Thank you for allowing us to serve your Ministry! We have selected a few Ministries from our directory that we would like to run a new feature by. We have also placed a banner within your Studio regarding the same. It may be something you would like to utilize for your Ministry… and, it will not cost you anything extra! : )
We have been working with a company called AUDIONOW (http://audionow.com). They provide a service that makes your media accessible through a standard phone number (live “real-time” streams, or on-demand). No smart phone technologies or data plan required by the end-listener.
AudioNow helps broadcasters and ministries grow their audience, on any mobile or land-line phone. They work with such entities as the BBC, United Nations CSPAN, and also hundreds of faith-based programmers, including Adventist World Radio, Bible Broadcasting Network, Christian Satellite Network. Each day, AudioNow sends e-mail statistics showing how many people called you the day before, the time of day, and length of call – so you can really measure who you’re reaching with both live and recorded audio programs. Great for your low-tech listeners, or those with limited technologies / access or who want to save on their data bills.
As mentioned, there is no fee for the service – they just ask that you do all you can to promote your number so that it gets accessed!
Your assigned “AudioNow” phone number will have 2 extensions:
– extension 1 will pull from one of your Studio generated RSS feeds, and make its most recent on-demand episode/message available.
– extension 2 will allow the caller to enjoy your live streams (at your scheduled times). Anyone withOUT an internet connection can simply dial the number and join the live broadcast in real-time.
We are currently working out the details with AUDIONOW… but I thought you might be interested. I think it is a great tool to add to your outreach tool-box!

Please let us know if you would like to be a part of this pilot project (we are looking for just a few Ministries at this time), and we will get you setup for a test-drive!
