Is your business open during the COVID-19 Illinois stay at home order?
Are you working to continue to provide food, professional services, support and other services during this “shut down”?
WCKG wants to talk to you!
As you probably know, local businesses need help right now but many don’t feel strong enough to spend money on marketing and advertising. And yet now is the best time to advertise because it’s cheaper, everyone is paying a lot of attention to media, and people REALLY want/need certain things like carry out, delivery and other services.
I’ve found people don’t know what is open and when. And local businesses don’t really know how to get the word out and tell their story while they deal with everything else on their plates.
Since I have studios at home, and I am at home I will be locking myself in the studio and setting up interviews with area business owners and managers to help them share their story and local offers.
You will get their “15 Minutes of Fame” and we’re going to broadcast these interviews on WCKG, via our app, stream and on the WCKG iheartradio channel. We will also post these interviews on WCKG.com and all our social channels -so we can help some of these great businesses reach people who can help them stay open.
- If the workload becomes too heavy for me to handle alone, I might call on my fellow broadcasters who are equipped to help if they can.
- Right now, it would be great to get the ball rolling with some great food service businesses, as well as professional services like attorneys and other service based businesses.
