Radio Advertising
Advertisements come in many different shapes and sizes. They are seen on television as a person is watching their favorite show, on billboards as you drive into a major city, and online through social media and other websites. Another form of advertising that may not be thought about as much but is still a good way to promote would be through the radio. The radio is something that a variety of people use every day and they normally don’t have the option of skipping past the advertisements like they can on televisions. Also, there are many people that travel long distances in a car. Either for work, vacation, or just to visit old friends. These people will usually listen to the radio for their car ride and will listen through the ads as they go. For these reasons, radio ads are a good thing to consider.
Radio Stations near Me
I live in Castle Rock, Colorado. It is about 15 minutes away from the outskirts/suburbs of Denver, Colorado. For this reason, the only radio station that is actually in Castle Rock is a Spanish radio station. For this reason, I went ahead and looked at radio stations that were within listening range of Castle Rock instead. According to radio-locator (2015), there are 59 stations that are close enough to be listened to in my city. Most of the actual stations are located in Denver and Pueblo with a few random ones in each of the surrounding cities. The style of music ranges vastly. The formats for these different radio stations are Classical, Jazz, Public Radio, Christian Contemporary, Spanish, Adult Contemporary, Alternative, Rock, Religious, Country, Top-40, Regional Mexican, Adult Album Alternative, Classic Rock, Hot AC, Religious, Sports, Classic Hits, Rock, Hip Hop, New/Talk, Talk, Nostalgia, Oldies, Adult Hits, Gospel Music, and Children’s (radio-locator, 2015).

Xm Radio

...XM’s value proposition to the market is to deliver diverse high quality digital radio content to consumers across various demographics and nationwide via a complex satellite and terrestrial network. A key advantage with XM’s satellite radio over AM/FM radio is the near-ubiquitous radio coverage that significantly strengthens broadcast signals outside the traditional broadcast area. Given the vast and high-growth car radio market and strong home segment demand, XM should target both submarkets. When pricing the radio and subscription fee XM needs to evaluate the potential demand for the product/service based on various revenue and cost assumptions, cost/benefit of advertising vs. not advertising, and the profit implications for various scenarios. Based on expected consumer response and an analysis of the above factors over a five yr. customer lifetime, we determined that XM should start offering a $100 radio with ad-free service of $10/mo. (SIRIUS price) and with-ad service of $5/mo to attract customers ($9.2 bn profit). As XM builds its customer base over time, it can raise the product/service prices to generate higher profits. By doing so XM could reach out to potential consumers who desire satellite radio but are not willing to pay the high $10/mo. ad-free fee. Furthermore, XM could differentiate itself from SIRIUS and retain customers by offering exclusive programming. The benefits of including advertisements are expected to outweigh the costs and can provide...

He kisses the bottle and excitedly says, “Yesss.” Then, he gazes around his apartment and realizes that it is a mess. “No!” he exclaims in a worried tone of voice.

...role in our society. It is everywhere wherever you go like on the street, Radio, TV…. Sometime it can be helpful, however, most of them are harmful to the people. In this essay, I will analyze some of the problems of advertisement. Problem one: distraction from important information. One reason that TV advertisements are bad for your brain is that their subject matter is almost always trivial and unimportant. On rare occasions, and add might actually contain useful information, but generally it is merely a distraction. Advertising is bad if it makes you focus on something trivial when you could be focusing on something important. The cynical advertising companies that turnout low end advertising are aware of the problem, and do everything in their power to make trivial things seem important to viewers. It should be comical when we see actors in a TV commercial acting like it matters what kind of toothpaste someone uses, but at some level your mind accepts such impossibilities as legitimate when they're presented frequently. At a minimum, such banal advertising consumes our conscious minds focus when it could be focusing on something that matters. Problem two: appeal to your mind's basest motives. Cynical advertising companies use sexually provocative ads to sell everything from lingerie to hamburgers. These ads are bad for your brain because they appeal to your minds least worthy motives. Advertising is bad when it lowers people's moral sensitivities or treats people like......

IT is a driving factor in the process of globalization. Technology is now the forefront of the modern world creating new jobs, innovations, and networking sites to allow individuals to connect globally. It’s much easier to communicate with others than it was just decade ago. This has improved our lives in many ways by allowing us to become more interconnected and knowledgeable about the world. In nearly every corner of the world, we cannot walk down the street without seeing someone talking, texting, or surfing the Internet on their cell phones, laptops or tablet Pc’s. Ten years ago, the only way for people to communicate with each other was meeting face to face or writing letters. However, people living or working in different countries might be unable to meet each other. It cost more money for travelling and sending letters if people lived too far from others. Now days, we are happy with the advance of new technologies such as email, cellular phones, television, etc.......

