Listeners use myFM Radio for emotional reasons – to keep their spirits up, to stop themselves from feeling bored in a car or while doing daily chores. This leads to them seeing radio as a kind of friend, and this is a valuable context for an advertiser to appear in.
In the same way that the music industry uses radio to gain airplay of their artists and create chart hits, myFM Radio also creates a sense of ubiquity for brands. This is for two main reasons – firstly, because radio ads are on frequently and secondly because listeners tend to spend so long listening. A brand which is big in radio can create a disproportionately large share of mind for itself.
myFM talks to people at the right time and place
myFM works in "real time" so ads can be run at just the time when people are most ready to be influenced by the message. For example, a leisure centre can advertise on a Friday night when people are planning their weekend; a car dealership can target the 'drive time' to reach people in cars; a local retail outlet can advertise on Friday and Saturday mornings to promote weekend offers. Research shows that ads are far more effective when people are thinking about a related subject.
myFM reaches out to customer
While it's easy to skip the ads on TV and in newspapers, radio ads are harder to avoid. Research shows that people just don't avoid the ads like they do in other media. This means that radio is ideal for reaching out to new customers (the lifeblood of most businesses) - they will hear the ads regardless of whether they think they are in the market or not.
myFM is a 'local friend' for listeners
Listeners typically describe their favorite local radio station as a friend, and that friendship can be used by advertisers to change the way local people perceive them - to keep ahead of the competition. This is especially true for branded content (sponsorships and promotions). If a myFM announcer says that prizes are "thanks to our friends at ABC Motors", listeners will begin to feel a warmer relationship with that company.
Radio is the most flexible medium
Business conditions can change fast, and radio is well set to meet those changes. Production of commercials is quick and relatively low-cost, and this allows local advertisers to put out just the right message at the right time. This flexibility works particularly well for advertisers who's business changes fast with late deals, extended sales, reaction to news/weather with late deals, extended sales, reaction to news/weather.
Radio builds long term brand dominance
Naturally the listeners to myFM are local consumers. But more importantly they are also the right kind of local consumer. myFM listeners tend to be family oriented. This means they are more likely to have families and to spend more on shopping and home purchases.
myFM reaches the right local audiences
Small businesses can become much bigger business by using radio as their primary medium. Because radio messages are repeated more often and have lower levels of avoidance, by the time a listener is ready to make a purchase, the retailer's or businesses brand name and values are strongly established in their mind.
