharing with you the most common problems and how to prevent them.
Unlike the old model of consultancy in Radio, that is perceived as constraining by on-air teams, our final goal is to share a sustainable, continuous and creativity-boosting methodology for improvement.
Whether your organisation is a tightly budgeted small radio company or a large multi-million dollar actor in the broadcast industry, the main reason that keeps you away from a successful data strategy might be the same one. It’s not about affordability, but readiness.
1. Know when your listeners are paying attention.
2. Seek Time ENJOYED Listening, instead of TSL.
3. Visualise your power and assume your responsibility on-air.
4. Put listener engagement measurement in the hands of the on-air team.
The morning show “De Grote Peter van de Veire Ochtendshow” on MNM, the VRT station targeting young audience, will be conducting a pilot with Voizzup during the coming months for evaluating their contents daily, starting today.
On-air, programming, editorial, sound production, audience research teams need to embrace creation in short cycles and listener feedback at all stages in order to allow continuous improvement. Even if that requires that they come up with their own framework and terminology.
