Raskin Resources Productions, Inc
I am an independent multi-media and radio producer who helps businesses grow and brand themselves by delivering their message to the audience through multiple platforms.
What one unique aspect of your business will make you succeed over the next year?
Offering businesses the opportunity to help radio listeners to turn problems into solutions. This is done by educating the audience and answering their questions on the guests expertise.
How does your business make a positive impact on the community?
This multi-media platform allows the business to get their positive message out in a leveraged way reaching thousands of listeners at the same time through radio, the internet and phone.
What would you do with a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, training, and help from a SCORE mentor to grow your business?
I would invest in an audio system if I needed to host the radio show from home - due to inclement weather. I would work with a SCORE mentor to help keep me on track with finding sponsors and support my efforts.
The following responses will be considered in judging for a SCORE Award.
How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
It has provided me with a solid plan and strategy. I have also been able to track progress with my SCORE advisor. Bill's guidance helped me when I applied for the RI SBA award in 2015, which I received in the category of Home-based small business.
Have you had to overcome any obstacles along the way to build your business?
Yes, I lost a major client which was two-thirds of my business. With dedication and persistence, I am recouping the loss and am expanding my client base. My SCORE mentors were very encouraging during this process.
How will you utilize the marketing video and national recognition of winning a SCORE Award to help take your business to the next level?
I will promote through social media channels and my radio program, as well as speak to groups about the benefits of SCORE and this award.
