Businesses and organizations are often looking for the most cost-effective ways to market their products and services. With so many media choices available to advertisers, it can be hard to choose the right one. With its endless possibilities, radio advertising is a great place to start!
Radio reaches 92% of adults in the US every week and garners more listening time than any other media. Radio listeners tend to be creatures of habit, consistently tuning into radio stations they are familiar with. By buying radio spots in the same time slot each day, you’re able to build brand awareness.
Being able to target specific demographics, consumer groups, geographic areas, and psychographics is a great advantage to radio advertising. Using different radio formats allow you to reach different segments of listeners by age group, interests, gender, and more. Moreover, radio allows your message to be localized to reach specific markets and can be scheduled to reach your target audience at the time of their availability. There are limitless opportunities when creating radio commercials.
The relevance of radio advertising has not diminished. Even with the rise of smart devices and audio streaming platforms, the majority of listeners still choose AM/FM radio and tend to be highly engaged with the content they listen to. Radio listeners are less likely to be distracted than when using other media sources and are better able to recall advertisements. In addition, 60% of people believe radio advertisements are trustworthy compared to TV, apps and websites, and social media.
