The number one job of every commercial on Augusta radio is not to sell products.

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 an Augusta radio station is to be heard. Period. When a commercial is heard, then all the rest will follow. But being heard is not easy.

Professional advice is always welcome. Especially when you are a Central Savannah River Area business owner investing your own money trying to capture a larger share of the $8.6-billion local consumers will spend this year.
