How Radio Advertising Works:
"It's like television...except you don't have to look at it!" Charles Osgood said it best. "If television had been invented first and then radio had come along, people would think, 'What a wonderful thing this radio is! It's like television except you don't have to look at it!"' Radio is the ultimate personal medium, a communication between a radio station and a single listener. Radio advertising offers you the opportunity to deliver a simple yet powerful message to individuals, one on one, in the comfort of their homes, their cars, their workplaces....into their lives. You're not buying a commercial; you're buying intimate access to the listener.
How to Buy Radio:
The great Prussian war philosopher Karl von Klausewitz wrote in 1832 to keep the forces concentrated in an overpowering mass. This principle of concentration is a good guide to buying radio effectively. Repetition establishes retention in the mind of the listener. In Greater Lafayette, buy one or two primary stations, and as many others as you can afford, without spreading your "forces" too thin. If you can afford to buy 60 commercials to promote a sales event, concentrate 30 commercials on two stations...over three days and be an important, dominant presence in the marketplace. You can also build frequency with consistency over a period of time, by buying sponsorships for 13, 26, or 52 weeks.
How to Create a Radio Message:
First and foremost, you can be as involved in the process as you desire. Your first decision must be whether your ad will promote image or ask for a specific response. As the message is being written, it must stay focused and in tune with your marketing strategy. The creative team at 104.1 WLBC/Fox Sports Radio 102.9FM & 1340AM will develop a message based on your response to this simple question: "Why should people do business with you?" Once a script is approved, the 104.1 WLBC/Fox Sports Radio 102.9FM & 1340AM RADIO production staff will create the final product (at no additional cost) for introduction to our listeners. You may wish to add your own voice to the commercial as a personal signature to the message.

A fairly high percentage of all advertising everywhere produce less than satisfying results. If your view of advertising in general is somewhat suspect, you are not alone.
