Top 3 Small Business Marketing Lessons from Super Bowl XLIX

Here it is 2015, and it has been a few years since I have written Super Bowl marketing lessons. Since the last writing in 2010, we’ve moved past an era when the Internet was a new frontier to a time when social media is so richly engrained in our culture it has always existed for […]

Are Big Super Bowl Ad Spends Logical?

According to CBS, in 2010 a 30-second Super Bowl ad spot cost $2.5-$3.0 million. To those of us whose sales are far lower, this seems wildly excessive. Why would companies continue to set aside mega-budgets for their commercials to be seen on Super Sunday? There is much exposure on game day, of course. But is […]

Super Bowl 2010 Commercials: Consumer Goods, Orgs

I’m putting together a master list of Super Bowl XLVI ads, along with links to each advertiser’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Here’s what I have so far in the categories of consumer goods (non beverage…beer and soda has its own category…more to come) and league / government commercials. Anyone care to help fill in the […]

Learning from Super Bowl Music & Entertainment

Besides the game itself and the commercials, another big attraction surrounding the Super Bowl are the musical performances. Each year, big names perform during half time shows. (On an irrelevant note, The Who are the entertainment for XLIV. Has anyone else noticed the network “playing it safe” with old-school acts since the Janet Jackson fiasco […]

Learning from Super Bowl Tourism Effect

It is no coincidence that each year’s Super Bowl location is awarded years before anyone knows which teams will be playing. The influx of vacationers and fans is a windfall to the city. The tourism, restaurant, souvenir, and entertainment industries (to name a few) all benefit. Your small business (or any other size, for that […]

Marketing Opportunity in the Domain Registration Industry

Most small business owners know that positioning their companies as providing the same products or services in the same way as the industry giant can lead to disaster. Kind of like a Chihuahua waving a red flag in front of a bull; one twitch from the giant and they’re dead. Studying the competition and acting […]

The “O” in SWOT. Super Bowl Style

It may be tempting for small business marketers to roll their eyes at the thought of spending $3 million on a single ad spot. Smart marketers, however, pay attention. To them, SWOT is more than a misspelled law enforcement team. They know that strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats can arise at any moment. Another’s weakness […]

2009 Super Bowl Ad – Switching Domain Registrars

After five years of progressively more offensive Super Bowl advertising, yesterday was the last straw. I’ve switched 36 domain names from GoDaddy to NameCheap.com. Revisiting the domain registrar list, I was pleased to find that it had exploded since I last researched. Not really into checking out all of GoDaddy’s 952 competitors, I looked into […]
