And, of course we can provide them with the fact that Radio reaches more people in your market than other mediums and that it’s more cost effective. But, why not take it a step further by showing the loyalty of Radio listeners when it comes to an advertiser’s products or services.

Since the world’s first successful radio broadcast on Christmas Eve, 1906, the industry has evolved into one of the most popular forms of media outlets consumers turn to.

When a radio station is pitching an advertiser for business, they need to demonstrate that they understand who the advertiser’s consumers are, what drives their purchase, and how their station best reaches them. Qualitative information helps to better understand an advertiser’s customer and demonstrate the power of the station to reach them. With qualitative research, you can profile an advertiser’s customer in great detail – learn where and how often they shop, what they’ve bought, what they plan to buy, and much much more. With competition among media increasing daily, qualitative helps you go beyond the standard age/sex demographics and set radio stations apart from one another.
