Marketing expert Scott Hamula says those sponsors are also finding more ways than ever to expand that audience through the use of social media.
“It’s likely that Super Bowl XLV will have more ads directing viewers online than ever before as marketers look for greater ROE — return on engagement,” said Hamula.
“In a tough economy, marketers more than ever scrutinize their advertising. They want to know what’s working and what’s not. CEOs, COOs, CFOs and CMOs like numbers. So, short of using elusive sales figures, ads that drive traffic to a microsite or that get consumers talking online are valued because they are immediately accountable. Ad agencies can say, ‘Look, this campaign is successful! We got x number of hits at our site or “likes” on our brand’s Facebook page.’ Plus, brands get the added benefit of interacting with consumers in some sort of virtual experiential environment which could result in a strong ROE for the ad dollars spent.”
An associate professor of integrated marketing communications in the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, Hamula points out that advertisers begin making connections with viewers way before kickoff. Pepsi, for example, is using the Internet to engage consumers with an opportunity to view five consumer-created Doritos and five Pepsi Max ads and vote on which will air during the Super Bowl.
“It’s fascinating how a marketer can drive traffic to a website and have people attentively watch just commercials!”
Hamula says that advertisers appear to be bullish on the February 6 game, which will be televised by Fox, as ad inventory sold out quicker than in recent years. He notes that some advertisers who cut back in the past are returning (BMW), and with a vengeance (Pepsi). Some newcomers to the Super Bowl include Groupon, Best Buy, Pizza Hut and CarMax. For the first time in about a decade, the big three Detroit automakers — General Motors, Chrysler and Ford — are all buying time.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
