At last count, it cost $2.4 million to have your company's ad shown during the NFL Super Bowl. Combined with the costs of media planning, creative agencies, film production and associated campaign elements, you're looking at a long haul to retrieve your money.
Most people's concept of advertising is limited to the (sometimes woeful) ads they see on TV, or the billboards they drive past. Seeing these, they automatically assume that effective advertising is out of their reach. This couldn't be farther from the truth.
