No Performance Tax

The National Association of Broadcasters wanted to rally its members and the public to help defeat a proposed performance tax that would hurt local radio stations and limit access to free radio. WSITS built a public microsite that explained the issue, engaged visitors and directed them to take action. Videos, text and news articles are used to explain the proposed tax and the threat to radio in simple terms, and regular blog entries keep users informed about the latest news. Visitors are asked to share why they love radio and are connected to the effort on other platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. And an online letter-writing campaign allows visitors to directly contact their Senators and Congressman and urge them to oppose the pending legislation.
