Modules:

  • Know Radio

Why do so many people listen to radio, even in such a fragmented media environment? Such a popular medium must have some special qualities.  These are the qualities that an advertiser can capitalise on.
We take a journey into the brain and explore why audio is an extremely powerful sense and linked to our emotions and memory building.  Did you know that you probably have effortlessly, without trying, memorised around 2 000 songs?
Sonic triggers/markers creates a picture in the brain instantly – how can advertisers use this effectively?
Listening to radio makes you happy – we can share a study that unpacks this.
We also look at how radio works with other media types, and could be used to ‘amplify’ advertising.

  • Know the principles of radio planning

This provides attendees with a sound understanding of the fundamentals of radio planning. A brief introduction to the new BRC RAM survey explains the basic metrics of the currency on which radio is bought and sold. We then demystify the intimidating jargon that surrounds radio planning and discuss how these concepts are used to assess station and campaign performance.
We explore the basic questions planners need to ask when putting a plan together:

    • Who do we want to reach,
    • When and where we need to do so
    • How much we need to invest.
    • Whilst we consider the more technical questions such as how much frequency do we need and spot length, we balance these quantitative issues with qualitative factors such as mind-sets and modes of listening. It is only by meshing both aspects of planning together, that we can deliver the most impactful radio campaigns. And, of course, we need to appreciate the role that brilliant creative can play in achieving stand-out campaigns.

Listener engagement is not limited to thirty second spots. We contextualise the branded content options available to advertisers.
Radio is remarkably compatible and synergistic with both traditional and new media. We discuss how to make sure that radio delivers the maximum performance within 360% campaigns.
The session empowers strategists, planners and advertisers with the knowledge and concepts to ensure they get the best out of radio.
