Why would a Digital Marketing Guy get excited about Google Audio? Radio Advertising is an effective complement to Online Advertising
Tracking the conversation started by Radio Advertising… to the Web!
Google Audio provides dealers with the ability to make real-time changes, allowing dealers to better manage ad campaigns
Google Audio provides dealers with more control over their use of radio advertising
Google Audio provides dealers with true integrated marketing capabilities…
Buying Radio Spots in Phoenix, we ran 4,961 Thirty Second commercials at a total cost of $10,635 resulting in a cost per spot at less than $2.15 each… The equivalent average cost per spot buying the same Dayparts and reach through local radio media salespeople would have been over $50 per spot… How can that be?
When we check on Albuquerque for Rich Ford, we find 24 Radio Stations have provided Google with direct access to On-Air inventory…
What would be available to Rich Ford if we wanted all the inventory we could get, running Radio Spots 24 hours a day, bidding on a $5.00 CPM listeners basis?
Running Radio Spots 24 hours a day, we would pay $1.59 on a CPM basis to get 8,042 30 second spots on 24 radio stations at atotal campaign cost of $10,611… This comes out to a net cost of$1.32 per Spot
What if we Ran Rich Ford’s Radio Spots ONLY DURING PRIME DRIVE TIME, Monday through Friday, paying on a CPM basis… On 24 Albuquerque & Santa Fe Radio Stations? How Many Prime Drive Time Spots can we get, and at What Cost per Spot on Local Radio Stations?
Running Radio Spots ONLY DURING PRIME DRIVE TIME, on 23 Radio Stations in Albuquerque/Santa Fe market, paying on a $2.13 CPM basis, we estimate that the dealer would get 3,335 spots at a $8,932 total campaign cost, which comes out to $2.68 Average Cost per Prime Drive Time Spot… Dealer currently pays over $85 for equivalent spots through historical sales channels
Normally we would check the box “I already have an ad” and then upload our 30 second radio spots to be pushed directly into each stations rotation software and then broadcast… But, when I first prepared these slides, I still needed to get the spots (and permission) from Dennis Snyder at Rich Ford!
We saved the campaign and went to Dennis Snyder to supply the 30 second spots he wanted to run so we can upload them into the ADP Digital Advertising system and pull the trigger…
Next, we enter a short description, then save the Newspaper campaign...
Just like the Radio campaign, we get a summary description and links to edit the Newspaper campaign later on...
In less than an hour, we set up Site Targeted Online Display Ads, Search Engine Ads, Radio Ad Campaigns on 24 stations, and a Saturday/Sunday Full Page Newspaper Ad Campaign…
In Dallas, TX we used Digital Advertising to drive traffic to CBS’s DFWvehicles.com to supplement their TV, Radio and Outdoor advertising campaigns that utilized their own media channels… Exceptionally high click-through rates reflect the synergies achieved with Integrated Marketing campaigns that utilize on and offline media

Why do we ask dealers to register at SEMDealer.com before we recommend any digital advertising? The ADP Digital Advertising Program is designed to leverage each dealer’s existing search engine rankings by researching the “organic” or natural listings that dealers do not pay for, before buying any paid search listings. By first testing the most important search words and phrases, the relevant keywords used by local in-market car buyers that already show the dealer prominently listed, can be excluded from those that the dealer pays for. This strategy allows ADP to bid on only the most effective keywords that the dealer is not already getting for free, then shift the remaining budget to display advertising on web sites used by the dealer’s local customers. Eliminating the practice of bidding on the wrong keywords or Geotargeting outside the dealer’s effective market area allows ADP to provide dealers with a blended online advertising approach that maximizes the showroom, phone and dealer website sales opportunities generated.
