Radio Ads

Great radio advertising is, perhaps, the most difficult of all. Results hinge on a 30 second burst of sound. With sound alone, an entire story must be told and the urge to buy created.


We call this the “S=Urge Principle.” While this key principle equally applies to television spots— with micro-stories that must motivate, sell, entertain in seconds—radio is even more difficult to use effectively. Without visuals, with sound alone, the entire message must be conveyed. There is no logo the anchore brand awareness. There is nothing sexy on screen. Just a story to be told.

Persona are the masters of the S-Urge story, in all media. As always, the master story tellers get the better results. Great creative alone, especially in radio, is not enough. A story, Persona-style, is the best assurance of results. Play the sample spots below to find out why. Or give us a call or email to find out how we can help you get the results you need in radio.

With the right approach—the Persona approach—all problems can be turned into manageable, cost-effective opportunities.
