iHeartMedia has launched the Small Business Crisis Resource, a new initiative to help small business owners across the country obtain information on available benefits and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Small Business Crisis Resource will serve as a centralized source for small business owners and includes a weekly iHeart Small Business newsletter, as well as a website providing information on the Federal stimulus package, up-to-date news, state-by-state resources, links to top business-focused podcasts and more, at iHeartRadio.com/SmallBusiness.
Small business owners also have the opportunity to sign up for special webinars, which will kick off this Monday, May 4 featuring iHeartRadio’s Elvis Duran joining senior officials from the U.S. Small Business Administration and discussing ways small businesses can find assistance and vital information during this unprecedented time. The webinar will also include a Q&A session offering the opportunity to ask the SBA questions. Details on how to sign up for the webinar are available here.
In March, the government approved a historic $2 trillion stimulus package that includes $376 billion in relief for small businesses. Since it can be challenging for small business owners to understand the key details of the stimulus package, including eligibility requirements, this new resource helps business owners know exactly what they must do in order to apply for Paycheck Protection Program loans and additional support from the U.S. government.
In addition, iHeartMedia is offering local business owners bonus media incentive opportunities and extended payment terms to help with their advertising and marketing “re-opening” strategy.
“At iHeart, our focus continues to be about serving our local communities, including the small businesses that support many residents,” said Hartley Adkins, Chief Operating Officer for iHeartMedia Markets Group. “We also know that studies show business owners look to radio as their trusted news source more than any other medium, so we want to do everything we can to ensure that these businesses have the important information they need to survive and get through this pandemic as best they can.”
Small Business Crisis Resource is available free of charge online and is promoted across iHeartMedia’s 850 broadcast stations in 150 markets, station social media and websites, and iHeartRadio.com, reaching millions of listeners and small business owners nationwide.
