When the gate swings open
I’m hopin’ for a helluva ride.
A great eight seconds
Somethin’ close to suicide.
 
I guess I’m ready to go
Ring the bell, start the show
Get ‘em up! (come on boys)
THIS IS RODEO!
 
When the buzzer sounds 
I’ll be ridin’ right on top
With a whole lotta skill
And a little bit of luck
 
I know I’m ready to go
Ring the bell, start the show
Get ‘em up! (come on boys)
THIS IS RODEO!
 
And I’m fallin’ down on my
ASK me if it hurts like
HELLO, yes I’m feelin’ fine.
Gonna dust my self off
Hold my head up
Show a little cowboy pride.
 
Well I’m black and blue 
From my hat down to my boots
Let me do it again
I’ve got nothin’ left to lose.
 
I’m rough ‘n ready to go
Ring the bell, start the show
Get ‘em up! (come on boys)
THIS IS RODEO! 
(Repeat)
 
Breakdown***
 
Yes I’m rough ‘n ready to go
Ring the bell, start the show … THIS IS RODEO!
 

Women make 89% of the banking decisions for their families.
 
Studies show that women influence up to 80% of household buying decisions worldwide but 73% of them report being unsatisfied with their banking services. What do you think are the main reasons?
 
First and foremost, women are unsatisfied because the companies “are built on masculine norms” and one-size-fits-all format. Developing products and services relying on male traits and values do not resonate with female consumers.
 
In order to succeed in tapping the market for women's banking services, banks need to change the way they communicate. That is the key to reach growing segment of women.- Gemma Cernuda is specialist of branding and communication for women.
 
 
 

The purpose of a branded audio package for radio and TV is simple:
  • To keep your brand in the mind of the listener past the 60 seconds you paid for air time
  • To create a "light fog" as opposed to a "sledgehammer" in the market or markets you are serving (Al Ries / Jack Trout: "Positioning: The Battle for Your Mind".
 
The "science to the subjectivity" we use on every female production package is based on market research, trends and intuition.  In this case a female decision maker:
 
  1. Use a strong female lead vocal to attract a female target
  2. Full orchestrations and bold productions are aimed towards the 24-45 female professional or head of a household
  3. Use mnenomics instead of annoying repetition to plant your brand in the mind of the listener.
  4. Oh yeah...and make sure you can understand every...single...word!

 

Banking and Financial Services Medley of 4 Demos by Admagination

  • The Bank of Commerce / "Feels like home"
  • First Horizon Home Loans / "Experience and trust...that's why they can't help talking about us"
  • Community Bank / "Local money working for local people"
  • Venture Bank / "Independant as you" (male and female lead vocals)

Fun Factoids:

"Wheaties".  The very first singing advertisment in history. "If it wasn't for a radio jingle sung on Christmas Eve in 1926 by a barbershop quartet in Minneapolis, Wheaties cereal would have been long forgotten by now. ... Initially known as “Washburn's Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flakes,” the name was dropped a year later for Wheaties."

"We have had a jingle from Admagination for several years.  It has been the best branding tool in our market we've ever had!" - Art Gregory / Zamzows

"We wanted to have our jingle sound like a certain popular song.  Admagination researched the licensing and found it was not available so they created a similar jingle and it plays perfectly" - C Watson / Debut Electrical

"I've recommended Admagination to 3 other business in my area.  Everyone was completely different and has build better branding for all three" - JD Vigil Heating and Air

 
An audio branding and image package (jingle) has two main functions:
 
  1. Extend the "remember-ability" of your product or service past the 30 or 60 seconds of air time you purchased
  2. To position your company as the ultimate choice for providing solutions for your customers

We are not writing your next favorite song.  We're not just filling in time while we work on our album.  We love the advertising business and audio for broadcasting productions because they help you!

We put "science to the subjectivity" of music and lyric so we provide you with a lasting solution you can depend on to help bring customers to your door and "cut through all the clutter" of competitor advertising.  With over 700 local, regional and national packages created since 1994, it's in our DNA and we look forward to bringing our time and talent to your business.

A jingle package saves you time and money because your media partners get to know exactly how to create new copy for promotions, services, products...without having to re-invent the wheel each time.  Each time your ad runs, it builds off of previous airplays and constantly reinforces your brand!
