Run a Contest — All you have to do is set a keyword and then let your listeners know where to text! The first person to reply wins. Frontline will tell you and the winner that they’ve won, so you can announce it on-air.
Quick Poll — You can publish a survey to all your subscribers at the push of a button. This survey will send a question and series of multiple choice answers to a specified group or list of users. Users can reply using keywords that will automatically tabulate and graph responses, telling you what your listeners are saying in real time.
Request a Song — Use this Activity to open up the request line and let the audience select a song. Just set up a keyword (like “request”), followed by a song title and this will show up in the inbox so that you can cue up which requests should be played next.
Radio is the world’s most popular and powerful broadcast medium and SMS is the world’s most popular two-way engagement channel.

With Frontline + Radio, we’re building better engagement so you can broadcast a better conversation.
By adding Frontline’s two way messaging to traditional media channels like radio, you can reach a whole new level of engagement and action as part of your existing outreach strategy.
