Jimmy's Charhouse-Elk Grove Village
Very happy about our relationship with WRMN 1410 and Dave Niven. Impressed with the amount of interaction on the air about our restaurant and also in our store. We've had many customers mention the station and how they heard about us on there. And we always ask everyone to mention the station so we can get to know their family of listeners. A partnership with WRMN 1410 is a great way to get exposure with a wide range of motivated customers.
Thank you WRMN and Dave Niven,
Jimmys Charhouse Elk Grove
We are a small independent chocolate cafe in Algonquin. We have been working with Dave N. at the Radio Shopping Show and have found this form of advertising to be VERY beneficial for us. We have tried mailings, e-commerce and other certificate programs. We feel this program produces repeat customers and increased sales with each certificate.
Vapor Haus-East Dundee, Des Plaines
Thanks for posting the "Great American Smokeout" information.
To date I have provided more that 100 people with an alternative to cigarettes and the WRMN family can take pride in their part to save lives.

I want to write a quick letter to express my thanks to you, Dave and the Radio Shopping Show. I have been working with the radio station for several years now and have been very satisfied with all of the advertising that you have provided all of my locations. The new customer's that you have helped bring in has been a big boost to our business. We are continually seeing new faces and many people come back without certificates. The Road Shows that you do here are also a great way to bring people into the restaurant. The hardest part of owning a restaurant is getting people to try in the first time, you help out with getting them in the door and then it's up to us to make sure they come back. You have done so much to promote our restaurant with commercials, magazine and the website that it's amazing that I've never paid you a dime for any of it. Working with you and the radio station is by far the easiest type of promotional work I've ever done. I know that you will make sure that everything is taken care of, and I don't have to continually follow up with it. I look forward to a long relationship with you, WRMN and The Radio Shopping Show.
Big Sammy's-Elk Grove Village, Elgin
The Radio Shopping Show has been a big success for our business. It has helped our business grow and bring in new customers.
Also thank you to WRMN 1410 News for their constant support of Big Sammy's. It's been a pleasure working with you all, and I look forward to continuing our relationship. It is easy to see why they call you "Super" Dave.
I have been working with Dave Niven of the Radio Shopping Show with WRMN/1410, Elgin Broadcasting Company, Inc. for about two years. I have found that this experience has not only been of true professionalism, but great results.
In the past two years, I have seen many new faces here in my restaurant as well as increases in our sales. I have been experiencing double digit growth for the past two years, of this I feel we could attribute at least 1/3rd of this increase to the radio certificates and the advertising it has generated. We have had minimal problems with the redemption of these certificates as the radio station puts the purchasers name of these certificates. The one person abusing the certificates has since been dealt with by the radio station. This has truly helped us with the effectiveness of these certificates. The average percentage of adjustment to sales has been no more than that of a Buy One, Get One coupon that is better than we expected.
We have also had a "Road Show" help here at least once each quarter since our signing on and I must say, these shows have been good sales generators as well as good visibility for our restaurant. These shows have been handled very professionally by the WRMN staff and we look forward to doing the shows here.
Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center
Attached is the report showing how we had 249 visits from the WRMN website between Oct. and Dec. 2012.
In addition, this put WRMN in the top 10 referring sites to our website!
WRMN is in good company, too with the DNR, Google, Enjoy Illinois's website, TheKnot.com, Facebook, and Starved Rock State Park.
I have traded overnight stays at our Lodge for ADS before but never saw such GREAT results.
It seems this campaign was a WIN WIN for both of us, right?
Auto Authority-Crystal Lake
I first want to say thank you. Your shopping show has increased my new customer traffic drastically. I have nearly one new customer per day thanks to your show. I would like to offer some additional services but have not determined what they are just yet.
Lynfred Winery-Roselle, Wheeling, Naperville, Wheaton
Greetings from Lynfred Winery! I am writing in regards to our recent promotion with the Radio Shopping Show at your station. Lately we have been receiving quite a few of the Tour & Tasting certificates that we use for the show. Those certificates are vital to us as they bring in at least 10 new people to the winery per certificate. It is then that we are able to show them that Lynfred Winery truly is a hidden gem.
Recently you were kind enough to allow me an interview on your program and I cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate that! While I was still on the line we were receiving phone calls and even booked a bed and breakfast stay from that interview (a $500 value to us). Once again, I just want to thank you, Dave for the hard work the Shopping Show has done for us and for the fabulous results.
Have a grape day!
Your Best Friend's Closet-Algonquin
Just a brief note to tell you how thrilled I am to have my company, Your Best Friend's Closet, be a part of the Radio Shopping Show. The exposure to our store because of the RSS has been wonderful.
What a great way for people to try new and different businesses without spending a fortune on something they're not sure of. The Radio Shopping Show allows people to try out new places and brings us new customers weekly. I want that savvy shopper to come back and am glad when they use their Radio Shopping Show certificate.
Thanks Dave and the Radio Shopping Show for such a fabulous service, not only to the "key tag holders" but to the business' as well.
I want to thank you and your company for the professional marketing opportunity for our new restaurant business, Pazzini's, in the Algonquin Commons shopping center. The promotion that was arranged through Dave N and your company has been a very powerful tool to get the word out into the community of what Pazzini's is all about. The business model of the Elgin Broadcasting Company was very new to me and quite honestly was not sure how it would work. But I'm very pleased indeed of how it has turned out and will continue to promote Pazzini's through the Elgin Broadcasting Company.
Just Hot Dogs-Carpentersville
Just Hot Dogs & More has been at the location for over 5 years, but now we've transitioned to a larger menu, and with the help of WRMN, it has created more awareness! WRMN's listeners have learned about Just Hot Dogs & More for the first time, and have become long time guests! WRMN has been great to us and they're very responsive to all our needs. I recommend considering how they can help your business.
