Hot 104.7 – Southern Maine’s Hit Music Channel
March 31st, 2017 by BESWOON
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to 104.7 – Southern Maine’s Hit Music Channel for sponsoring BESWOON 2017! An extra THANKS to Victoria from 104.7 for sitting down with us to answer a few questions.
How many Maine listeners do you have?
The numbers always fluctuate but judging from the reaction to our product, our massive social foot print, the turn out at our events and more we feel we’ve become a staple for listeners in York & Cumberland counties. (240,000 Facebook, 13,000 Instagram, 8,000 Twitter, 2,000 ave. Snapchat, 18,000 website visits)
How did 104.7 start and become so successful?
We filled a void in the market place. We were aggressive musically and socially and offered a unique product and unique music for southern Maine. Most of all we are #MaineMade. We are locally owned, locally operated, and a big part of the local community.
You do giveaways and feature local Maine business. Do you feel this has connected you more with Mainers?
Yes, absolutely! We have such a unique and strong relationship with our listeners because of how connected we are with them on a daily basis. Whether it’s live on-air, call/text line, social media, or out in the real world, our listeners are a part of it all. Just as we have become a part of their “all”. Also, We are a Maine business. We’re incorporated in the State, pay taxes in the state and so on which is unique compared to our competitors in the market place who are all based out of state. We think Maine small businesses can connect with that and anything we can do in turn to support them, we’re all ears!
What do you think sets you a part from the other music stations?
In our eyes, there are two main differences. The first is that we’re truly live and local. All of our programming originates in Scarborough from people that actually live in Southern Maine. That’s not the case with our competitors. Secondly, We offer a ton of unique music from active and popular artists that are not available on other stations.
Why are you a sponsor of BESWOON 2017?
I think this event is absolutely wonderful! Years back I helped my sister plan her wedding and it was an exciting but stressful process. We all want that “perfect” wedding day and often times in can be hard to make your vision of what you want become the reality. Better yet, it’s hard to even decided what you want to do in the first place. So an event like this is an ingenious way to get a taste of all the possibilities and help one create that perfect day, turning their vision into reality!
