22 Leveraging Radio for insert HVAC Advertiser Insight Based Ideas
23 Insight #1 Housing is home. In President Obama’s February 12, 2013 State of the Union address, he said “our housing market is finally healing from the collapse of Home prices are rising at the fastest pace in six years. Home purchases are up nearly 50% and construction is expanding again.” This is confirmed by data published by Bloomberg in January indicating that the housing market will play a more central role in the U.S. economic expansion in 2013.New homeowners spend more in their first six months than established homeowners spend in 5 years. They need many products and services and haven't yet developed shopping loyalties.Sources: Barack Obama State of the Union Address, ; Bloomberg, 1/29/13; WelcomeWagon.com
24 Idea: “Housewarming”Together, Advertiser X and Radio Station partner to reach out and welcome new home owners to the community while providing them with all they need to make their home “warm & cool”.
25 Housewarming How it works: Radio Station establishes a relationship with local government offices or real estate professionals to get listings of individuals and families who recently moved to the area.Through a weekly Advertiser X branded segment, Radio Station provides a “warm & cool” welcome to the new neighbors on-air and online.Each segment asks listeners to tell the station if they are or have a new neighbor in their area to receive a shout out in future segments.
26 Housewarming How it works: Each listener mentioned in the Housewarming segments will receive a “Housewarming” gift from Advertiser X and the Radio Station to include:Special offer for Advertiser X services.Radio Station merchandise.Additional product/offers from other (non-competing) local supporting sponsors on the station.Radio Station creates an Advertiser X branded “Housewarming” page on the station’s website with information and a directory of local services for listeners new to the community.
27 Housewarming How it works: Advertiser X branded “Housewarming” page on the station’s website may also include social and interactive elements such as:Message board for neighbors to post a note welcoming their new neighbors and for the newbies to post questions to established members of the community (e.g. Where’s the best dry cleaner? Who delivers the best pizza? How do I get involved in recreational activity?, etc.)Radio Station personalities will post video tours of their community with all their favorite spots.Advertiser X and Radio Station “Welcome neighbor” e-card templates to introduce yourselves to your new neighbors.

The Radio Station new neighbor housewarming party is on X date and time at Y, Z location. It’s the warmest and coolest bash of the season where you’ll meet and greet your new neighbors, make new friends while listening to great music and winning some great prizes.

30 Insight #2 Climate Control The HVAC business is seasonal. Most HVAC repair and replacement jobs occur during the seasons when occupants are least comfortable with their climate.Sources: U.S. Department of Energy, Better Buildings Business Models Guide.
31 Comfort ZoneRadio Station and Advertiser X partner across all four seasons to keep listeners comfortable at home, in the office (and even in the car) regardless of each day’s climate and weather conditions.
32 Comfort Zone How it works: Radio Station will create a Heat and A/C feature to be integrated within or included directly adjacent to weather reports each day. For example:“Meteorologists predict a 7-degree rise in temperature today. This is the hottest summer since Is your central air operating to beat the heat? Call Advertiser X for a free evaluation.”These same features will be integrated on the Radio Station website alongside the online weather report and forecast.Advertiser X may sponsor the online feature and “skin” the weather feature with Advertiser X branding.
33 Comfort Zone How it works: In addition to the Weather report integration, Radio Station will create short-form Advertiser X “Cooling Quotes” and “Heating Quotes” messaging to run throughout day parts.Cooling and Heating Quotes can range in length from :05-:15 messages and quote scientific studies, university websites and health reports relative to the impact cold and heat can have on us.Cooling and Heating Quotes will also be featured in an Advertiser X ad unit adjacent to news on the Radio Station website.
34 Comfort Zone Example Cooling Quotes & Heating Quotes: Today’s Cooling Quote brought to you by Advertiser X: “Did you know that extreme heat can impact birth rates and sperm counts according to a Columbia University study? It is critical that your home be set to the appropriate levels. Advertiser X can tell you how….”Today’s Heating Quote brought to you by Advertiser X: “Did you know that in cold weather, a faster heartbeat benefits muscular and respiratory function, but in an unfit individual can also increase the risk of heart failure? Winterizing your heart is as essential as winterizing your home and exercise plays an important role. Make sure your home is ready for the workout. Advertiser X can tell you how….”
