Put simply, it is a way to promote your product or service on commercial radio stations through the medium of short audio adverts (typically 30 seconds long). These radio adverts typically run in between songs, chat and news bulletins and are used by a range of companies due to their ability to reach a huge cross-section of society.
Radio ads are used for a variety of messages; from commercial selling through to public service messaging.

The simple answer is yes!
When you think about it, most people listen to the radio on a daily basis; in their homes, at work and also when driving, therefore it is a great way to reach a mass amount of people quickly. This mass reach is one of the main benefits; it can hit millions of people all at once. Most forms of marketing media (apart from TV advertising) cannot claim to achieve this, whilst radio adverts manage to do this at a fraction of the price of TV advertising.
However, even though a radio ad hits a huge number of listeners this isn’t untargeted as stations have different demographics e.g. younger people tend to listen to Hits/Capital FM, older listeners tend to tune into Smooth. Our teams will help match your product and message to the most suitable stations.
This targeting is the main reason radio advertising achieves brilliant results time after time and why radio advertising effectiveness is high; radio has high reach but wastage is reduced as these people are targetted.
The value for money is another reason radio is popular with many advertisers and companies.
As radio listeners represent a great cross-section of society, advertising on radio works for most businesses and is a popular form of marketing employed by a range of companies from diverse industries. The most popular types of companies who advertise on radio through our teams include:

With your radio advertising, you must remember that the audience can only listen to your product or service being described by words - they obviously can't see it - this means you need to create an innovative advert which will catch their attention. Also, you don't have much time - 30 seconds is not a lot of time to describe what you are offering - so you must get to the point and be clear and concise. Sometimes catchy phrases and slogans work and a good sound bed can attract attention further - but also just being clear and direct is important; don't try and cram too much in.
To summarise we would say; try not to be too clever, as most listeners are doing other things - so get to the point and don't be too confusing. You just need to grab their attention and encourage them to seek more information at a later time.
