BRX Pro Tip: Are People Really Listening Transcript
Stone Payton: [00:00:01] And we are back with Business RadioX Pro Tips. Lee Kantor and Stone Payton here with you. Lee, I get this question occasionally. I know you get it some too. Do people really listen? And we have all kinds of things that we can share with them to suggest that yes, they do. But you have a story that you like to relate.
Lee Kantor: [00:00:21] Yeah. My favorite story when people ask if people listen is the one that we heard when we were at the Chamber of Commerce with Mike Sammond a few years back. He had, unbeknownst to anybody, an avid listener to the Gwinnett Business Radio program, and this was a banker from Columbia South America. And he would listen on his way from home to the bank because he had dreams of coming to America at some point and expanding his business into America. So, he was listening to Gwinnett Business Radio, found it on the internet. And eventually, he hired someone, from listening, a consultant that helped him with an international business plan.
Lee Kantor: [00:01:07] And then, from there, moved his business to Gwinnett County, and he stood up at this Chamber of Commerce meeting. And it was, I know, one of our proudest moments because we both had our wives there, and he said that everybody he knows, he knows through listening to Business RadioX and the Gwinnett Business Radio show. And it was a multimillion dollar business or, at least, a million dollar business at the time. And he stood up at the Gwinnett Chamber talking about how important Business RadioX was to his business and his career.
Stone Payton: [00:01:39] Well it’s just a sober reminder of how far our efforts really do reach and the level of impact you can have all over the country, all over the world, and like so much are around here. It just really feels good knowing that.
Lee Kantor: [00:01:56] Right. And you know that people in other countries are hungry for kind of what’s happening in America, and our platform allows them to hear right from the horse’s mouth the good, the bad, the ugly about business in America.
