How Not to Produce a Sizzle Reel
Here’s an insight into the #content and #audio competition and landscape:
These companies are the biggest in this business!!!
And they sling SHIT.
Here’s the “sizzle reel” they just sent us affiliates of Clay Travis who is perhaps THE hottest thing ON SOCIAL when it comes to sports radio hosts. No one ON-AIR does it better on social in the sports realm.
He’s bigger ONLINE than he is ON-AIR….he’s got more people watching him LIVE on Twitter than CNN has watching live on Cable…in a given moment.
And yet, this is the drivel his syndication company (iHeartRadio, Premiere, Clear Channel) sends out to us…
This is pablum that doesn’t showcase Clay Travis’ strengths or edginess, AND worst of all this copy does not speak to the intended audience which is Program Directors, General Managers, Sales Managers, and Radio Executives.
Watch the “sizzle reel” here:
It’s not a maxipad commercial…but it feels like one at 1:44 with the stock video footage.
Oh and by the way…the sizzle reel is 2 years old but they sent it out TODAY like it’s FRESH.
