Internet broadcasting is not limited to the local area and is not affected by a listener’s location. Most radio station signals do not penetrate office walls and severely limit the ability to listen to radio stations at work. Over 90% of today's business workforce has a pc on their desk. Conversely only 32% of offices have radios.
Listening to and viewing streaming content over the internet has reached an all-time high and continues to grow. Having the ability to deliver a quality stream to the end users is only half of the equation. We can provide our clients with a suite of advertising tools that cannot be matched by any streaming provider in the industry.
Our tools are broadcaster friendly and designed exclusively to meet the needs of media companies. This gives our clients the ability to generate new media friendly revenue sources for their stations. When you stream with MainstreamNetwork, you keep 100% of the revenues you generate from the online sales of your stream.
Internet Broadcasting has become an additional source of revenue that many of our clients can no longer ignore. Through the use of the wide array of tools that we make available to your station, you will be able to expand on the options available to your advertisers. Millions of advertising dollars are being generated by our clients every year through our Network.
Internet Broadcasting is a logical extension of your company's communications and promotions. Streaming gives your listeners an interactive solution to providing your programming, brand, and advertisers into your listener’s home and office. We give you the ability to deliver your brand to your listeners with a branded player and other features.
Measurable Streaming over the internet can provide detailed demographic data about your listening audience. Through our broadcaster streaming statistics and advertising reporting, you will know exactly how many people are listening to your broadcast and for how long.
To ensure that our customers are provided with the highest level of service, we have multiple data centers that are fully staffed by our dedicated employees.
