There are many things one can do to increase your stations visibility. My own stations are pretty narrow in their focus but the potential audience is large enough to have a big impact.

1. Website - First thing I did was to create a website for my station. It doesn't have to be a top notch professional one, but it needs to look pleasing and convey what you are providing with your station. I recommend using an easy website service like Wix.com or Weebly.com. Both have a free option but consider the small investment in their premium offerings so you can have your own website domain. This will make your website and station more professional. These website creators also help get your site in search engines due to their ease of setting options for SEO.

2. Social Media - Find out what your potential listeners use. Don't just assume they use the big players, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Some still use them but you need to make your station visible to the ones your audience uses.

3. Directory Listings - You can list your station in a multitude of listings. However, there some that I feel are important :
Tunein.com - Don't wait for your station to be submitted by Radionomy. Tunein is an absolute.
Nobex.com - Listing your station here will automatically allow you to submit your station in their Partners programs to have mobile apps for your station for free.
They support Android, Apple iOS, Blackberry and Windows Phone for Icecast streams (this is what Radionomy uses for our stations).
Yes Radionomy will submit your station to Nobex once you reach the 130 hours/day, but you need to get the 130 hour mark. Take control yourself.
Radio Tuna - Apple users have used Radio Tuna for years.
radio.net - Rebranded from rad.io just recently. They have redesigned everything about them. Their mobile app brings in a decent amount of listeners.
Streema - Also just did a redesign and is far improved. Mobile app is new and draws listeners.
Windows Media - Old and rarely updated. Submission rules are a pain. Still you will get listeners from here.

4. Go to a site such as Fiverr.com and get some Jingles/promos/bumpers/DJ drops made for your station. It is amazing how much this helps your station.

5. Old fashioned word-of-mouth. Tell your friends and have them tell their friends, and so on, and so on, and so on.

6. Do a live show on your station and promote, promote, promote. Yes I know that Live broadcasting on Radionomy has been suspect lately.
But promoting your new mobile apps to your listeners works wonders to get them to listen.

7. Content! Content! Content! Make sure your station's content is unique and ever changing. You need to have a reason for people to want to listen to your station.
If they can get it from Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, or some other common place they will have no reason to listen to your station.
Also, stale content does not keep listeners. You need to change things up to keep them coming back.

There are other things you can do, but these five things have been the most successful method to get a new stream off the ground for me. I am sure others here have some great suggestions for promoting a new station. Good luck!



Thank you very much! This is just what i need to know for improving my new radiostation.

A very helpful post, thank you! There are two steps to being on TuneIn - asking TuneIn to list your station, and then getting Radionomy to add the TuneIn API to one's station in a timely manner so the correct song data will populate in the TuneIn player. Some broadcasters complain of waiting MONTHS before finally seeing this last step completed!

Months...really? I don't think so.

It is usuallly fast if you follow these instructions : viewtopic.php?f=25&t=14562&p=68086#p68086

However, although the credentials from TuneIn are set in our DB, the metadata are sometimes displayed on TuneIn desktop and not on TuneIn mobile or the opposite but there is nothing we can do, if it happens you should ask TuneIn.

Thanks for this comment Domi. It would be helpful to broadcasters if there were an email letting us know when the Radionomy part of the task was done, so then we can follow-up with TuneIn. Right now, when the request is sent into the Radionomy cloud there's know way to know if and when to expect changes will start showing up. TuneIn blames Radionomy, and Radionomy blames TuneIn and it goes around and around. Meanwhile credibility with listeners suffers. Follow-up is everything!

I can personally recommend https://www.fiverr.com. I've been using some of their radio imaging artists to create great, short ID's for my stations.

One of the standouts is James Beckingham:

I strongly recommend using sweepers & DJ drops because it can not only help identify your style of station but makes it sound very professional.
