about rfc media

Invasive Communications Strategy – On-ramp into the Social Dialog

RFC is a creative content company built around a team of high-functioning, radio overachievers. We design specialty streaming radio stations for clients seeking to grow beyond tweets, posts and blogs. First we match the music to the brand, then we add the magic of the microphone. RFC Media has redefined and revolutionized streaming digital radio by activating a fresh delivery system that naturally extends the total time a brand spends with its customers. It’s Brand Built Media, not the other way around. That’s why it’s not Pandora.

how it works

  • It’s invasive
  • You’re now in the audio game bringing a fresh approach to sustain and deepen relationships with core fans
  • Your streaming station pins to your existing digital strategy and completes the experience for the customer, especially when it is LIVE ON SITE
  • Most SILENT BRANDS don’t want to be so silent.

why it works

  • We listen
  • We create content worth sharing
  • We’re not afraid
