Be Heard: The #1 Job Of Every Commercial On Philadelphia Radio

Jan 10, 2020 8:19:37 AM / by Larry Julius

The number one job of a radio commercial is  not  to sell products for the sponsoring Delaware Valley small business owner. 

The number one job is not to build store traffic or to create top of mind of awareness.

The number one job of a radio commercial is not to build brand or deliver ROI.

The number one job of every commercial on Philadelphia radio is to be heard. Period. When a commercial is heard, then all the rest will follow. But being heard is not easy.
