Successful advertising is all about the client. Can you solve their problems with your product? The modern consumer cares very little about how long you’ve been in business or how many business awards you’ve won, but cares deeply if your product can help them. If you’re prepared to build advertising campaigns with strong, story-telling messages that benefit your market, then radio is for you. No other form of advertising can shape the imagination the way that radio can. Make radio work for you by Advertising with well crafted, story-based messages. After all, who doesn’t love a good story?
If you have a brand that a large portion of the population needs, radio will be an excellent form of advertising for you. The more niche your product, the more difficult it is to reach your target, but if your widget is found in every household, then by all means, add radio to your budget.
Radio results are best seen over the long term. Not everyone is listening every minute of every day, so your ad may not be heard by everyone, every time it runs. That’s why advertising in rotational time slots over a long period of time will yield you the best results. UCB’s advantage here over other stations is that our listeners rarely change the dial. We are THEIR station and they identify with the advertisers as being partners with THEIR station.
