Have some questions about JOTA Radio Apps
Good Questions to Ask
You bet… We have a local advertising platform like no other.
Why would you devalue your app with external ads that generate little to no revenue? External ads worsen the user experience because they aren’t relevant to your local market. The JOTA Advertising Platform is designed to provide space that you can sell to your local sponsors, at a price that you see fit. You can dedicate ads to specific features in the app, or rotate a collection of ads. You can provide descriptive text, images, and a call to action. Your listeners can click to look at all the information in the ad, then minimize without leaving the app. A perfect compliment to the spots you already sell on air.
Our goal was to provide an ad platform that provides better value for your current advertisers
If you’re a small to midsize station, local is important. National ads that make your listeners leave the app on an accidental click doesn’t provide value for your station or your listeners. Every feature in the app has the option for ad space, though it is not required. Listeners can click on an ad, and the ad window smoothly rolls up. The listener can see the title, image, content, and click a call to action of they wish. This provides a real ad space for your sponsors, as opposed to the obtrusive banner ads you find with other advertising platforms. You can easily sell enough spots to cover the cost of your app, plus a little extra something we like to call profit.
Of course you can. Your station isn’t a static blob, so why should your app be.
You can update the colors, content, your stream, add podcasts, news feeds, events, advertisements, and much more. When you keep your content fresh, your listeners keep coming back to your app. This provides value for your station, value for your listeners, and value for your sponsors.
JOTA Radio Apps are designed specifically for Radio Stations.
You’ll find a lot generic app solutions that claim to be a “fit all” solution. We took a different approach. We listened to radio stations and learned about the features that matter most to them. JOTA Radio Apps are designed to compliment your station, an extension that allows you to interact and engage with your listeners.
Just like your broadcast station or internet radio station is designed to make money, so is the JOTA Radio App. Sell ad space for your local market; a better experience for your listeners, a better experience for your sponsors.
We use MP3 formats, that most widely accepted format across different devices.
Your streaming provider should be able to provide you MP3 URL that can be used within the app.
Absolutely. With JOTA Radio Apps, it takes less than 30 seconds to change your streaming source.
A major downfall of using a free app provided by your streaming company is the lack of flexibility you have. If you decide to switch streaming companies… you lose your app, and your listeners also lose your app. With JOTA Radio Apps, it takes about 30 seconds to change your stream source. Flexible and easy.
Quick. We do all the heavy lifting.
In most cases, you can begin adding content the same day or the next day after you sign up. With most radio app builders, you need to spend a significant amount of time learning how to lay out your app, add features, and more. With the JOTA Radio App Builder, we do all the heavy lifting for you. You just need to add content. Our easy to use content management system (CMS) has a simple and intuitive layout, with a guided help tour built into every feature.
Our goal is to get you app published as soon as possible.
We need an app icon and background images for your app. For the app stores you will need to create an app name, keywords, short and long descriptions, feature graphic, and promo graphic.
Security is important for any type of technology product.
We provide SSL, Captcha requirements, and all that other good stuff.
