Commercial radio ad revenues have continued to increase year-on-year in recent times as advertisers continue to confidently invest in the medium to deliver a high engagement level for their brands.

In fact, 95% of all Australians tune in to radio to stay informed and be entertained each week, on average spending 12 hours and 53 minutes with their favourite station(s). The popularity of radio means it is still one of the most spontaneous, human, accessible, personalised and trusted mediums.

The engaging and social nature of radio allows brands to build powerful connections and engage with audiences whilst also stimulating digital activity through websites, social media, apps and podcasts. With a broad range of networks, stations and programs to choose from, advertisers can specifically target audiences based on their demographics and purchase intentions.

Generally, radio advertising is more affordable than other traditional mediums such as television or print. Smaller businesses with more modest marketing budgets can still use radio to effectively reach their target audience without breaking the bank.

Advertising on radio can play a significant role as a key driver when it comes to amplifying the performance of other media within a marketing mix. Radio plays the perfect supporting role to compliment other traditional media platforms such as television, out of home, and print, whilst digital display, video, social media, and paid search can all substantially benefit in partnership with a tailored radio campaign.
