BIG 92.7 FM with its largest network of 44 stations is not only enabling retailers to reach out to their target audience but also helping traditional advertisers like educational institutes to reach out to the students through various innovative activities. Kota being the hub of education in North India with huge number of coaching centers mushrooming in the city, BIG 92.7 FM is playing a pivotal role in helping the aspiring students identify the institutes which are best for them.
Trends like these clearly prove that the awareness for the effectiveness of radio is not restricted only to the metros but has reached the tier II markets too. The cost effectiveness and penetration of the medium, coupled with the ability to get completely local is what is drawing newer customers to the medium.
Apart from the commercial aspect, BIG FM also organizes talk-shows, workshops etc in order to establish connect between professors and aspiring students. Taking it further, BIG 92.7 FM also organized a video conferencing session with reputed professors through Skype in which students from other BIG FM Stations in Rajasthan – Bikaner, Ajmer, Udaipur and Jodhpur, could also get feedbacks and suggestions.
Coaching institutes in Kota have utilized BIG FM’s extensive network to reach out to the aspiring students, who, otherwise most of the time remain clueless of the available institute in the city.
