"We’ve been advertising on Southend radio for over a year now and we are very pleased so far. Gary at Southend Radio made it very simple for me, he helped me along, we worked the advert out between ourselves and this is why we’ve been advertising for so long. Gary is always phoning up asking how I’m doing, and I’m happy with the service." – Bob Stevens
''Having decided to run a radio competition this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our business being open, we contacted all the local radio stations to see if they could help. We found Gary at Southend Radio to be by far the most helpful and after our first meeting we decided to choose Southend Radio to run our competition.
The whole process went extremely smoothly with Gary, holding our hand every step of the way and he also managed to get us some extra airtime for free which was a bonus! The competition itself went very well and we were surprised by just how much effort the presenters put in to promoting both the business as well as the competition itself.
The response we have had since running the radio competition has simply been amazing. We have had our busiest year to date and despite the current economic climate we are growing at a phenomenal rate.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Southend Radio to anyone looking to use radio as part of their marketing campaign and for us it worked out to be an excellent choice and one we would make again.'' - Nick Orr.

I am very happy with the response I have received to date, and would have no hesitation in recommending advertising your business with them." – Colin Parker, Owner.
"We've been using Southend Radio to advertise our business for the last year, and with real success, we've probably had a 30% increase in people coming in the restaurant, mentioning the radio and loving the jingle - we'll never look back.
Susan, our Account Manager has really looked after us and knew what we were looking for. So if you're considering advertising your business, I would highly recommend Southend Radio - it's worked for us, and I'm sure it will work for you." - Andy.

"We were approached by Connect FM and we did find it really, really helpful. Press is so limited now obviously with the paper only being one day a week which is no good. It definitely improved our trade." - Pat Gibson, Owner.
''Just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how much we appreciate what Connect FM have done for us. The radio advert has had a great effect on our company, it's brought in much more local business so we don't just rely on our online website.
Thank you for guiding us through the beginning, we have never advertised on the radio before so your help was greatly appreciated. Hearing the advert on the radio for the first time was great, it's good to have a catchy tune to our name.'' - All the staff at Jaycee Trophies.
''We've been advertising with Connect FM for around about 9 years now. The reason we advertise with Connect FM is because you can get quicker coverage of your product.
On our business, since we've been advertising, we have taken around about £150,000 of orders extra a year."

''I am writing to you today to tell you how pleased I am with the great service your radio station has provided for me over ten years but also your representative Christina Skeer who always makes a point of calling in to see me when she is in the Corby area.
Christina has always gone out of her way to provide me with tailor made advertising package which fits in with my erratic cashflow through the business, between us we develop new novel idea's to promote the business, if ever I have any concerns or difficulties with advertising she is always at hand to help.
I thought that I would put this in writing to you because I think you need to know how dedicated your staff are and in particular Christina.'' - Keith Norris
We are truly surprised and pleased that the advert on Connect FM has worked so well." - Chris Holdsworth
The Herts Fencing Company
''We opened our new business in May 2012, We hadn’t thought about advertising on the radio as we had always assumed it would be to costly, Shortly after opening Raj came in to see us, after going through the packages we were pleasantly surprised, it was within our budget. After going through the facts and figures with Raj we decided to go ahead with the advert and haven’t looked back.
We have had a fantastic response from our advert many of our customers found out about us through Heart Radio, and the ones that already new we were here have also mentioned hearing the advert on Heart, even friends and family are commenting on the advert and people they know are talking about it to them.
As a brand new business we needed to do something that would reach out to as many potential customers as possible. The results were instant we had customers from the advert within the first few days of it being on air. This has had a huge impact on our company and I would highly recommend advertising on Heart Radio.'' - Ms Jamie Crane.
"We launched a 13 year week Heart Radio campaign from June and we have seen a 50-75% rise in local orders on our website. Better weather has certainly contributed to higher footfall, but the radio advert has been mentioned by lots of our customers directly and indirectly.
I was impressed by the professional and creative approach by Raj and the team and found dealing with heart very straightforward and honest. I would recommend new advertiser to choose a minimum 2-3 month term to get the best effect from the campaign and to choose as creative an advert as possible. Overall very pleased with the campaign and the team behind it!" – Tim Bennett, Managing Director.
"We’ve ran three commercials - for Christmas, a generic commercial and a January offer commercial.
The big thing we noticed was the telephone booking straight away.
Within 2 or 3 weeks of the adverts going out, we were really getting inundated with telephone bookings. Kids also mimic the super horse noise they hear on the radio, it’s been good!" – Edward Hilton, Manager.
"Laserforce has always found Connect FM to a very direct & cost effective way of attracting new customers and very importantly reminding our existing customers to come a visit us.
We have been advertising though Connect FM regularly over the past 10 years and through Connect we have been able to create some great sounding adverts which convey the excitement and energy of our Laserforce Games. We have definitely noticed a difference in attendance between the periods we are on the radio and when we are not and when we opened our new Laserforce arena last year in Northampton, we quickly extended our radio advertising from Peterborough to the Northampton area through Connect FM."
