Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, in December of 2020, current Owner and Brand Manager Dawson Haywood created the Ok Listen Here Podcast to take his passion for sports and implement it via podcast for an audience to listen to. The podcast produced a steady number of listeners each week and covered various sports topics relative to the time. Unfortunately, after only a few episodes, the podcast shut down due to logistical issues and lack of funding, and Ok Listen Here was nothing more than a brand name.
Over the next few months, the future of Ok Listen Here was in question. Instead of letting the brand fold, Haywood invested in the domain Oklistenhere.com and created the Ok Listen Here Blog along with that purchase. With support from companies like Mantra Supply and The Heatin' Up Podcast, the blog quickly grew its audience and produced articles nearly every other day.
As Ok Listen Here's audience grew, so did Oklistenhere.com and the Ok Listen Here Online Store was created. The first product, Ok Listen Here Stickers, was put on the site and sold within weeks of purchasing the domain. Over time, the store continued to grow with more Ok Listen Here branded products.
Blogs were published, the following on the website and across social media continued to grow, and it was not before long that Ok Listen Here began expanding into other projects. Today, Ok Listen Here is now home to Ok Listen Here Sport Media, The Ok Listen Here Blog, The Ok Listen Here Dynasty Fantasy Football League, Dawson's Sports Journal, The TK Snaps Brand, Keaton Long Snapping, and The Little Aussie Podcast.
That leads us to today. Over the last ten months, oklistenhere.com has had over 2,000 unique visitors visit the site to read blog articles, participate in our NFL Perfect Week Challenge, purchase products, and so much more. Because of our audience's support, Ok Listen Here is very excited to announce that we have extended our ownership of oklistenhere.com for another year until March 23, 2023!
We want to thank everyone who has been a part of this growing process for supporting and continuing to support what was nothing but an idea. Over the next few months, the Ok Listen Here team will discuss future projects so that our audience has more to participate and engage with!
Again, thank you all for your support of Ok Listen Here!
