The Power fo Radio Political Advertising
As we approach the 2024 election, connecting with voters is essential. And in a world filled with noise and distractions, getting your campaign message heard is no easy task. Radio advertising with Zimmer Marketing is one of the most affordable and effective ways of reaching voters in Joplin, MO, and the Four States. With ownership of six radio stations across the Four States and a comprehensive marketing approach, we offer a unique avenue to effectively message voters.

Influence Voters in Joplin and the Four States with Radio

Radio remains a formidable medium in 2024. Zimmer Marketing stations reach over 400,000 people in the Four States each month, delivering campaign messages to voters at a fraction of the cost of TV advertising. Our six stations also offer digital streaming through our apps and online, extending reach even further. A recent study showed that terrestrial radio reaches 82% of swing voters!

Now is the opportune moment for your candidate to leverage radio's broad audience, especially as TV channels experience declining viewership. Radio advertising ensures widespread coverage and allows for the diversification of your campaign strategy without inflating your political ad spending.

Tips for Local Political Radio Ads

For any campaign, maximizing the impact of all paid media is paramount. Fortunately, there are some practical and accessible ways to do this with local radio. The first way is to create intensely local radio ads. That means you should be speaking to the specific listeners of a given station, which can be achieved with minor details like calling out the station your campaign is running ads on by name. 

A second detail worth noting is that radio is a notoriously more personal form of media, and listeners feel connected with the personalities they hear on the radio. A powerful way for your campaign to influence voters is to have your candidate make a personal appeal in their voice, eschewing over-reliance on professional voiceovers.
