The process of planning an ad campaign on the radio can be considerably easier if you keep in mind these guidelines.
- Understand your business requirement and target audience: When starting an ad campaign, it is important for you to keep in mind the agenda of your campaign. It is most common that advertisers choose among these agendas:
1) Brand Awareness
2) Changing Perception
3) Sales promotion
4) Generate Buzz/Notify Events
5) Reinforce Association
Also, it is important for you to keep in mind the target audience and to make sure that you reach them. Every brand, product or service has a target group among the population they offer the services to; you can choose whether you want to target women or men; you can also specify their age in order to further channelize it to fit your requirements.
- Decide on and stick to your Budget: The budget is the oil that fuels your campaign. Allocating a budget and rigidly sticking to it is essential. Try to get the most out of your budget by effectively placing your ads at the most opportune moments.
- Choose the right station and the right media plan: Choosing the right station for your ads is of utmost importance to your campaign. For example, Radio Mirchi is the most popular station among school and college students; so, if your target group is an audience of 14-22 years of age, Radio Mirchi would be your ideal choice. It is also important to choose the right media plan for your campaign. releaseMyAd has a variety of optimized media plans for you to choose from with varying frequency and reach. In radio lingo, Reach is the number of individuals who are exposed to a certain ad at least one time in a specified time period. Similarly, Frequency is the number of times an ad reaches a particular individual.
- Negotiate Rates with the station(s): It is very important that your ad reaches the target audience with maximum frequency. Choose the right reach and frequency for your ad with the help of experts at releaseMyAd.
