Always looking for ways to improve, we challenge ourselves to stay cutting-edge, hone our craft, and be the best in the industry.

If you ask us, or anyone else for that matter, what we consider Zimmer's signature service to be, we would say radio! It's been nearly 30 years since broadcasts began on KCLR in Missouri. Since then, our network has grown to 13 stations, including a number of stations in Springfield, Missouri. Zimmer stations have been recognized continuously for excellence in broadcasting and have won numerous awards.
We have also built deep connections with local listeners and consumers throughout the years through our radio stations and personalities. As a result, our listeners consider these personalities as close friends and thought leaders. Our clients have been able to position themselves in front of hundreds of thousands of Missouri consumers through radio advertising, endorsements and social influencer strategies, and sponsorship of local events, further establishing their unique voice and brand.
Don’t let “On-Air” deceive you, our stations are also available for listening On-Line and extend your message to thousands of unique listeners every day.
You can listen to each radio station on your mobile device by visiting the station website or by downloading the station app.
A social media influencer is an individual - in this case, a local radio personality - who has built a strong community presence and digital reputation based on their expertise and knowledge pertaining to the community and often to specific topics. They are active on their preferred social media channels and in doing so generate engagement and followers who pay close attention to their endorsements and behavior.
They aren’t just a mouthpiece. While they do use their influence to communicate various topics to their audience, social media influencers are far from a simple testimonial voice.
Our publications are targeted at people who are passionate about their hometown and are connected to the local community.
Each magazine serves as an information hub where local residents can learn more about upcoming events and interesting topics in their community. Over the years, Inside Columbia publications have developed a solid reputation with readers looking for advice from a reliable source. Advertising in Inside Columbia publications, including Inside Columbia Magazine, CEO Magazine, and BOOM! Magazine, can help your business shine as a recognized brand that supports the local community.

Content marketing is the intentional and consistent strategy of keeping fresh “content” - blogs, video, ebooks, white papers, infographics, etc. on your website. This content is fully optimized on the backend using specific on-page SEO tactics (headers, meta descriptions, optimized content, alt text, word count, etc) that help Google find and rank your website.
Such content comes in the form of:
Your website is often the first point of contact between you and your clients. Think of it as a physical person making the first impression on your behalf. You want that person to represent your company well, educate your client, be easy to find, easy to understand and be capable of guiding people to where they need to go, or even where you want them to go. It's about more than just a pretty website, it's about making sure your website has the right design, functionality, and organizational structure to do what you need it to do for your business.
A solid and consistent strategy is necessary for businesses to achieve the maximum benefit from this highly effective marketing tactic. Business owners simply don't have the time to schedule and create compelling social media posts.
We create a customized social media plan that will be consistent, relevant to your target audience, and will inspire your target audience to engage with your posts. We monitor your social media pages continuously, engaging with your audience on your behalf to build trust.

Few things can drive an advertising message home like a catchy jingle. Whether your listeners love it or hate it, a good jingle will relate your brand name with a concept, idea, or promotion. Listeners who catch your radio commercial may not notice a jaunty techno beat in the background, but they will notice your snappy jingle. The next time a listener sees a sign or ad for your business, they will immediately associate your jingle with your advertising, creating a relationship that increases the likelihood they’ll choose you the next time they need you.
Want to communicate with consumers in a more vivid and impactful way than words will allow? Photos and videos can do just that!
