Extreme Reach Super Bowl 49 Brand Effectiveness Study

19,273 views

Published on

This year, a 30-second TV commercial during the Super Bowl cost about $4.5 million. And with that hefty, record-setting price tag comes a question we hear every year: which ad did the best? Which brand made the greatest impact with their Super Bowl investment? We’d like to help answer those questions.

In this study, we’ve compiled insights that reveal which brands ran the most effective Super Bowl ads based on brand lift data. We've analyzed the responses from the audience as a whole and looked at specific demographic segments as well.

Methodology The study was conducted across Internet-connected devices via the Extreme Reach platform and included 46,383 Super Bowl viewers from around the United States.

Findings The percentage change in likelihood to purchase the advertised products and services, among the exposed group, ranged from -3.30% to 23.40%.
