    It depends on the country of audience and also the language. If you wish for english audience, you should try to advertise locally or on certain niches that can allow you to draw more specialized listeners.

    Although I promote my station as much as I can through social media, I found that the best way is to have a some sort of guest appear on the station. This will effectively bring the guests' audience to you, and some of them will decide they like your other programming and stick around.

    We were a games orientated station at the beginning, but we added an android app, to our array of listening options like media player , real player, and a windows gadget too. but our biggest listener base is via games, we have created plugins to add to game servers, across 6 games, which allows gamers to tune in, request songs , shoutouts and also give the DJ/presenters a djftw, all live and in real time. We also have a chat room but that's to have direct chars with the presenter.

    But out we found live presenters always draw more listeners than an auto DJ, so I would say fill your schedule, but give your station as many options to be heard as you can.join forums and share share share your station name everywhere.

    Hi! I'm in The US but am affiliated with three UK licensed and legal internet radio stations. We increase listener stats by doing the obvious; great music, great presenters, joining as many social media sites and groups as possible, CD giveaways, and listening to/interacting with our listeners via social media and email. Stream reliability is very important; we just changed to a different server company and the difference in strength and reliability is like night and day! Without our listeners we wouldn't be doing what we're doing 24/7/365. Our motto for both our Presenters/DJ's and our listeners is "Have Fun!" Sure, we have to abide by The DMCA just like everyone else, but we have fun in the process! I'm new here and hope this reply is helpful.
