Know Your Ad Copy and Minimize Your Costs

The first area that all Radio Advertisers need to understand is that your radio copy is the hammer this is going to drive your message home. If you aren’t able to engage your target audience effectively in a short period, your Radio Spot will be fruitless, and you will waste a ton of money!

Radio Copy is very similar to an elevator speech that you would give someone; you want to deliver entertainment, a solid value proposition and communicate what results your services have already delivered.

Understanding Your Persona and Delivering a Value Offer

Radio Advertising is about knowing your audience or as we call it a buyer persona and what stage of the buyers journey they are on. As a reference, we included this picture below from Hubspot.

What stage of the buyer’s journey are you engaging your prospect?

Are you trying to create awareness about a new service or product you are offering?

Are you reaffirming the value you have created with many similar customers?

These questions are so vital when it comes to segmenting your message correctly because you only have 60 seconds! You have to be concise, and you can’t be everything to everyone.

Deliver a Radio Ad Message That Creates Action

It’s similar to a party, you wouldn’t tell a friend about all the features or your party (i.e. come to my party we are going to have red ballons there!) no that doesn’t help, people want to come to a party to have fun, to enjoy themselves. It should be the same with your Radio Ad.

Don’t focus on features, sell the results of what you have been able to produce or how you have created immense value for your customers.

Once you have sent a great invitation to the party with the initial part of your Radio Spot, it’s time to tell them where they have to go and who they need to RSVP. This is a Call to Action; it puts the ball into your audiences court. You want your audience to commit to something to prove they are serious about your offer. These can be emailed out in forms, direct numbers to call, a location to attend and so much more.
