Looking for a top radio advertising agency in Chicago?
Radio advertising is the process of creating and broadcasting an ad for radio. Radio ad pricing depends on the number of listeners. A typical price range is between $200 and $5,000 per week. Other factors that influence cost include the length of the ad, when it broadcasts, and the channel where it airs.
There are three types of radio advertising: live read, sponsored, or produced spots. Live read is when an ad is read in real-time by the radio host. Sponsored is when an advertisement is inserted into typical radio programming, such as after a weather or traffic update. Produced radio ad spots are more formal and usually include voice actors, a jingle, and a planned dialogue. A radio advertising agency will help you not only identify the best type of radio ad but also develop the concept and produce the ad.
