The advertising landscape has undergone so many changes in the recent past. Technology has changed a lot of things leading to a lot of digital advertising such as social media. As much as there are many preferred advertising mediums, the old ones still have a place in the industry. It all depends on your product and target market. Radio and Television have been used for a long time. As much as technology has changed many things, it has also influenced radio by introducing digital streaming platforms such s as Pandora and Spotify making people to still desire to listen to the radio.
When you compare radio and TV, radio has more followers since there are many people who listen to the radio while on the move. Radio has an extensive way of entrainment using both the traditional and digital channels. Through digital streaming, users can get plenty of shows, podcast series, customized stations, and news. That has led to more popularity and given it a good position. Some of the reasons you should consider radio advertising include:
It is easy to target your audience
With radio, it is much easy to target your audience and customize a sales approach for them. Listeners are segregated in different groups, for example, there are listeners who prefer certain stations or certain shows. For example, if you want to advertise on tutoring jobs online, you will have to look for a station that is modern as modern people are more likely to be interested in that and they will easily be found in that station.
It is easy to stand out
As compared to other advertising mediums, radio is uncluttered hence will give you more returns for your advertising. Tv, newspapers, and magazines have so many ads when you compare to the radio. The radio will devote a few minutes every hour to ads. That means that your ad is more likely to stand out when you are using the radio as compared to other mediums. The fact that radio devotes less time to ads does not mean that it does not have a large audience as there are many people who listen to the radio while they are on the move such as when driving, exercising or at work.
With radio, it is easy to get your ad featured more frequently as compared to other mediums. Frequency leads to repetition which is likely to have an impact on the listener and they are more likely to buy what they have heard being advertised over and over again.
It can get personal
When you are advertising on the radio, it is easy to get personal with your ads. This is due to the fact that you can easily stir emotions and create demand. The radio will not engage the same way as TV through videos, but it still has a way of engaging with listeners in a personal way that will persuade them to make a purchase. When listeners feel engaged personally, they will more likely want to be associated with your brand.
