WESR Coastal Country Eastern Shore Radio Advertising

Why advertise?

Many successful businesses do NOT advertise. The only reason to incur the risk is because you might do more business by advertising than you would without. When ads work, customers that would otherwise do business with competitors do business with you.

The approximately one -third of businesses that advertise consistently find doing so is profitable for three reasons: *

  • Advertising replaces the 20% to 25% of clients who are lost annually to attrition.
  • Advertising reaches people as they make buying decisions. Each and every day people make decisions to buy products and services.
  • Advertising builds Top of Mind Awareness (the ability to name a specific business) which turns into market share. For example, approximately six of ten people when asked to name a high -end mattress name Sealy. Sealy has approximately a 60% share of the high end mattress market.

Today, the average consumer is exposed to more than 2,500 advertising impressions a day ranging from radio ads and billboards to milk cartons and magazines. Your competition may be inviting potential customers to do business with them instead of you.
