    Why use radio advertising?

    The medium that’s at home, work, in the car, on smart speakers and online

    • Creative commercials are memorable and stand out among the advertisements we see every day.
    • Only cinema advertising has lower ad avoidance than radio advertising.
    • Radio commercials are broadcast regularly and listeners spend several hours tuned in every week. Commercials could be heard more often than adverts seen online or in print.
    • Listeners tend to use radio for company, which leads to radio being viewed as a trusted medium.
    • Advertising is 60% more likely to be recalled when it’s relevant to the listener’s other activity (e.g. driving, browsing the internet).
