Survey Says: Super Bowl Ads Still Sell
Despite the uncertain economy, three out of four Americans are still more likely to research or buy a product after seeing it advertised during the Super Bowl, according to a study of 1,000 Americans fielded by Venables Bell & Partners.
Of respondents polled, 40% were optimistic about the future of the economy in 2010; 24% pessimistic; and 36% unsure. However, the majority of consumers state that advertising in the Super Bowl is responsible vs. irresponsible, and 64% would be disappointed if advertising during the game disappeared.
When asked what they were most likely to discuss the Monday after, Americans are just as likely to discuss ads, as they are plays. In fact, 66% still remember their favorite brand advertiser from last year's Super Bowl while only 39% remember who won the game.
Advertising more memorable than the game? Love that!
