For new clients, the minimum spend is $53,500. For existing clients, it must be 10% more than they spent over the prior year.

SCA’s head of regional strategy and development for sales, Joel Feuerherdt, said the company is thrilled to be working with Qantas Business Rewards to bring more value to its customers.

“As a media business operating in local communities, we are committed to supporting local business,” he added.

“Our own research has found that local advertising works and grows business. Radio’s immediacy and engagement makes it the perfect place to advertise.”

SCA’s research also indicates its audiences are passionate about supporting local businesses, with 93% agreeing that locally owned businesses are an essential part of the community, and more than eight in 10 saying they feel proud to purchase from locally owned businesses.

To get the word out about the Boost Your Business campaign, SCA will rely on its owned assets including TV, radio and audio ads, as well as social posts, YouTube and retail out-of-home.

“As a media business operating in local communities, we are committed to supporting local business”.

Just because you have a transmission tower in town, doesn’t mean you are a part of the community. That would require you to re-hire all of the staff you let go, resource each market and you know invest instead of cut.

But sure, add Soundcloud, 2CH, Sonos and QANTAS points to your “toolbox”, if you can’t sell your audience to an advertiser, you may as well bribe them.

I must have a couple of answers… I made budget for the quarter 16 days ago.

No steak knives. No toasters. Just results.

Thanks though.

Incentive is a lunch, giving a buyer a credit equal to cash for their own personal gain… Isn’t.
