If you have a product or program that you have put all of your heart into to get off the ground sooner or later someone with recommend that you talk with the folks at Barrington. The CEO and Founder Peter Stavisky does have the experience from running one of the most successful product marketing firms Talk America in the early 2000's -- but read on. Barrington radio has been around about 10 years but their team is mostly in CT. Their Chicago office is really just a sales and marketing office. They say that they will charge you per call on paid media where they take the risk and only charge you when you get the sales calls. But Here's the problem and why you need to listen up. These guys don't take on every product (far from it). Their biz dev teams get you all excited that Barrington is going to back your product and put their money at risk......but at the end of the day they really only fund one in every three that get to their product boardroom ! Here's the worst part. Barrignton will put up the funds only on the ones they pick but then they fully admit that only about one in three that they test actually work well enough for them for what they call a full roll out. So here's the real numbers for those who want to know. Their Biz dev teams select 1 out of ten - then the company selects just 1/3 of those and only 1/3 tested make it to roll out. So for every 1000 inventors/marketers that hope they will be taken on by Barrington only about 100 make it past their Biz Dev people. Then only 33 of those are selected for testing and only 11 a year go into roll out. That's right only 1.1 out of 100 people that call them are likely to be made rich by their model. So if you have a really hot product - push your Barrington biz dev manager for a call with one of the partners as your chances only go up when someone high up at Barrington believes in your product. Don't believe what you hear.....they have winners but lots of losers. Barrington is no scam. They will tell you if they think you have something worth them putting their media money behind but the claims some people are making of these guys minting millionaires is really only a few new ones a year....... and Barrington only puts money behind a select few they want to bank roll.. don't believe anyone telling you you can walk in the door and walk out with them
accepting your product for testing...or you will walk away somewhat crushed as I did when they decided not to fund me.... who knows I may come back when I have something I think fits their model better...
