Here you will find target audiences just waiting to be romanced by advertisers and regional councils – you just need to know where to look.

Opportunities for Advertising in Toowoomba
Let’s take a look at Toowoomba advertising opportunities.
Demographic breakdowns for commercial television are as follows:
- Teen and youth audiences (younger millennials and generation z) who pair their love of culture to products and events
- Conservatives (consumers of a large audience share) with a focus on serial programming, current affairs and news, and gardening and lifestyle
- Socially conscious audiences consuming alternative content (national broadcasters)
- The key 24-54 demographic who exist on a diet of local / imported prime time shows (prime time being the desired timeslot for many advertisers)
Radio station audiences fall into a similar pattern as above. We see tastes in television align with consumable audio media and, thusly, can advertise directly to that market in a different method. This obviously comes with a delicate approach and careful strategy so as to not oversaturate the market with messages. In the right hands, this is achievable.
Youth listeners tend to gravitate towards either commercial networks (syndicated at some time slots) or the national broadcaster. While advertising opportunities are nil in terms of the ABC, there are prime opportunities on the other stations in which to reach the target market. Spot ads, quirky humour, regional council advertisements – they all have a home on commercial radio and all can find their way to the ears of the youth market.
We also see conservative audiences here who enjoy traditional programming, including the option of talkback, and happily consume advertising for local events and products. Paired with this is the families market who are looking for appropriate yet fun content which falls in line with those seeking religious or Christian content as well.
There are a number of newspapers that service Toowoomba and surrounds. There is capacity here for reaching a variety of audiences via a more traditional means of advertising. Blockbuster, showcase campaigns can find traction here, as too with active spaces like billboard advertisement.
