MediaCom US's Chief Client Officer Adam Komack has been offering advice on Super Bowl marketing to Bloomberg TV viewers as part of the "In The Loop" show
With the biggest day in US advertising rapidly approaching, Adam explained how today's integrated social, digital and TV marketing campaigns began with MediaCom's work on VW's The Force ad in 2011.
This was the first ad to be pre-released ahead of the game and now all brands adopt a similar strategy. The impact is that the headline $4.5m cost of a 30-second spot is just the start of the investment required.
Adam warned that when the cost of digital activity, social media activity and additional teaser content is included brands should be budgeting $6-$10m in total.
