Radio Station Contests and Promotions that Rock

If your radio station contests and promotions aren’t exciting, they flop. On-air radio station promotions must be so auditorily dramatic that describing the event gives the listener the feeling of actually being there in the midst of the action.

We have been in the business of creating extreme promotions for more than 10 years. To help you develop radio station promotions and contests that engage your listeners, we’ve created a selection of products to jumpstart and enhance your radio station contest ideas.
The Blizzard of Dollars Cash Cube Money Machine

Without a doubt, the most popular and the most exciting of our radio station contest promotional products is the Blizzard of Dollars Cash Cube Money Machine. This cash blowing machine has all of the elements of the perfect radio station promotion – it’s hilarious to watch, rich with sound, and draws out unexpected reactions in the radio station contest participant.

How would you react if you were suddenly placed into a clear cube and told that you could keep all of the money inside if only you could catch it as it swirled around your body and slipped in and out of your grasp? You may think you know how you and your radio station contest winners will react, but once that money begins to swirl, adrenaline takes over and the results are raw, unexpected, and 100% hilarious!

Who wouldn’t want to step into a phone-booth sized box of cash and told they could keep everything they could stuff into their special cash collecting apron? When you’ve got to narrow down the radio station contestants to chose the lucky individuals who will step into the cash machine, the wheel of fortune (shown at left) or one of our many other prize wheels are an exciting way to make a selection.

The money blowing Cash Cube Money Machine is ideal for outdoor street contests and promotions and for in station contests. The sight of a person desperately grabbing for hordes of cash inside of a clear plastic cube is an absolute traffic stopper when you’re radio station promotions are held out in the community. Keeping a cash blowing machine in the station for the entertainment of celebrity guests or contest winners always makes for a completely unique and exciting experience.

Even when listeners can’t actually see the mayhem, the reaction of the participant is often so hilarious that it is just as entertaining to hear a play by play description by the DJ as the sound of the money blowing machine whirrs in the background.

Radio Now 93.1 out of Indianapolis Indiana liked the idea of the money blowing machine so much, that they created a humorous online money blowing machine game where listeners can pick their favorite radio host and watch them flail around inside the money machine and grab for cash.

How could you use the Blizzard of Dollars Cash Cube Money Machine in your radio station contests and promotions? These money blowing machines are available to buy or to rent in a wide variety of styles and options.

“Unlock the Prize Safe” Radio Station Promotion

For a really exciting on-air event, create a game where contestants can win envelopes with combinations inside. As passers by to answer trivia questions or invite listeners down to your event to compete in a crazy competition like a men’s high heel race or pie eating contest.

Only one of the envelopes will include the winning combination. Tensions and excitement mount when contestants punch in the code to see if the lock will open. One person has the winning combination… but who is it? These are the type of radio station promotions that will have listeners happy to be sitting in traffic so that they can hear the exciting event play out!

You can also organize a huge contest and offer a great grand prize by allowing contestants to choose the prize safe combination randomly. There are hundreds of thousands of possible combinations.

Create you own radio station street team of crowd stopping robots that can pass out fliers, greet people, and even be programmed with a pre-loaded script.

With an overuse of traditional street team marketing techniques, the public has learned to ignore people handing out fliers and vying for attention in public spaces. But when Rupert the Robot (shown at left) and his robot buddies are out on the town, people stop and stare!

Rupert is controlled by a remote control that is disguised as a coffee cup. Have one of your fun-loving radio station staff controlling Rupert as he hands out fliers, stickers, ad specialties, and shakes hands with people out in public.

Gizmo can be preprogrammed with a 40 minute scripted show designed to spread your message and interact with those in the crowd. This huge oversized robot can also be customized with your radio station’s logo or promotional message for a lasting impression that people won’t soon forget!

Why not make that message board a 6'6" life sized animatronic gorilla robot? Our big guys have moving torso and arm, sure to catch the eye of anyone who attends your events. The gorilla robot is also available in colors: choose from original natural, pink, blue, green, or purple.

A 21" x 36" sign and 4" lettering come with the gorilla. He's made of durable, weatherproof fun fur and plastic over a steel core. He stands on a sturdy base covered with outdoor carpet. In addition, the base has space to add weight if he's going to stand up to high winds. Outdoors or in, message board or standing alone, this gorilla robot is sure to turn heads at your radio event or office!

The key to all promotion ideas is to get noticed. Once customers are aware of your event, the traffic comes in.

A building sometimes blends into the urban landscape. You need radio station promotion products that can’t be overlooked. It’s pretty hard to overlook a giant marketing balloon or custom promotional inflatable that stands twenty feet tall!

We have a wide selection of tried-and-true promotional inflatable favorites such as a giant hot-air balloon, inflatable apes, or air dancers. Any of these can be imprinted with your station's logo for a very low cost.
