Radio Reels In Whopping ROI Retail Win.

Radio delivered a stunning 17-to-1 return on investment for four department store chains during the third quarter of 2014, according to new research from Nielsen. The new hot-off-the-presses study, previewed Wednesday at the NAB-RAB Radio Show in Atlanta, also showed the radio campaigns drove a 10% increase in overall store sales for the four retail brands.

The study, which compared consumer spending at the department stores in Q3 of 2014 to the same period in 2013, showed exposure to the radio campaigns drove a 10% lift in overall store sales with radio bringing in more shoppers who also spent more often each time they shopped.
