Advertising in general expresses the positioning. Powerful advertising is the resultof powerful planning. Great ideas and great ad campaigns don’t just pop out from nowhere, they are built on the key communication points that motivate sales.Radio is entirely a medium of sound, which evokes smells, sensations and visualimages which brings the listeners imaginations into play.Radio advertising is one of the tools of advertising which is effectively used for communication and positioning.
