Radio Marketing for Pizzerias

By Dann Whitaker Even with the rise of streaming music services, traditional AM/FM radio remains the most popular way for people to listen to music, news and talk shows, according to a recent industry study. I was recently asked if I thought terrestrial (over-the-air) radio still holds value as an advertising tool for local pizzerias. The answer is a resounding “yes.” Recent listener trend surveys demonstrate the value of investing a portion of your integrated marketing budget in local radio advertising. Despite the rising popularity of streaming music services like Pandora and Spotify, traditional AM/FM radio remains the most popular way for people to listen to music, news and talk shows, according to a recent study by Clear Channel Media & Entertainment and MediaVest.

We came up with 3 important questions you should ask yourself when writing an audio script in order to be effective. Do I have a “writing process”?

Does radio deserve more spend?

Radio listening accounts for more than a fifth of our daily media consumption, yet commands only 6 per cent of all marketing budgets. At the launch of the RAB’s Audio Now research last week, the message came loud and clear: clients continue to underestimate the advertising power of radio, which should by rights be accounting for closer to 20 per cent of total media spend. The research demonstrated that live radio listening is holding up well in the face of on-demand digital platforms such as Spotify and Deezer, as well as video and audio clips from YouTube. The RAB’s planning director, Mark Barber, told the audience of media buyers and radio executives that on-demand services have been taking listening share away from owned music, rather than live radio. The research identified a number of "need-states" that are satisfied by audio. Take part in our poll below...

Spotify For Brands: Marketing Through Music

Marketers Question Effectiveness of Traditional Radio Advertisements.

New Haven, CT (PRWEB) June 24, 2014 Many marketing professionals indicate they are “fed up” with the quality of results from traditional radio spot advertisements and believe “there must be a better way” to achieve marketing objectives using radio.

Marketers Question Effectiveness of Traditional Radio Advertisements

Sixty-two percent of consumer brand marketers and advertising agency decision-makers agreed with that sentiment in a random poll conducted by radio marketing company CRN International.

The findings by no means were an indictment of radio as an effective marketing medium.

The responses suggested high levels of satisfaction with a number of non-traditional radio marketing tactics. 4 Reasons To Leverage Audio into your Email Marketing Campaign.
