Love is all around us…Happy Valentine’s Day!

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

“New found happiness, unrequited love and of course broken hearts…all kinds of love, and the greatest emotion that has inspired songwriters and musicians for decades and will, no doubt, continue to do so for many more to come.

At some point, everyone is likely to have had the feeling of sadness when love hasn’t worked out or, of course, experienced the joy of love at its best. So we all have that one song that soundtracks those moments. Music has the power to lift your mood when you’re down, whilst also lifting you even higher when you’re elated.

People think love songs have to be slow and emotional, but they don’t. That’s why on our Valentine’s Day playlist we have picked a couple of great up-tempo tracks to start things off. Head to Youtube and see how many times Bruno Mars Marry You has been used as part of marriage proposals, this one is our favourite!

Check out our ’14 for the 14th’ playlist below and be sure to follow KVH Studios Music on Spotify for all the latest songs we love, updated weekly with the new music tracks we’ve added to our in-store music services for top brands!”

How Much Does a Commercial Radio Ad Cost?

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

So you’re looking to create a radio advertising campaign and, naturally, you’re curious about how much it’s going to cost you. With a voiceover that needs paying, sound effects, a music bed, production and editing time, it must cost a fortune, right? Well, the simple fact is, a radio commercial for your business costs less than you would think. Just contact us on 0113 233 7800 for a quick and easy quote. Of course, the final cost can vary depending on several variables, but let’s take a look at a simple breakdown and what you get for your money…

To Play or Not to Play – That is the Question!

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

We can’t believe it either – February, already!? The first month of the year has already flown by in a heartbeat, and talking of heartbeats, February also means the start of the two week run up to Valentine’s day for retailers. Love it or hate it, the amount of people buying their sweethearts chocolates, flowers and giant teddy bears will be almost unavoidable on the high streets. So should love songs feature on your in-store music service to get those hearts fluttering, or will it just annoy everyone else?

Like many holidays in the year, it can be a difficult question to answer when it comes to acknowledging them in your business. It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest events in the shopping calendar and therefore the perfect opportunity for increased sales if you get it right. This is why audio is the perfect way to enhance holidays such as Valentine’s; it’s not as intrusive or obvious as a huge display or aisles and aisles of red and pink, but it’s just as effective.

The right music can get people thinking without even realising it, having the power to take minds away from the hustle and bustle of a shop floor to a more relaxing and comfortable state of mind – especially with love songs. As we’ve looked at before, the amount of benefits this positive mindset of customers has on sales is almost uncountable, from increasing dwell time to inspiring extra purchases.
