Building on seven years of international success, Expatsradio.com – the on-demand, internet-based radio station specifically aimed at those living overseas or those who would like to – has launched its hugely expanded service. More than twelve months under development and utilising cutting edge technology, the all-new Expatsradio.com can be viewed and listened to worldwide in stereo on virtually any computer or mobile device.
Rigorous high-tech research and development by digital consultants Creative-Borders.com has ensured that the end product not only answers the specific demands of its worldwide audience, but is also simple to use, regardless of computer competence or of location.
The aim of Expatsradio is to be the first choice and one-stop resource for all expatriates and frequent travellers, for both information and entertainment. It offers its audience an unparalleled selection of audio and text content on a wide variety of relevant subjects, provided by a handpicked team of top presenters and writers. These same presenters are based from Holland to Spain, Switzerland to the USA and across the globe, streaming their programmes from their own studios.
Peter Richards, programme director of Expatsradio.com, says: “Our aim is simple… to create the web-based media resource to provide English-speaking expats, and those considering a move abroad, with quality information on all the important issues – useful and practical information, but presented in a way that will be popular and truly entertaining.
“In fact, ‘entertainment’ is the key word at Expatsradio.com. There are several sites available which merely give out practical information in text format. Using the much more entertaining audio/visual medium, Expatsradio.com now provides everything from morning stories to music programmes, bringing in experts and established household names to present such items as legal and financial matters, property purchase, gardening, and travel, through to cookery, current affairs and horoscopes.
“Our listeners are even encouraged to make their own programmes for us to use. The reality is that they are the ones who know what is happening in their locality, what positive changes are taking place and they can easily give advice to others who are thinking of following suit and moving abroad. In essence, Expatsradio.com is not just another website, but a powerful, and constantly updated free resource available world-wide via computer and most mobile devices. By its very nature, it is relied upon by expats everywhere for its high-quality impartial content, offered by the Expatsradio team at the click of a button.”
Expatsradio also claims to offer a unique and affordable package of sponsorship and advertising opportunities for businesses and organisations trying to reach the ever-expanding expatriate market.
“We have built in numerous ways for a sponsor or advertiser to get involved with Expatsradio.com,” continues Peter Richards. “From a simple advertising presence on a particular web page or audio programme, to a state-of-the-art syndication system which allows sponsors to host their own programmes on both their own website and on Expatsradio.com. It sounds complicated, but the way it has been developed enables anyone to get involved and reap the maximum, cost-effective benefits.”
