Now that we have the most boring sports weekend of 2012 out of the way (come on, who could stay awake for the Australian Open, and the Pro Bowl – really?), it’s time to crank up the Super Bowl hype. Advertisers are certainly obliging. Some are already previewing the game spots that they’ll be spending $3 million to air.
Feeling left out of the action because you can’t spring for that kind of scratch? Not to worry. Just a couple of clicks will take you to Networked Insights’ Media Optimization Guide, Super Bowl XLVI Edition, a treasure chest of ideas that can help you make every ad perform like a Super Bowl ad
Topics the guide covers include using real-time social data to understand your audiences and deliver them relevant content. We reveal how you can reach NFL fans without an NFL budget, and how you can overcome a media lockout. The guide also has tips on leveraging social data to understand a TV show’s audience before it airs. And, it takes a look at how you can improve your TV marketing with real-time audience intelligence.
The guide has some entertaining information on two aspects of the big event – the halftime show and the program that NBC airs immediately after the game – that are stories unto themselves. All I’ll say is with what we’ve been hearing ahead of Madonna’s appearance, I can’t wait for the social chatter as her performance grows nearer and once she hits the stage (prediction: it isn’t going to be all bouquets). And, if you’re doubting that The Voice is going to keep football fans tuned in postgame, you might be surprised by who’ll be rooting for Team Adam, Team Blake, Team Cee Lo and Team Christina.
Finally, throughout the guide you’ll find examples of how Networked Insights tools make all these insights possible – Audience Sync, to discover who is talking about your product or service across the entire social web; Content Sync, which taps real-time data to better understand target audiences; and Media Sync, which enables networks, brands and agencies to leverage real-time data to uncover where their audience is consuming media. Together, they provide a playbook for you to unleash Super Bowl-power advertising.
