Open for Business? Free Radio Time for Sandy-ravaged Businesses
American Express and Clear Channel are supporting small businesses impacted by super storm Sandy by offering free radio time in order to announce to their communities that they are open for business.
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) says, “From now until March 31, 2013, small businesses can visit any of the links for the radio stations (see below) and follow the directions provided to complete the submission form and include the details of an eligible small business in a hurricane-affected area that is open for business. Clear Channel will then review the submissions and, in select cases, provide free radio time to help get the word out to the small businesses community that they are open for business.”
This program is available only to small businesses in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut that have been adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy, earn $10 million or less in annual revenue, are not considered a franchisee, and do not sell any products or services in a retail establishment or via the Internet that are deemed to be illegal by federal, state and/or local laws.”
For further information, contact Steven Reinman, the deputy municipal manager and director of economic development for Lakewood Township, at 732-364-2500 Ext. 5333
