Love, flowers, romance…and marketing results. Ok, probably not what your partner cares about, but if you’re in advertising you might be interested to know that Valentine’s Day radio advertising could be one of your best marketing decisions in 2019.

Valentine’s Day means romance. If you have a product or service that suits a romantic mood, merging one of the most lovey dovey days of the year with a radio advertising can be a critical and profitable campaign.

Whether you’re selling chocolates, flowers or trying to increase walk-in and website traffic, radio advertising, especially small businesses will experience increased traffic and revenue. Your promoting and positioning your business ahead of your competitors with products and services as great gift ideas for that special someone in your customers’ life.

Have a Strong Call to Action

Most radio stations have special deals in place in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day. In order to get your ad on air to make the most of the two-week lead-up to Valentine’s Day, you need to take action quickly.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to be a magnet for the increased consumer spending that occurs around Valentine’s Day when millions of shoppers are seeking that special gift.

I recommend a promotion campaign based upon a strong call to action - for example "phone us now to secure a room with a view". This is not the time for a branding campaign, you need a live read or a tightly written commercial that asks your target audience to take immediate action.
