Why Automotive Radio Advertising Works
Radio Advertisements bring about customer loyalty. Why? First, listeners tune into a very small number of stations and are very loyal their favorites. Next, radio listeners stay tuned through commercial breaks.
Radio Advertising is more intimate. What do we mean by this? Less clutter! Approximately one-third of TV time is devoted to advertising … and an alarming two-thirds of newspapers are comprised of advertising copy! Compare that to radio, where only about one-fifth of each hour is dedicated to commercials.
Radio Advertising offers the opportunity for creativity. Remember that old saying, “Radio is theater of the mind?” It’s absolutely true. If done well, a radio advertisement will be one that listeners will be able to identify and recall.
Radio Advertising often is sent to a “captive audience.” That means it reaches consumers when they have little else to distract them. In fact, the engagement levels for radio advertising (the percentage of people who actively pay attention to the ads) is by far the highest of any mass media.
Radio is a strong “call to action” form of media. This makes it the perfect form of advertising for an auto dealer; enough said.
