  • I have used Hits Radio Advertising with a number of clients and am always incredibly happy with the results it delivers and the excellent support and service we receive. I also find Hits Radio Advertising excellent value compared to other traditional media options and radio continues to work incredibly well for us in this digital age.

    We monitor enquiry levels very closely with all clients and Forth always delivers on our key objectives in all campaigns – I would thoroughly recommend Hits Radio Advertising to any business thinking of using radio.

    Craig Simpson, Managing Director, Jigsaw Media

  • In the past I committed the company to a very heavy newspaper campaign that previously worked well, but over the last five years the readership dwindled.

    I initially tried other radio stations in Glasgow primarily due to their costs being less than Hits Radio Advertising, but they didn't work. I was approached by the Sales Team and I took a chance on their recommendations.

    We immediately received a 50% increase in our online activity with Hits Radio Advertising being the only change in our marketing for this period. The increase can only be down to them! The Hits Radio Advertising Sales Team are great with their advice and they care about the results.

    Thank you.

    Mark Watson, Owner, Advanced Windows

    The Hits Radio Advertising team understand our key objectives and always come back with innovative ideas and a range of scripts. We have seen a significant rise in the traffic to our inward investment website through the sponsorship of the drive time and home run shows for Choose Lanarkshire.

    The team are great to work with, from the Senior Account Manager to the Creative and Digital team, I have always found them professional, organised and committed to achieving our goals.
