What Do Super Bowl XLIX Commercials Cost?
In a day and age where so many people watch the Super Bowl just to see the commercials, the creators of those commercials must make sure that they are a true hit especially considering what the cost of a Super Bowl commercial costs.
According to experts in the field, in 2014 a 30 second Super Bowl ad cost around $4 million dollars while a 60 second ad didn't come at a discount, yet was valued at $8 million.
According to the Wall Street Journal, NBC and SB Nation, the value is estimated at $4.5 million per 30 second ad and you guessed it, $9 million per 60 second ad. This does not include however the cost of making the ad, just the ad space during Super Bowl XLIX.
It is believed as well though that if you buy multiple ads throughout the night that a discount is given to such clients.
The age old question is always : Did the value of the commercial meet the results? Some would say yes if the message is received correctly while others say its for big business to promote their brand and tote their wealth.
Either way it makes for much anticipation and ultimately a lot of people watch the ads regardless if they are a hit or not.
