Why You Should Use Radio Marketing

An ad campaign is only as effective as the platforms it uses to reach audiences. With all the talk about digital marketing, television, and print ads, it’s easy to forget the power of radio. Even in a media-saturated world, radio marketing remains one of the most effective mediums to engage with target audiences.
Over 92 percent of adults in the US listen to the radio, according to Nielsen. Television, on the other hand, lags behind at 87 percent. The weekly reach of radio is around 82 percent. Digital platforms and the connected devices they reach are far behind.

If you’re wondering whether your mass communication campaign needs radio, here are five reasons to include it.

It’s the most localized medium
The biggest advantage of radio marketing is its ability to reach local audiences. You can direct your campaign at specific localities based on their demographics and psychographics.

Plus, there are different audiences for different times of the day. This gives a more focused reach for advertisers. You can use radio marketing to reach both suburban housewives and older males during the same day.

It’s cost-effective
Compared to other mediums, radio is less expensive. There are various slots that will accommodate various budgets. So, just because you don’t get the morning hours doesn’t mean that your marketing won’t be effective.
Importantly, radio spots are cheaper to produce. In fact, you rarely hear of a million-dollar radio spot whereas television and print campaigns would need a budget for the shoot and extensive post-production.

It’s excellent for integrated campaigns
Another advantage of radio that most national and regional advertisers have found out is that it works well as part of an integrated strategy. It has enormous power when combined with digital marketing to boost both awareness and sales.

One reason could be that radio gives a voice to your campaign. While all other mediums rely on either visuals or visuals plus audio, radio relies on voice alone which strikes a chord among listeners.

It has a loyal base
This is the reason why political campaigns heavily use radio. The medium has a strong and loyal base that turns up to hear their favorite talk show hosts every day. Other than music, it’s one of the reasons why radio has such an exponential reach.

Radio DJs have exceptional levels of engagement with their listeners, with most audiences being privy to details of their personal lives. This makes the format an effective medium for brands to target audiences in a lively format.

It’s a companion medium
You can listen to the radio while driving, working, or at a party. It doesn’t stop people from engaging in their primary activities but adds to those experiences. This means that there’s little resistance among its listeners.
That fact makes radio one of the more stable mediums to reach and engage with audiences.

I've known the president of Spin Modern Dave Flanagan for over 25 years and there was no question in my mind that when I decided to open my own small business a year ago that I wanted Dave and Spin Modern at my side. I have absolutely no regrets. The website that they designed for us is absolutely top notch. They have made adjustments to our site on multiple occasions over the last year to enable technological innovations that enable better client communications and make doing business easier. Spin Modern made all of these transitions seamless. Their SEO management is second to none. You won't find anyone out there who will work harder for you than all of the folks over at Spin Modern. If you want a true partner in your business, these are the people to which you need to talk!
