One-minute Martinizing: 

Create Contrast

The most effective approach to developing audience and growing share is to focus on getting different. The objective is to create contrast, to differentiate your show or station from others.

This starts with listening for what’s not there. Become aware of what’s happening on the listener side of the radio. Develop an acuity of situational awareness. Pay attention, notice what’s happening and what’s not happening.

Example: when the competition uses a male imaging voice consider a female voice or a male and a female, a couples voice. The difference should not be subtle. The audience should be able to perceive the difference you create.

Beware: it’s a mistake investing time and resources in just getting better. Typically, the getting better approach results in holding the position you’re in or some incremental growth. Pulling away from the pack requires you to do just that. Simply being a better version of something which is already out there rarely produces sustainable success.
