The past three-and-a-half months that WWPM MediaNet has been on the air may seem easy, but it isn’t.
Try spending at most 18 hours a day trying to get advertisers, programming, sponsors, show promos, system upgrades and more done – sometimes not sleeping at all. (I have had, on occasion, where I have fallen asleep at my desk.) If you don’t appreciate hard work to keep a quality independent Internet radio station running, I really don’t know what to think of you.
Sometimes the work pays off, sometimes it doesn’t. That is the main reason why we accept donations – not only to show a sign of appreciation for what we do, but also to keep us running. Bills come and go when it comes to running this station, from our broadcasting software to the day-to-day station operations. Everything costs money and we appreciate a helping hand from time to time.
We have several ways for you to make your donations online:
- Look at the right hand side of the blog – we have a PayPal button and a link to our fundraiser on the Facebook app iFundRazr.
- On our Facebook Page, we also have a PayPal button in the “My Info” tab and an iFundRazr tab as well.
- On our Official Website (alternate site), we have PayPal buttons for our $10 Members Club and also to donate any amount. They’re located in the bottom left hand corner of the website.
Some people don’t care to donate, so there are other ways you can help:
- If you go to our website, on the right hand side of our homepage, there are fifteen businesses who partner with us to give the station a commission from every sale if you click any of the logos on the page. It’s a win-win-win situation.
- We also have a merchandise store to sell station-related merchandise. CafePress gives the station a portion of the sales. Win-win situation.
Now for those who haven’t noticed, we are temporarily off the air after our temporary license paid for from our first payment for the broadcast software SAM Broadcaster. We’re currently raising funds to make this second payment of $59.00. (We receive a full license after the fifth and final payment.) We could really use your help to keep us running.
We have such a great variety of programs from sports to politics, from shock jock comedy to legal analysis. We’re not mainstream, nor do we want to become mainstream. We just want to be a successful operation with a lot of listeners. But we cannot return on the air without your help. Our greatest fear is downgrading back to the boring world of BlogTalkRadio and none of us want that. So any kind of support is appreciated!
