Here’s some further information suppied by RadioCentre.
Radio – the broadcast linear flow of curated, predominantly live, presenter-led music and speech based audio entertainment – is now part of a much wider audio ecology.
Before the audio revolution, there used to be two choices for listeners – live radio or your personally-owned music collection.
Now, with the rise of new audio formats such as podcasts and streamed music services, listeners have more options than ever before. The rise of multiple-function mobile devices (formally known as phones) and the fact that audio content is “device neutral” for the most part, means that people can listen to almost anything, anywhere, and at any time.
Demonstrating the impact of radio
There is a wealth of industry research that demonstrates the impact of radio across a range of metrics when used as part of a wider media campaign.
According to UK econometric analysis radio produces £7.70 revenue ROI for every pound spent – second only to TV overall, and higher in a number of product categories e.g. retail, finance, travel, automotive. This is supported by separate analysis which demonstrates that radio delivers profit ROI of £1.61 per £1 spend, again second only to TV.
When included in the mix, radio advertising significantly increases the effects of brand communication over TV advertising alone, helping brands spring to mind more readily in purchasing situations. See Radio: The Brand Multiplier for more detail.
Analysis of the IPA Databank reveals that including radio as part of the mix significantly increases the chance of achieving brand fame.
