       Flexibility
       Consistency
The Power Of Sound

Radio is Evocative
What is the body’s most important organ? - The
Brain
Radio appeals to listeners through their brains rather
than through their eyes.
Radio is an imagination medium, using the mind of
the listener to create unique, evocative and effective
images for each individual on an intensely personal
level.
The Power Of Sound

Radio is Emotional
The Emotional appeal of radio is unique among
media.
Radio’s emotional pull can be quite strong, as Orson
Well found when his “War of the Worlds” broadcast
caused people to flee their houses armed with
shotguns and pitchforks, convinced that Martians were
invading Grovers Mills, New Jersey.
Radio is “Theater of the Mind.”
The Power Of Sound
Radio Motivates
A radio message pushes buttons in listeners’ minds,
activating memories of:
   • Every Picture Ever Seen
   • Every Emotion Ever Felt
Radio’s emotional appeal is immediate, and radio’s
immediacy is a powerful motivator.
Direct response advertisers everywhere testify to the
tangible results generated by radio commercials.
Listeners hear the message and react.
The Power Of Sound
Radio is Diverse
Radio’s appeal to advertisers lies in its high targetability.
Radio stations are lifestyle choices for listeners whose
common attitudes produce format characteristics.
Radio’s diversity allows advertisers to target consumers:
               By Demo Group

               By Ethnic Group

               By Geographic Region

               By Format Type

               By Purchasing Likelihood

               By Consumer Profile
