Bailey Gardiner Promotes High-Profile Clients

Local integrated marketing agency Bailey Gardiner Inc. is busy these days as the San Diego agency gets to work with several high-profile clients.

BGI is working on promotions for the San Diego House of Blues, which is slated to open in mid-May. After five years of delays by HOB, the agency was retained in March to publicize the grand opening of the concert club and restaurant and to provide ongoing marketing communications for the nightclub.

The agency was chosen after its successful launch of the Anaheim House of Blues in Downtown Disney.

The House of Blues, which is on Fifth Avenue in Downtown San Diego, is undergoing an interior renovation.

The HOB is designed as a multifaceted entertainment mecca, housing a multilevel music hall featuring national and local entertainment, state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology, and a dance floor.

The San Diego House of Blues includes a 215-seat restaurant and full-service bar.

Bailey Gardiner has also been retained by the Olson Co., an Irvine-based homebuilder, and Douglas Wilson Cos., a San Diego-based firm offering a wide range of specialized business, workout and real estate services to corporate entities throughout the western United States.

For the Olson Co., BGI will handle the public relations and advertising for the company’s growing San Diego division, which includes the development of five new residential communities throughout the county.

The contract with the Olson Co., took just two weeks to finalize and has no set length.

For the Douglas Wilson Cos., Bailey Gardiner will provide national public relations for the company as well as overseeing the marketing activities for several of its major development projects, including the Mark, a $155 million mixed-use project under construction Downtown.

The bidding process for the Douglas Wilson Cos. took a month to decide and is also an ongoing contract, company officials said.

BGI hasn’t yet hired additional employees to handle the workload.

Internet Talk On The Rise:

The number of voices heard on local Internet talk radio network is increasing as the network recently teamed up with Carlsbad-based HayHouse Publications to launch 20 hours of weekly shows.

The Internet radio network, which has more than 80 shows per week, has set up remote studio locations for the shows, which are being hosted by 20 of the publishing company’s authors.

Each author will have a one-hour show airing from 1-5 p.m. weekdays.

The network, which premiered the talk shows on March 7, is continually adding more shows as Internet radio gains in popularity, said Chris Murch, founder of the Sorrento Mesa-based Internet radio station.

“In the last few years we have experienced double digit growth,” Murch said of Internet radio.

“Last week (the week of March 21) alone more than 20 million people listened to Internet radio. There is no end in sight. We keep adding shows and content every day.”

The increase in popularity is likely due to the accessibility of the shows as computers and the Internet become more technologically friendly to consumers, Murch said.

“Before they had to make an effort to listen. Now technology has made it a lot easier to listen,” he said.

All shows are aired live and then archived for listening on demand, a feature that allows listeners to hear a show at their convenience. produces a two-hour weekly radio show for eBay, dubbed “eBay radio,” as well as a full lineup of programs for Entrepreneur Radio, which includes shows on sales and marketing, franchises, and home-based businesses.
