Although I’m not a radio star, I recorded my first traditional media spot this week with a local radio personality Delana at KYMI. It was a spot regarding our experiences with the Tempur-Cloud sleep system (which you know I love!).
We recorded about 6-7 different 30 second sessions and the entire process only took about 15 minutes. I think I’m ready to try more traditional media. Maybe the local television stations need a money-saving segment?
Before moving on to other topics, did you know this song by the Buggles was the first video played on MTV. Despite video and digital music, there’s still a place for Radio!
Around the Web
Daily deal sites like Groupon and Social Living have moved into the travel sector. I discussed using group buying for vacation along with factors to consider at Couple Money this week.
