It’s a whole new digital world: Click-and-follow service crosses over to radio 

AlertMe Joins with Envision Networks® to deliver audience engagement offering 

(May 2019) – Envision Networks® will offer the AlertMe online notification platform to radio affiliates. Already popular with newspapers and television, AlertMe is a click-and-follow solution for keeping listeners engaged with the news, information and entertainment stories you provide to them. 

Radio veterans and AlertMe co-founders, Walter Burr and Adam Shapiro, developed the platform to expand the digital reach of affiliates with a unique audience engagement proposition. When you share a news item over the air and send listeners to your web site, a click of the AlertMe button notifies and sends the listener via text or email any follow-up news or information you share on the same topic. 

“AlertMe is thrilled to partner with Envision Networks® to help stations frequently drive listeners from the studio to the station’s web site,” says Adam Shapiro. “A radio station no longer just competes with others on the dial, but with all the media clutter out there that distracts the audience from coming back every day. This simple button helps change that overnight.” 

AlertMe works with some of the biggest media companies in the world.

The platform already drives increased reader engagement and revenue for Hearst, Tribune, Waterman Broadcasting and others. This organic service helps reduce dependency on social media for site traffic while improving the user experience and increasing reader loyalty.
