A recent study published in trade magazine QSR News proves radio ads drive increased store traffic across a wide variety of store categories.
The study analyzed 1.5 million radio spot plays for 10 brands in the top 100 US markets, collecting listener data from April through June 2018. Utilizing the Dial Report’s proprietary radio attribution capabilities, researchers compared consumer actions of listeners exposed to radio campaigns against those not exposed to evaluate the impact of radio advertising on average retail store visits.
The study found Radio drove an average +22% increase in-store traffic for retailers:
“We’re delighted to partner with TagStation’s Dial Report team to once again demonstrate radio’s effectiveness to influence consumer decisions and purchase behavior,” said Erica Farber, President and CEO of the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB). “Continued conclusive attribution and critical data provide broadcasters, advertisers and brands greater clarity on assessing ROI for radio campaigns.”
“We are excited to share these study findings that further confirm how important broadcast radio is to the entire retail industry,” says Paul Brenner, President of TagStation, LLC. “Dial Report’s unique attribution capabilities can help broadcasters better enable advertisers, to analyze specific consumer behaviors, like foot traffic, in order to identify trends and optimize campaigns.”
