There's a reason many Las Vegas small business owners target their advertising towards consumers who have completed a four-year college degree. It's because, typically, university graduates earn $29,106 more per year than those with only a high school diploma, according to The Federal Reserve.
There are, according to Nielsen, 357,478 college graduates living in the Las Vegas area. In total, this population generates $27.8 billion in annual take-home pay. To tap into a similar pool of spending power, a marketer would need to reach 619,629 consumers who did not go beyond high school.
The number of people reached by a campaign is, generally, what determines the cost of advertising. So, for a Clark County small business owner operating on a tight marketing budget, spending can be kept in check by targeting those consumers with the most money to spend. In this case, college graduates.
Of all the advertising options available to local business owners, Las Vegas radio, by far, reaches the most college graduates.
Each week, local radio stations reach 90% of all college grads. This is significantly more than were reached by local TV, newspapers, social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, or streaming audio services like Pandora or Spotify.
The value to Las Vegas small business owners to ensure their advertising reaches college grads becomes profoundly apparent based on the Nielsen data below. This shows, compared to high school graduates, college graduates are
- 14% more likely to use a local tax preparation professional
- 25% more likely to move/change address
- 35% more likely to use a local travel agent
- 79% more likely to purchase a car or truck
- 80% more likely to use a real estate agent
- 91% more likely to invest in home improvements or remodeling
- 229% more likely to see a house/condo/coop
- 259% more likely to refinance a home
Las Vegas radio's ability to precisely target those consumers with more money to spend illustrates why Deloitte, the world's largest business consulting firm, recommends that the medium be included in the mix of all companies that buy advertising.
"One might think," says Deloitte, "since radio in North America is popularly perceived to be largely free and ad-supported, that it would appeal mainly to demographics that are of less interest to those who buy advertising. The exact opposite is true."
"The August 2018 Deloitte Global survey found that the percentage of Americans who report listening to live radio is higher for those who are working, those with more education, and those with higher incomes."
