Without a question, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 31 unanswered points against the Atlanta Falcons will be a Super Bowl memory that will be etched in the minds of sports fans forever. The unprecedented comeback was nothing short of amazing and Tom Brady has solidified himself as the Greatest of All-Time. Obviously, we can all talk about the controversy surrounding Brady and the Patriots, but more importantly will we remember any of the commercials during the big game?
Ad buyers estimate the average cost of a 30-second advertisement crept up to a whopping $5 million this year for the Super Bowl or the equivalent of $166,667 per second. The Super Bowl is expected to serve up more than 110 million viewers. According to Forbes, this year’s $5 million price tag equals about 4 and 5 cents. An average commercial at between $200k to $500k for 2 to 7 million viewers which equates to 8 to 10 cents more per viewer. By all accounts this seems like a great spend right? Even Forbes, Huffington Post and every large marketing agency say if you can afford it utilize the Super Bowl for your Ad Spend.
However, most companies cannot afford this type of spend and the one’s that can are throwing good money away. Not to mention, 2017 Super Bowl Commercials were less than stellar this year!
According to Communicus’ new study about advertising during the big game showed that four out of five commercials during the last Super Bowl failed to make people buy or build product interest, the research firm said.
Key findings from the Communicus’ research, based on a nationally representative survey of 3,000 adults 18-65:
- Only 10% of consumers remember the average Super Bowl ad and know the brand being advertised.
- 80% of Super Bowl commercials fail to change consumer opinions/intentions regarding a brand.
- Only 33% of consumers can remember seeing a typical Super Bowl commercial in the first place.
While the viewing audience for the Super Bowl has only increased 300% since its inception, ad rates for the game have risen by 12,000%. “Super Bowl advertising retains a strong allure for marketers,” said Ms. Jeri Smith, President & CEO, Communicus, Inc. “This is despite the clear and consistent lack of ROI for the vast majority of brands investing in the Big Game.”
