Market Studies

Providing The Strategic Market Intelligence You Need

Every market, every radio station, every audio business and every situation is different.  That’s why every Market Study we do is different too.

When you want to know more about:

  • Your station(s) and competitors
  • Listener priorities, attitudes, values
  • Station drivers, personalities, slogans & images
  • Morning show features, benchmarks & presenters
  • And much more…

Music Mapping

Finding The Optimum Music Recipe

On a typical music radio station, music accounts for 70- 80% of the output.  It is therefore critical that the music policy is optimised.

If you are planning a new station launch, a Music Mapping study will tell you exactly where the biggest gap in the market is.

If you're managing a portfolio, the music market has moved, you want to reposition your station, you want to identify the format boundaries, or you just want to optimise the output, a Music Mapping Study will tell you exactly what the optimum music recipe is for your radio station.

Song Testing

Maximise Your Audience And Increase Listener Satisfaction

Library tests are used to test a large number of individual songs and to find the familiarity, passion and burn for each one.

We also use Library Test data to design and build the optimum music architecture.

Library tests form an essential regular activity for almost all successful music radio stations whatever the format.

We offer a choice of methodologies depending on both budget and local market conditions.

Content Testing

Test Individual Pieces Of Content, Benchmarks & Features

Content testing with Ultimate Aircheck allows you to test individual pieces of content, benchmarks & features second-by-second.

You can get the precise response from fans, occasional listeners and non-listeners, mapped to the content as they hear it.  Of course the content can be your own radio station’s … or your competitor’s!

With Ultimate Aircheck you can discover the positive and negative triggers that stimulate the listeners, find any tune-out points and identify the elements that increase listener enjoyment.
