Well, we are just two days away from the Super Bowl...

...two days away from all the parties, the food, the ( YAWN ) halftime show, and oh..two football teams - the Kansas City Chiefs vs the San Francisco 49ers. All of what I just mentioned is great, however, I would guess that most teams that win it all are forgotten as the years go by, but almost everyone remembers their favorite Super Bowl commercial. This is WHY advertisers will spend so much for their spots to run during the HUGE game. Entertainment Weekly says that "... a 30-second spot now costs a cool $7 milup from the still scary (but far more reasonable) $700,000 price tag of the mid-90s"   

So....is that kind of money worth spending?

I would say so - check this little fact out - "The Super Bowl has reached over 100 million viewers nearly every year since Super Bowl 44 in 2010, according to ratings agency Nielsen" Wow. Now all your company has to do is have an effective commercial air - one that grabs your attention, makes you laugh, or cry, OR both. Do you have a favorite Super Bowl commercial? Most people do. Here is mine:

Yes, it will bring a tear to your eye - once again, effective and smart....PEOPLE remember this ad, and this was 11 years ago.
