Nobex has been selected as the exclusive mobile app provider for Airtime Pro, bringing this long awaited feature to all Airtime Pro station owners.

Which songs in your station’s playlists are getting cranked up?

We’ve written before about the benefits terrestrial radio stations get when they add streaming, mobile apps, and websites specifically optimized for radio stations. One of the biggest benefits to going digital is the metrics. When you’re streaming, it’s no longer about estimating market size or approximating listener engagement. You can optimize your playlists to maximize your listenership because you can actually see — in real time — what content resonates with your audience and how they respond to it.

Introducing Top Cranked Up Songs

To help stations grow their audiences, we’re continuing to roll-out more granular reporting alongside our eBex scores (Nobex Partners’ proprietary listener engagement metrics). We’re excited to introduce a new report. Top Cranked Up Songs is available in the Reports section for our Pro subscribers.

As you can probably guess by its name, Top Cranked Up Songs displays — in order — the songs in your playlist that got your listeners to turn up the volume on their mobile devices. The report also lists how many total cranks your songs received.

Here’s a sample report from a Nobex Partners client tracking its station’s top cranked up songs:

How a station can use Top Cranked Up Songs

If you’re a Pro subscriber, you’ll find your new Top Cranked Up Songs list in the Reports section of your control panel. Just click on Charts.

Stations are using this data to inform their content decisions, including more plays of songs that listeners dig and removing those songs that push listeners away. Our new Top Cranked Up Songs chart joins a handful of other listener engagement reports that top stations are using to refine and improve their programming, delighting their listeners.

In addition to Top Cranked UpPro subscribers can see what content in their playlists listeners are turning off, which songs are trending up/down in terms of listener engagement, and how specific content is trending over time.

So, get cranking.

Introducing Website Builder

We’re launching Website Builder, a new, easy-to-use tool to build and customize a website for your radio station.

Over the years, we’ve heard from many radio stations that while they were happy with the Nobex Partners platform to build and manage their radio apps, they were still missing a good solution to manage their websites. The audience for digital radio continues to grow and without a good interactive solution on the web, radio stations were missing out on the opportunity to provide a good experience for their online listeners.

Website Builder changes that whole dynamic. Now, a station can use Website Builder to build an interactive website using the same tools they use to manage their station’s native apps. This tight integration between a website and app saves a station time and money in managing its digital presence.

  • Build a website for your station: Perfect for replacing your station’s current website or starting from scratch, Nobex Partner’s Website Builder makes your station look awesome right from the start. Our all-in-one platform provides everything you need to present your best side to existing and new listeners.
  • No coding necessary: Over 5000 radio stations around the world trust Nobex Partners to build and manage their apps. Now, using the same point-and-click technology that runs our app platform, stations can quickly design and launch a website.
  • One interface to manage your apps and website: We built the Website Builder to be tightly integrated it into your station’s apps. That means you don’t have to manage them separately — use one interface to manage both your station and your website. It’s easy, really, and cuts down on the time it takes to manage your digital presence.
  • Customize the look and feel: Nobex Partner’s Website Builder enables you to customize the look and feel of a website for your station. You have lots of choices to include, like your weekly schedule, playlists, forms for live requests, on-demand content, and much more.

Website Builder is available as a stand-alone product or as an add-on for existing clients on one of the Nobex Partners paid plans.

Update: Net Promoter Score

As another year draws to a close, we like to have a look at how things are going, and where we can improve. A big part of that is keeping track of our Net Promoter Score (NPS). If you’re not familiar with NPS, you can learn more about the concept here.

We survey users who have reached 6 months, 1 year, and 3 year milestones as partners with us, asking a simple question: How likely are you to recommend Nobex Partners to a friend or colleague?

Spread the Word

Here’s how things are shaping up this year:

6 months – 71% of respondents would recommend, 14% would not. Overall score of 57
1 year – 100% of respondents would recommend. Overall score of 100
3 years – 96% of respondents would recommend, 4% were neutral. Overall score of 96
This increase over time shows us that we are able to win over detractors by helping to guide them through the process of going live and providing the tools to help make their app a success.
Don’t forget your can share ideas with us whenever you want! And join us for a webinar to learn more about how to use the features on your Dashboard.
