Win $25 – Suggest An ASI Radio Show Topic

Filed under: asi radio show

ASI RadioOne of the cool things about being a radio engineer and the “social network dude” for the weekly ASI Radio Show is that I’ve gotten to know some of our listeners pretty well. And when one of our shows covers a particularly helpful topic, these same listeners are not shy in pointing this out. In fact, when we cover a hot topic the phone lines and social networks just light up with tons of great questions and comments, a testament to how well our listeners have their fingers on the pulse of the industry.

For instance, our June 14 show titled Should You Bring Your Suppliers on Sales Calls? was so interactive it simply turned into a forum for users and listeners to engage with our show hosts. It was brilliant!

So, for our next radio show — August 9 — we are opening up show topic suggestions to you, our listeners, and offering a $25 Visa Gift Card to the suggestion we use! If you’ve got a great idea for a show topic, post a comment below to the blog, on ASICentral Facebook, in Twitter or email us at feedback@asicentral.com.

So stay tuned, and good luck!

ASI Radio Show Halloween Costume Contest…and More!

Filed under: General

Going to an early Halloween party this weekend? Here’s what you need to do: Before you drink too much witches’ brew and end up getting annoyed by your fake beard/dreadlocks/nose ring/go-go dancer boots and rip it/them off and throw it/them on the floor where they’ll be trampled by a fun-loving Frankenstein or a Palin impersonator, have someone take lots of pictures of you in your costume.

After that’s done, just tune in to the ASI Radio Show this Tuesday at 10:30am to find out how your costume can win you $200! And as if that wasn’t enough, this Tuesday you’ll also find out if you’re the lucky winner of ASI’s “Mortgage for a Month” contest – and the 2K that goes with it. But no matter what, you’ll be a winner once you hear the expert advice and witty banter of the ASI editors at their best. (OK, it’s possible that senior editor Michele Bell might not be at her absolute best, but that’s only because the Radio Show airs so incredibly early in the morning and Michele’s a night owl, and you can’t blame a girl for her natural circadian rhythm!)

ASI Radio Show: One Contest, One Special Guest, Tons of Advice

Filed under: General

Did you catch this morning’s ASI Radio Show? If not, boy did you miss out! In addition to the witty banter of the ASI editors, today’s show featured a very special guest: Matthew Cohn, Vice Chairman of ASI. Matthew talked about ways that distributors can grow their business by working with non-profits, and gave tips on trade show presentations.

Another thing you missed was the chance to win a free gas card – ASI is giving away 50 of them! Just be one of the first 50 ASI members to enter the secret word from today’s show (hint: it’s Kathy’s cat’s name) into the form, and voila: free gas for you.

But before you kick yourself too hard, relax – you can listen to the archived show online right now and enter the contest. But you’d better hurry, cause those gas cards are gonna go fast!


PS: We want to give a shout out to our team’s own Steve and Frank for their “behind the scenes” work on the radio show each week. When you laugh at a “meow,” a foghorn, or other sound effect, it’s like music to their ears (or at least it would be, if they could actually hear you laughing).
