Q:        Why Advertise?

A:        Highly successful businesses consistently advertise for three reasons:

    • Advertising replaces the 20%-30% of customers lost annually           
    • Advertising reaches people as they make buying decisions today         
    • Advertising builds “Top Of Mind Awareness”-they think of you first           
    • Your competition is inviting potential customers do business with them now            


Q:        Why Advertise On Radio?

A:        Radio reaches “now” buyers plus “future” buyers

    • Radio is intrusive:  at home, work, car - can listen to radio everywhere            
    • Radio is affordable 7 days per week. Potential customers are deciding to buy your products & services daily. (Not just when you're open!)                  
    • Future customers represent 90%-98% of people in the market tomorrow            
    • No production charges
