Glenn Beck is amongst the top rated radio/television personalities in the country today and is also the author of six NY Times best selling books. Whether you are a fan or foe when it comes to the man’s political leanings, if you are an advertiser his show represents an enormous market for your product.
Radio shows often engender a sort of fanatical devotion among their listeners. There are many reasons for this intense connection (see our earlier post), but the reasons are not the important part when it comes your advertising decisions. The important part is that this devotion translates into a receptive mood in listeners that is the most opportune time for your message to be heard.
Beck’s followers, to use an example, are statistically regular listeners who spend a significant amount of time each week (often each day) listening to his show. Because of the intense connection that they forge with the show, and by default with Beck himself, they are receptive to messages that they associate with the show. Radio Advertising on Beck…WORKS.
