Patriot Day (Sept. 11th Remembrance)


  • On Patriot Day we pause to remember the fallen and to honor the heroes of September 11, 2001, and to recognize the first responders in our own communities and across America.

    Consider inviting select local businesses to partner with you by sponsoring messages of remembrance, encouragement, and support, and to honor the first responders in your community: police, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel who serve selflessly in times of crisis.

    Rebecca Hunt: “We sold just one sponsorship on the Patriot Day (September 11th Remembrance) package, a non-traditional advertiser, local manufacturing company that makes engines for lawn mowers.  But it was a $1200 package!  We ran the features the week before September 11, all of them tagged with the manufacturer’s name and the fact that they have been a part of the community for over 20 years.  It worked out well, and the company was very pleased.” – Mike Hubbard, Auburn Network, Inc., Auburn, AL

    Rebecca Hunt: We did very well with the Patriot Day (September 11th Remembrance) series, selling sponsorships to 7 or 8 different businesses for a total of $2000.
    While the extra revenue was nice, of even greater benefit to us was that this campaign enabled us to get a couple of national sponsors on the air:  McDonald’s and Miller Beer.   Miller had advertised with us from time to time, but we had never been able to sell a schedule to McDonald’s (and we had been calling on them for quite a while).  When we played the 9/11 demo for the rep, he said he’d give us a call back – and he did, right away, with a “yes”!   Now that the door has been opened, we look forward to McDonald’s doing more advertising with us in the future.
    Grace Broadcast Sales’ campaigns are definitely an asset to us.  When you consider the difference between what we paid for the series and the profit we made with it, using these features is really a decision that makes itself – how could you not do it?
