Netmio.com Marketing and Promotions
Netmío.com was "marketing advantaged" by being the
exclusive network of Hispanic Broadcasting
Corporation due to HBC's leadership position as the
largest Spanish language radio broadcasting company
in the United States. Developing Netmío's relationship with the radio
stations allowed it to benefit from on-air, event,
contest, and other promotions. Of course, execution
came from Netmío's great team members.
The team continuously worked with HBC programming
staff to do live mentions of web site features on
the air. We also used live in studio
web cams to
gather more promotion. The team also managed an
on-air inventory for recorded commercials which
promoted site features and frequently had client
mentions in them.
Recorded promo samples:
The team worked with HBC promotions staff for
large station events throughout the country
resulting in increased awareness and visibility of
the web site. The team also managed
performances at some of the larger events.
Netmío was also integrated onto station
and station vehicles
throughout the country.
Print & Other
The team worked with the station promotion staff to
insure that the Netmío logo was close to the
station logo on any print ads, tickets,
and frequently integrated onto the station logo
Apart from prominent placement in major search
engines, the team worked with other relevant web
sites for links back to Netmío and in some cases we
advertising campaigns which support both the web
site and the radio stations.
Netmío's team moderated dozens upon dozens of chats
many with music, tv, and movie celebrities but also
with political dignitaries, mayoral debates, INS
officials, health professionals, radio
personalities, and many more. These chat sessions
included the guest chat room along with an
accompanying live web
cam that made the event more real.
Some of our guests included:
Cheech Marin, NYC Firefighters,
Pilar Montenegro, Ana Barbara,
Kumbia Kings, Roselyn
Sanchez, and many more.
With its own marketing budget and mainly working
with the promotions from the radio stations, the
Netmío team managed several hundred contest
