To be more successful
with Radio Advertising
You must find WHAT your motor audience is listening to and WHEN you can reach them...

Most radio listening takes place in motor vehicles, especially listening that "hears" the advertisers' commercials. So, if an advertiser wants a better chance of getting results from radio advertising, it is imperative they know when and on what station to place their ad schedules.

The FIRST STEP toward getting "AWESOME" radio advertising results is securing this information about your market's motor audience.


You get it from Audiscan because:

  • Audiscan Reports are based on ACTUAL scientific electronic frequency READINGS.

  • SAMPLINGS ARE VERY LARGE, so all tabulated results are very definitive.

  • Audiscan Report tabulations ARE NOT ESTIMATES.

  • They ARE ELECTRONIC FACTS. They are not based on listener "recall"....and they are not based on what some listener "thought" they were listening to.

  • With Audiscan, there is NEVER ANY "WEIGHTING"... No allowances need be made to be fair and balanced.

  • Reports are PUBLISHED PROMPTLY after scans are completed (2 to 3 weeks in most cases). In many markets, because formats are changing so often, audience figures can change very quickly. Audiscan Reports are delivered while the RESULTS ARE FRESH AND EFFECTIVE!

  • Reports are CLEAR, UNCOMPLICATED, EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND USE in placing radio advertising schedules for maximum effect.

RADIO ADVERTISING directed toward motor listeners works because:

Automotive listeners are CAPTIVE and RECEPTIVE.

Automotive listeners are always only 24 to 36 inches from a radio speaker.

There is NO COMPETITION in a motor vehicle like the listener would experience at home, such as television, kids, and various distractions.

In all markets that Audiscan surveys, AT LEAST 50% or more of vehicles scanned have the radio on.

Automotive listeners are exposed to radio programming through "foreground" imaging which basically means "up close and personal".

The Last Chance

In addition to consistently influencing the listener on various matters and decisions, CAR RADIO ADVERTISING gives the advertiser the absolute LAST CHANCE to reach the customers before they make a purchase or a business decision. Even LAST MINUTE political voting decisions can be effectively influenced by car radio advertising. In today's political scene, last-minute vote changes (if only a few votes) can be decisive in any type of election.

A videotape produced about Audiscan by a Texas radio station states:

"Radio advertising can bring a driver to an advertiser's door even as the driver may be heading to a competitor's store. It lets the advertiser get in the LAST WORD."

How do I know if Audiscan is right for my Business?

For businesses that require intricate demographic details for placement of their radio advertising schedules, Audiscan is NOT the survey for you. There are some of the finest and most complete diary and telephone surveys in the world available to you, and they should be very beneficial.

However, if your business is automobile related or if your customers come to you by automobile, then Audiscan has all the details you need to effectively place your radio advertising schedules. We at Audiscan HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE that we have no equal when it comes to giving you information that will get you results for your radio advertising dollar!

It is the purpose of this web site to educate and indoctrinate those who are not familiar with a report such as Audiscan. Over the years, several radio station subscribers have been so "sold" on Audiscan that they have produced sales brochures, pamphlets, videotapes, and other presentation materials about its impact on their customers. In fact, it is at their urging that this informational web site was created. One such radio station that has subscribed to the Audiscan Report for several years also sponsored a special Audiscan Christmas Report and then produced a brochure from which the following description of Audiscan was copied. We at Audiscan feel it is vey descriptive of our service and feel it will be helpful to those who are just now finding Audiscan...
