SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, February 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — At a hefty reported cost of $6.5 million for a 30-second spot, the return on investment (ROI) of a Super Bowl ad has always been a hotly debated topic among marketers. This hasn’t deterred big and emerging tech brands, however, which are increasingly making up a good portion of the ad lineup.
Why the Super Bowl? The annual event is viewed as the ultimate consumer outreach platform. Viewership figures are unparalleled and, in an age where advertising is seen as obtrusive, the audience actually looks forward to the ads. The onset of the pandemic in 2020 has also underscored how technology has become an intrinsic part of consumers’ lives. For tech brands looking to ramp up awareness and consumer adoption of their product/service, the Super Bowl may just be a worthwhile investment.

What Methodology is Used to Review Super Bowl Ads?
The ADPLAN framework is a proprietary model created by professors at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Professor Isaac says that successful commercials need to:
• Capture Attention
• Be Distinctive
• Communicate the brands’ Positioning
• Achieve strong Linkage between the content in the commercial and the brand name
• Result in positive Amplification after the ad airs, and
• Fit the Net equity that has been created by prior brand campaigns.
