Tomas and Per-Erik give a lecture on sounds and emotions during Media Day 2017 in Helsingborg.
We’ve been producing high-quality radio advertising since 1993. Simply as long as there has been radio advertising in Sweden. We love what we do !
This means that you are in safe hands , whether you need a local ad for an independent car repair business, or a nationwide campaign for a multinational company.
Whether you call it jingle, radio spot, audio or radio advertising, we know how to deliver.
This is how it works:
You contact us and tell us what you need. We discuss the scope of the project, either by phone or in a face-to-face meeting .
We suggest concept ideas and present a cost proposal. Once you approve the concept and budget, we start producing. We then write the final script, produce music, if necessary, and find the right actor, book the recording and get started. You choose whether you want to participate in the recording or not, and you can participate either on site or remotely. We present the finished material to you and you provide feedback.
Any corrections are made prior to final approval and then we send the material to the radio station(s) to broadcast the campaign.
Normally, a radio advertising spot takes at least one to two weeks to produce, but this varies, of course, depending on the scope and nature of individual projects.
Some tips for producing really good profiling radio advertising:
1. Use emotion rather than too much information
Sound is extremely effective at conveying emotions, but less good at conveying a lot of information. Preferably, convey only one message per spot and let it take time. Skip addresses, unnecessary phone numbers, and "corporate BS". Concentrate, instead, on “touching” the listener. The emotional centre of the brain is the part of the brain that makes all decisions.
2. Tone of voice
The choice of actors and voice-overs is of course extremely important in order to convey messages effectively. With the right casting, direction and a good basic idea, you have all the prerequisites for finding the right tone. Speaking of voices, over the years we have accumulated more than 500 actors of different ages, dialects and languages.
3. Theatre of the mind
Use the large brush to paint images in people's minds: a summer meadow, a thunderstorm, or the feeling of being in New York’s Central Park is entirely possible on radio. Your only limit is your imagination .
4. Music and sound – a shortcut to the emotional centres of the brain
Music is fantastic. It can completely change your mood at any moment. We know how important the right music is, and we can help you choose the right tune or compose new material for your company and create your unique audio profile u. Over the years, we’ve done this for a large number of clients, including Blåkläder, Statoil, Dominos Pizza and the Pawn Bank.
5. Strategic focus
Don't forget your overall communication strategy when producing a radio campaign! Of course, we have great experience of narrowing ideas with advertising agencies in order to best adapt campaigns to the radio medium.
