NBC Will Push Super Bowl 2015 Commercials Straight To Tumblr


Fans of Super Bowl commercials — we know you’re out there — who want instant replay will be able to turn to Tumblr on Super Bowl Sunday.

NBC Sports Digital today announced the launch of a Tumblr page that will host Super Bowl ads immediately after they air during the broadcast of the game Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.

The page, at, is currently populated with content created by NBC Sports’ marketing media team and re-blogs of NFL-related Tumblr posts. On game day, the page will turn into a hub for Super Bowl TV ads.

NBC Sports is live streaming Super Bowl XLIX to desktops and tablets, but some of the ads in the live stream will be different than those on the television broadcast. Only the TV broadcast ads will be posted on the Tumblr page, giving online viewers a look at what the larger audience will likely be talking about.

“We recognize that Super Bowl TV ads are must-see content for many viewers, and we’re thrilled to connect our digital audience to the spots in a seamless manner immediately after they air on television,” Rick Cordella, senior vp and general manager of digital media for NBC Sports, said in a release. “Tumblr is a visually-rich, social-friendly platform that is perfect to showcase the Super Bowl TV ads. We are optimistic this experience will be the first step in creating a more robust NBC Sports destination on Tumblr.”

Of course, viewers will have many other options for Super Bowl ad viewing. Most advertisers post full versions of their commercials in advance on YouTube. Facebook is also expected to be in the mix this year.

Marketing Land is tracking the Super Bowl advertising run-up to the big game. We’ll post teasers during the days before the game and post all the official ads on Super Bowl Sunday here.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
