"We were like everyone else, how is RED FM going to help us? As a Mining Recruitment company it is important people know who we are. With over 500 mine sites in Western Australia it is impossible to visit each one. Through RED FM’s radio campaign our aim of having the “Red Dirt” name out there has definitely been accomplished. We were promised more exposure in the West, sole sponsorship rights to radio segments and ads created to target both the client and contractors as our main focus. All benefits were delivered.Red Dirt have had a great response to our advertising with Red FM, and see this as a great marketing tool. Our original 13 week commitment in June 2007, is still continuing in 2009. Our relationship continues to grow, and we feel RED FM really understand our business needs. Big promises were made, and they were delivered. We highly recommend you use Red FM if you want to see the same benefits and exposure for your company." - Gregg Hobbs Red Dirt Personnel Group
