Heart is part of Global, the media and entertainment group, so we know a thing or two about what blasts through your speakers. We have seven huge radio brands under our belt including Heart, LBC, Smooth, Capital and Classic FM. So, if you’re going to trust anyone with your advertising budget, we're a good choice!

Cost of advertising:

There are many different ways we can turn our listeners into your customers but you may be thinking it will cost too much. However, our team has experience of working with companies of all sizes and we’ve got ideas for radio adverts, websites, SMS campaigns for mobile and social media solutions. We’re currently working with shops in Southend, restaurants in Writtle, car dealers in Chelmsford - so why couldn’t it be you next? Our sales team will be happy to chat you through what could work for you. Simply fill out the form below and we will arrange an initial meeting.

Advertising on Radio:

The adverts you hear everyday are what we call commercial airtime. This type of advertising is proven to be extremely successful for businesses in many different sectors. Once we know what you want to achieve, we can create a bespoke campaign that will deliver results. Our planning systems know who listens, when, so we can ensure your message reaches the right people. Our experienced writers will even write your commercial for you so you can rest assured it will stand out on air.

Advertising on Mobile:

Radio has always been a highly portable medium following you throughout your day. We have a range of Apps for tablets and smart phones and we’d be happy to show you the unique opportunities to reach our listeners wherever they are and whatever platform they are listening on. Both Heart TV and Capital TV are streamed live through our Heart and Capital Apps. 

Advertising on Online:

Radio has a fantastic relationship with online with a growing percentage of our listening hours now coming from the internet. Every one of our shows, events and competitions directs listeners online to find out more and take part. We offer a whole range of advertising solutions from a banner and button to a whole home-page take-over. 

Sponsorship and Promotions:

When you listen out for the travel news or the weather you will probably have noticed someone sponsors it. Sponsorships are regular mentions that are attached to features. They build brand awareness over a longer period of time and can be linked to online activity too. If you’ve ever phoned Heart or entered a competition online, it’s likely that you were getting involved with one of our promotions. Promotions build excitement about your business quickly and interaction with the listeners brings them even closer to your product. Promotions remove your business from the ad break and mention you in the thick of it.
