30+ years experience.  
We know what we're doing.

The team at Active Instore have worked in the instore music and messaging space for a decade, and have over 30-years of commercial radio experience in content development, production and consumer targeting.

We are experts in consumer profiling, and know how to design entertaining and on-brand music formats, with appropriate branding and tactical messaging, designed to increase customer (and staff!) engagement.

The Research

There is plenty of research that outlines the positive influence music has on consumers, and on their enjoyment whilst shopping.

Customer ‘linger’ time in your store provides an opportunity to enhance the customer experience (via enjoyable music) and to grow basket size through the promotional and commercial messaging that can be inserted within the programming.

Our clients say “it’s like a commercial radio station but much better”. It’s helping sell their stock and services, without all the other clutter, talk and competitor advertising that airs on commercial radio stations.

Archie Bradley (Dog)
Leisure and Snack Director

Archie, often called Arch Nemesis, is responsible for all leisure activities and ordering of snacks.

Unhelpfully, this means Active Instore tends to be fully stocked with Schmacko's and little else.

Arch lives in hope that one day ‘who let the dogs out’ will make it onto one of our partners branded radio station playlists. It hasn’t happened yet ...

We keep it simple.
