Businesses or organizations considering a partnership with Joy FM often have questions as they consider the possibilities….questions like, “What sets a partnership with Joy FM apart from promoting on a commercial radio station?” This page has the answer to this question & any other questions you may have about Business Support on Joy FM!
A Business Partner is a business or organization that sees the value in the ministry of Joy FM and chooses to offer their financial support to Joy FM on a short or long-term basis and in exchange is offered on-air announcements for their business or organization.
Joy FM Business Partners receive on-air announcements as a result of their support. The number of announcements depends upon the terms of their sponsorship agreement. Business Partners agreeing to support Joy FM for 3 or more months will also receive space on the Underwriter section of our website, where we list contact information and provide a graphic link to the supporter’s website, if applicable. Our on-air jocks drive our listeners to our website on a regular basis for more information on events, contests, etc and as a result our website is well traveled.
We can sum that up in two words…………LOYAL LISTENERS! It’s true! Our listeners care about Joy FM, personally, as evidenced by regular calls and letters to the station sharing their experience and personal impact from our ministry. The result of this personal impact is a loyal listener…not just loyal to the music and its impact but one who cares about, and is often personally vested in, the on-going future of this ministry. As a result, our listeners keep their dials locked through the announcements to see what businesses are choosing to support the station that supports their life and values. Many business or organizations have had listeners just stop in, even if not needing their particular services, just to say “thanks” for supporting Joy FM.
