    Whether you are an individual representing yourself or an entire company, it is impossible to please everyone. Howard Stern knows this, and not only does he not try to please all possible radio listeners (or television viewers), he is unapologetic when his particular brand of comedy offends somebody. This is why so many people respect him and continue to loyally follow him throughout his media career. As a representative of a company, you know your target audience—focus on them and don’t worry about making other consumers feel left out. Your first priority is the group of people who are going to bring you a profit, and they deserve 100 percent of your attention.

        To make sure your brand continues to be relevant and visible, you should use a variety of platforms to advertise your company and stay in touch with your customers. When Howard Stern moved his show from public radio to satellite radio in 2006 he gave up millions of listeners, however he has continued to stay relevant due to his ability to market himself on other platforms. Besides his radio show, Stern also started Howard TV to air videos of his SiriusXM radio show and other Stern-related content since he knew not everyone was going to be able or willing to listen to his show on satellite radio. Additionally, Howard has made a number of TV guest appearances over the years and became a judge on America’s Got Talent, allowing him to spread his appeal to a wider audience. Naturally, he also has his own website, as well as a presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

        Make sure your company is visible on the social media platforms and other marketing venues where you know you can find your customers, and you’ll have the opportunity to turn customers into repeat buyers as well as influential advocates of your brand.

        Less Can Be More


        Less is More... Why you need to edit

          Howard Stern learned at an early age about the importance of editing – while doing impressions in front of his parents, his father would sometimes stop Howard and say, Stop! You’re going on too long. Shorten it up! Make it interesting!This lesson of less is more is one reason that Howard is one of the best interviewers of our time as he is willing to oftentimes cut off his interviewees mid-sentence to ensure that the end product (the interview) is interesting to his audience.

          Consumers are getting flooded with a constant barrage of information and advertisements leading to limited patience and shorter attention spans. Therefore, it’s important to find ways of keeping a user’s attention. Think about simplifying your campaign messages, using visuals such as infographics or videos, and editing your content to be more scannable instead of an “overwhelming mass of text”.

          Stand Out From The Crowd

            One reason why Howard Stern is so popular is because there is no one else on TV or radio like him. Just the name “Howard Stern” immediately brings to mind a feeling of excitement and anticipation of entertaining content. He has created a bold, assertive brand for himself that is impossible to ignore, and that’s why his followers will go with him everywhere he goes. He doesn’t try to copy other media personalities so he can succeed.

            He does things his own way, and even when that makes some people angry, it doesn’t stop them from noticing him and giving him valuable publicity that only adds fuel to the fire of his success. Make sure your company is unique, and people will notice you because you are offering something different from the rest.
