Says chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australia, Joan Warner: "The 'Radio Connects' website provides a great source of successful case studies, showing optimum use of radio in actual advertising campaigns.

The case studies include a range of advertising campaigns across the automotive, banking and finance, charity, entertainment, food and beverage and retail sectors. They provide detailed information on target markets, campaign objectives and results, and also provide insights about how the campaign worked.

Case studies across both metropolitan and regional markets are included with companies across various sectors like McDonalds, Harvey Norman and Carlton Draught.

"Advertiser and media agencies have been asking for this information and the industry has delivered what I believe is a great initiative for all those thinking about advertising on radio," Ms Warner said.

"In this highly competitive market, radio must fight hard for every advertising dollar. This case study website, coupled with the power of radio to cut through, and its cost effectiveness, will all assist in delivering the message that radio should be an integral part of any advertising mix.

"It also highlights the diversity of radio advertising - and demonstrates how it can be used in a variety of ways including across platforms, in integrated campaigns with other media, through the use of  on-air competitions, traditional spots, and prize giveaways."

Ms Warner said the industry would add to the website regularly building up a comprehensive bank of Australian case studies to highlight the influence and impact of radio alone and in partnership with digital and other media.
