What media has the majority of audience prior to shopping?

A new study performed by Arbitron and MBI Touchpoints confirmed that radio is still a valid media in reaching people prior to peak shopping hours.

According to MediaPost, the study, “Where Radio Fits: Radio’s Strengths in the Media Landscape” was conducted from October 2010 – March 2011 and August 2011 – January 2012 and observed the media consumption of adults 18-64.

Findings show that broadcast radio reaches 31% of adults 25-54 about an hour prior to peak shopping. This peak period is from about 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. in the afternoon. This percentage means that radio has the largest reach of the pre-shopping audience among all media platforms.

This does make sense because a lot of people own cars with radios and will drive his or herself to go shopping. Therefore, it is more likely that the last media a consumer views/reads/hears is radio between leaving a car and going in to shop.
