Gordon Borrell of Borrell Associates has a pretty good idea. And he thinks there's a lot of room for radio to move in on print -- if radio understands where its opportunity really lies.
"Local advertising is undergoing a fascinating evolution," Borrell says. "Less money is being spent on classical-type advertising and more on dynamic marketing and promotions. The marketplace cacophony is so loud that it’s gotten harder and harder to sell spots -- or any other type of advertising, for that matter. What’s emerging is a powerful opportunity for radio to capitalize on what their beleaguered print competitors have discovered. Handled the right way, the Internet becomes not a way to make a few piddly extra bucks, but rather a significant revenue magnifier."
