Targeting Your Audience
Radio advertising allows you to target your message. 106.9 SFM is local radio, which means that there is no wastage unlike TV, most newspapers and other radio stations, that cover a much wider geographical area and charge you for the priviledge. With 106.9 SFM you can advertise to listeners in Sittingbourne, Milton Regis and Teynham, and different types of listeners at different times of the day through programme sponsorship.
It's long been accepted that radio, although generally under-used for advertising, represents the best value for money of all forms of advertising media. Ad avoidance is also very low for radio, as listeners are less likely to avoid adverts in the way they might with newspaper adverts and/or television commercials. Radio enables relevancy, and reaches people at different times and places. Advertising is 60% more likely to be recalled when it's relevant to the listener's other activity (e.g. driving, browsing the internet).
Radio creates a "share of mind" for brands. As radio commercials are broadcast regularly, and listeners tend to spend a long time listening each week, a brand on radio can create a larger "share of mind" than its competitors. Online, radio drives a response. At any given time, a fifth of internet users are listening to the radio, and could be just one click away from your website or Facebook page.
Radio is considered a friend. Listeners tend to use radio for company, which leads to radio being seen as a friend. Just like a recommendation from a friend or word of mouth, this can be quite effective in forming purchase decisions.
