The Changing Customer: Reaching Gen Z During the Super Bowl and Beyond

The Big Game continues to be the go-to venue for the world’s top brands to spar against each other for the public’s attention.

In the same way, NFL teams see the Super Bowl as the final test of the gridiron, brands and agencies see it as a winner-takes-all competition of television salesmanship. Gen Z is expected to account for 40 percent of all…

Underwear and Socks are the Big Winners of Super Bowl LIII

Shoppers Flock to Mobile to Buy Necessities During and After the Big Game On February 3, Super Bowl LIII attracted nearly 100 million viewers, many of them devout football fans… and shoppers. Between plays, during the half-time show and even during ads, viewers were shopping. And this year, retailers were ready for them. Marketers who prepared both an online and in-app presence scored big before, during and after the game. Shopping in all product categories started slowly just before the game and steadily picked up…

Bored During the Big Game? How VR and AR Can Help Make a Lasting Impression

Unless you love a good defensive game, Super Bowl LIII turned into a bit of a dud for millions of people who tuned in. The 13-3 Patriots triumph was the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever, providing little excitement for neutral fans. Maroon 5 took flak from critics for its halftime show, and there didn’t seem to be as many standout ads as in years past. Yet if we know anything, it’s that the NFL’s showcase event will come back swinging again next year, and as networks and advertisers seek ways to keep the huge audience engaged,…

How AI is Driving a New Era of TV Advertising

In 2007, I was as an Assistant Media Buyer purchasing local television spots for General Motors in a few markets in the south. My job was to pick local news or local shows and allocate budgets based off of the demographics those content sources were likely to reach. The only metric of success was posting 90%, which meant we needed to fulfill 90% of the buy to the people we said we’d reach. If the goal was to reach 10 million people aged 35 to 54, a successful buy meant reaching at least 9 million of them. The campaigns…

Unfortunately, we identified several websites that went down during this peak time, undoing so much hard work with each second of poor performance.…

Why Local Search Is the Real Winner on Super Bowl Sunday

The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event of the year - last year, 111.3 million viewers tuned in, making Super Bowl LI the fifth most-watched TV broadcast in history.
