Radio UK - Basic


So you think that radio is yesterday’s marketing tool? With mp3 players, YouTube, and podcasts, is radio just that tree falling in the forest . . . the one no one hears?

Think again. According to UK-based Radio Joint Audience Research Limited’s (RAJAR), 90% of the population tune in to radio every week, with each listener consuming an average of 21.3 hours—almost a full day’s worth!* Whether at work or home, via cell phone or satellite broadcast in your car—radio is available everywhere. Plus, the huge variety of broadcasts allows for the targeting of specific audiences with specific interests.

Now AuthorHouse can help you harness the power of the airwaves and introduce your self-published book to radio listeners (and potential book buyers) through Radio UK - Basic. Your 30-second commercial will be broadcast on a station of your choice (from a provided list) for a week. In addition, you’ll be featured in BookMad, Author Solutions’ magazine highlighting new self-published books and authors.
