Radio is a flexible medium and there are numerous ways of communicating with a station’s audience such as:

As you can imagine no two stations are the same and there are number of factors that determine the cost of radio advertising. Factors that can impact on cost are:
The number of people the station reaches
The time of day, day of week and time of year you want to advertise
The style of activity that’s been selected e.g. airtime or a promotion
The length of your radio ad, if airtime is the chosen activity
You are in safe and experienced hands with us and we will maximise your budget.
Media Buying and Creative are equal partners in the most successful radio advertising campaigns. We put a lot of thought into what your radio ad should sound like, how long it should be, and how many versions we should create.
Campaign length and intensity should also define the creative. There is a point when listener fatigue transforms positive response to an ad into a positive turn-off. To avoid this, a number of different commercials will be required.
We’ll walk you through the whole process to ensure the creative is the right fit for your campaign, assisting with ideas, scripting, voice casting, music production, sound design and copy delivery.
