There has been a lot of buzz around the Super Bowl over the years, from the performances to the sponsors and, obviously, the teams that are playing. But while all of these create excitement and turn the sports event into one of the most profitable one night sports events each year, there is one thing that makes them just as much money if not more:…the advertisements! There are thousands of people in attendance to see the game live, but there are millions that watch the event on television.
This is where the advertising spots bring in the big money. They are paying tens of hundreds of dollars for a spot on the SuperBowl ad reel and for good measure. The exposure is huge, so they have to make sure the advertisements are also good as millions of people will see it!
