NFL field subway tuna sub Rich Sadler half time Exhibition game

NFL Exhibition Game Punt, Pass and Kick Competition

Wrapped a huge joint venture promotion with various local and regional businesses in support of inner-city children.

The promotions surrounded a Punt, Pass & Kick competition that Rich arranged to be held as half-time festivities during NFL exhibition games.

Not only did this become hugely profitable for his radio station (and other mediums like newspaper, TV, local mags, etc that he enjoined later to expand the exposure) but it became one of the most popular and anticipated promotions in the city.

Side-note: Loads of awesome stories about those cool kids to tell here… make you shed a tear or two…
western union Rich Sadler Coop Manager

Wired with Western Union!

Massive Co-Op Advertising campaign (became annual) with nearly every single Western Union location in the designated ADI - “Audience Of Dominant Influence” (only one dissented – a shady bail bondman whom Rich didn’t want anyway), whereby Western Union corporate paid 75% of the cost of the ad campaigns and provided TONS of giveaways.

In fact those bulk Western Union promotional items were still around the radio stations years after Rich moved on…

Enormous profits for the station and tons of goodwill with new clients that normally would not be able to participate in the broadcast medium.
Cargill Corp Rich Sadler radio campaigns

Pro-Energy Dog Food

The multi-billion dollar Cargill Corporation was going into the pet food business with, as it turned out, a very superior product. Rich discovered the dog food was so good that it absorbed into the pooch’s system better than the average dog food – i.e. better assimilation.

So, he contacted Cargill; devised and executed a huge promotion resulting in a very unique ad and marketing angle. Took a knock off of the old Wendy’s hamburger commercial “where’s the beef?” and went with “where’s the stool?”

Rich had the majority of on-air radio talent touting “where’s the stool” and gave away dog food samples at every future event and remote broadcast for a year. This turned out to be the #1 largest impact campaign at Cargill Corporation for that year!
NewspaperBoy_extra Rich Sadler International

Extra-Extra Read All About it!

Orchestrated and executed the concept for promoting the change in a radio station’s core on-air format and huge rise in the Arbitron ratings battle by developing, writing, printing and distributing a turn-of-the-century style newspaper.

Rich then hired a small army of small children (ages 3 ½ to 11 – child-labor laws be damned - wink!) to dress in 1899 newspaper-boy knickers-type costumes complete with shoulder bags and applejack caps. Hired drivers to convoy our little “Newsies” for a one day blitz to all the region’s advertising agencies and most major clients in the city shouting out: “Extra, Extra read all about it, radio station has meteoric rise to the top of the ratings!”

This one was so big they even got coverage in competing mediums! Needless to say everyone in business and in advertising in the State of Florida (and elsewhere) knew of the station’s format adjustments and massive achievements in the ratings! Competitors followed suit soon after!
beer ball coors lite rich sadler

Endless Free Beer = Balls

Due to his extensive background in the beverage industry Rich was able to nurture the local Coors (and several other brands – many imports) distributor (and their advertising agency out of Chicago) to run huge on-air schedules and participate in a massive amount of promotions including providing Beer Balls (portable 5 gallon ‘kegs’) nearly every time he requested.

In yet another creative concept Rich, along with his good friend Roger Maris Jr. (yes, that Roger Maris – the legendary baseball player=his father=owned the central Florida Budweiser distributorship in Gainesville) developed and had built a refrigerated truck filled with stationary kegs with taps sticking out of the sides. Simply pull up to a would-be party and Wham! – Instant merrymaking … heaps of revenue and oodles or goodwill.

Free Thanksgiving Promotion

Rich initiated this years ago and to our knowledge it still continues to this day: in conjunction with the largest grocery store chain in Florida and one of the nation's most successful furniture stores, we gave away Free Thanksgiving – literally! Full Dinner including huge turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, bread, cold drinks, all the fixin’s, decorations and of course a high caliber dinning room set up including long dining table (sitting for 12), high-back chairs and a huge high-end china cabinet. Resulted in long term arrangements for each client involved year after year...
Mr Goodwrcnh rich sadler promotions

Baseball Night Promotion

Rich arranged to buy every ticket in the stadium of the Jacksonville Sun’s baseball park. Then gave all the tickets away free to radio listeners and made ton of money for his radio station! How, you ask? He got all the General Motors dealers in the city to participate in a huge broadcast campaign where he mentioned two non-competing (geographically) dealers in each 60 second spot. In the ads they invited the listeners to stop by the automobile dealership’s service department and pick up their free tickets. No purchase was necessary but everyone was of course encouraged to get their car service by Mr. Goodwrench while there.

•Also tied in various other local businesses to give away dozens & dozens of prizes during the game and of course run their own adjoining radio advertising campaigns. For instance; got a cellular phone company to give away 24 phones in an unique trivia game between innings, local hardware store gave away baseball bats upon entering the stadium, local hamburger joint gave away free burger & fries certificates in a surprise under-the-seat promotion, free bikes in a pitching game, etc, etc, etc.

Later Rich brought in former Kansas City Royals baseball team executive turned Conservative talk show host and political pundit Rush Limbaugh to do some voice and sponsorship work. Revenue and community goodwill galore!

Stanza Extravaganza

Rich was contacted by one of his major advertising agency clients to come up with a regional campaign and promotion for Nissan’s newest car line the ‘Stanza.’

So he created a multi-media “Stanza Extravaganza” campaign blitz complete with tons of back-to-back promotions from the dealerships with prizes and giveaways galore.

This one went national very quickly - you may remember the balloons-drop, party atmosphere TV ads, right? They played for years and the concept (which Nissan failed to trademark) was used for several other cars as well, namely Toyota.
subway tuna sub Rich Sadler International

Subway – ‘Terry & Tuna’ Sub

Pursuaded the entire North Florida Subway franchise group to change the name of their Tuna Sub Sandwich to the “Terry & Tuna Sub” - named after Rich’ radio station’s morning-drive DJ crew. He also had them run a 26-week radio, TV and newspaper Subway campaign promoting the new sandwich. Since the daily newspaper in Jacksonville; The Florida Times Union was also one of Rich’s’ clients, he was instrumental in generating even more business on both ends!
Florida Gators Jacksonville Jaguars Rich Sadler

NFL & National Champs FL Gators Flagship Station Status

Rich was one of the key members of the team that attained appointment for the flagship radio station for the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise.

Rich went on to act as one of the key contacts with the Jaguars coaches, players and operational staff for various promotions and talent bookings. Also in working closely (and station liaison) with the Jacksonville Mayor’s office and the Tourism & Development Department and Board.

Rich and a hand-picked team were able to secure the position as the flagship radio station for the University of Florida Gators.

That’s right, they actually snatched that designation out of the hands of the University of Florida’s own station and Rich’s station was 50 miles away from the Gator’s stadium ‘The Swamp’! Talk about a feather in the cap – big-time!