Advertising in Radio

...product or service, advertising is the best way to achieve that goal. These announcements come in many forms and styles. When comparing the typical varieties of promotion mediums which are television, newspapers, and magazines, radio ads are much more affordable than many people realize. While broadcasting in radio, a company is able to reach its target audience at the lowest cost. Being that the most affordable form of advertising means of publicity is through the airwaves, it is frequently the preferred kind of mainstream marketing medium of many businesses new and old. Although radio is the cheapest and most direct form of placing bulletins, there is a process in which companies must follow in order to successfully reach their target audience. Once a company has decided to use radio as the medium of choice for their advertisements, the company needs to first decide who their target audience is going to be by looking into factors such as gender, age, where they live, interests, hobbies and even personality traits. It may come to sound a bit stereotypical but many business owners instinctively know what type of music their target audience listens to. If a company is trying to market a new type of energy drink, they should invest their time in advertising on radio stations that would play rock or hip-hop music, rather than a station that plays classical music. As soon as an establishment has identified their demographic, the next step would be to consult with radio stations......

...RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION Introduction RFID is a technology which enables detecting and identifying objects using electromagnetic radio waves. This is processed through exchange of information between a reader and a tag being attached to the object that includes the data associated with the object. This can be used to detect and classify vehicles, animals, patients, shipment goods and airline baggage. [1] RFID technology involves two main components, they are transponders which are also known as tags or labels, contain the relevant information about the object and other the interrogators, also known as readers or transceivers, that extract the data from the tags. These tags can be passive or active tags. Passive tags use the energy from the EM radiation of the reader for its processing, where as active tags receive power from an internal battery for its processing and communication with the reader. An integrated electronic circuit is embedded in tags for storage and processing operations and an antenna that transmits and receives the RF signal. [2] Figure : components of RFID Source : The tags used in RFID are enabled with read-write operations, with a large storage capacity. Data can be modified any number of times. Tag and reader act as two way radio communication in which each antenna carries the modulation and demodulation of RF signals, with operation frequency ranges from low frequency to UHF. As......

...Advertising is the act or practice of calling public attention to one’s product, service and need, especially by paid announcements which as of products for sale, in newspaper and internet or on television as well as radio. (, n.d.) Advertising can be disseminated through many methods. An obvious reason for advertising is simply informing people of the existence of products. Consumers might be interested in buying. No one will buy something that they do not know exists. When more people know about a product, more of it will be sold (Berkers, 2014). Today, a company or business when they are doing advertisements will research the target for their product or goods. Next, the company will decide how to manage their advertising. One of the best ways does this in twenty-first century to try to establish viral marketing. Viral marketing, which is also called viral advertising, is an easier way to tell consumers about a company’s product. This means a marketing strategy that focuses on spreading information and opinions about a product or service from person to person, specifically by using unconventional means such as the Internet or e-mail. (, n.d.) For example, advertising information posted on Facebook, if anyone accepts this information then puts like or share it, his or her friends may receive the message and do the same thing. Next if this trend is continuing, the information may reach the result of going viral. This project aims to research how......

...Radio Announcements According to website, “in a single week, Radio reaches more that 228 million Americans; 94% of everyone age 12 and over”. A greater majority of people listens to the radio on their way to and from work as well as during work or on short break where they do not have access to television screens. Radio shows can also be streamed live on mobile devices, which make them portable. A target audience profile is necessary to pinpoint prospective clients. Demographic information (concerned with spot advertising) such as age group, gender, residence, household income, etc. are important for broadcasters; this helps them identify your audience so they can pinpoint what times of day are the best to get your message across. Also to be put into consideration are reach, frequency and cost-per-point. Reach is the number of your prospects that will hear the message; frequency is the average number of times that prospects hear the broadcast while cost per point is the basis to evaluate cost. Radio broadcast are likely to be very fast paced and do not allow room for to present too much information, which could have both a positive and negative effect. The former will allow for a message to be conveyed without bombarding the listener with so much information to the point that they lose interest, while the latter, could do the opposite; not provide enough information. When choosing radio as a means of advertising, advertisers can choose to work directly......

Age of Radio

...The Age of the Radio Radio has always been one of the most powerful media sources available. It goes without saying that it is popular due to the fact that the necessary equipment, radio transmitter and receiver. Radio was the start to worldwide communication. There were many inventors to thank for the radio. In 1860, James Maxwell predicted the existence of radio waves (Bellis). James Maxwell formulated a set of equations, which explained light as one form of electromagnetic radiation and predicted that there should be many other forms, invisible to the human eye. Heinrich Hertz demonstrated that rapid variations of electric current could be projected into space (Bellis). Fortunately, other scientist and engineers saw the radio spectrum not as a curiosity but as a tool for a new kind of communication. Guglielmo Macroni proved the feasibility of radio communication. In 1895, Macroni sent the first radio signal. With further alterations, Macroni found a way for ships to talk to each other using Morse code. The next big step was finding a way to manipulate radio waves so they could carry more than dots and dashes. Switching from pulses to continuous waves provided the key. Reginald Fessenden invented a way to transmit voice by altering the intensity of waves, thus creating AM radio. Reginald Fessenden noticed that by varying wave frequency instead of amplitude, stations could avoid the interference that often corrupted AM transmissions. The result was frequency modulation...
