    Why advertise on radio?

    Commercial radio is an effective way of allowing enterprises to build business locally. There are numerous reasons why it works so well, and some of the biggest points are listed below:

    1. Radio targets listeners when its relevant to them

    Radio can work in real-time with listeners promoting content at specific times of the day, which best suits the listeners needs. For example, a car dealership may wish to target people listening on their journey home from work, whilst their in their current vehicle.

    2. Low ad avoidance

    Research indicates only cinema advertising offers lower ad avoidance. Listeners are less likely to ignore your advertising message. This is contrary to the way they might avoid printed advertorial or fast-forwarding through commercials on recorded TV content.

    3. Reach the right local audience

    Here at Star Radio we target Cambridge and Ely and immediately surrounding towns and villages - so you're not wasting your campaign budget reaching an audience in Peterborough, Bedford or Norwich.

    4. Flexible and Fast

    Radio is a fast and flexible medium to be able to advertise on. Business moves at a high-speed pace and radio is able to keep up with updated business messages and promotions. Radio production is also relatively cheap meaning your message can be changed when needed.

    5. Trust and Friendship

    Radio is a medium which forges a strong relationship with the listener. Our team of presenters live the same lives as our listeners producing local, relatable content around the clock. Many people use the radio for company and friendship. This builds listener loyalty and helps to form purchasing decisions.

    6. Radio and Web work together

    Using radio alongside a web campaign can boost your business activity and digital presence. At any one time up to 1/5th of internet users are listening to the radio. That means they could be a click away from your brand. Use the two mediums together to build brand awareness and customer recall.

    7. We're not just a radio station

    Star Radio broadcasts on FM to Cambridge, Saffron Walden, Ely and the Fens, smart speaker, UK standard RadioPlayer and our own set of Apple, Android and Kindle mobile apps and now DAB Digital Radio in Cambridge.
