Super Bowl Advertising The Super Bowl is an outstanding event for die-hard football fans, general sports enthusiasts and businesses. The Super Bowl features three big events: the game, half-time show and commercials. The commercials bring entertainment and an opportunity to sell to the largest television audience of the year. But, if a commercial does not entice consumers to purchase the product, it is not successful. A funny and/or memorable Super Bowl commercial is a waste of time and money if it does not stimulate sales. According to CNBC, the average cost of a 30-second ad during Super Bowl LIII is $5.25 million; that’s a serious blow to the advertising budget. Think back. During the year, how many times do you really pay attention to commercials? How many times do you leave the room during commercials? If you are like most people, the answer is “more times than not.” So what makes the Super Bowl commercials different? The answer is “anticipation”. The commercials are part of the Super Bowl trifecta. Everyone expects the commercials to be unique and humorous. Even the really bad commercials are talked about the next day over coffee at the office. The data shows that Super Bowl commercials are worth the money; 8.4% of 111 million viewers is money well spent. The million dollar question remains “why don’t consumers watch commercials throughout the rest of the year?” Probably because they don’t believe it is worthy of their time. Viewers understand that this air time is “special”. Super Bowl ads are designed to resonate with the target market. These ads communicate more than just the product; trust, loyalty and commitment are key components between the company and its consumer/viewer. A few companies consistently produce high quality, entertaining and effective advertising (i.e., advertising that entices the consumer to purchase the product).
