We all know of the mind boggling numbers associated with the purchase of a 30 second Super Bowl ad. Every year advertisers attempt to justify the cost of such an endeavor. What other outlet offers the opportunity to reach 100 million viewers at one time? There are plenty of valid reasons why an advertiser may want to spend their resources in this forum – brand awareness, to keep up with the competition, announce a new product – but in any case, the investment should generate incremental sales for a positive ROI over time.

Here at Lenskold Group, we want to support the discipline of planning to maximize marketing ROI from such efforts.
