Fix Media Account Manager

Who are we?

The home of entertainment, music and information for UK Tradespeople.

Fix Radio has been broadcasting for over 4 years. The station has been built from the  ground up with a tradesperson in mind offering authentic content, up beat/non repetitive  music and a schedule built around a tradesperson's day.

Tradespeople make up over 2 million working professionals across the UK. They also  listen to the radio for over 7 hours a day.

Fix Radio is aspiring to become the ‘go to’  radio station for UK builders and by doing so will become THE prominent route to  market for advisers looking to market products and services to tradespeople.

By acting  as a specialist media route offering a pure audience of tradespeople, Fix Radio is able to demand a far higher CPT then other traditional channels making it very commercially  exciting!

What product are you selling?

Fix Radio is a fantastic product to sell. You’re selling a vocation. We’re the first radio  station world wide to offer that. You’re selling a pure audience of tradespeople to brands  that have products and services which they’re specifically trying to sell to that audience. It couldn’t be a better alignment!

If you consider other routes to market  (Radio/Print/Outdoor) they all have considerable wastage (80%+). Tradespeople are a notoriously hard audience to market to and you’re selling a product which provides  the perfect solution to that challenge.

Our talent includes some of the biggest names in the industry:

The Bald Builders: The most followed builders in the UK with well over 1 million followers on social media.

Chris Frediani: Star of DIY SOS

Thomas Nagy: The most followed electrician in the UK hosts our Electrical Show.

Future Vision?

We’re building a household name in the trade/construction sector. Our aspirations are that we could walk into any building site in the UK and the trade are aware of the Fix Radio brand and ideally tuning in.

We’ve taken this from an idea over a coffee on a  building site to where we are today and believe wholeheartedly we can finish off the  vision by creating a household name amongst UK Builders.
